        Hi folks,

        Thanks for your passion around this. We’ve been discussing this item off and on for some time now and we’d love to get your input.

        The reason we’ve resisted this is because the R runtime & various packages (and updating their versions) aren’t straightforward for other users to install. This limits sharing such queries across a workgroup.

        What do you think?

        For others reading this that’d like us to prioritize this work, please be sure to add your vote since we’re prioritizing our backlog based on these.

        thanks

        I understand the resistance, because it is a global issue for an organization to solve across applications. However, I don't think Excel is the place to solve it (nor within Power BI). The scripting to validate the library versions already exists; it is up to the user or organization to keep controls in place and use the tool appropriately. Giving us the tools at all would be great!

              Hi Ken,

              Thanks for logging this one, and thanks to others for voting this up.. We’ve actually had this on our list to get to for some time and have been balancing doing this against other… The more the community helps us rank it higher, the better the signal on overall importance… so, for those that haven’t voted for this but want it, do vote!

              thanks

                Hi all,

                I’m happy to announce that your input has had another direct impact on the product. In this case, a decision has been made to have Power Pivot be available in all Windows editions (“SKUs”) of Excel! This means the Business, Home, Standard, etc.. all of these will have Power Pivot. As your comments have indicated, Power Pivot has moved from targeting a specialized audience to generally useful capability for working with data in spreadsheets. As such, it makes sense to make this as broadly available as possible.

                We have started rolling this change out with the April Current Channel updates (Builds 9330 and beyond). I’m also happy to announce that these SKU changes will be reflected on the upcoming 2019 version as well.

                Thank you for pushing for this!
