    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

    Hi Excel Team,

    Already more than 2 years and absolutely no progress! We need not only R but also Python support! How is it possible that power query in Power BI gets all the love and nothing in Excel?
    Can we get an update ASAP?

    As many have said R (and Python) in Excel is an evolutionary step. I can't not tell you how important this is. I run here in Oslo the UseR! chapter and I work as IT consultant; this thing will solve so many problems and will open insights to upper management is so many fields and companies. This lack of R and Python is a big issue, you might have only 136 votes, but we are not "a regular vote" the R community is small with a massive impact worldwide, so please don't evaluate us on that. You have a comment from Imke Feldmann check her out and the positive impact she has over 10 of thousand of Microsoft user, maybe I can get on board Marco Russo and Alberto Ferrari on this one, maybe that can help ;-) ?

    You have the R script in Power BI, why not here? Maybe you want to change it to Run "ML Script", so you can Call Python, R, AzureML, etc but please MAKE EXCEL GREAT AGAIN and pull R Scripts.... (I'm talking obviously about Power Query in Excel)

    Any update here guys? Power BI got it, why not Office 365? I really need this :-( !!!!

    Guys, now you have Visual Studio R Tools, Power BI with R, Azure ML with R, SQL Server and R, Microsoft Server... please go with this, if we can turn just 1% of Excel users into R user, then it will be a real revolution, around 250K R user are around the world, 1% of excel users will be 6 million people!! This is the future for Office, also integration with Word, so to publish research papers etc.
