      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 believe this can significantly strengthen Excel's position as a data tool. Should've been done already.

          Hi all,

          I wanted to share with you that the new query caching mechanism in Excel has been deployed to Office Insiders starting from Excel version 1801 (build 9001.*). At this stage, we would like to allow some “baking” time as we monitor the feature health metrics.

          In this scope, we need your help to ensure a quality release! I encourage you to try the following scenarios and share your feedback:
          1. Run Refresh All on a complex workbook with multiple query dependencies. Does it work faster?

          2. Run Refresh All on a complex workbook with multiple query dependencies. Do you see any issues with your data?

          3. Refresh a single query several times. Do you see any issues with your data?

          - The Excel Team

              Thanks for the feedback. We’ll consider this for a future release. Please continue to vote on this feature request which will increase its likelihood of getting in the product.

              In the meantime, you can also use Office Addins found on the Excel 2013 insert tab. You can create your own Office Addins or use those from the store – many of which are visualizations. The Office Add-ins essentially allow you to use javascript and javascript libraries such as d3.js to create what ever you need.

              Thanks,
              Scott [MSFT]

                    This needs to happen. I end up opening another instance of Excel.

                      Wow.

                      Thank you to all those participated in our survey. What an amazing number of responses, many of them with very deep content. We’re processing the over ten thousand responses(!), and already appreciate the time so many of you took to answer with passion and experience.

                      Please know this survey is used to help influence various topics – both on Python as well as other related topics that the comments started to bleed into. Given the passion, I want to be clear this remains an area of exploration for us, without any specific timeline.

                      We’ll provide updates as we progress on this feature request.

                      Thanks!
