              We are looking at several ways to make formatting easier. This is an interesting approach that we will consider.

                  Good idea. We are definitely considering chart conditional formatting for a future release. Please continue to vote on it.

                  However, could you further elaborate on what you mean by “the value or content of the data labels”? Is the following scenario what you are looking for?

                  Scenario
                  Create a column chart that shows sales for various stores. (Sales on Y axis, Stores on X Axis.) Use color to represent the profitability of each store. Profit is a numerical value. (Bars in the chart show a gradient fill from green to red where green is high profit and red is low profit.)

                  Thanks,
                  Scott [MSFT]

                    Thanks for the suggestion Levi! We’ll be taking a look at this along with some other asks around conditional formatting. It’s a big help to see the things with the most votes, particularly within areas like formatting. So please keep the votes coming for things you want us to do sooner!

                        Thanks for the suggestion Jessica. We’ve got a few other suggestions on the site that are similar with scientific notation, etc. We’ll take a look at this area, and pay special attention to any cases that get a lot of votes. So please keep the votes coming to help us do a good job at prioritizing asks like this!

                            Thanks to Graham for starting this conversation. If you would also like Excel to maintain named range references and structured table references in the “applies to” field for Conditional Formatting rules, please add your comments and vote this one up. We will prioritize accordingly.

                            Thanks,

                                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

                                  Sometimes the column headers have to contain long text. My easy answer to allow as much info as possible to show up on one screen is to turn the text sideways and turn word wrap on. However, every time I push Refresh to get new data, Excel turns my text horizontal again. The odd thing is, the Wrao Text and Orientation buttons in the ribbon stay selected just as I had previously specified; Excel just ignores them until I deselect and reselect each option.

                                  It would be great to have a way to apply a format in the Field Settings dialog for each field dragged into the rows, columns, or values boxes in the Pivot Table Fields pane. If those formats could stick, and if the "Autofit column widths on update" option would honor them, keeping the chosen Wrap Text and Orientation options in mind, I wouldn't have to fiddle with my pivot tables every time the data needs refreshed.

                                      This is a minor positive side effect of floating tables: We would be able to have multiple tables next to each other on the same sheet without one table's overfilled word-wrapped cells uglifying the rows of the other table.
