Yes, we’re considering providing R integration with Excel in the future, the number of votes on this item helps us gauge overall community interest in this, so please pull in others if you think they’d like this as well.

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.

Not bad. Not sure it will be ever done. The feature is likely to change Excel like Pivot table did in the past.
