    This is possible, it's just not very convenient. See steps below for changing the weights on borders. It doesnt function like word where you select between 1-3, but I think this will help for now.

    1) Press Cntrl + 1
    2) Click on the Borders tab
    3) Click on the Weight drop down and select the desired border. A little pencil comes out, click anywhere to exit
    4) Once you add the border type you are looking for, it will have the weight that you selected.

    ^^if that wasnt annoying enough, you have to redo these steps to put the normal border format back.

    Hi Deepak,

    Thanks for logging this issue. I agree this would be quite useful, especially as Power BI is emerging as a hub for business data.

    This request is slightly different than what PBI Desktop does. PBI Desktop essentially provides a Live Connect essentially deferring the model to the service and limiting the experience to visualizations so it’s not importing data into the report. So there’re two possible outcomes you could be looking for:
    1. Allow users to import data into Excel as query tables, just like one can from an external store like SQL Server or Oracle. This provides fine grained data retrieval.
    2. Create a new PivotTable that summarizes data on PBI service.

    The PBI Publisher addin performs #2. Is that what you’re looking for? Or would you rather have #1 if you had to choose?

    Others coming new to this suggestion, please be sure to add your…

    You are the real MVP of Excel users. I hate this issue and just accepted it as a limitation but your suggestion seems like a perfect solution to this.

    Hi everyone,
    Stock data types are now available to all Windows Office 365 subscribers with an English editing language installed (our data is only available in English at this time). You can find some instructions on how to use the feature here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/get-a-stock-quote-e5af3212-e024-4d4c-bea0-623cf07fbc54. The feature will also be appearing in Excel for Mac and Excel Online in early 2019 – as usual, Office Insiders will see the feature before the general population. See http://aka.ms/officeinsider for more info.

    One pro tip to locate instruments on a different exchange is to include an ISO country code alongside the symbol, for instance MX MSFT will tell Excel to grab Microsoft from the Mexican stock exchange instead of Nasdaq. We’ll be publishing more thorough documentation in the near future.

    We also acknowledge that this is only half of the requested feature in this suggestion – the current stock prices piece. The ability to…
