      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…

                      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 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,
                          Steve (MS Excel)

                              Hi all,

                              I’m happy to announce that your input has had another direct impact on the product. In this case, a decision has been made to have Power Pivot be available in all Windows editions (“SKUs”) of Excel! This means the Business, Home, Standard, etc.. all of these will have Power Pivot. As your comments have indicated, Power Pivot has moved from targeting a specialized audience to generally useful capability for working with data in spreadsheets. As such, it makes sense to make this as broadly available as possible.

                              We have started rolling this change out with the April Current Channel updates (Builds 9330 and beyond). I’m also happy to announce that these SKU changes will be reflected on the upcoming 2019 version as well.

                              Thank you for pushing for this!

                              I have paid for office 2013, and i am happy with it, I love to pay for office365 home, but as long as PowerPivot is not included, I will not upgrade, one lost customer and I suspect I am not alone.

                                    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

                                          Hi Ken,

                                          Thanks for logging this one, and thanks to others for voting this up.. We’ve actually had this on our list to get to for some time and have been balancing doing this against other… The more the community helps us rank it higher, the better the signal on overall importance… so, for those that haven’t voted for this but want it, do vote!

                                          thanks
                                          ash [MS XL]
