      Thanks for all of the votes – the team has definitely taken notice of the activity around this issue. We moved to SDI as a result of customer requests, but it looks like we’ve got work to do to really nail the use cases people care about. From a read over the comments, I see a number of cases that we will want to investigate further as we think through MDI vs SDI. We’ll get someone from the team to take a deeper look, and we may reach out to some of you for more clarification as we go. Thanks again for all the voting and passion here!

      John, Excel

      Guys, I looked it up. Microsoft is supporting 2010 through 2020. Good enough for me. if they aren't going to roll back to MDI, then they need to resolve the many issues we are all having in trying to use it. and fix the **** memory leak! both 2013 and 2016 had them, using my work configurations. we have a TON of corp loaded malware and virus protections as well as web blocking, email add-ins to report suspicious emails, etc. the leak is what caused my Excels to freeze, using exponentially more memory as the days passed until I couldn't work 10 minutes.

      Joy of joys, today I rolled back to Excel 2010! After fighting daily with Excel 2016, then 2013, for the last 7 weeks, I am looking forward to being productive again. Both newer versions are unsuitable for large, multi-workbook models. These last 2 “updates” caused me so much frustration and lost work! I am over-the-moon happy to be using 2010 again.
      Microsoft, are you listening to the users on this SDI issue? Are you addressing this with the 2019 version? Will the memory leak problem be fixed in 2019? Bueller?.... Bueller?.... Bueller?....

      Just used Windows + F to provide direct feedback to MS on this issue since they are ignoring all the votes here. Let's flood them with feedback!

      the lack of response is ridiculous.

      Mimi commented  · 

      David Portwood, you hit the nail on the head. so many of my models are now nearly unusable since I can't open more than a few workbooks at a time. Further, my IT dept found Excel 2016 unstable in our systems and rolled me back to 2013. (I asked, they wouldn't roll me back to 2010 which would be my preference.) Doesn't help with this issue but at least I can work more than 5 minutes without Excel freezing.
      MICROSOFT: SDI has been around 5 years already, and users are still having HUGE problems with it. This is not a slight blip on the way to a future bliss. This product needs to be fixed!

      Mimi commented  · 

      David, I couldn't agree more with your big mess statement!! I'm ready to ditch 2016 and go back to 2010 over this new "feature".

      Mimi commented  · 

      It seems to me that Microsoft has figured out how to do MDI and SDI. Why not make it an option to work either way? could be a checkbox in the app, or if that is too cumbersome, then an option on install.

      Mimi commented  · 

      I have multi workbook models that do not fair well in the SDI environment. I've crashed it several times since it was installed last week--minimum 1X a day but usually more. my computer memory is maxed out and I run Windows 10 and have an SSD drive.

        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!

                      This annoying problem I resolved by adding network file locations to my trusted folders. make sure to select the Include Subfolders box. ;-)
