    We are pleased to announce that the first set of Power Query features are now available in version 16.29 and greater. At this stage you can refresh from text, CSV, XLSX, JSON and XML files.

    Refer to the following blog post for more details:
    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Excel-Blog/Get-amp-Transform-Power-Query-in-Excel-for-Mac-Phase-1/ba-p/876840

    I encourage you to try the new functionality and share your feedback with us via Send a Smile/Frown at the top right corner in your Excel for Mac.

    Hey @Guy. Thanks for the response. I can definitely understand the cost and the lift, but I think the frustration you are hearing in all of our responses is because this enhancement request was submitted in 2015 and has spent over a year and a half as the number one most requested feature. A staged delivery plan is a great option, but I think most of us feel this stage (refresh only) should have come 18 months ago. I think it would help us positively support this development if you would share where this work is on the product development timeline in relation to the other enhancements being considered. Also, that would help us know for how much longer we need to keep using something with parity cost to the windows platform, but not parity in features.

    Nope. Sorry. Go back and try again. As I said in my previous post: "We don't simply want a way to refresh PQ connections in Excel for Mac, we NEED a way to create and edit M-Code in PQ for Mac. And, frankly, we need it yesterday. Figure it out."

    I am still confused about this update. I am running v.16.27 and in my XLSX file, I still do not see a way to edit a PowerQuery connection made in Excel for Windows. If this isn't possible with the most recent "fast insiders" release than this isn't an answer to our request at all. We don't simply want a way to refresh PQ connections in Excel for Mac, we NEED a way to create and edit M-Code in PQ for Mac. And, frankly, we need it yesterday. Figure it out.
