Changelog

Excel

Unhide multiple sheets at once

Create Data Types with Power Query

Use the Power Query Editor to create your own custom data types from any supported data source. Go to Power Query Editor, select several columns and use the Create Data Type button on the Transform tab of the ribbon to convert them into a new data type. Finally, load the data to the Excel grid, and easily consume and explore your custom data types with interactive data cards and formulas.

Create Power Platform dataflows from queries

You can now export your queries into Power Query templates that can be used to create new Power Platform dataflows. This feature allows users to easily create a cloud-powered Power Platform dataflow from the queries they already have in their Excel files so that their data can now be refreshed on the cloud and at regular intervals rather than manually.
