Excel Power Add-ins

Will Microsoft continue to improve the Power add-ins to Excel or is the PowerBI designer intended to replace the excel add-ins?

Stacey, Microsft is giving all option to just ease of use and supporting existing and new user.

Some user likes excel so they can use add in OR you can use Power BI designer.

So according to me in futuer both of things have to exist toghether.

One more reason is to conserve money blogspot.in Washer dryers are quite costly to acquire Tips for Washer and Dryers by themselves, however will generally set you The Best Matching Washers and Dryers back less compared to purchasing two different Washer and Dryer Reviews 2017 home appliances individually we will certainly read more cover the price facet of purchasing a washer dryer

Hi Stacey,

 

both, Power BI Designer and Excel will co-exist also in the future. There are some features that are only supported in Excel (e.g. Linked Tables) which will probably never make it to Power BI Designer but all features currently only available in PBI Designer will sooner or later make it into Excel.

one of the main ideas of PBI Designer was to make Power Tools accessible to all users even if they do not have access (or licenses/subscriptions) for the latest version of Excel. 

At the moment PBI Designer is ahead of Excel in terms of features (bi-directional relationship, new DAX functions, ...) and also receives regular/monthly updates.

 

hth,
