    New features of Excel

    Hi,

    Is this the right forum to talk about our (Excel Forum contributors) support for new features in Excel 2013?

    I was quite surprised to find out that not many discussions here, even not at all, are on a very important tool built in Excel 2013 - Power Query (from the power's family).

    Do you think, like me, that it's important to have such category - like vba, general etc - called, maybe, BI tool.

    Hope to here from you.
    Please * if you like the answer

    I think the Power Tools are more for dealing with "big data" (hundreds of thousands or millions of records).

    I also think a proper database software is more suited for "big data".

    @Tony - even 100,000 records are making hard life to my Excel 2010, and so using power query instead to "clean" these 100,000 records should improve the running time of Excel. You may be right about using other more suited softwares but the "Power's" are still here to stay and I think many will need a tech support before fully understand how to use them (me included..)
