    Sub-Forum for Excel Power Tools (Power Query, Power Pivot & Power BI)

    Hi,

    Why don't the gurus consider starting a new sub-forum for the Excel power tools ( Power Query,Power Pivot,Power BI)??
    This is a relatively new area and predicted to be the future of Excel.


    Any thoughts?

    Re: Sub-Forum for Excel Power Tools

    I have moved this thread to the appropriate sub-forum.

    I would agree - I have recently started learning PowerQuery and Power BI myself with a view to using it in the workplace, and I have noticed a recent increase in queries of this nature across all of the forums I frequent. Hopefully the admins can set this up.

    There are suddenly lots more questions about Power Query and we have an expert in Sandy - can this be considered again? It would be a very useful sub-section.

    Re: Sub-Forum for Excel Power Tools

    I'm bumping this thread once again and adding to its title for clarification. The use of Power Query, in particular, is suddenly taking off. A section for PQ, Power Pivot and Power BI would be a great addition, I feel.

    I'll support it as well. I've written few articles on it in another forum, but having separate PQ/PP forum would be great.

    DAX is quite a bit different from traditional Excel formula and requires different mode of thinking.
