Hi there

I use msquery a lot in EXCEL -- after latest update the function is MISSING !!!!!!!!

(Note update -- see end of this post -- now solved).

should be 3rd one down on right hand side.

That's a 100% NO-NO for me -- unless they've moved the menu to a different area/ I haven't seen any notification yet as to functionality being deprecated --unless another sneaky attempt to get people to switch to Office/365.

Here's what it SHOULD be (before update)

Added -- got a version from work - uninstalled my old copy and totally re-installed the work version (black theme also working nicely)

Working again -- something must have got hosed up during the last updates (was one of those "El cheapo" versions -- probably if you have those don't update unless you really have to.

Need to do all the language stuff --but at least it's all WORKING again including Viso and Project.

Although it says Standard - it still includes viso (don't really use) and project which I do use and like even though I believe Ms intend to retire it.

Black theme also works on it too -- never did in previous versions !!!
