Excel for Web

1. Export to CSV

2. Show Details in PivotTables
We've added a new button on the ribbon under the 'PivotTable Analyze' tab called Show Details, this button allows you to drill into your PivotTables. Previously, you were able to double-click a value cell in the PivotTable and create a new table to further analyze the details for that value. This button makes this existing capability easier to find and use. This functionality was already available for Web users.

Excel for Windows

1. Create Power BI Connected Tables in Excel
A new Insert Table option is now available for the Power BI Datasets pane in Excel. It enables users to create a connected table directly in Excel. This streamlines the workflow of adding data and is friendlier to more Excel users. This is now available for all Windows and Web users. Read more here >
