I have Microsoft Excel 2016 installed. It has a version of Power Query provided but it doesn't have the 'From Salesforce Objects' option from Data > Get Data > From Other Sources drop down. When I try to install the MS-PowerQuery download add-in, it says that PowerQuery is already included and doesn't install. Is there a way to get the Power Query SF Connection? Could it be the version of Excel? It came with MS-Office Home subscription that came with the PC. Thanks.

  • Have you installed the Salesforce extension?

The Salesforce feature is only available in certain versions of Excel 2016. They confused matters by changing the name from Power Query to "Get and Transform". https://support.office.com/en-us/article/where-is-get-transform-power-query-e9332067-8e49-46fc-97ff-f2e1bfa0cb16

Advanced business analytics features available with Office 365 ProPlus, Office 2016 Professional, Office 2016 Professional Plus, and Excel 2016 standalone.
