Do all users of an Excel workbook need to have Power Query installed? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I create an Excel file that makes use of Power Query to fetch data, do all users that will open this file require Power Query be installed on their system?

  • Yes, they do need to have power query installed. If you fetch data using Power Query, that adds a new type of connection to the list of connections in that workbook. To refresh that connection, you need the Power Query addin to be installed and run.
