SharePoint 2013 and Power Query in Excel 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • After we launched Microsoft Power Query for Excel (Version: 2.27.4163.242) we started getting "Initialization of data source failed" errors when trying to export from SharePoint 2013 to Excel 2013. Judging by the timing, the two events seem related.

    I see that there's a newer version of Power Query available (2.32.4307.502). Does this resolve the "Initialization of data source failed" errors - or is it more likely that we simply have to abandon Excel's Power BI if we want to use SharePoint and Excel?
