Last month we announced the General Availability of Microsoft Power Query for Excel, and today we are excited to introduce a new quality update. Power Query is supported for your production scenarios and we will continue to deliver updates that provide added stability and performance benefits as we find any issues. Note that quality updates do not contain new features.

In this quality update for the Generally Available release of Power Query (OK to use in production scenarios), we’ve made the following quality fixes:

  • Improved error in the case where a query is trying to connect to a non-existent file.
  • Implemented more robust protection against out of memory issues when loading data into the workbook.
  • Improved experience for disabling online search in restricted markets.
  • A few other non-user facing bugs were fixed too.
