We are now into 2016 and no sign of this yet. I doubt we will ever see this now. I really really hate vapourware announcements at major tech conferences.


Oh yeah, it's now Google I/O 2016 and they have announced something similar for Google Sheets - moar vapourware! Coming in 2nd half of 2016. Yeah right, I will belive it when I see it.




Wait, where is this bi-directionality? How? Why? Do we know anything about Salesforce for Excel yet? #askforce on twitter doesn't know about it, so it will be interesting to see. Hopefully it will overcome the 2000 row limit.
