Important: Retirement of Facebook data connector notice    Import and refresh data from Facebook in Excel will stop working in April, 2020. You will still be able to use the Facebook Power Query connector until then. But starting in April, 2020, you will be unable to connect to Facebook and you will receive an error message if you try using the Facebook connector. We recommend revising or removing any existing Power Query queries that use the Facebook connector as soon as possible to avoid unexpected results.

Because it’s a subscription-based version, Microsoft 365, at any one time, contains all the available Power Query features. You can think of it as the master set. Professional Plus Standalone (also called perpetual) versions have a large subset of features, but not all of them. For example, fuzzy merge is supported in Microsoft 365, but not in 2019 perpetual. More features were added to 2019 perpetual than were available in 2016 perpetual, and even more will be added to the next perpetual version called 2021. Given this situation, you have two choices. The first choice is to wait for the next upgrade to a perpetual version if you want a specific feature. This choice might work, but truthfully, it may not. We can’t guarantee that a specific feature will be added to the next perpetual version. The second choice is to subscribe to Microsoft 365. We encourage you to make that choice so that all the Power Query features are available to you. For more information, see Microsoft 365 with Office apps.

Power Query is a free add-in that can be downloaded here: Download the Power Query add-in. although the add-in is no longer officially supported, you can still use it. Once enabled, Power Query functionality is available from the Power Query tab on the Excel ribbon.
