Working with Excel in Power BI Service

There are many ways in which you can get Excel and your reports to interact!  Here's what this blog covers:

Topic Notes
Analysing data in Excel How to create a pivot table in Excel, based on a report's dataset.
Importing from Excel How to import entire Excel workbooks into Power BI Service, or just their underlying data.
Tiling and publishing from Excel How to publish entire workbooks directly from Excel, or alternatively how to tile individual parts of a workbook.

I'll start with the feature I like least: Analyze in Excel.
