Use data from Common Data Service database in excel

I would like to make a connection to a database I created in Common Data Service so I can use the data in an excel sheet.

 

Notice I don't want to administrate the database (create, delete or modify the data..), I just want to read the data and auto fill some cells with the data from the database

 

Is there a way to to this?

Re: Use data from Common Data Service database in excel

I think there is a way to do this using  "Microsoft Powerapps office Add-in", I've been able to download the complement and stablish a connection with my account in office 365, but think I still can't access the data in Excel, (though I'm loggesd as administrator):

Hi @cholopa

As far as I know CDS has not yet been exposed to Excel's Power Query.  This would be the natural way to use the CDS data in Excel.  I think there already is an idea on this that you can vote up.

Hi:

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I sort it out, it can be done, you just need to add the appropiate table in the design mode and select the table to want to access.
