A very brief post today about something really cool. I promise I’ll start blogging more frequent again soon, doing some projects that I will talk about in the new year :).
Today a new Microsoft Project has been released called Project Siena “a Windows 8.1 app that lets you easily create your own Windows app. It’s designed as a quick tool for building Windows 8-style apps without any programming skills.” http://www.theverge.com/2013/12/19/5227140/microsoft-project-siena-windows-apps
The cool thing here is that you can create this Windows 8 app with data pointing to an Excel file that contains an Table created by Power Query or a DAX query. So you can bind any data control to a table in Excel..
Pretty awesome isn’t it 🙂

Can this Excel file be posted on SharePoint for Office 365? Will interaction with a Power View be possible thru the app?
Hi Charles, that is not yet possible in OFfice 365.
