    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    Hi Forms users,

    Thanks for using Microsoft Forms and providing feedback.

    We just enabled a new feature “Forms for Excel” for all Microsoft Forms customers. When you create Forms for Excel in your OneDrive for Business / modern SharePoint team sites, you will get an Excel workbook at the same time. All the responses data will show up in your Excel workbook in real time.

    You could get more detail from – https://aka.ms/formsforexcel

    Somehow MS managed to break the Forms functionality. I've been showing staff how to use Forms, and one of the key features was that the Excel file *was* being created even when using FORMS to create the form.

    Suddenly, this week, creating a form from within Forms itself does not do this anymore.

    Then I read that the Excel file is only created if the form is created from within OneDrive or Excel Online. SERIOUSLY???

    Any method of creating a form should do that same thing: Create the Excel storage file. Period.

    We need to read this file into PowerBI for reporting and can not be downloading the Excel file every time we need new data in PowerBI.
