    I agree, but it should be a workbook setting, not a default setting.

    I agree with this. When the data is numeric, then sort descending is very useful. When you use categorical data, it should be ascending. There is also an issue when you first set a numeric column (say Month Number of Year) as an axis in a chart. Initially it is set to continuous descending (this is OK), but when you switch it to categorical then the sort order should automatically change to ascending. It makes no sense for the default of a categorical axis to sort descending by default.

    Thanks for your feedback on this issue – while we’d like to enable this, there is currently no timetable around doing so. There is the option as a workaround the create a paginated view as a drillthrough of the visual and have a formatted version you can export to Excel, but understand this isn’t a solution everyone can take advantage of currently.

    well, it would be nice to have a choice. There are valid use cases to download the file with the data (eg version control after online editing). This would be a nice addition however.
