When I open up my excel file it has so many formulas that it takes about 1 minute to calcuate. Is thier a way to insert a progress bar so that the user knows something is happening and doesn't start getting nervous?

Thanks

When did Power Query debut in Excel?
Although it was an add-in in Excel 2010 & Excel 2013, Power Query became a part of Excel in 2016, in Data, Get & Transform Data.

I've seen the progress bar you refer to...it sometimes appears at the bottom of my workbook. It may be that your status bar is not displayed. I believe that's where the progress bar lights up. To test, click on View dropdown menu, then place a check (by clicking there) on Status Bar line.
Then close/reopen and see if the progress bar appears. I know this is not an answer, but it may get "the ball" rolling for you... /s/ Larry.
