# Use Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) as a data source in Excel

Before you can use CDF as a data source in Excel, an Azure Active Directory (AD) administrator need to register and consent for your organization to use the Microsoft Power Query for Excel application and allow Excel to impersonate and act on behalf of a user to retrieve data from a CDF project.

When the Azure AD administrator has registered the Microsoft Power Query for Excel application, users can sign in to Excel with their organizational ID and retrieve data from a CDF project.
