  2. Is there a limit of entries in filter option on the online version?

    In the Excel online version, I noticed that when data exeeds 1000 entries, the filter shows a warning message "NOT ALL ITEMS SHOWING".
    May MS expand this limit

  3. Multiple Filters

    Excel Online is currently only able to filter one column in a table. It would be useful to be able to filter multiple columns when you have a big table and need to sort through data quickly. Please help.

  6. Sorting with merged cells

    When attempting to sort and the error pops up that some of the cells are merged and it cannot sort, it would be super handy to know which cells or cell range contain the merged cells. Would you be able to make that happen? Google sheets can do this, which is where I got the idea.

  9. You must have FILTER as an online option. Google has it. People won't use One Drive for editing docs if you don't

    your online version of excel states

    NOTE: In Excel Online, you can sort only a single column ascending (A to Z) or descending (Z to A); multi-column and custom sorting aren't supported yet

  11. filter issue

    There is inconsistent behavior between filtering on data in the Desktop version of Excel and in the web version of Excel.
    In the situation where the top row of the table is a table header with 2 or more cells merged and the actual table headers on the second row with data in each column the following behavior shows.
    Desktop Version:
    - The top header row is skipped when more than two cells are merged, and filtering starts at the second row where the real headers are. This is the right behavior.
    - When only two cells are merged for…

  12. Add Ability to Linear Fit

    Microsoft moderators were talking about it back in 2017 https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/creating-a-trendline-in-excel-online/6b12c339-02e9-466b-86a0-a64e17754610

    There should be no reason excel online is as limited as it is.

  14. Table Range Update

    After adding new information to a current table from an exported spreadsheet, the new data will no longer sort. You have to open the file in Excel on the desktop and manually change the Table Range even though it is already selected the new data. Once this is done then you are able to sort the new data correctly. Please provide a way to mitigate this little glitch.

  16. Invert selection

    When selecting filtering options, after pressing the down arrow on the right of the column header, a menu comes up with various filtering options and the list of values available in the column.
    Sometimes there are many values I can choose from, so selecting those few I need may take time. Often I want to see the opposite, I mean so far I looked at for those few selected, but now I want to have a look at all others. This requires that I invert the selection: everything that was selected so far should be unselected and everything that was…
