  10. Paste Special was working in Excel on my old iPad but does not work on new iPad I have been using Office 365 on my iPad 4 GEN for several ye

    I have been using Office 365 on my iPad 4 GEN for several years. The paste special on this iPad works giving me four options: Paste, Paste Values, Paste Formats and Paste Formulas.

    This function also works on my Android Samsung Galaxy S6 in the same way.

    I have now installed Office 365 (Excel and Word) on my new 7 GEN iPad. But when I click on Paste Special then nothing happens. There is no other way of copying formats, formulas and values from one cell to another.

    Spent more than an hour with Microsoft Support but no avail. She…

  11. I locked a file. I tired to open it in edit. It tells me I can't as somebody else locked it. I am that somebody else, why cannot edit it?

    If I lock a file I should be the ONLY one able to edit it until it is locked. Instead the system prevents me from editing it, saying the file is locked by somebody else. I am that somebody else who locked the file, I should be allowed to edit it. I should be the ONLY one able to edit it until it's locked, actually.

  12. When something doesn't work and you provide a suggestion for how to fix it also provide a button that just does it.

    Not sure this needs much more explanation.

    Provide a solution that just works.

    Call the button JFDI (Just ******* Do It)

    An explanation of exactly what's wrong and how to fix it is FA use to me. By the time I've closed the error message I've forgotten what it said

    BTW
    I DON'T AGREE TO YOU STORING ANY OF MY INFORMATION FOR ANY PURPOSE WHATSOEVER

  14. Fix Co-Authoring with Desktop App

    Co-authoring with SharePoint Online and Excel desktop applications is a plague for years. This has to be the most common problem that keeps coming back up over and over. For whatever reason Excel files become read-only locked for all users accept for the last person that made an edit with the desktop application.

    Microsoft you need to figure this issue out. Devise a way for the local office cache to resolve itself, or fix autosave, or the other myriad of options which is causing this ongoing conflict to keep happening.

  17. This warning is not helpful

    "To prevent possible loss of data, you cannot shift nonblank cells off of the worksheet. Select another location in which to insert new cells, or delete data from the end of your worksheet."

    Please provide more detail as to how to fix this issue.

  18. once done editing one cannot easily get out of the file. we're still inside with no option to "EXIT"

    people don't see exit and they close the browser but are actually still in the file, locking the file from being deleted. there needs to be a clear "EXIT" sign for people to get out of the file.
