  2. There is no way to select non-adjacent cells as in normal Excel.

    In order to tot-up figures, it is useful to be able to use Ctrl+click and select different cells. There is no functionality in Excel online to do this currently.

  4. Make it easy to publish spreadsheets on the web

    Excel should easily integrate as a computation engine into a web backend so that spreadsheets can be published. Numerous spreadsheets exist in business that take advantage of Excel's formulae and computations. It would be beneficial to have these available through web interfaces. For example, someone should be able to post values that are entered into cells and then trigger Excel's solver to output a solution that is read from another cell(s) and returned as the result.

  5. Please make LINEST work even when some cells are blank

    Often, I have several sequences of data, of different lengths, that I put into a table. I use LINEST to perform a quadratic regression, but because it refuses to work if blank cells exist, I have to manually adjust the ranges for each column. If LINEST simply ignored any blank cells for its calculations, I could autofill the entire row of LINEST regressions.

  6. Retain clipboard data upon paste, like every other program in existence.

    Normal programs can copy/paste data without the clipboard being cleared, but strangely, Excel is different, inconsistent. Clipboard data should not be cleared upon use (e.g. paste).

  10. Show Saved or not

    It would be more helpful if "saving" or "saved" option show in somewhere in the document to identify whether it is saved or not.In addition if the document saved,it is helpful to show how many minutes ago it has been saved.

  12. Fix the small resolution dialogs, like Text to Columns, Edit Links and more

    Many dialogs are small and haven't changed since the days of 800x600 size displays. The Text to Columns dialog in particular only manages to show 5 lines and 63 columns using just ~450 * 80 pixels. I have a huge monitor. This is completely unnecesary. Other old dialogs can be resized, but still have default windows and column sizes appropriate for latter 1990s monitors.

    Please fix this dialog and any others that are either not capable of resizing, or have inadecuate defaults.

  19. Support UDF(User Defined Function) in Excel Online

    Without supporting UDF (User Defined Function) in Excel online, this service is pretty useless for any professional Excel users or any corporate environments where Excel VBA, Macros, Add-Ins are widely used.
    And, do not forgot, Google Spreadsheet already has it. A lot of people think UDF+Macro are the main advantages Excel Desktop version really has.

  20. Resolve the issue of numbers being truncated

    When entering long numbers in a cell, regardless of the formatting, the number will always be truncated after saving the workbook and closing it. Upon opening it again the cell/s default to 'Scientific' formatting, consequently the original format is lost and renders the data in the cell unusable.

    I have to add a lot of barcodes for products into csv files and upload them to a server, but if I close the file prior to uploading, this truncating issue occurs and causes a big problem with the product's codes and subsequently cause other major issues, such as making product purchases…
