  4. Function Library (book icons) in the Formulas Tab

    Basic and intermediate users may be happy to see all the book icons in the Formulas Tab (Function Library group) as we have in the desktop version, to help them to find which functions can be used. Even the mobile version has the categories there... This would be welcome on the online version too.

  5. Linking of excel sheets in multiple files using formulas in sharepoint.

    Working in single file is a basic thing. However linking of multiple excel files through formulas are not present in sharepoint. For example VLOOKUP(), SUMIF(), MATCH() e.t.c.

  11. Add Query (See Google Sheets for functionality)

    Query is a lot easier to use when performing aggregations than VBA.

    =Query({Shee1t!B2:E}, Select Col1, Col2, Sum(Col4)/1048576 Group By Col1, Col2 Where Col2 IS NOT NULL Label Col1 'Cluster', Col2 'Index', Sum(Col4)/1048576 'Size (MB)'
    -> Would take data from Sheet1, cell range B2 upper left to last row of E), and for each combination of values from Col1 (matching the first column in the original cell range, which is column B ) and Col2 (column C) sum the corresponding values from Col4 (column E).

  12. Sharing, Protecting, cross sheet functions

    It will be good if we have functions like Importrange and Query functions.
    Sharing , protecting the cells, is not as good as google sheets.
    Cell based editor history,
    Macros, like
    all those things which are available in google sheets.

  18. Expand The NLP "Ideas Function" To Create, Manipulate And Delete Data, Not Just Summarise And Visualize Data

    Today, under Excel Ideas, you can enter in a question about your data using NLP (writing plain English without formulas). However, there is no way to use Ideas to create, manipulate or delete data. For instance, I know I'd like to pivot and condense a complex dataset, but I do not know how to formalize this using formulas.

  20. Libre Office has a function fairy, complex functions and equations are much more editable

    there would be no need for macro solutions if the calculation formula could be embedded in a car filter function on the worksheet. Only the car-filtered results would be subject to the calculation of the specified function and the relevant one.
    Although there is a SUBTOTAL function, only a few functions are capable of doing so.
    Függvénykód
    (also hidden values) Function code
    (omit hidden values) Function
    1 101 AVERAGE
    2 102 WORKS
    3 103 WORKS2
    4 104 MAX
    5 105 MIN
    9 109 SUM
