  1. generic sheets from all office products in a single container to handle projects.

    Would be nice to have the possibility to open sheets about any of the office products and not to be restricted to the excel ones. Actually I can open more "tabs" but I wanna have a ms word's sheet in the excel file. Ideal would be to have a generic container of sheets coming from the various office products.

  2. Update the wording on Paste Specials option for the new terminology of 'Comments' being a 'note' no longer a 'comment

    In the Paste Specials box, suggest to update the wording on the 'Comments' option for the new terminology of 'Comments' being a 'note'. Or have both options.

  3. Trash the program. It is worthless. I'm going to try to get my money back because this was a total waste.

    Trash this . I just bought it. Excel won't even open. Says the file may be corrupted. Well, it wasn't me that corrupted it because I never got it to open. Not sure if the version of Word works or not. I don't care. I'm taking my new laptop back to the store where I bought it. If they won't give me my money back for this piece of they sold me, they can have their laptop back too. I can buy a laptop anywhere but I well NEVER buy this **** again. And why do you ask for our…

  4. Mirroring all the features and function from on-premise MS Excel to Excel online

    I decide to name an array of data on cloud-based Excel but in vain.
    However, I can do it on google sheets which is your competitor.

  6. larger number support

    Excel is still stuck in the 1990's as far as number support. Numbers greater than 15 digits lose subsequent digits. DEC2HEX, HEX2DEC and the whole family of related functions can't handle larger values (over ~5bytes). I find that I have to use Windows Calculator to do these more complex values -- it's hard when the free calculator has greater range than what should be a premiere calculation tool.

  7. Flash Fill wants an example submitted, but does not allow you to enter anything! Iwant to fill a series of dates.

    explain how to function with the stuff you put out. You have really screwed things up! I need to put together a file and send it to my doctor. I am unable to do so now.
    My IDEA is to re-think this whole thing! PS: Your "terms of service" are not for the user, they are to protect you rear end.

  8. Fix the Regional Settings mess

    A lot of people are having issues with Excel Online regional settings, whether it comes to dates or formulas language.
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/how-to-set-excel-online-regional-settings/76c7a892-7d00-4969-9561-7455a5e1307a

    (just a few examples)

    Changing the locale of a spreadsheet shouldn't be something so complex that we need to post for help on a forum (to eventually get no answer anyway).

    In Google Sheets it goes like Files > Spreadsheet Settings > Language, and that's how simple, straightforward, intuitive and clear it should be. No settings that comes from other settings in another part of the maze of apps from Office 365.

  12. Setting to Block Excel Online

    I have some complex excel files with Macros and references to other spreadsheets.

    They are stored in a Sharepoint portal which exposes them to Excel online.

    As soon as somebody opens them in online it breaks the external spreadsheet links and breaks some macros functions.

    And since the macro doesn't work in Online would be great to have a slider, Block from Excel online. It would start to load online then see this flag make no changes and force local excel to open and download.

  15. Feedback

    Hi - I'm a computer science and information systems major. I work at Ferguson who is a heavy user of your 360, sharepoint and other services. We've recently been going to cloud based storage and I've noticed that everything now opens in the web. Most users would much rather open in the App, rather than the web. It would be nice if there was a way to ALWAYS OPEN IN DESKTOP APP vs having to hit that button everytime

  16. It would be nice if one could Duplicate sheets with graphics within a workbook

    In the installed version of Excel it is very easy to Duplicate a Sheet with graphics in a Workbook, but in the online version it displays an error message, namely: "This version of Microsoft Excel can't duplicate worksheets with: Charts"

  19. List of All Tabs on WorkBook

    Can you guys have a list of all tabs per workbook in the lower right-hand corner, (as in Google Sheets), where you select the tab that you want to work on by scrolling to it vertically instead of manually from left to right by clicking the left and right arrows. For use in workbooks where there is more than one sheet.
