  1. Fx this find & replace for: find * (star) replace with - (hyphen)

    Please fix this find & replace combination:
    find * (star) replace with - (hyphen)

    When I run this combo, the end result in a cell is just one hyphen or dash (also in desktop version).

    The only way I can perform the above find-replace quickly is by copying all the cells to InDesign, which I use all the time for layout things, and using its find & replace function, then I need to copy all cells back to Excel.

    Thanks!

  5. unlock sheets

    It's very important and necessary to be able to "unlock" sheet in the site of Excel 365 in line, because the lack of this option make the user the mandatory the necessity of have Excel.app installed in the hardware, so because of this the fully potential of the "on line" services are not so functional and not allowd us to become in a "fully movil collaborator" to our companyes

    Hello everyone,
    Thanks for submitting this idea and voting for it.
    We need more information for better understanding of this request.
    Sheet tabs should not “jump around”, unless someone is reordering them.
    Is it a bug or a feature request? Is it still relevant?
    Any additional information will help us prioritize and handle this issue.

    Thanks,
    Itai from Microsoft

  7. Disable Excel Protected-View for files in specific website

    Hi,

    I work with a website who produce a lot of Excel files.

    Thanks in advanced,

  8. hyperlink on single words like google sheets, formatting, and hyperlink interface file directory with link


    1. URL can be linked to single words in google sheets, thus allowing to click the cell without navigation, or better looking format.


    2. conditional formatting if it cell contains hyperlink, to prevent other conditional formatting from undoing the normal hyperlink formatting


    3. the hyperlink interface that can look at files like in the desktop. But use the URL link instead of file Path link. So folder can move and not break linking and open correctly from all interfaces (instead of thinking its a download if done wrong)

  10. Money in Excel: Import historical transactions

    Money in Excel: It appears that you only import a couple months of historical transactions. I would like a way to request you pull more transactions, or the ability to load historical transactions from a CSV or Excel file.

  11. have a history button for excel spread sheets created and edited

    have a button to click to see the history of excel spread sheets previously created before they were edited and or deleted. For example, if an excel spread sheet was created then edited once or several times, have a history button that would let you view history edited excel spread sheets by number history records stored.

  12. True Dark Mode

    True Dark Mode option within Excel for the web.
    True = the main part of the spreadsheet with the cells, rows, columns would be dark, not just the menus.
    Actually a single option to enable Dark Mode for all 365 apps would be amazing!
    Over to you Microsoft :)

  14. 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…

  15. Assign Outlook contact from data validation

    Be able to mention a contact directly in the sheet instead of in a comment, so you can list them in data validation and assign tasks from your Excel sheet without having to create a comment each time.

  16. Protect Range/Sheet, Collaboration Range/Sheet, Tracking history of workbook

    There are several functions that don't work the same in the online version vs desktop. Besides that, in comparison, Microsoft Excel Online doesn't have advanced features in the Google Sheets. Below are a few that are particularly frustrating to me so far:

    ~ Protecting features only works in desktop version (not work online)

    ~ Microsoft Excel Only cannot protect sheets, but Google Sheets can protect sheets or ranges. Therefore, many users can collaborate together with high security in range/ranges, same sheet/sheets in a common workbook.

    ~ and so many advanced other feature in Google Sheets doesn't appear in Microsoft Excel

  17. Pivot Forms as a new function Excel-Online as well as on the desktop version

    Since MS Access is now being degraded it seems to me a compact and basic program like Excel should have a function where you can easily create "forms" (as in datafields) based on a Excel-table.

    Why not create a function that works in the same way as pivot tables or pivot charts, but then as a pivot form. Where one record from a table is being displayed in data fields based upon the column of the table record.

    And off course that you can easily change, add and delete records in and from the excel table through this Power Form.
