  7. Read only / Check Out

    When I try to edit spreadsheets, sometimes a different user has it checkout so it is in readonly mode. When I inform them they have it checked out, they have no idea where it is open.

    Could you add a feature that can allows me to message them to close out of their file, and in the message the user receives, it has a button to checkin or kill a checkout session?

  9. Fix Grammatical Errors in "Couldn't Open the Workbook"

    Please fix the grammatical errors in the following message.

    "We're sorry, we couldn't open your workbook... Do you want to try and open this file in Excel?"

    The first sentence is a "comma splice." It should be "We're sorry. We couldn't open your workbook."

    The last sentence has "try and," which is a common mistake. The sentence should read "Do you want to try to open this file in Excel?" In other words, instead of using "try and," use "try to."

  10. Unlocking only specific cells from write protected worksheet using excel javascript API is stopped working

    I am using office 365 and Excel online (Build 16.0.9403.1875).

    I am creating Microsoft Excel online Add-ins, using Excel Javascript API.

    I have a requirement like write protection of entire sheet, except few cells (Range).

    The functionality is achieved and it was working fine and recently. it started breaking like, it is completely protecting the sheet.

    I did not get any error too.

    So, I referred Format protection API, but while debugging, the ‘locked’ property is of no effect in action.

    Thanks,
    Raghuvaran

  17. Identify in addition to flagging an error

    I keep getting error while Copy/Paste a record.
    App is stating:The selection contains only part of a merged cell. To copy,make a selection that fully contains the merged cell.
    Since App identified the error, it would be much easier to also identify the merged cell it talks about. I do not see any merged cell in my copy, and this same sheet, works fine on my laptop, using Office 2016.

  18. its somr time not allowing to update the date giving errorUnfortunately, the workbook needs to be closed or checked in before you can edit i

    Unfortunately, the workbook needs to be closed or checked in before you can edit it. If everyone uses Excel Online, you can work on it at the same time.
