  3. Allow selecting hidden cells between freeze pane boundary and next visible row/column

    We have a large spreadsheet with freeze panes on to keep the top row and A:K columns visible. Each column to the left of K includes a date in row 1. As the dates pass, we hide the column as the data is typically no longer relevant. See attached example.xlsx. As you can imagine, many years of data results in many hidden columns.

    When editing, sometimes we need to unhide the previous week or two. This is no problem in the Excel desktop app. Ctrl-G - goto P:Q - Home tab - Cells - Format - Visibility - Hide &…

  4. Full Functioning

    It is not a full functioning program I can't do my job this way and it is driving me nuts I have to work on the old desktop with windows 7 that keep reminding me that it needs to be updated. It runs so slow it takes me twice as long to do anything.

  7. I can't open a file that is "View Only" in On-Line Excel. Have to copy the file using File Explorer to make a copy of the file.

    We use files saved in SharePoint as "templates" for various things. The templates are set up as "View Only". If you try to save one to your one drive, it gives an error message or if you try to "Open in the desk top application", it gives an error. The only way I have been able to make a copy of a file like this is to use file explorer to copy the file from SharePoint to a different location, then open using the desk top application! Please fix it!

  9. Check the rename option with letter case before giving error message

    There's already a sheet with that name. Try another.

    It should check the sheet name with letter case. when i try to change the letter case from Capital to small it shows error message. It should not show this error message when there is a case change in sheet name

  12. Sorting ignores dash characters

    When sorting (in a data table for example) dashes '-' are ignored. For example:
    v-rno
    v-rsn
    ---v-rst
    v-r-sw
    v-rwe
    v-r-we
    v-rwin

  16. This whole forum is annoying, improve posting ideas

    Start applying some easier way to post improvements. You ask way too many questions. Stop asking me how I like Excel every time I use it out of MS Teams. MS teams at times feels like working with some kind of shady beta version.

  17. Desktop Excel In Offline Not opening properly. What to Do ?

    Hey,

    I was trying to open the app on Desktop mode but it certainly not working. What do i need to do?

    Well, in fact, most office files open as "Offline Copy" - but then I click on the "File Tab", and there's an option to either re-open from the Server copy or re-write the Server Copy.

    Excel does not seem to give me that option.

    This happens when I select a file by double-clicking on it in Explorer or when I try opening throught the File menu.

    It is very frustrating that most of the time I want to…

  19. Prevent removing Allow Filter Option in protected sheets

    I have a protected Excel file on SharePoint with Allow Filter Option. If an of the user press Ctrl+Shift-L the filters get removed automatically and since the file is protected, users are able to reapply the filters again.
