  3. Provide options to open Excel when it cannot be opened on Browser

    If an excel file cannot be opened for various reason on the browser, an option should be given to the user to open it on the desktop/client.

    E.g. I am getting an error "The requested range does not exist in the sheet"

  4. "Your session has exceeded its limits and has been closed" is unclear language, articulate what "the limit" is and how it's exceded

    "Your session has exceeded its limits and has been closed"

    Error Id: d5beba95-ab91-4d03-b643-f81fb062e0c8, 2018-06-13 15:57:51Z

    This error message don't clearly articulate what the user did wrong or how to avoid doing it again. A more detailed message, or one that uses clear language to define what "exceeded its limits" even means, would provide users with a way to avoid getting this error, over and over, as I have.

  8. Error when inserting rows or columns

    Inserting rows and columns works normally (normally...), but whenever inserting a row/column would affect more than one table, Excel returns "This operation is not allowed. The operation is attempting to shift cells in a table on your worksheet."

    To this I initially responded "Duh? I do that all the time, why doesn't it work now?" Normally it would just insert a new row/column, and shift the rest of the table over, but in this case it's complaining because it has to shift the contents of more than one table at a time.

    I don't really mind the mild inconvenience of…

  9. When scrolling down one line in Web Browser, Excel randomly scrolls 800-1000 rows down

    Example: When I'm on row 5, and need to scroll to row 6 or 7, the sheet will suddenly be on row 800 to 1000. I've tried using the arrows on the keyboard, clicking and dragging the side scroll (on the browser), and the scroll on my mouse. The most recent change I've made is added the top row Freeze Pane.

  10. filter problem in protected sheet

    When the sheet is protected, it allows you to remove the filters but it does not allow you to put the filters back or undo the filter removal. If it is a protected sheet, it shall not allow the reviewer even remove the set filter.

  18. Format dates consistently

    You can stop Excel INCONSISTENTLY formatting some dates as numbers, some in US format and some in UK format - even within the same column! It makes Excel UTTERLY USELESS, which is why I saved in Open Office format - which Excel online now can't open.

  20. Please activate Conditional formatting, freezing view like Google offers. The online file gets corrupted often resulting in multiple upload

    Please activate Conditional formatting, freezing view like Google offers. The online file gets corrupted often resulting in multiple upload. Franchise/ service support should be made available.
