      • Please allow macros within Excel online 'Edit in browser' mode

        You should be able to run macros while editing in your browser for an Excel Online Sharepoint/OneDrive document. Currently, you can only do this if you select 'Edit in Excel'

        • Hi, if you could make all the functionality of Excel (eg macros) work on the online version, that would be awesome. Thanks

          As above. Hi, if you could make all the functionality of Excel (eg macros) work on the online version, that would be awesome. We all work as a team online on these spreadsheets and the fact that only one person can have it on their office computer seems a little outdated to me. You're clever people, looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Nothings free in life, happy to pay my way, just need the product to exist. Thanks :)

                • Macros & Scripting Creation from Excel Online

                  Macros/scripting are essential to help users perform automated tasks. Currently, you cannot create, edit or view the macros inside a workbook on Excel Online.

                  Google Sheets 'Script Editor' has been available for years, and it is one of the features that makes Google Sheets superior.

                  • Enable macros in online version

                    Basically Excel online doesn't allow for any coding or Macros whereas google sheets does and I was wondering if this is in the pipeline for Microsoft's development team?

                    I would like to have a floating text box along side my spreadsheet so when I scroll down I have my frozen panes at the top and a floating text box to the right of my timeline.

                    The file attached is the file I want to use and if you run the macro it brings up the window that is displayed in the Capture.PNG.

                    If you can think of viable alternatives that…

                    • Macro buttons, pretty please!

                      Excel Online is almost there... it even shows slicers which is fantastic!... but not custom buttons with macros enabled. That's the last step we'd need to make robust excel dashboards available for viewing across all platforms. So close, when do we get the cigar? ;)

                      • Macros and web queries

                        It would be great if excel online could include macros and web queries, the 2 items that really make excel stand out.

                        • Add developer tab including VBA

                          Enable a developer tab so that users can add macros and edit the VBA behind them. JavaScript would be nice to be able to use as well.

                                      • what happened to Excel.officeUI? I've heavily customized the QAT with buttons tied to macros in one of my startup files.

                                        Allow a QAT, and a locally stored Excel.officeUI file as well as a startup file that includes VBA to which custom buttons can be assigned.

                                        • Would be so nice to password lock cells in outlook excel(share point).

                                          It would be awesome to be able to lock individual cells in share point excel. I share a spreadsheet with 10 people, there is always that one person who accidental modify s some one else cells.
