  1. Enable VBA for Excel Online

    Enable VBA for Excel Online. Others have suggested a scripting language like google sheets has (which is javascript). No, keep it VBA.

    • NOW() Function

      If I am the editor of a spreadsheet and limit the iterations of the sheet to 1, I can time stamp a cell based on the adjacent cell input. Unfortunately, the time that is stamped is based on the time in what I assume is Seattle WA while I live in the EST zone. Those that share the file with me do not see EST but rather three hours earlier than that. Can we set a default time zone for this purpose?

      • New Function =SORT(text, ref, [order]) is desperately needed

        Ever growing and enhanced business reporting requirements eagerly seek SORT() function in excel. This function will undoubtedly help excel users and significantly improve reporting effectiveness.

        This function must follow the same logic that is used by SORT option available in tab under DATA and should be applicable for any type of data (numbers, characters or symbols etc.)

        Thanks

              • I want the SPLIT function. Suppose AA $ BBB $ CCCC is entered in cell A1 and you enter the following formula in cell A2: = SPLIT (A1, "$") Y

                I want the SPLIT function.
                Suppose AA $ BBB $ CCCC is entered in cell A1 and you enter the following formula in cell A2:
                = SPLIT (A1, "$")
                You can find AA in cell B2, BBB in cell C2 and CCCC in cell D2.

                      • View Formula on a locked/checked in document without needing to check it out

                        You are currently unable to see formula in the browser without entering edit mode.
                        With version control enabled you must check a document out to enter Edit mode. this is awfully cumbersome when all you want to do is VIEW formula rather than edit the document

                          • mark cells when they are part of a formula (another cell) on the online version please.

                            please paste the same functionality of regular excel. When we create a formula, i need to see which other cells is taking in to account and mark them.

                              • arrays

                                It's probably going too far at this stage to ask for dynamic arrays online, although that would be great, support for CSE array creation is a must asap. Super stuff going on with Windows at the moment but cross-platform compatibility is a nightmare, so anything to help would be much appreciated.

                                    Hi, i have been using Office 365, the issue with Excel online is that its functions and formulas are not working accurately. while i run sum function and selecting cells one and another so it does not select it, rather then select the whole range.

                                    hope to see fixed this issue.

                                    Regards,

                                        • Support for Array Formula Creation

                                          Excel Online MUST support array formula creation, not just viewing for this to be feasible long-term.

                                          Just to be clear, I am talking about anything that requires CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER.

                                          Almost all of my spreadsheets use this functionality. Excel Online is mostly useless to me without this support.
