  2. get an external URL for a specific cell in an Excel file

    In Teams have the ability to get an external URL for a specific cell rather than just the entire excel file. Oftentimes we are trying to point staff to a particular sheet within the file and a cell within that sheet rather than just go to the file and then have to find it.

  4. 2029 Rule defeats Windows Regional Defaults (using 2016 for PC)

    Enable copy/paste of two digit years to arrive in Excel in the desired century (20xx vs. 19xx).

    My issue is copy/pasting from another app into Excel where the '2029 Rule' overrides Windows Regional Settings. The rule causes data coming in from another App (e.g., MS Project) to paste as 19xx for any date after 12/31/2029. Though displayed as two digits, the values in the source app stored as four digits. More importantly, regional setting defaults clearly direct the correct interpretation of later two digit dates into the 21st century.

    The easiest workaround is to update the source data to display…

    I want to be able to hide the “Download as ODS” option when using ‘Save as...’ on Excel Online.
    This is to avoid having users accidentally save files in the wrong format.

  15. Default opening at the TOP A1

    Each time you go to a worksheet or file, it does not show you A1, you must start working with the sheet by scrolling to see what should be the default position. Or Remember the last position when it was closed.

  16. Please add support for "More Colors" in both the cell formatting AND Conditional Formatting options

    Being limited to specific pre-defined colors is a pain when I want to do something like color-code each month of the year and there are only around 8 color families to choose from. Being able to set this manually via the cell background formatting option would be nice. In addition, being able to specify conditional formatting that goes beyond the red/yellow/green options would be very helpful. Google sheets can do this and I don't understand why this isn't even an option.

  18. Access to Charles Schwab

    Charles Schwab (not a small company) is one of the institutions you list to link from to Excel Money. Yet, when I attempt to it says it can't because of multi-factor authentication. I phoned Schwab (Schwab Bank is my primary bank; without access, Excel Money is useless to me) and Schwab said you would have to request access. Incidentally, my small credit union accesses my Schwab accounts (brokerage and bank) and regularly updates balances in credit union data automatically. So there must be a way. If my small credit union can do it, I'm sure MS can!
