  1. Python integration

    It would be nice if we could use Python for writing macros rather than VBA. (I realize that it's possible to automate Excel externally using Python and the COM interface, but this is slow.)

  2. Option to allow add-ins in restricted workbook (IRM)

    The new Information Rights Management (IRM) is great to protect workbooks from being opened or edited by non authorized users.
    Unfortunately it also deactivates all ad-ins. In principle this makes sense as add-ins can access and modify information within the workbook. However, current restrictions go a bit too far as even as an owner/author of the workbook with FULL CONTROL my add-ins are deactivated. Should I not have full rights to do anything with the workbook? In our company thousands of users across EMEA use a self developed add-in to calculate service costs. Now they cannot use IRM as it…

  3. New version of the VBA Editor

    Excel is subject to so many great updates with new features, but it seems, that the VBE remained the same since first introduced. Can you please upgrade the VBE to a state of the art editor similar to Visual Studio or other programming editors? Excel Makros are a great feature, used in so many workbooks, but the editor looks and feels like from the 90ies;)

  6. office scripts

    Hi Team,

    I would like to suggest making the scripting functionality available to the Microsoft 365 Family Subscription. I would love to be able to automate Excel tasks in a more modern built-in scripting environment. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

  9. Date Picker Add-In

    This is an old request for the date picker since Microsoft removed the feature. I have copied an admin response and request for votes starting from 2016.
    How is it possible after 5 years there has not been any advancement on this?

    With the amount of people that utilize Excel, you are not supporting your customer's needs.
    Please get your coders to rectify this as soon as possible. This delay is not acceptable by any means.

    Add 'date picker' to enable users to select a date from a mini calendar into cells

  12. PLEASE.....Add TTS Turbo Macro to the Microsoft Office Add-in Store

    Training the Street, Inc. (TTS) is a prominent Wall Street financial modeling company that trains the majority of Wall Street/finance firms in the United States. TTS has developed an Excel Add-in that thousands of professionals use to enhance their Excel modeling speed. But since Office 365 has started churning out rapid updates, the Add-in has become unreliable and TTS has stated they no longer are making the updates necessary to counter Microsoft's changes. https://trainingthestreet.com/macros/

    Is there a way your Dev team could look at this simple Excel Add-in and find a way to add it to the Microsoft Office Add-in…

  13. Spreadsheet Compare to build workbooks with interim steps

    The Spreadsheet Compare tool/add-in should show the user the list of changes between workbook 'A' and 'B' (functionality exists) and then allow the user the ability to group changes together (new functionality). It should then generate as set of workbooks that move from 'A' and add make the changes of each change-group. The changes would be cumulative so the final workbook produced would match 'B'.

    The user should then be able to select a cell in the workbook 'B' and the tool should read from the set of workbooks (as created in the previous paragraph) to show how the value…

  14. Add Office Scripts to the native Excel Application

    I understand getting full blown VBA working on the web is extremely unlikely (impossible?).

    So - make Office Scripts run on native Excel (and other Office apps). That way we get

    1) One common development language across all Microsoft Office applications

    2) Support for Javascript/Typescript in native Office.

    Thank you for sending Microsoft feedback. Your input is valuable to us and helps improve our products.

    Office native platforms already supports JavaScript/TypeScript for the add-in (extensions) model. The built-in Office Scripts/automation is not yet supported.

    We do intend to support Office Scripts across other platforms and hosts. However, the priority and schedules for such expansion in coverage is not yet finalized. We are right now focussed on delivering it for Online platform with Power Automation support. Please stay tuned for future announcements to learn about the coverage.

    Thanks,
    Sudhi

  18. Checkboxes are mistakenly activated by arrow keys

    Dear Excel-Team,

    Unfortunately, I don't have the Feedback-button, therefore I would like to post a bug here. Thanks for your understanding.

    in Version 2104, checkboxes within a UserForm are activated when approached by arrow keys (w/o mouse click or space bar). When for example a user navigates from one textbox to another using the arrow keys, all checkboxes in between will be activated. The checkboxes remain activated when approached again by arrow keys.

    This behavior doesn't seem to be intended as it was different in earlier Excel versions.

    Please see also the Microsoft Community Post, there is also a link…

  19. I have a reproduceable bug in XLTMs.

    Crossposting from here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/i-have-a-reproduceable-bug-in-excel/c1f18efd-2f7c-494b-84df-b81fac32bb21 , where a moderator discovered that it's happening when the first part of a filename is also a cell address, like A1 - XFD9999 or the like.


    Make a new workbook, add a new module to it in the developer IDE.

    Put this code in the module. The function just makes a button on the first tab. That button, when pressed, will pop up a messagebox saying "Hello World". (.....sorry, pasting in here blew up my indentation and I can't seem to fix it!)
