  1. 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…

    Money in Excel team here! Currently, this is the most upvoted request—we hear you! This is something we are actively working on since launching last month. We do not have an exact ETA yet. Just know that we are working on it along with many other features. One thing we can do, is circle back and let this thread know once it’s released. Keep giving us feedback, we appreciate all of it. Be safe!

  3. Money in Excel - Import Transactions

    In Money in Excel, it would be nice to have the option to import transactions. I have transactions I would like to include in my spreadsheet, but they aren't able to be imported via Plaid.

  4. Allow for more categories in Money in Excel

    The Categories spreadsheet only allows for the addition of 20 categories. My Quicken account, which I am trying to terminate, has over 70 categories in current use. This limits the usefulness of Money in Excel.

  5. Money in Excel should be available in Microsoft 365 business

    It looks like Money in Excel is only available for Personal and Family Microsoft 365 accounts.
    We have several Microsoft 365 Business accounts that we use for both personal and family business activities, but we cannot access this feature.
    We end up paying more at least for some accounts, but we do it for simplicity of management.
    Microsoft should make Money for Excel to business accounts as well - at least small business accounts.

  9. Improve VBA protection

    it is not a secret that the VBA protection password is very weak, it is very frustrating that I can't defend properly a sensitive code in the one of the biggest and popular software (Excel) in the world.
    improving VBA protection is a game changer for lots of people.

  10. [Userform] Reduzir tamanho do Useform para height 0(ZERO) na janela do VBE, corrompe o formulário/arquivo e gera erro &H8000405(2147467259)

    Quando um Userform é reduzido a Height 0(zero) o projeto é corrompido, gerando erro de sistema &H8000405(2147467259) Erro não especificado | Memória insuficiente | E erro em tempo de Execução 7.

    Acredito ser necessário uma trava na propriedade Height da classe Userform para não aceitar valores Zerados e/ou Height inferiores a 1. Tendo como valor padrão 1, ou corrigindo o VBE para aceitar valor ZERO, que nesse caso, não faz muito sentido.

  15. Code for VBA to return or set the column width in pixels instead of points

    Pixel values vary depending on the monitor used, my issue is if you sum the range of column widths that suit your print area for 1 page example 7 columns in points total points = 89.33 (853 pixels) and try to apply this total width to another column let say 1 column then 89.33 points becomes (811 pixels). I understand why this happens due to how points are calculated, however you can display the pixels when you click on the column in excel im assuming code to retrieve or set by this pixel value wouldn't be too much of an…

  16. Please replace VBA with a modern scripting language

    Please replace the VBA scripting language by something more modern.
    I would like to see a .NET language with editing and debugging capabilities in Visual Studio.

    I think that VBA is no longer a viable option as a scripting language.

  17. Allow access to the "Spreadsheet Inquire" add-in for Excel without having to upgrade an entire suite of applications to a business license.

    I have Microsoft 365 Family and I need the "Spreadsheet Inquire" add-in for Excel to troubleshoot a couple of very complex worksheets. The only way to get it is for me to upgrade my entire suite of Office applications to a business license with no other option to get it. A tool to help maintain and repair an Excel sheet should be included with the product, or AT THE VERY LEAST offered for a reasonable additional price.

  18. Convert all VBA references in twips directly to pixels

    Convert all VBA references to screen measurements to pixels. The twip is an arcane unit that has an actual defined distance. Monitors of the same native resolution come in a wide range of actual sizes.

    Twips are also too granular - I can't actually choose to position a window on a display in fractions of a pixel.

    It's very easy for a coder to find their monitor resolution, and also to think about other standard resolutions. It's a lot harder to first, figure out what the heck a twip is to begin with, and then it is unnecessarily unwieldy to…

  20. Provide a VBA-configurable "Display Name" for worksheets

    It appears the name of worksheets can not be altered in VBA. This is a restrictive when the workbook is locked for users etc.

    This means that worksheet names are fixed and cannot be named in accordance with user data.

    Example:
    Workbook 1: "List of Current Cities"
    Workbook 2-11: <City Name 1-10>

    If there are up to 10 Cities required, the workbooks have to be manually named (for display and for referencing in formula etc).

    When copying the spreadsheet (workbook) for another person say, those city name would have to be changed manually also.

    If a separate "Display Name" were…
