  2. Update Visual Basic for Applications

    Visual Basic for Applications is still version 7.1 from 2012. It's high time that power user portion of the application received updates to the interface, IntelliSense, and features. That portion of the program needs to be aligned with the current features now available within the Microsoft Suite. It also needs a facelift to the Userforms palette. I suggest starting with Excel, where VBA is most widely used, then PowerPoint, Word, Outlook.

    Don't go destroying developer's programs, just add interoperability, functions, and facelift.

  4. Add a persistent unique "eternal" ID for each sheet as an alternative to name and index.

    It would be extremely useful to me, and perhaps other developers, to have a unique read-only ID for each sheet that would *never* change. It would be assigned internally by Excel at the time the sheet was created. The idea would be for it to function as an auto-incrementing identity column does for a row in a database.

    Why would this be useful? If you store sheet names anywhere in the workbook--such as in range or table--for use in VBA code *and* you allow the user to rename worksheets, your code will break as soon as the user renames a…

  5. VBA Developer should highlight paired parentheses

    While editing VBA code within the Developer window, there should be some basic syntax highlighting such as paired parentheses. This would help while coding complex nested conditions.

  6. 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.

  7. VBA doesn't check the maximum text line length when importing a module

    VBA doesn't check the maximum length of every text line when importing a module (.bas file). This can cause an issue when saving the VBA project inside VBA when the text line of the .bas file is higher then allowed, which can lead at the end to a full crash of Excel. This is a major issue.

  9. Create a command line tool for signing Office files with a digital certificate

    Besides Office, Excel files can be created using numerous software tools. More often than not, batches of macro-enabled Excel files are processed with scripts for productivity purposes. However, VBA code signing cannot be part of an automated process, as it is a manual task that requires opening & saving the file in Excel.

    This request is about creating a command line tool for signing Office files with a digital certificate, similar to MS SignTool.

    In addition, the existing macro signing process in Office is not 100% compatible with Open XML specifications. I can clarify this statement in a private discussion…

  14. Add volatile functions to Inquire Workbook Analysis

    Please add to the Workbook Analysis a report on any volatile functions found in the workbook and their cell locations. It would be very helpful when trying to debug and re-factor slow and complex workbooks.

  16. Make more efficient object collections and cell format operations in VBA

    VBA Excel user objects are so slow, that i have to mimic it with my own procedures managing user data types, and it speeds up a process by times! Fix it somewhen, please!
    Similar situation with cell formatting. Why it's so slow? And more of it - I just can't copy/paste the pattern of different formatting on several cells at once? and some time ago had to spend a lot of tyme to resolve this problem with optimization tricks in VBA/

  17. VBA histogram bin

    Please make the number of bins and bin width for histograms open to VBA. I can read the values, but I can't change them. I want to create a macro that allows me to use a spinner so I can adjust the number of bins or the bin width.

    I am working with statistics and need to be able to quickly adjust these numbers for students.

  19. Disabeling Calculate; norma, page layout & page break Preview on task bar at the bottom.

    I suggest Disabling Calculate; normal, page layout & page break Preview on task bar at the bottom. Allow the user to make any of the options, their default view, but only for the active workbook.

  20. Analysis ToolPak's Regression tool should not use the clipboard

    After you run the Analysis ToolPak's Regression tool, you can paste some of the numbers that appear in the output. There is no warning that the Analysis ToolPak will use/clear the clipboard. Users may have had important stuff on the clipboard. It is also bad practice to use the clipboard as part of a macro. Please change the Regression tool so that it does not use the clipboard.
