  1. Application.DisplayAlerts= False not working consistently specifically in excel files that are saved in sharepoint synched libraries

    As the description says, I have a file that is used kind of as a DB manager, which users insert and delete rows without problem. The thing is that the coded "Application.DisplayAlerts= False" function inside the DB manager, does not work properly for all users, Im actually one of the users which "Save as" pop ups appear when using the file.

    Just to be clear, there are users that use the exact same code in the exact same sharepoint library, and the "Save as" prompt is skipped as expected when using the "Application.DisplayAlerts= False.

  2. [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.

  3. Bridge to Julia scripting

    Since the Julia programming language is in a path to become one of the top leading programming languages in about 5 years by looking at its roadmap, and that among its strenghts are python similarity, concurrency and high level data crunching with ease, it would be great to plan ahead and get Excel to be there on time to interchange capabilities. Even if it is not by considering Julia as another scripting language, and it is more on the side of some visual plug-in API.

  4. Important: VBA "Tools" > "Additional Controls" not showing on Windows 10 64-bit

    When editing UserForms in the VBA Editor I accidentally removed an item from the toolbox (with right-click > Delete item). I should be able to add it again with right-click > Additional Controls or Tools > Additional Controls but nothing happens when I click on them.

    The cursor changes to "busy" for 1 second then goes back to normal but nothing happens next, no window appears and it is impossible to add controls to the toolbar.

    I know this is a feedback site and not a help site, a lot of people have had the same issue and asked for…

  6. Creating macro or repetitive function without writing code in VBA.

    We need to be able to write repetitive Excel tasks through simple functions or formulae so that whenever we need to re-perform that task we can just use the same function to process the same.

  8. Remove duplicate transactions in Money in Excel

    Money in Excel is duplicating some, but not all, of my transactions from my credit card company. Every field is the same in both Excel rows, but there is only a single entry at my credit card company. There doesn't seem to be a reason why some are duped and some aren't.

    Since the de-dupe function is disabled, I'm not able to clean the data the way you normally would, so my accounts are way off.

  10. Replace new "Workbook statistic" function with Inquire

    Hello,

    Workbook statistics functions was introduced recently in Version 2002 (Build 12527.20194).

    So far it's just plain crazy simple window with useless information.

    You show me i've 10 tables in my workbook? Cool, mind to show me all of them with names and references?

    What do i've to do with those plain numbers?

    There's already insanely useful add-in called "Inquire" where info from "Workbook statistic" and much much more is available already.

    Please just make Inquire available for all excel desktop users!

  11. Please get the Excel VBA cpontext sensitive help back to work!!

    I don't really care, if it's offline or online help as long as it's fast and reliable, but currently pressing F1 in VBA shows only the MS documents content list (https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/).
    For 20 years the context help with F1 was really fast, informative and helpful. Now its just scrap. BTW: Germany is an online underdeveloped country!! Remember: we Germans need OFFLINE HELP. (I still have a 1 Mbit connection!)

  12. Intellisense support for Range.Formula2, HasSpill, etc. properties

    The new Range.Formula2, HasSpill, SpillParent, and related properties introduced recently to Excel do not have Intellisense support in Visual Studio. As VSTO is still the best platform to build advanced-capability add-ins for Excel, exposing these properties via Intellisense is very desirable.

  14. Add options to the Excel "stock" function

    In order to make the Excel "stock" function far more useful, consider adding the following functions:
    1. Dividend TTM (trailing 12 months)
    2. Ex-dividend date.
    3. Next quarterly report date.

    These are a simple lookup in either the NASDAQ site or the Yahoo Finance site.

  15. 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. Ignore cell style while using .find in VBA and the xlWhole parameter

    When a macro fills a cell with a text and later needs to go back to that cell the .find method and the xlWhole parameter should do the job. However it fails when the cell style is not standard. That behavior is very odd. Please ignore the cell style when searching whole texts. xlPart works fine, but often you simply need exactly the whole cell text.

  19. Range.Find should use cell values, as opposed to the displayed text.

    The following equation fails if you change the column width. See attached pictures.

    colNum = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("E5:DA5").Find(-10).Column

    It should be finding that cell H5 has a value of -10.
