  5. Incorrect formula for standardized residual in the regression data analysis tool

    Currently, the standardized residual in the regression data analysis tool is calculated as the residual divided by the standard deviation of the residuals.
    This is incorrect.
    Notwithstanding the fact that the correct standardized residual should account for leverage (this is actually called a studentized residual in some schools of thought), you should at least modify the formula for standardized residual so that it divides the residual by the standard error of the estimate, which is also called RMSE, instead.
    The difference is that the standard deviation of the residuals is calculated as:
    SQRT(SSE/n-1)
    Whereas, the standard error of the estimate…

  7. Encoding of a string value

    My problem is: I am getting Hungarian text from a textbox of a userform. If the text has some special Hungarian characters, like á, é, Ő, Ű, etc and I print out this string, I can not use it with another program, which expects encoding UTF-8
    Can I somehow change the encoding of a string value in a VBA macro?
    (I am using Office 365 on Windows 7 and Windows 10 operating system)

  9. AutoFit columns in the output sheet of the Analysis ToolPak's Regression tool

    Currently, many cells in the output sheet of the Analysis ToolPak's Regression tool are cut off by default because the columns are left at their default width. Please AutoFit the columns as part of the generation of the output. Also, select cell A1 by default so that the output sheet looks cleaner.

  10. Behavior of active cell during macro recording and macro execution are different especially when I use End(xlup etc.).

    Active cell wont move when manually select a range using control-shift-xlup or other cursor keys. For example when we select a range from down-right corner to the top-left corner using control-shift-xlup and control-shift-xlleft, active cell is still at the down-right corner. While active cell seems to move to the top-left corner when we execute the same key sequences during a macro.
    Thus it is difficult to reproduce the same behavior by using "Record macro".

  11. Suppress Autoopen Macro by holding Shift Key

    Legacy versions of Excel (i.e. those prior to Office 365) enabled you to suppress Autoopen macros from deploying by holding the SHIFT key when opening the corresponding Excel workbooks. This functionality appears to have been lost in Office 365, as holding SHIFT when opening an .xlsm file does not stop the Autoopen macro from running.

    Please can you reinstate this, as its absence feels more like an error or omission than anything else. Thank you ! :)

  15. Reference Comments (NKA Notes) in VBA by name rather than index

    Currently you can only reference comments in vba by their index number, if you know them. There is no known way to determine the comment index number by vba but maybe through a for-next loop searching the text for a known piece. It is possible to name a comment(shape). Since comments do not always get created by the same order or are in the same place, inserting data above or to left e.g., allow the comment to be selected/manipulated by it's shape name.

  16. 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.

  17. I want you to have an add-in for the Office 365 Excel-enabled Zip Code Conversion Wizard.

    Previously Excel Add-ins: You could use the Zip Code Conversion Wizard to bulk convert, but Office 365 Excel is out of system requirements and want a compatible add-in.

    以前は Excel アドイン: 郵便番号変換ウィザードを利用して一括変換することが可能だったが、Office 365 Excel はシステム要件外のため、対応したアドインを用意してほしい。

  19. Make Personal Macro Workbook sync across O365 when logged in as same user

    When a user creates a macro in their Personal Macro Workbook, in the Office 365 Desktop version, make this available to them on any machine where they are using the Office 365 Desktop version of Excel.

    The simplest way to achieve this would probably be to simply store the Personal Macro Workbook in a hidden folder in their OneDrive Sync folder so the existing OneDrive Sync will keep all machines in sync.

  20. Add an Automatic Open, Refresh, Save and close feature instead of having to go through batch files and power shell

    Add an Automatic Open, Refresh, Save and close feature instead of having to go through batch files and power shell

    It could be a Automation button that Schedules a Refresh of all the Data and Macros in an excel sheet then closes it
