  1. 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.

  2. Provide Within parameter for Range.Replace method

    VBA Range.Replace method applies the current Within (Workbook) setting of the Find/Replace dialog box even though an explicit range of workbook.sheet.cells is provided to the method. The desire is to replace only within the scoped range, not across all sheets of a workbook. Although the VBA can be coded to first execute a benign Range.Find instruction which "magically, without the option to indicate" resets the Within property value to Sheet, the responsibility of having to do so should not be necessary. The Range.Replace method should provide for a Within parameter and stick to the range of Sheet or Workbook according…

  3. Allow form focus to break out of cell editing

    If you have a VBA modeless form up and you double click on a cell to start editing, the form is "dead" until the user gets out of the editing mode. It should exit the edit mode just like clicking on a different cell would. Users keep reporting this as a bug in macro code.

  4. Support Office themes in VBA editor

    Also, add an option to make the theme match the current theme of the Office so that if we change the Office theme to Black the VBA theme will change automatically to match this theme.

  6. How to disable interaction between Excel instances? VBA runs slower as instances increase. Not like that two days ago. what updated?

    Like to see an option to completely isolate each Excel instances for speed, so my 8-core computer can use all the cores. Now 8 instances only run 30% (3.9% /instance). Shame.

  8. Fix Excel so XNumbers works

    XNumbers (v6) was a marvelous advanced mathematics add-in for earlier versions of Excel (before 2013). In Excel 2013, it caused Excel to open up empty worksheets, until an update fixed the problem. In Excel 2016, the empty worksheet symptom reappeared, until some further update "fixed" it so it no longer works at all! Why? The error message is unintelligible!

  10. ERROR in VBA "Select Case" documentation.

    The documentation for the "Select Case" statement is not current.

    There is a reference in it to using "Like" or "Is" as part of the "Case" statement.

    It does NOT work in VBA now. Apparently these tow words have been deleted and the compiler now figures it out itself.

    But what a problem when I tried to use it and just got a compile error which specified some rules having to do with logical statements but nothing suggesting that "Is" or "Like" are not compiled now.

    What a wast of peoples time to read the documentation and then find that…

  11. Save worksheet as pdf macro

    So I just had a long chat (more than 2 hours) with the Microsoft contact support desk and I even shared my screen with them. It was about creating a button in Excel so when i click on it, it saves the worksheet as a .pdf file. Well, the contact person tried everything, every possible code she knew, and it did not work.....HINT: Make it easier for non-coders! Also for other macro functions, like wiping out data without clearing the formula
