  1. Make sum and average total display at the bottom clickable

    As it said in the title - by clicking on that area (on screenshot) those values will be copied to your clipboard and you will be able to paste them in different cell.

  3. A Better Spell Checking in Excel

    🇺🇸 A good spell checker is important in any software. In Microsoft Word, it's a classic. In the modern web browsers, the dictionaries are there to help us write better as we type.

    Excel should have the same ability to highlight our errors, as shown in the image:


    🇧🇷 Um bom verificador ortográfico é importante em qualquer software. No Microsoft Word, é um clássico. Nos navegadores da web modernos, os dicionários estão lá para nos ajudar a escrever melhor à medida que digitamos.

    O Excel deveria ter a mesma capacidade de destacar nossos erros, como mostrado na imagem:

  4. formula bar position

    With the advent of more programming type formulas (LET/LAMBDA etc), I would love to be able to resize and reposition the formula bar to the left or right hand side as a pane. Often times I need to scroll up and down a formula to see the impact of a formula change on a range of cells. A portrait orientation pane would solve that.

    Possibly a floating thing would work. Actually yeah, a floating undocked formula pane would be sweet. Do that.

  5. There is No direct command for clearing the Data Validation on the Ribbon

    Everyone is using Data Validation in Excel for simple or complex projects. However if you decide to clear your data validation rules there is No direct command on the ribbon to do that: So you have to go to the Data Tab >> Open the data Validation dialog box >> Click on Clear All >> Close the dialog Box.
    My suggestion is to integrate this functionality with the Data Validation button in the ribbon (as explained in the attached Graphic) which will enable the user with a click to either clear Data Validation from a selected range or from the…

  6. Money in Excel adding subcategories

    every time I try and add a subcategory - for example - auto insurance I get

    Category changes not saved
    There was an issue saving your changes. Please try again.

    I've tried entering it under the category Auto and Bills; neither will allow me to add the subcategory. This is not just for this example. this happens EVERY TIME I TRY AND ADD ONE. ITS ANNOYING AND NEEDS TO BE FIXED

  8. Improving 'Refers to' Navigation in Name Manager's New Name dialog

    An accepted issue for many years, the 'Refers to:' box in the 'New Name' dialog is troublesome when you wish to edit or move within this box using the arrow keys. This is because the cell references change instead.

    Given LAMBDA is going to use this interface, and the formulae may be long (pointed out by fellow MVP Oz du Soleil), isn't it time this were fixed?

    This issue catches us all out from time to time and I struggle to see the benefit of using the arrow keys to change the cell references here.

  9. Bug: Dragging Cell Into Empty Table Cell Always Results In Erroneous Warning

    Drag a cell from inside or outside a table to any empty cell in a table and the dialog "There's already data here. Do you want to replace it?" Clicking OK or Cancel results in the same outcome: the cell is moved.

    This bug is annoying and disrupts workflow. Please fix.

  10. Corrigir descrição da opção "Remover Duplicatas" no Microsoft Excel

    Corrigir descrição da opção "Remover Duplicatas" no Microsoft Excel

    No caminho Dados>Ferramentas de Dados temos a opção "Remover Duplicatas".

    "Duplicatas" no Comércio significa: "título de crédito nominativo pelo qual o comprador fica obrigado a pagar, em determinada data, a quantia correspondente à fatura de mercadoria vendida a prazo."

    Ao deixarmos o mouse na opção já aparece "Duplicatas" que está errado por fazer confusão ao comercio, e no texto em seu "balão" aparece como "Duplicadas", onde o seu único significado é "que ou o que se duplicou; que foi copiado por uso de artefato próprio ou manuscrito (diz-se de documento ou…

  11. Maintain Copy / Paste

    For some reason if you copy a cell (ctrl+c) and then do something else in the workbook (for example enter text in another cell), Excel clears the pasteboard and you can't paste (ctrl+v) the text any longer. Excel needs to be able to maintain the pasteboard so that copy / paste can function normally.

  13. When removing a filter from a column ... Keep the actual selected line AND DONT GO ROW 1 !!!!!!

    It's so dumb, no need for description .. but well after 25 or more versions of excel ...
    So you filter a column, and you find the line with the data you want, you select the cell/row you want, and go in the menu and remove the filter .... TADA excel unselects the line you wanted and goes back to row 1 !
    really sad :(

  15. Support more than 1 million (1,048,576) of cells in a single sheet

    Hello,

    PQ and PP are only limited by available RAM and you guys did it once already (64K rows in 2003 -> 1M rows in 2007).

    Maybe it's time to remove this 1M rows limit and make number of cells limited unlimited, constraint only by RAM available to the user?

  16. Select columns starting at a chosen row

    Provide a way to select columns starting from the chosen row all the way to the bottom. For example, I would like to select columns B through E from row 5 all the way to the bottom. This can currently be done by dragging from the top left desired cell to the bottom of the file, but this is difficult for large files. Also, after cutting and pasting these columns elsewhere, it leaves the original area blank. There should be a possibility of shifting rows left after this operation.
    Provide the same functionality for selecting rows.

  19. settings.json

    In line with Visual Studio Code, can a Settings.json be set up ?
    e.g. workarounds to save default number formatting etc are cumbersome.

  20. Delete a line in a table without sizing down the table

    I use a table a lot, and often I delete lines as I complete the task. However, when I "delete line" of the table, the table gets shorter (1 line shorter). It is Ok for the lines under it to go up, but I always end up with a short table that I have to manually extend if I want to stay inside of it. So I want the frame of the table to remain the same size, even if the lines go up (so, creating another empty line at the bottom of the table could be an option)
