  3. validation *must* be case sensitive

    Need users to choose either "M" or "V" in a cell. No other option is allowed. The target application does not accept "v" or "m". However, Excel yields TRUE on "M"="m" instead of FALSE. How can I enforce case sensitive comparison?

    When I create content, copy the content to clipboard, then undo my content, open a new excel file or new tab and paste my content, please keep my content in the clipboard so I can paste it to the new location! During the creative process, I sometimes like to snapshot the version I got to and revert to the previous, but not loose the extra work between, and repurpose for another tab.

  5. Enlarge the font in the Find and Replace window for those that have a hard time seeing

    Enlarge the font in the Find and Replace window for those that have a hard time seeing. Similar to have you can enlarge the worksheet, it would be nice to be able to enlarge the Find What box in Find and Replace.

  6. Bring Back Track Changes

    When sharing documents, which is supposedly the beauty of 365, it almost seems ridiculous to remove the feature that makes everyone feel the safest and most collaborative.

    THE BACKGROUND CAN BE CHANGED BUT NO MODIFICATION OFR TRANSPARENCY IS NOT AVAILABLE, PLEASE ADD THE FEATURE TO MAKE THE EXCEL LOOK COOLER.

    IF WE CAN ATTACH VIDEO FILES OR GIF's OR IMAGES TO ANY BOX IN A EXCEL WOULD BE VERY ATTRACTIVE TO PRESENT IN MEETINGS AND ALSO IN COLLEGE PRESENTATION.

  8. All lists must have a search box. Even the context menu. The search box must be a part of the list object itself.

    All lists must have a search box. Even the context menu. The search box must be a part of the list object itself.
    This is not limited by Excel.

  10. To be able to change the strikethrough font colour (like you can with the underlining option) and have a different font colour for the text

    Could you please put in the option to change the colour of the strikethrough font to a different colour from the text, like you can with the underlining feature. For example:- black font with a red strikethrough.

  13. reversecase

    I often find that I have typed in text data whilst CAPS LOCK is on. Word has a feature where one can change text case easily. It would be great if this could be included in Excel.

  14. Allows users of a locked spreadsheet to use spellcheck without macros.

    Currently you cannot use spellcheck in excel for locked spreadsheets without macros. Our organization does not want to enable macros for all computers. It would be nice when locking the spreadsheet to have the ability to click off spellcheck as an option (like you would for select locked cells, format cells, insert rows, etc). It should be included under the options for 'Allow all users of this worksheet to:'.

  19. In excel cell content or cell comment should have a Reminder option

    My idea is that, if we can keep an option in excel for a cell content or cell comment reminder which should be like an outlook where we can keep a reminder for any specific email.

    Why this is need is - when we want to change a particular cell content at later point of time (like a day after or week after) and normally people forgot about the change needs to make.
    So if we can implement cell reminder option via comment box or any other way then it shows a pop up in excel when we opens which…

  20. Fix bug for formula entry

    When I type in "=" followed by clicking on a cell, say, "A1" the "A1" is selected by the cursor and so when I type "+" the "A1" gets overwritten. This is an issue with Excel on my Mac 16.22 (190211). It does not happen on excel online.
