  1. Conditional formatting-when will ever the improvement be done?

    I have no idea when will you ever perform the fix in conditional formatting that’s been suggested ages ago! Since 2013! You said in this forum about the need to prioritize, so that you’re accumulating votes!
    But then I’ve voted on a similar idea before, and it was read by Excel staff, and I think this was done in 2016 and still it has not been implemented! When will it be done?!!!

  3. Fix More Borders Tool in Ribbon

    Issues with 'More Borders' tool. First use of the tool in any session generates a printing error message, all OK after that. is this just my PC Excel (Office 365) with Win10 64 bit Pro - Desktop PC

    Annoying rather than an issue but should be easily fixed?

  5. Paste Match destination option greyed out in excel 2016 , but avilable in excel 2010

    Paste match destination option is available in excel 2010 and not in 2016 . This option had been greyed out in excel 2016 . Due to lack of this option, the data can't be copied from one excel workbook to another workbook in the required format as the instances created are distinct. ( i.e. The numbers are copied in "text format" rather than number format.) Paste destination option can eliminate the above issue and get the date copied in the required format by the user.

  6. Problem to be fixed: a cell will reformat (from three to 14 decimal places) if I raise a non-integer to a non-integer power (1.3^0.75).

    Problem to be fixed: a cell that I format to show a number to three decimal places will reformat to 14 decimal places if I raise a non-integer to a non-integer power. Example: Cell D7 = 0.75; Cell E7 = 1.2; Cell F7 (which is formatted to three decimal places) = E7 ^ D7

  7. Conditonal formatting for pivot table row and column labels

    Excel allows conditional formatting for pivot table data that automatically updates on refresh.

    It would be good to have similar functionality for conditional formatting of the row and column headers.

  10. Allow someone to format Cell data as JSON

    When someone posts a data in excel cell like

    { Object A { Object B, Object C { Object D}}} , then cell "JSON formatting" (if available) shall format it like

    {
    Object A

    { 
    
    Object B
    Object C
    {
    Object D
    }
    }

    }

    There are many open source toll which provide this feature of inputting json body and get a beautified version (like https://jsonformatter.curiousconcept.com/).
    If we can do JSON format in excel cell, it will help many people.
    In fact people will use excel just to format data as its readily available in many windows platform.

  12. Shortcut to custom formats in quick access olbar

    I use a custom format that looks like currency but has dashes instead of zeroes, I'd love to be able to have a shortcut to access that format by pressing Alt+3, for example, on the quick access toolbar. The should also be a shortcut to refer to the currency format, which is a default format! Also, you should be able to define format preferences - I'd love to indicate that whenever I use the currency format, apply it with no decimals and center the formatting.

  13. Optional setting to limit the size of your file (ex. all info must be on page 1)

    Optional setting to limit the size of your file (ex. all info must be on page 1 or limit columns allowed from A to G only - H-infinity are blocked). This allows similar printouts to Microsoft Word with benefit of using columns, rows, tables, etc from excel.

  14. Selected Chart Data Labels Missing Selection Handles

    Selecting a chart's data label(s) should display all labels with selection handles. Instead, some of the data labels are not showing as selected, even though they actually are selected (as evidenced by making a font change and seeing that all data labels are affected!)

  16. I find it strange that Excel in Office 365 does not have Rupee symbol in Indian Language option. Do'nt you think it is high time it should?

    It is high time Indian Rupee Symbol and the way use number should be part of Windows and Office immediately.

  17. Allow Charts To Contain Multiple X Labels

    Allow bar (and other) charts to contain Multiple X axis labels.
    Stack the labels on the chart in the user specified order.
    The dialog box (see attached file) could simply have a button with a Plus sign to add another label. Of course arrows to arrange the label order along with a button to remove the extra label would be useful.

  18. Naming Groups

    It would be helpful to be able to add a name to the [+] button that appears for grouped rows/columns so when your cursor is over the expand button, you will be given a pop-up description of what grouped data you are expanding.

  19. When a range of cells is selected with the bottom border icon selected in the Font ribbon, apply the bottom border to ALL selected cells.

    When a range of cells is selected with the Bottom Border icon selected in the Font ribbon, apply the bottom border to ALL selected cells. This should also be applied for any cell borders indicated by the icon.
