  1. Add a floating totals row to dynamic arrays

    When using dynamic arrays, it would be nice to have the option of a floating totals row at the bottom of the dynamic spill range.

  2. Pre-release new versions of VBA

    I have been having a lot of trouble with changes that are being made in Visual Basic by people who are obviously not VBA users themselves.

    I am a developer and keep historical versions of the programs I am working on, and I'm tripping all over changes that are being made. And it's particularly irksome that I have go back and figure out why something isn’t working and then re-debug code that's that has been working for years..

    Another thing I have a problem with is recent changes in the way VBA itself works. It use to be than when…

  4. restore previous versions

    excel or all microsoft applications should store previous saved documents so you can recover an older version thats been saved previously, I had a scenario where I edited a spreadsheet, saved and closed, the following day I found I had made many errors and was unable to undo and did not have any old documents saved, there should be an option to select which saved file you desire with a time and date stamp

  7. Bug: Shortcut Control + [ not working, when starting Excel with Russian input

    If you start Excel 2016 with Russian input method selected in Windows 10, shortcut Ctrl+[ does not work. To fix it, you need to close all workbooks and restart Excel with English selected.
    Short search online shows that this is a very common problem experienced by lots of people who often tracks formulas. Bug is extremely annoying for financial modellers.

    If you override default input language to English in Windows settings, behaviour changes to following: no matter what language was selected in Windows on Excel startup, if the first formula was started in Russian, shortcut does not work.

  8. Protecting Sheets / Workbooks with Password - can't see password

    When protecting sheets / worksheets with a password, there is no "eye" icon to display the password so you can verify that you've typed it in correctly. It would be great to have this function to help reduce errors and reduce the risk of locking yourself out of a file.

  10. Criação de capítulos

    Seleção de um grupo de planilhas e formar com elas uma espécie de capítulo, com mesma cor da guia. De modo que ao clicar em um capítulo todas as planilhas estejam disponíveis para visualização (como é o Excel atual) e as que não pertencem fiquem recolhidas (ocultas) dentro do seu capítulo. No arquivo em anexo apareceria apenas as guias amarelas e abaixo delas os nomes dos capítulos. Quando se clicasse no capitulo Verde as guias verdes seriam exibidas e as demais ocultas. É um modo de trabalhar com vários documentos vinculados dentro do Excel com uma visão mais limpa das…

  11. Bug in SUM

    Field1 349000
    Field2 -346688.4
    Field3=Field1-Field2 2311.6
    Field4 5464.15
    Field5=Field3+Field4 7775.75
    Field6 -3313.75
    Field7 -142.75
    Field8 -139.35
    Field9 -4179.9
    Net should be ZERO -2.36469E-11 (NET=Field5+6+7+8+9)
    Net should be ZERO 0

    NET gives an irrational value instead of ZERO..

  12. Option to put the ribbon/menus/status bars on the side

    Most people now have wide aspect ratio monitors. Makes more sense to allow an option to move the menus, ribbon and status bars down the sides. That way data can go from top to bottom of the screen

    All Office programs could benefit from this.

  14. Microsoft Query - Some functions are not translated correctly

    There are two functions in Microsoft Query:

    "Cancel and Return to Microsoft Excel" and
    "Return Data to Microsoft Excel"

    It would be nice if these two functions were translated into the respective language.

    For example: In the German language package, these functions are in English.

  15. Conditional Formatting Incorrectly Interrogates Calculation

    Enter in one column, 4 rows of numbers: -1.25, -1.75, 3, 0
    Make a conditional formatting formula to interrogate the 4 numbers:
    =sum($a$1:$a$4)<>0
    If true, set to bold + red
    For the above set of numbers, conditional formatting will be TRUE.
    If numbers are changed to: -1.2, -1.8, 3, 0
    conditional formatting will be FALSE
    Why does Excel not correctly calculate when a second decimal place is added?

  19. Here's An Absolutely Awesome Idea! Make Excel More Stable!

    Excel 2003 was rock solid. 2007 not so much but 2010 fixed that - another solid release. 2013 was ****. 2016 started out solid but, since you have been doing the monthly updates, the stability has been getting worse. It is now worse than 2007 and 2013 combined. Excel doesn't crash as much as it just gets stuck while consuming a lot more CPU cycles than usual. Sometimes it will recover, often it just goes on and on and on. It's random: it doesn't seem to have any particular cause. It can happen when opening a workbook, running some benign…

  20. Grabbing

    How about giving us space at the top of the window, where the title bar is, to grab and move the window without having to do something else or resize and then move! I would think this was a no-brainer, but you keep putting **** up there so there's no real estate to actually grab.
