  2. Money in Excel should allow manual entry of transactions.

    Money in Excel should allow manual entry of older transactions so that the whole year's transactions can be contained in 1 sheet. Right now Money can only import about 90 days of transactions and January and February are missing from my transaction log.

  3. Text to Columns Wizard - Select multiple columns when changing Column data format

    Text to Columns Wizard - Select multiple columns when changing Column data format

    On using the Text to Columns functionality, you can change the Column data format (step 3 of 3). You can only select one column at a time and set the format. It would be great to select multiple columns and change the column format to one specific format in one go.

  6. Stop automatically changing text and number fields to dates

    Excel needs to provide a setting to allow users to prevent Excel from changing number and text data fields to "Date" data format when importing data. THIS IS INCREDIBLY AGGRAVATING. Once Excel incorrectly changes something in my .csv file to a date, I can no longer recover the number or text that it was supposed to be, and I must re-export the file from the database. It is absolutely unacceptable for excel to change my data, especially without giving a warning or providing a preferences setting that I can disable. Yet another example of how excel is a piece of…

    Allow manual import of accounts for money in excel because some institutions don't work well with the current import method (e.g., wealthfront with 2 factor authentication that uses an authenticator app)

  11. Power Query should allow Get from Folder from a Ondrive folder URL (not the mapped folder on the local file system)

    Power Query allows Get from Folder from a local file system. If we are using Onedrive, we have to first map the folders to that local file system. We cannot directly enter the URL of the Onedrive folder as an https URL.

    This would avoid the problem of having queries break when the local file system is different between, say, my work and my home PCs. EG the work folder may be C:\Users(work userid)\Onedrive - (my onedriveID)\folder name. But my home folder is C:\Users(home userid)\Onedrive - (my onedriveID)\folder name.
    I'd be happy to use "try Folder.Files (work*) otherwise Folder.Files (home*)…

  14. Make power query in excel = power BI

    Hello,
    Many of power query functions which has been in power BI for years still doesn't exist in excel version!

    For example Html.Table,Web.BrowserContents and so on.

    As far as i understand both excel and PB using the same engine under the hood.

    Please make excel power query equal to power BI one. Thanks!

  18. remove empty rows and columns automatically

    When importing data from other formats, say a pdf, the data is often formatted badly with lots of empty columns and rows between fields of useful data, these are usually minimised and get in the way of performing useful functions.I would like the ability to automatically remove any column or row within a highlighted data area, where the whole column or row contains no data. the sheet I am looking at currently goes up to column EY, but only has 12 columns of actual data. similarly it is 597 rows high and only should be around 100.

  19. Getting Data from another excel file copies the cell format and style

    I want to have a separate excel sheet that can get an updated data from another worksheet and also follows the cell format and style.

    I can only get an updated data but it won't follow the cell format and style

    If I do a copy/paste, I can get the data with the format and style but it won't update any data if there are changes from the other workbook

  20. Power Query Undo/Redo

    The Power Query editor is nearly perfect! However when I accidentally deleted an Applied Step and realized I couldn’t undo that, I realized PQ really does have an opportunity for improvement! Please upvote this post so they will add Undo/Redo capability into Power Query!
