  1. There are Duplicate Shortcuts For Converting a List into Table, Let's use one them for another functionality

    A Table has a lot more functionality than a List. Although there are 6 different ways of converting a List into a Table, Excel users find it easy to do that with a shortcut. Surprisingly there are 2 shortcuts performing the same exact task:
    CTRL + T (T stands for Table) or CTRL + L (L stands for List)
    Why should we reserve 2 shortcuts for the same action? let's keep only the relatively new one CTRL + T (users are familiar with this one)
    While Assign the older shortcut CTRL + L to copying to the left (L stands…

  2. Improve Table Design Tab Appearance and Functionality

    There is No synchronization between the Filter command on the Table Design Tab and the similar command on the Data Tab. So if you apply a Filter from the Data Tab then clear it, the corresponding Filter command on the Table Design is inactive. On the Other hand, if you insert a Slicer from the Table Design Tab ► it inactivates the Filtering commands on the Data Tab. Filter on all tabs should synchronize together as well as with the Slicer.
    Looking at the distribution of commands on the Table design Tab, I would prefer removing the Filter command from…

  7. Fusionar Células

    Uma outra função que o Excel deveria ter é o fusionar células (não é mesclar). Se tiver algum valor duplicado, mas em alguma coluna ter algum valor diferente, uma função poderia unir as duas e mantendo apenas valores únicos.

    Ex: A1 - japão A2 japão

      B1  em branco   B2  é bonito  

    a função fusionar deveria ficar assim:

    C1 japão C2 é bonito

    poderia ter uma função = fusion (a1:a2)

  9. Synch OneDrive files

    Can you just make the product work as promised? Half the time, my OneDrive files won't synch. They claim someone else is using it but NO ONE is. AS a result, I waste dozens of minutes every week saving and resaving things, trying not to lose files or work, all because this ridiculous product won't even perform its basic functions without hiccup.

  13. Please make the active cell more visible in a worksheet. It's almost impossible to see.

    I have problems seing which cell that is active in the sheet I'm working on.
    I know that there are a lot of people having the same problem but no one has found a solution. It's extremely hard to see when the cells have borders around them.
    You don't know where you are!
    It's really hard to the eyes and gives me a headeache.
    Please fix this.

  14. Speed up Tables calculated columns calculation and filtering

    Since the introduction of tables in Excel I have been a huge user, mainly because of the column names reference we can use in VbA and in formulas.

    But when a table gets a little big, it gets slower and slower.
    And it takes huge percentage of the CPU.

    For example, I have a table of 7 columns coming from an ODBC data query.
    78,000 lines.

    I added 3 columns that are calculated just by concatenation of column values.

    Previously this table was quick and easy to filter.
    Now that I've added those formulas, I sometimes have to restart Excel…

  17. Fix the "problem with clipboard" mess

    This clipboard issue is well known to Microsoft and it can and should be fixed immediately. With all the Ph.D. programmers at its disposal, there is no excuse other than "We don't really care if you users have annoying and time wasting problems with our software. We are working on more important things and can't be bothered with trivial issues." Since we pay for Office 360, we users are entitled to product functionality, and this clipboard issue causes us problems we don't need. Please fix this issue ASAP!

  19. Please Fix Excel - Performance of new versions ~50 times slower than older versions

    We have several Excel 64bit applications for customer sites, that populate a sheet with data from various automation controllers. Where as these applications have be performing flawlessly with Version 1902 or earlier versions of Excel, new versions 2012 and 2101 cannot operate the code. We have identified these newer versions are incredibly slower than the older versions mentioned when populating cells. A simple For Next loop confirmed that version 2012 is between 40 to 60 times slower, version 2101 somewhere between 30 and 50 times slower in performing the same basic task of writing cells from one sheet to another…
