    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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  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.

  9. Power Query: Provide setting to eliminate the space in the name of each step

    When Power Query creates a step it uses 2 words separated by a space (e.g. Added Custom). Within the advanced editor this requires a #" " be placed around the name of the step (e.g. #"Added Custom") which is challenging to read when you have so many steps.

    Please provide a parameter setting in Power Query for "Create steps with no space". If selected by the user the steps would be created without the space (e.g. AddedCustom) and thus inside the advanced editor there is no need for he #" " wrapping and it becomes much easier to read).

  10. ½. Using fraction symbols in calculations.

    When using the auto correct options for a fraction in the format "1/2" to become "½", these symbols are not respected as a value when calculating, resulting in #VALUE!.

  14. 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

  15. Option to remove all the clutter from the title bar

    The title bar is polluted by a lot of unnecessary clutter these days - a "quick access" toolbar, a strange search box that doesn't work, account log in, some weird share button...

    For those of us who actively dislike this sort of thing, could we have an option to remove all this useless clutter from the title bar and return Excel (and all the Office programs) back to looking like ordinary Windows applications, with just the Excel icon, the name of the open document, and the standard minimize / maximize / close buttons?

  16. Make it free or lower the price?

    I know an admin from 2015 said that you don't control the pricing, and that's fair, I just want to know who I can contact to suggest making it free or adding a discount at least for Windows users.

  17. Vertical, Hierarchical Worksheet Tab Column at the right instead of Worksheet tabs at the bottom

    Instead of having worksheet tabs at the bottom of the viewing window, put the worksheet tabs in a column to the far right. This way you can see more tabs on the screen at a time and use longer more descriptive worksheet titles. This would make worksheets much easier to navigate and organize. Furthermore it would be great to make the tabs able to be hierarchical as in the attached example where Schedule 4 has a drop-down arrow that that reveals tabs for sub-schedules a, b and c. Of course please keep all of the fill color options for the…

  18. 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…
