  1. Maintain Copy / Paste

    For some reason if you copy a cell (ctrl+c) and then do something else in the workbook (for example enter text in another cell), Excel clears the pasteboard and you can't paste (ctrl+v) the text any longer. Excel needs to be able to maintain the pasteboard so that copy / paste can function normally.

  2. Buttons without VBA

    I Can't see a reason not to add a button feature. Of course, its applications would be more limited than those VBA allows for, but would still unlock some interesting options for worksheets without the added complexity and safety concerns macros carry around. For this particular application, I don't think about buttons like separate entities, but as interactive cells.

    Option A: Add binary data validation with an optional button interface. It would be functionally similar to the drop down menu, but only allowing to change the value from TRUE to FALSE and vice-versa on click. Limited on cell values, but…

  4. Fix bug where the Related Dates under Info is wrong when the document is created either on desctop och in a folder

    When an excel-document is created either in a folder or on the desktop by using using right mouse click then New Microsoft Excel Sheet, then the date is wrong. Not only in my Excel in others too. Serious problem when satisfying version history relating to certain quality standards such as ISO 27001

  5. Have the ability to change the input cell format in Excel

    Writing this for the second time: the feint green cell input colour and border thickness is far to difficult to see when moving around and sorting spreadsheets. Notice that all your MS Excel Training videos have a great, black coloured thick, very obvious input box - need to have the ability to change this in defaults or wherever...see attached

  7. Seperate "Enable fill handle and cell drag-and-drop" & "double-click on cell border" features

    Currently, the "Enable fill handle and cell drag-and-drop" feature and the double-click on cell border feature are tethered together.
    I would like to disable one feature, but keep the other feature enabled.

    I would like to have to "Fill handle and cell drop-and-drop" feature enabled, but disable the double-click on cell border feature, as this often causes me to unintentionally jump across the spreadsheet which can be quite frustrating.

  8. A number format that lets you put zeros at the beginning of a number reference, like 00794411 for example.

    Many utilities have zeros in front of the meter or company references(00794411), when paying invoices or bills, that have to be included to pay them and when corresponding with the utility companies, as it's not valid to them if the zeros aren't there. So there should be an option in the number formatting section for reference numbers including zeros in front, where it doesn't take away zeros in front of the reference, but lets you put as many zeros in front of it as you like.

  10. Money in Excel Capital One

    Without being able to get my Capital One data in Money in Excel I can only get a small fraction of my finances. Either work with a data aggregator that plays nice with Capital One (not Plaid) or allow me to import my data manually.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your valuable feedback. Currently Money in Excel doesn’t support Capitol One accounts. We’ve shared your feedback to the apt team for review.

    Thank you for using Money in Excel!

  11. I'd like to avoid the "DISCLAIMER regarding financial market information... etc." - please allow possibility to tick off after reading

    Hi
    Seeing the "DISCLAIMER regarding financial market information is provided as-is... etc." multiple times is annoying.
    Please provide a possibility to tick off the disclaimer after having read it - potentially based on the user, so it pops up ONE TIME for each new user of the spread sheet.
    I hereby hope NEVER to see the Disclaimer after having seen it ONCE in the same spreadsheet :-)

    Regards
    Søren

  13. Add Office Scripts to the native Excel Application

    I understand getting full blown VBA working on the web is extremely unlikely (impossible?).

    So - make Office Scripts run on native Excel (and other Office apps). That way we get

    1) One common development language across all Microsoft Office applications

    2) Support for Javascript/Typescript in native Office.

    Thank you for sending Microsoft feedback. Your input is valuable to us and helps improve our products.

    Office native platforms already supports JavaScript/TypeScript for the add-in (extensions) model. The built-in Office Scripts/automation is not yet supported.

    We do intend to support Office Scripts across other platforms and hosts. However, the priority and schedules for such expansion in coverage is not yet finalized. We are right now focussed on delivering it for Online platform with Power Automation support. Please stay tuned for future announcements to learn about the coverage.

    Thanks,

  15. Stockhistory function to return the correct historical price - adjusted for splits AND Dividends

    Currently the stockhistory function returns a historical price that is only adjusted for splits. Using this to calculate historical returns for any instrument that pays any sort of dividend or capital gain will yield incorrect results.

  20. Fix conditional formatting range splitting

    Conditional formatting is helpful, but it often breaks due to the ranges it applies to being split. So end up with 1000's of little rules create a nightmare.
