  3. 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.

  4. Power Query Text/CSV should be Texto/CSV in Portuguese

    Hi. On Data / Get & Transform Data, the option "From Text/CSV" should be translated to "De Texto/CSV". There is a missing letter "o" in the current translation. Thanks.

  5. Make "Evaluate Formula" Window resizable.

    Now that we are getting more functions that allow for lengthier and more complex formulas (e.g. LET and LAMBA), for the love of God please make the Evaluate Formula window resizable (and remember the size when Excel is closed).

    This has always been an issue and with longer formulas it is next to impossible to debug them using the fixed size (i.e. small) evaluate formula window. This didn't use to be as big an issue because you could expand the formula bar and press F9 to kind of step through the components of the formula. But now with LET the…

  6. Let add setting to switch gridlines on/off

    Now we can do that for current worksheet only. These days it's quite desirable to have an option to keep greedlines off on permanent basis for each new workbook. That could be done using template or by changing/adding registry key https://www.quora.com/What-are-some-ways-of-removing-gridlines-in-Excel-2007.
    That will be much more suitable if we have such option in Advanced section of Options.

  7. Track changes request

    Request is to enhance the track changes

    1- Give us the possibility to track changes on specific sheet.

    Often we have a sheet for data processing and we do not wanted to track changes on that specific sheet.

    2- Track changes only in a specific area of a sheet

    Same as previous but apply to a specific region of a sheet as not the whole sheet need to have changes to be track

    3-Have the history sheet always visible

    To see history we have to go inside track option and enable the track sheet, in intensive review session we would…

  8. To apply a function on Chart Title...

    When we visualize the data, we need the Chart Title to be dynamized. İt is impossibe to

    apply Simple Excel Functions like Textjoin, Concat, Concatenate, etc. on Chart Title Cell.

    To keep Chart Title interactive, we implement the necessary Functions combination in

    another cell and make link from Chart Title Cell to it.

    From time loss point of view, Direct implementation of Functions Combination on Chart

    Title Cell would be very practical for Excel Users and appreciated.

  9. Make it possible to automatically make first letters of sentences capitalized.

    Autocorrect/capitalize first letter only works in text fields, not cells. To achieve this with cells, you have to use intricate formulas that are impossible to use if you have varying types of data across the same rows or columns. I'm using Excel to create interlinear texts as part of learning several languages at once, I use Google Translate to translate short standardized sentences without contexts that confuse the automatic translation. The problem is that Google Translate does not capitalize the first letters of translations in several languages, including Spanish and Russian. I'm going to add 5/10/15 sentences every day for…

  10. Replace reference to cell with referenced cell name if later was named

    Background


    1. In A1 put 123.

    2. In B1 put formula "=A1+1"

    3. Give A1 name via "NamedCell".

    Problem

    Formula in B1 refer to cell A1 via cell reference rather than cell name

    Proposal

    After any referenced cell was named update all references with its name.

  15. Change the Excel formula bar to the one from Power BI Desktop

    Change the formula bar for advanced users as well as for beginners. better reading of functions makes work easier for everyone.
    Indent the code, view the line (s) where there is an error, quickly see the syntax of a function and a bar that adapts depending on the length of the code that is entered.

  16. Allow non-calculated data in pivot tables

    There are times when I need to add a column to a pivot table that just shows the value from the field without calculation. For example, part number and part name. I will setup the the pivot table to summarize by part name, but I need the part number to show up in a column, not as a sub-item of the part name in the first column.

  20. A Between Value Function

    Instead of just having the "AND" function, have a Between function. It would work like this: BTW(Value1>2, Value2<10, if value is true, if value is false)
    So if 3 different referenced cells data is 1,2,10
    Then the results would look like this: False, True, False
    The function would look like this: BTW(A1>=2, A1<10, "True","False")
    The key thing being the ability to produce a value for true or false functions without the use of another "IF" or "IFS"function to help out.
