  1. CINT, CSTRING, CDOUBLE as Formulas

    You can do it in VBA, can we just have it as a formula to avoid txt to number drama.

      We have these already in Excel. They are:
      =INT
      =TEXT
      =VALUE

      You may also want to take advantage of ISNONTEXT and ISNUMBER as you use these.

    • Make an option to disable sounds

      Because dings are annoying. And you can't disable excel volume in the volume mixer in windows taskbar.

        In File > Options > Advanced > General, there is an option to “Provide feedback with sound.” Uncheck that, and I think you’ll be good to go.

            Hi Christian,

            Excel already supports Ctrl+A, and you can change the color of sheet tabs by right clicking on them and choosing “Tab Color.”

            Hope that helps,
            Dan [MS]

          • Function required to identify if cell contains a formula

            Very often a modeller needs to be able to identify/confirm that a cell contains a formula rather than a hard-coded input (and use that result in another formula)

                Hi Shivam,

                You can do this today by pressing Ctrl+A or by clicking the square (with triangle) between the A and 1 of the row/column headers.

                Cheers,

              • Writting a paragraph instead of one straight line

                  Hi,

                  You can do this already today in Excel – two different ways to achieve slightly different results:

                  1. You can write one long line and then click “Wrap text” from the “Home” tab of the ribbon

                  2. You can use Alt + Enter to go to a new line (equivalent to using Enter in Word). When you do this, the Wrap Text formatting will be applied automatically as well.

                  Hope that helps, let us know if you love it!

                  Cheers,
                  Dan [MS]
