    • Remove all background colors so those who use high contrast black an see what is in those areas--this includes the ribbon, menu, tool .

      Allow the background colors/themes to be removed; including highlighting. Allow the borders indicating an active to be thick, medium sizes to find. Allow the font to be bold or to change a style that is more acceptable for the user to see. These apply to ALL MS OFFICE APPLICATIONS. Colors and graphics aren't friendly for some who use high contrast black. Also, IE, allow the websites to remove graphics so thete the sier. For me those graphics hurt my eyes, too white!

      • Creation of custom regions within Excel for 3D Maps by post code

        A tool within the application to create custom regions in 3D Maps by entering/selecting a list of postcodes/postcode sectors. This will be very valuable to businesses with their own defined services areas not covered by conventional county/other boundaries.

        Currently we can highlight areas via postcode, but not group them together to show different regions comprised of many postcodes.

        • Please include other data in the new Data Types feature in Excel. The data for dividends is totally missing.

          For dividend/income investers, we really need dividend information if the data types for stocks is to be useful.

                • оффлайн обновления

                  Узнал на днях, что MS Office обновляется только через интернет (что странно, при том, что оффлайн обновления можно скачать) (см. вложения)

                  В связи с чем хотелось бы пожелать добавить таки функцию оффлайн обновления.

                  У нас много промышленных объектов, где во-первых интернета иногда в принципе не бывает, хорошо если удастся сделать звонок, а то и этого не бывает. Во-вторых предоставлять интернет на АРМы запрещается службой информационной безопасности.

                  Как в этой ситуации выкручиваться, не понятно. Так что либо добавьте обновления оффлайн, либо объясните как устанавливать те, что сейчас есть (есть подозрение что девочка из поддержки не права). На данный момент при установке…

                    • A Bunch of Stuff

                      1) Revamp VBA to fully support Unicode.
                      2) Add a page break comment in VBA
                      3) Clean-Up or Replace the ActiveX Controls.
                      4) Add 32 and 64-bit integers and multi mode, modular and complex number capabilities to cell content and formulas.
                      Recasting everything to doubles impairs Excel capabilities in solving Operations Research, Scientific and other similar mathematical problems.
                      5) Add a user friendly programming language and compiler/interpreter that operates in the worksheet environment where string formula may be used to generate source code..

                      6) Current user *********** into Excel functionality is dismal.

                      • Reorder columns easily

                        There should be an easy way to grab a column or multiple and drag them to another spot. For example, if you select columns D & E you could then drag and drop them before column B (then they would become columns B & C). Right now you have to make 2 new columns, then copy over, very tedious. The same suggestions for rows of course.

                        • File menu item should be a menu item, not a take over whole screen

                          I can't tell what file I am saving, and all context is lost when someone clicks "file"

                          This is a grievous error and needs to be fixed... I can't see why it would be done this drastically horrible... I can see something to help people but this is hurtful...

                                MOM notification to the concerned stakeholders !!!

                                A lot of MOM gets captured in the excel. There should be a feature that the owner of the task gets a notification on his email id(that can be entered in the excel) after the meeting. The task should be assigned to the respective stakeholder after selecting their name in the drop down and they will get a email notification of the task.

                                      • I need a cut/past option to paste as formatted rather than having to use =Text in each cell. For use with Word w/o DDE

                                        Provide cut/paste option to paste as formatted rather than value as DDE no longer works with Word Mail/Merge and OLE doesn't keep formatting from Excel.

                                        • It should be easier to copy graphs and then use different (but equivalently structured) data to feed them.

                                          I don't know if this is a problem just with scattergraphs, but I often have to produce multiple identically-formatted graphs using different columns of the same table showing the relationships between pairs of variables. If I copy the graph and select the new data, this doesn't work. It should.
