    • Excessive space on top of formulae bar when options bar is hidden

      There is a small space on top of the options bar and under it, but when it is collapsed, both spaces add together resulting in a excessive wide space.

          • Bug (maybe?) on Range.Find when range is single row (/column)

            The Range.Find vba method fails whenever the range is a single cell. Rather than returning a Null when value not matches the cell value, it searches the whole column/row for the value. If it finds a match on other cells, then it returns that range.

              • User defined 'functions' in a worksheet with input and output cells

                Create a new type of 'worksheet' which acts in the same way as a VBA function, but instead of writing code you use the worksheet itself to create the logic.

                A designated set of cells would be used to specify inputs, which the rest of the sheet could refer to as normal using formulae.

                Then one cell would be designated as the 'output' cell.

                Finally a function name is assigned to the worksheet which can be called from anywhere else within the workbook

                e.g. =MySheetFunction("Input1", 234.56)

                In the background, Excel calculates what the output cell would equal given these two…

                • Enable self-contained/standalone data model

                  Allow the data model to function independently of external data connections without having to embed the source data for the model in Excel worksheets. This enables use cases where a single Excel workbook can be completely portable and self-contained even if the user does not have access to the external data sources used to populate the data model. The only way to do that now is to distribute multiple files (e.g., the workbook with the data model and data source file[s]) or to embed the data in Excel worksheets, which effectively means it gets stored twice (i.e., in the sheet…

                  • Share individual worksheet

                    It would be useful if it was possible to share individual worksheets in an Excel workbook. I would like to be able to create a workbook with multiple sheets and share just one of those sheets with others Office 365 users.

                      • Make the default search criteria persist between Excel uses

                        How about you make the default search criteria persist between Excel uses (so that you can search by Value instead of by formula)

                        • Show File Location For Autorecovery Files, Make File Comparison/Viewing Easy

                          If I happen to be working with two files of the same name and an error occurs in one, the Autorecovery notice is useless in telling me which one has the problem (which would help me decide whether to recover it or just delete it because it was a scratch file). There also ought to be a facility for comparing a file to be autorecovered with any previous version or another related file to easily find out what might have changed that's worth recovering, etc. Basically, Autorecovery is a good idea but it's very poorly implemented and backed up by…

                                • Improve speed of Undo on Filtered Data

                                  When data is Filtered and some action is performed. After that we open the filter and then press Undo then it takes whole lot of time to undo the last action. I believe excel does undo line by line and when all lines are undone it shows filtered data again with old data. Instead it should first reverse the filter and then undo all cells. I think it will speed up processing.

                                    Make spell-checking dynamic, as in Word. Then ensure that it will run only on unprotected cells. In this way users of forms could get their entries spell-checked whilst ignoring all the fixed text on the form.

                                    • Boxplot chart should work as pivot chart too

                                      Some charts (e.g. box-plot, scatter) are not available when chart's source data is a pivot table.

                                      All charts should work also when based on pivot table.

                                      • Auto creation of contents page using Hyperlinks to all the sheets on a file and a hyperlink back to contents page.

                                        Create a contents page automatically via the hyperlinks functionality. This will create a contents page hyperlinking to a specified cell in all the sheets on the file and back to contents page from each sheet.
                                        This will save a huge amount of time for excel users when creating a suite of reports that are layers in many sheets on one file.
                                        This will save a huge amount of time for many users and a neat functionality to have, rather than using VBA (macro's) to do this.
