  5. Let people actually enter data (hint: NOT EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS A DATE)

    Sometimes I enter text. Sometimes I enter fractions (funny huh, in a data entry application). They ARENT DATES! Thanks for destroying the actual data in the process of converting it. Also no matter how many buttons I mash it "detects" the date every time unless I manually enter every field with a ' before it. Here's an idea. DO WHAT I ACTUALLY ENTERED. Not what you think an idiot might be TRYING TO DO. The actual commands I entered. Do it. For once.

  7. Imprecise clicking and selection with mouse cursor

    For several months, and several versions, I have noticed a very persistent bug in Excel in Office 365. As of the current version, It is happening on every excel file, regardless of file size, number of sheets etc.

    Let's say that I have a brand new workbook open. The number of rows visible on the page is 28 and the number of columns visible is 23 (up to column W). Let's call this "Initial Page View". If I start clicking with the mouse, I can select cells in the range from A1:W28. Now let's say I have scrolled down with…

  11. Breaking change in Selection.Group

    Hi,

    with the last update as of 08/12/2019 you apparently rolled out a breaking change in the naming convention of generated group fields in pivot tables.

    Here a macro fragment that throws now an exception 1004, "Unable to get the PivotFields property of the PivotTable class"

    ActiveWorkbook.RefreshAll

    'regroup date values (first of this month to first of next month, as the report is per yesterday, take always -1 day)
    Range("A4").Select
    Selection.Group _
    Start:=CLng(DateSerial(Year(Date - 1), Month(Date - 1), 1)), _
    End:=CLng(DateSerial(Year(Date - 1), Month(Date - 1) + 1, 1)), _
    Periods:=Array(False, True, True, True, True, False, True)
    Range("A4").Select
    '20190812: Microsoft…

  12. I'd like to selectivley copy some cells to external apps like Notepad

    When I selectively select cells to copy and paste into an app like Notepad, Excel seems to copy a range, ignoring my selection. I'd like copy and paste to work as expected, copying only the data the user selected to copy.

    To see this behavior, create a new spreadsheet, and enter the following:
    A1 : 1
    A2 : 2
    A3 : 3

    Then Control Click cells A1 and A3. Press Control-C to copy, then Control V in Notepad to paste.

    Expected results:
    1
    3

    Actual Results:
    1
    2
    3

    Was informed I needed to post this bug here as a…

  13. Provide simple VBA means for getting the Module Name, Procedure Name and Line Number.

    After Googling the three, i suppose Module name might be presently available, but i am amazed at how many times people have looked for these three options over the past couple decades, yet this group functionality has not been provided. I certainly do not know the complexity of that which we seek, so if it is too hard for Microsoft programmers to do, please advise so all of us wishing to have these three, mainly for error/bug reporting and handling, can understand why years of requests have been apparently ignored, which i would like to believe is not the case.
