  1. On Excel can you add the ability to email out individual sheet tabs on a workbook ?

    I have on 1 workbook anywhere from 5 to 50 individual sheets tabs open for my events. When i try to email an individual event to a specific client it only allows me to email the entire work book with all other events on it. Then it prompts me to save a copy of one individual sheet tab as its own work book and email it out that way. that means that i would have to save a copy and email out each individual sheet tab. Counter productive and takes too long. Can it be fixed to where you can…

  2. I would like to be able to protect a cell and copy its calculated content to a word document currently from what I can tell is you cannot

    I have created a spreadsheet to calculate phrases and numbers from America to SI and would like to protect the cells calculation and copy the result to another program or word doc.

  4. Sticky Notes

    Allow for the addition of non-cell specific notes to be added to a spreadsheet in a very visual way to allow people to, at a glance, review and add thoughts, ideas, etc. I feel that this is something that is sorely lacking in all of the Microsoft Office products and is a tremendous tool tha I have used in other software. See attached for an example

  6. Excel gantt chart should be able to live share information

    i should be able to live share an update with a group of people, for example if i change anything on the project another person should be able to see that or get a notification that it has been changed, or we can edit it live so the person can see the changes i am doing at the same moment as i am updating it

  7. Na função DDB , substituir "Do While DepYear < 1 Or DepYear > LifeTime" por "Do While DepYear < 1 Or val(DepYear )> LifeTime"

    Com o intuito de evitar um loop infinito na função : Depreciação sugiro uma pequena correção do código conforme arquivo anexo. Se o código não for alterado um loop será gerado se o usuário digitar um ano invalido para a depreciação. Obrigado.

  9. Co Author

    The co author feature in excel is not safe. If the excel file is uploaded on my onedrive and If some unknown person gets the link that person can log in and make changes to my workbook which I think is not good.
    Therefore when a new person is accessing the link to my workbook he/she should get a pop up for a password that needs to be entered to access my file.

  14. Updating locally synced workbook links after the supporting file is changed in Sharepoint web app

    We have a master summary excel spreadsheet which is linked to cells in supporting workbooks. The files are synced locally on my computer but saved on SharePoint. This way, other users make changes to the supporting workbooks using web access. Then, I open the summary excel spreadsheet saved locally and update values to received the new information. Even though the web version does not supporting linking between workbooks, this has worked in the past since all files are synced locally and the master is refreshed using computer app locally. Beginning on Friday 10/18/19, we started receiving an error for each…

  15. NEED TRACK CHANGES IN EXCEL BACK!

    We have to save each edited version now rather than just have a sheet that lists the changes that were made to an excel document. That is absurd. You deemed it limited but the work around we have to do now for it, is ridiculous on our end.

  16. protect sheet

    Just for consitency how about making the icons for Protect Workbook and Protect Worksheet act the same way.

    One simply changes to Unprotect Sheet the other highlights to show it is on.

    How about both highlighting to show on and renaming also to Unprotect.

    And inside the dialogs showing both others have (Optional) passwords. It is not stated in both dialogs.

  17. Thanks for excel, word and Microsoft services. I have paid Office 365 on both applications. Then the robot asks me my Microsoft informations

    On me demande mes informations de connexion. Je tente de re-créer un compte microsoft, on me pose un tas de questions, je réponds comme je peux, je paie Office 365 pour Excel et Word (200€ pour un an). Pendant ce temps, Microsoft m'envoie un code, que je mets. Rien ne correspond. Je ne peux pas ouvrir Excel. On me demande un code, que je n'ai pas reçu. J'ai déjà payé. Impossible de se connecter. Le mail est obsolète. Je ne peux répondre à toutes les questions. On va m'envoyer un code. J'ai déjà payé. Le code arrive mais n'est pas…

  18. Em uma tabela compartilhada quando aplico um filtro esse filtro é aplicado para todos usuários da tabela, isso é muito inconveniente

    Em uma tabela compartilhada quando aplico um filtro esse filtro é aplicado para todos usuários da tabela, isso é muito inconveniente, pois atrapalha as outras pessoas que estão editando ao mesmo tempo.

  19. Create web link to specific cell

    It would be useful to have a "create link to specific cell" feature. i.e. , right click on cell in either desktop or web version of excel and it copies to clipboard a link of the form "https://foo.sharepoint.com/sites/...B4&quot;
    When clicked this link will open the relevant spreadsheet and go to that cell, either in desktop or web excel.

  20. Allow users to turn off cache shared documents, so that they don't clash with Sharepoint documents.

    For SharePoint access, unfortunately with AutoSave turned off, the cached version of Excel is what is opened locally instead of the sharepoinnt version of an Excel Spreadsheet. The only way to sync up to the SharePoint version is to delete the cached version that is stored locally on your machine. But how to do this? It is buried and hidden, you have to go to the Office Upload app and then delete the cached spreadsheet name that is waiting to be uploaded to the SharePoint. Then and only then can one fetch the correct version of the SharePoint Excel spreadsheet.…
