  1. Bridge to Julia scripting

    Since the Julia programming language is in a path to become one of the top leading programming languages in about 5 years by looking at its roadmap, and that among its strenghts are python similarity, concurrency and high level data crunching with ease, it would be great to plan ahead and get Excel to be there on time to interchange capabilities. Even if it is not by considering Julia as another scripting language, and it is more on the side of some visual plug-in API.

  2. Pause Solver while it is solving

    Add a reliable way to pause the solver while it is solving. I have tried Esc, but this is clearly not working once the problem set up has completed and trials start. Give a clear button in the ribbon-bar, that would pause the solver and give the user a dialog box that has the following options: continue, stop (use latest variable values), cancel (discard solver values).

  3. VBA doesn't let add a comment when the cell contains middle dash symbol

    I get an error 91 when I try to add a comment in a cell with "-" value.

    To fix it I have to add a space after and before of "-".

    Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(1, 1) = "-"
    Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(1, 1).Comment.Text Text:="-"

    If I made this manually, not from vba, it works fine.

  4. Important: VBA "Tools" > "Additional Controls" not showing on Windows 10 64-bit

    When editing UserForms in the VBA Editor I accidentally removed an item from the toolbox (with right-click > Delete item). I should be able to add it again with right-click > Additional Controls or Tools > Additional Controls but nothing happens when I click on them.

    The cursor changes to "busy" for 1 second then goes back to normal but nothing happens next, no window appears and it is impossible to add controls to the toolbar.

    I know this is a feedback site and not a help site, a lot of people have had the same issue and asked for…

  6. Prevent Copy-Paste in Excel all applications including Web, Android etc.

    The idea is preventing other users from copy-paste into Excel sheet. So that the user can enter only correct values in excel.

    Why it is required?
    I have applied Data Validation on specific column about numbers only, then this validation works fine if user enters manually, but if user copy from external source or paste into that column then the data validations won't work on that cell.

    And if I supposed to use Macros to prevent copy-paste, however the limitation is macros only work in Desktop Application only.

  7. Creating macro or repetitive function without writing code in VBA.

    We need to be able to write repetitive Excel tasks through simple functions or formulae so that whenever we need to re-perform that task we can just use the same function to process the same.

  8. Please get the Excel VBA cpontext sensitive help back to work!!

    I don't really care, if it's offline or online help as long as it's fast and reliable, but currently pressing F1 in VBA shows only the MS documents content list (https://docs.microsoft.com/de-de/).
    For 20 years the context help with F1 was really fast, informative and helpful. Now its just scrap. BTW: Germany is an online underdeveloped country!! Remember: we Germans need OFFLINE HELP. (I still have a 1 Mbit connection!)

  9. PLEASE.....Add TTS Turbo Macro to the Microsoft Office Add-in Store

    Training the Street, Inc. (TTS) is a prominent Wall Street financial modeling company that trains the majority of Wall Street/finance firms in the United States. TTS has developed an Excel Add-in that thousands of professionals use to enhance their Excel modeling speed. But since Office 365 has started churning out rapid updates, the Add-in has become unreliable and TTS has stated they no longer are making the updates necessary to counter Microsoft's changes. https://trainingthestreet.com/macros/

    Is there a way your Dev team could look at this simple Excel Add-in and find a way to add it to the Microsoft Office Add-in…

  11. Ignore cell style while using .find in VBA and the xlWhole parameter

    When a macro fills a cell with a text and later needs to go back to that cell the .find method and the xlWhole parameter should do the job. However it fails when the cell style is not standard. That behavior is very odd. Please ignore the cell style when searching whole texts. xlPart works fine, but often you simply need exactly the whole cell text.

  13. Range.Find should use cell values, as opposed to the displayed text.

    The following equation fails if you change the column width. See attached pictures.

    colNum = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("E5:DA5").Find(-10).Column

    It should be finding that cell H5 has a value of -10.
