  1. Allow different formatting for dates in Excel header/footer without VBA

    At present, the header and footer only work with the system date format. The user should be able to specify the formatting for the date in the footer, perhaps by including a format code with the date. Options could include any permutation of d, m and y:

    dd-mmm-yyyy
    mmmm d, yyyy; etc.

  2. active-x

    Stop showing Active-X controls on the Developer tab of the Ribbon. When Windows users add these open source controls to workbooks, they will not work cross-platform on Mac.

  10. Rename the term "Data Types" - for things like Stock & Geography

    The term "Data Types" -- for things like Geography and Stock -- is quite confusing. It pertain to so many different things.
    I was trying to find information whether or not i could create my own "custom Data Type" in Excel; the results had nothing to do with what i was looking for, as you can imagine.

    How about renaming to:
    - Data Entity (would match the Azure Common Data Service) or
    - Data Domain.

    Anybody, ideas?

  13. Why Monitoring Your Wiki Page Has Become More Important

    We know that Wikipedia is the most prominent and most used platform for gathering information of any and almost every type. This capability of the platform makes it a potentially responsible platform but over time people have realized one of its major drawback. The Wiki Page Creation Services makes the platform changeable, which allows it to change every second. The problem which rises is that now people cannot use the problem for citing other content which questions its credibility. However, by monitoring your page closely, you can avoid changes on it. This act will allow the people to use your…

  14. Disabling F1 short-cut

    The idea is pretty simple. Add a setting that will disable the F1(help) shortcut.

    Not only will it save Excel powerusers future frustrations, but it will also eliminate the need for physically removing the F1 switch from the keyboad

  15. Form Control Option Button Grouping Does not work in xl2007,xl2010,xl2013 and xl2016

    As per the heading the grouping of Form Control Option Buttons does not work.
    I am NOT referring to Group Boxes. I am referring to Grouping as in right click on option button and hold the Ctrl key and select the remaining buttons for the group and then right click and select Group -> Group.
    The buttons remain as a single group and only one button out of all the groups can be selected. If a button is clicked on one group then any selected button in the other groups are un-selected so the grouping doesn't work.
