  1. Multi dimentional cells

    Some people use Excel as a quick and easy database or documentation.
    Would be nice to have, at minimum, a history of change of each cell.

  2. stock and geography

    Service ticket number - 1016144833. Stock data is not live.. There is always a delay/lag of 5 to 10 minutes.. Even after clicking "Refresh All" button, data is delayed.. I have attached a file for reference.. I have circled the data delay message from Refinitiv (data provider) in red.. I have also cross checked with live data online and there is always delay/lag.. My question is - "Is Microsoft planning to solve it?" If yes, by when will it get resolved? if not, I subscribed office-365 for stock data and if I am not getting live data, O-365 is useless…

  5. DELETE New #SPILL! Error!

    Your new #SPILL! Error is the stupidest thing in the world.
    Almost all of my spreadsheets no longer work because of this change.
    Please fix immediately!

  6. A spreadsheet software that doesn't suck like everything else Microsoft makes

    Excel is shite. It's about as good as everything else that's in Microsoft's entire repertoire. A total cluster .

    How do any of you have jobs?

  7. Prevent file from being emailed, perhaps do it with a prompt.

    So you would click a button somewhere to warn before sending. Very helpful in the business sector. Seems like an easy thing to add. THanks!

  9. Speed up deletion of rows when filter applied.

    Hi,

    If when deleting rows with a filter applied included the following to the backround processing maybe it would help reduce wait time. This is based on the fact that deleting a single range of rows when no filter is applied is almost instantaneous:


    1. Add 2 temporary columns, one to index (unique ID) each row to keep original sort, the second to give the filtered rows a reference of "2" and the unfiltered rows a reference of "1".


    2. Sort the second column and delete down from rows containing "2".


    3. Sort by Index column, delete both columns, cursor to A1.


    I…

  10. Able the autofill tool in the worksheets

    As we are able to use the autofill in the cells, sometimes I need to create some worksheets with months and the autofill will help me in my performance.

  11. Please support numbers up to 2^(2^64). Thank you very much!

    I love Excel, except when it can't handle large numbers...

    2^(2^64) would be appreciated...

    Maybe in a year or two?

  12. Correct the Snapshot month drop down

    Issue: Money in Excel Snapshot drop down for the month selection will not display December 2020. The latest date is November 2020. I started a new session and imported the data but no change. I had an IM session with a MS tech and I was sent here.

    Hi there. I'm using multiple monitor system about this in excel 2019 on status bar shown "Display Settings" and can't hide it. I have tried everything but can't hide it. Is it possible to add "hide display setting on status bar", because it's uncomfortable for working.

    thank you

  15. Add search bar ( Excel options GUI)

    I suggest to add search bar for excel options since there are so many choices, this will make Excel look more professional and familiar.

    This idea can be used in case more than 20 choices will look efficient

  16. Please make the active cell more visible in a worksheet. It's almost impossible to see.

    I have problems seing which cell that is active in the sheet I'm working on.
    I know that there are a lot of people having the same problem but no one has found a solution. It's extremely hard to see when the cells have borders around them.
    You don't know where you are!
    It's really hard to the eyes and gives me a headeache.
    Please fix this.

  17. Gerenciador de regras problemático

    No gerenciador de regras, acredito que o botão excluir deveria estar no final à direita, longe dos demais botões, frequentemente quando seleciono alguma regra na lista de "Mostrar regras" acabo excluindo uma das regras por engano, por favor alterem isso.
    Outro ponto é, criem um botão para "desfazer" para o caso de excluir uma regra por engano, não faz sentido todo o sistema aceitar o CRTL + Z e isso não.

  19. Improve Table Design Tab Appearance and Functionality

    There is No synchronization between the Filter command on the Table Design Tab and the similar command on the Data Tab. So if you apply a Filter from the Data Tab then clear it, the corresponding Filter command on the Table Design is inactive. On the Other hand, if you insert a Slicer from the Table Design Tab ► it inactivates the Filtering commands on the Data Tab. Filter on all tabs should synchronize together as well as with the Slicer.
    Looking at the distribution of commands on the Table design Tab, I would prefer removing the Filter command from…

  20. Make Office feature updates available to Software Assurance customers.

    Currently Office 365 versions of C2R gets all the latest updates and features based on channel but customers which require Office in air gapped environments are stuck point in time releases. Surely its about time to recognise that Office requiring constant internet connectivity isnt possible in every use case and offer updates for those that have invested in the product lifecycle just like Office 365 customers?

    Example, Excel's shocking performance has been a pain point for many businesses for many years now with no fixes but as soon as this has finally been sorted out its only available to Office365…
