  3. How do I create and upload a debug file to Microsoft? Excel just hung. I restarted Excel. during the restart, it said it was sending somethi

    Feedback Really needs to provide a method to create a debug/error reporting creation tool and reporting mechanism

    Many Application have an Option under Help to create such a package and then, upload it to their site.

    Please add such functionality for Excel (True, maybe ALL Microsoft Products :) )

    Your present Support Functionality under Help is Very DATED :(

  4. continue to allow updates to Window 7

    I can't upgrade to Windows 10. I have tried every single possible method I can find to avoid the C1900101-40017 error on upgrade and every method has failed. i have unplugged everything, I have booted from recovery move, I deleted all unused drivers, I have upgraded everything, multiple time, I have restored and repaired Windows and still get this error.

    I have sent Microsoft emails about this, and the only reply references me to the things I have already tried.

    Now you won't allow me to use new Excel features because your upgrades don't work despite trying everything. How fair…

  6. tabs invisible due to excel bug (macro warning seems cause)

    My tabs are invisible due to a clear bug. I can double click in the grey space below the worksheet where the tabs should show, and then change the randomly clicked tabs' name. This also changes the view to the randomly clicked worksheet. But with 11 sheets that were visible when I made the book yesterday, I do not want to randomly find the right sheet. Takes too long.
    - closing and reopening the workbook does not help
    - other workbooks in the same excel instance do show their tabs
    - a macro warning appears when opening book and i…

  7. Filtering a column

    As a time saving measure when there are thousands of rows and you only want to select a few within those thousands it would be awesome if you could click in one check box, then go down to where you want to end the selection and "shift + click" the ending of your selection and it will grab all the rows inbetween.

    Currently you have to click each indivdual box, which is very time consuming.

    This would be a very helpful addition to Excel.

    Thank you.

    Best regards,
    Rick Johnson

  8. There are Duplicate Shortcuts For Converting a List into Table, Let's use one them for another functionality

    A Table has a lot more functionality than a List. Although there are 6 different ways of converting a List into a Table, Excel users find it easy to do that with a shortcut. Surprisingly there are 2 shortcuts performing the same exact task:
    CTRL + T (T stands for Table) or CTRL + L (L stands for List)
    Why should we reserve 2 shortcuts for the same action? let's keep only the relatively new one CTRL + T (users are familiar with this one)
    While Assign the older shortcut CTRL + L to copying to the left (L stands…

  9. put back a method of dictation or allow Dragon. I am very disappointed in Microsoft just like many customers having the same issue.

    Microsoft 365 "XL" has taken a very big and noticeable step backwards. No dictation from Microsoft or allowable from third-party software like Dragon.

  11. No-frills program for more data processing in excel

    There should be a separate version of excel for running larger groups of data. I believe the limitation in current excel versions (around 1 million rows) is restricted because of all the font/shapes/extra formatting stuff that bogs down the system. Could there be a version of excel that has 1 font and no frills graphs that could process much more data?

  12. remove pagebreaks

    Please provide an option to remove all page breaks from the entire workbook without having to go in to advanced options for each sheet. When not intending to print the file, the page breaks disrupt the comfortable viewing of the file needlessly, and with workbooks that have over a dozen sheets, removing these becomes very time consuming.

  13. Taskbar Start app in separate Windows session

    I know that the Taskbar is a Windows issue.
    .
    But the way Office applications start and run is entirely an Office Issue. I want to know why Office 2010 and 365 work differently on the taskbar.
    .

    I've had too many cases when a file causes an application crash. If I have multiple files open in the same session, all of the documents are lost. Hence work is lost (regardless of the save options (and no I prefer not to use OneDrive) ). So I prefer to open documents and spreadsheets in separate windows sessions.
    .
    .

    When I…

  14. Allow the Implicit Intersection Operator to be disabled.

    Dear Microsoft Office assistants, the Implicit Intersection Operator has rendered 1 of my Excel docs useless. There should be a way to disable this operator. Fortunately for me, I can still open my doc on my older computer. Thanks for your attention.

  16. make stable

    Make excel stable. Bugs were never repaired since windows xp. It became worse in win-vista, it became worse in win-7/8 and it is still very bad in office 2016. Working with a network in which several people may access the same file when necessary does not work properly in office 2016.

  17. Quick access toolbar streamlining

    When using fill color or font color, it is frustrating that when using keyboard shortcuts (after pressing alt key) i have to scroll through the entire palette to reach the color i desire. Even when added to the quick access toolbar, I still have to scroll through it.
    Changing the option on the quick access toolbar to have the fill/font color automatically change to the currently selected color.
    Alternatively/additionally, add a specific color to the quick access toolbar - which would facilitate quickly changing with multiple colors.

  19. Pocket Excel

    My users often use the calculator to take care of simple calculations. Using Excel, in contrast, lets our users experience the breadth of depth of the incredible program Excel is. Unfortunately each user prefers the calculator because it's so much faster and our keyboards have a button for it.

    If we could have a pocket version of Excel that could used for quick and simple calculations, we would really appreciate it.
    Here's how we envision it would look:
    A grid of cells (5 rows by 12 columns) that can only be interacted with the keyboard. Functions can certainly be used…

  20. Excel freezes during Microsoft Teams screen-sharing session

    I always share Screen instead of Excel app/file.  I've had to quit and re-open Excel spreadsheets too many times during Microsoft Teams screen-sharing sessions.
