  1. Improve accuracy in dates

    When one enters two dates in a column, for instance:
    12/01/2019 00:00 ==> General format (43800)
    12/01/2019 00:30 ==> General format (43800.02083)
    And wants to extend the dates for many months, Excel loses accuracy and produces wrong minutes, because the general format of the date has only a few decimal places. In order to get the correct date and time, one must edit and change 43800.02083 to 43800.02083333333333333333333. After that, the minutes come out correctly.

    Windows 10, 64bits, pro - Is it possible to "Pin to Taskbar" command "Backup Now" in Backup options.
    This idea is equivalent to "Permanent backup" with less demand of storing space on the external HDD.

  6. Excel time values are not accurate.

    Write time values every hour by hand on column A and by autofilling on column B. If you now compare the columns, unlike expected, all pairs are not equal. The length of an hour varies between the hand filled values and even more between the autofilled ones. There may occur unexpected errors, if 16:00 is not really 16:00.

    That does not happen with LibreOffice.

  10. Synch OneDrive files

    Can you just make the product work as promised? Half the time, my OneDrive files won't synch. They claim someone else is using it but NO ONE is. AS a result, I waste dozens of minutes every week saving and resaving things, trying not to lose files or work, all because this ridiculous product won't even perform its basic functions without hiccup.

  14. Speed up Tables calculated columns calculation and filtering

    Since the introduction of tables in Excel I have been a huge user, mainly because of the column names reference we can use in VbA and in formulas.

    But when a table gets a little big, it gets slower and slower.
    And it takes huge percentage of the CPU.

    For example, I have a table of 7 columns coming from an ODBC data query.
    78,000 lines.

    I added 3 columns that are calculated just by concatenation of column values.

    Previously this table was quick and easy to filter.
    Now that I've added those formulas, I sometimes have to restart Excel…

  17. Please Fix Excel - Performance of new versions ~50 times slower than older versions

    We have several Excel 64bit applications for customer sites, that populate a sheet with data from various automation controllers. Where as these applications have be performing flawlessly with Version 1902 or earlier versions of Excel, new versions 2012 and 2101 cannot operate the code. We have identified these newer versions are incredibly slower than the older versions mentioned when populating cells. A simple For Next loop confirmed that version 2012 is between 40 to 60 times slower, version 2101 somewhere between 30 and 50 times slower in performing the same basic task of writing cells from one sheet to another…

  19. Camera tool (Linked Images) respect screen updating and Calc=manual

    Camera Tool images needs to respect the Screen Updating=false and Calculation=manual setting - and not just burn through CPU for ever single update to any cell on any (other) workbook

    This makes Excel appear to have hung when it is just re-rendering the same data 10,000 times

  20. BUG: Floating Point Operations Errors with low precision numbers

    Excel is incorrectly performing math operations.

    Cell B2 = 6.2
    Cell C2 = 5.85
    Cell D2 = C2-B2
    Answer = -0.3500000000000010

    This is incorrect. The answer is 0.35, with no rounding required. This is causing several operations in my worksheet to fail. I shouldn't need to work around this using TRUNC().

    Please Advise.
