  3. Add data bar to sparkline

    I was wanting to do a bar chart in a cell, but didn't see it in Sparklines.

    It took me a while to realize what I wanted was a data bar and it was under conditional formatting.

    Please add/integrate/move that feature into the Sparklines section of the ribbon. That's where I look when I want to add charts/graphs right in the cell.

  6. I want the original formatting etc. button back! I don't need the ^Q-uick button at all on copied data.

    I want the original formatting etc. button back! I don't need the ^Q-uick button at all on copied data. Why didn't you keep that feature when you added the other functions. I use that feature all the time in my work.

  9. Create multiple conditional formatting rules for a range of cells in one go

    I know this can be done already (create multiple conditional formatting rules for a range of cells) but it's tedious to do it one by one, especially if I have to select multiple ranges located in different parts of a worksheet. For example, I want to be able to highlight duplicates on certain ranges and highlight 3 specific matches in 3 different colors. I have to make four separate rules just to do that and I also have to select or copy-paste the range multiple times. I'm just hoping we can make the process easier.

  11. VBA doesn't save pictures

    We now can save pictures from Excel. But we can't use VBA to do the same thing. VBA needs to have the same ability.

  15. A truly different first page.

    If Format Cells window > Number tab > Category menu contained an Auto Page Number selection, I could put auto page numbering, Page X or Page X of Y, in any cell, as well as in the Header or Footer. In that way, my Different First Page - could truly be Different.

  16. EASILY FORMAT VARIABLE TEXT SPACING WITHIN CELLS. INCLUDES AUTO HEIGHT

    Text spacing has always been a problem inside Excel cells. The worst problem happens when you use "Auto Fit Row Height" and "Auto Fit Column Width. Both of these shrink the cell walls too close to the cell text, making it hard to read. This difficulty is compounded when a worksheet is zoomed out. My answer to the problem can be solved and a few more needed features would be added besides my solution. The solution is to talk to the guys over at the "MS Publisher Development team". If you could get them to give you the code for…

  18. Select function

    Hi, I'm a fan of both UNIQUE and FILTER functions, however - typically - the more I use them, the more I want from them! I think Excel would benefit from a SELECT function, that worked in a hybrid fashion of SQL select, interspersed with FILTER. It would allow me to specify columns to select and a criteria on which to select them, like FILTER, but crucially, I'd be able to nest those columns inside other functions. Thus, a table with Date, Person and Sales columns could be grouped into monthly sales by person for Jan-Mar by using the select…
