  1. SysInspire NSF to pst converter

    SysInspire NSF to PST converter is known to be a simple, well-arranged application and has a profound user-friendly interface. You will get detailed instructions at every step of the procedure. The software provides strong criteria to convert the NSF file to pst file format. The NSF to Outlook conversion software can locate the NSF files within a specific folder of your computer and the user does not guide the software to add the significant NSF files. Batch conversion is also supported which is the new and advanced feature added in the software. The software previews all mail items like the…

  2. improve Cell Reference

    When using formulas and calling cell by reference (ex: "C2") it works as it should. But it should be possible to write it like C(1+1), because it would greatly improve use of functions.

  8. Drag sequence auto fill

    There should be an option to fill whole column and to preserve all results. In this example: the first Sequence in A2 should take 3 cells and push the other Sequence automatically to the next free cell below. (you should implement it in ->the right click -> "Auto Expand Sequence"). Then the second sequence in A3 should be pushed to A6, take 3 cells and so on.

  10. Provide a standard function called "Last()" which will find (and/or go to) the last populated cell, column or row in a worksheet

    This function would find (and/or go to) the address of:

    (a) the last populated cell in a designated column or row or range in a specified worksheet; OR

    (b) the last populated row or column in a worksheet.

    These would be particularly helpful options when, for example, the user wants to specify the extent of a range, which has a moving target for the last cell in the desired range.

    Similarly, a function called "First()" would help in finding and/or specifying the start of a desired range in a worksheet.

    It might even be practical for any such functions to…

  14. Add search bar ( Excel options GUI)

  15. Pivot tables: Actually apply the user-set paramter "for empty cells show ..."

    In the pivot tables' options, there's a checkbox called "For empty cells show..." along with a textbox. Whatever the checkbox's or the textbox's values are, empty cells all display (Empty) in our pivot tables. The pivot tables should respect the user's choice.

  16. Icons for Custom Formatting! I want a LOT of icons! I REALLY want the ability to add my own custom icons....

    Icons!

    I want a LOT of icons! I REALLY want the ability to add my own custom icons... perhaps as a set I can create under File>Options, OR using a file picker at the time I am creating the CF.

    For instance, I often wish for:

    Question Mark
    Clock
    Calendar
    Ellipsis
    Map Marker (not a flag, but a "teardrop")
    Smiley Faces - Happy, Neutral, Frown
    "In Process" circle
    "No" Symbol - Red circle with diagonal line
    Stop Sign shape
    Thumbs Up & Down
    Lightbulbs - dimmed and illuminated
    Round Target with Arrow at Bullseye
    Plus Sign
    Dotted Outline Icons -…

  18. Formula calculation ignoring text

    Formula calculation ignoring text.
    For example in formula bar user type in:
    = 100 boxes per person * 10 person * 5 trips
    Excel would ignore text and calculate numeric answer which is 5000.
    Furthermore, user is given a choice whether the cell shows the original formula or numeric answer in that specific cell.

  20. Include ticker symbol for “S&P/NZX 50” index in the “Stocks” functionality within Microsoft Excel

    The inclusion of the S&P/NZX 50 ticker symbol and related S&P/NZX indices (such as S&P/NZX 10 and 20) would be highly beneficial for the analysis of NZX shares, thanks!
