  1. Series of dates

    I work with rain series and generated a series of dates in Excel from 1900 to 2020. This series is shifted by one day.
    I discovered that excel treats 1900 as a leap year, however, this year is not a leap year, which causes the series to shift.

    I corrected the problem manually for my studies, but this type of problem can cause errors for users since excel is a program used by scientists, accountants, and entrepreneurs in general.

    I use the 2010 version of Excel, and despite knowing that this version is no longer supported by the company, I…

  2. Produce Ratio Charts between two assets

    Please allow users to produce ratio charts between two assets. You already allow multiple assets to be shown graphically. For example, show the ratio between XLV and SPY. This is done by dividing XLV by the SPY value for the same day and then plotting over a given time period.

  3. Provide for sorting of a group of groups of data (i.e., ranges or named ranges or tables)

    Provide for sorting of a group of groups of data (i.e., ranges or named ranges or tables):

    Several grouped rows (or columns or even possibly adjacent cells) i.e., D4:L80, M4:U80, V4:AC80, AN84:AV164, and BF84:BN164

    With the same cell within each main group (selected from any of the selected main groups) being the sort criteria.

    Could offer the ability to designate the destination of the resulting sorted data, horizontal or vertical display order, with or without a unique (or possibly even user defined) separator.

    Additionally, although not needed (BY ME AT LEAST) offer the ability to sort the subgroups within a…

  10. 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.

  11. Solid Default Trendline

    Some time ago, the trendline default changed to "round dots," and it looks terrible. I honestly can't bear to look at the dotted trendline. Thankfully, I am able to change to a solid trendline, but still very annoying. Please fix this ASAP.

  12. There should be an Accessibility Category in this forum.

    I am surprised to see there is no Accessibility Category on this forum. I believe users should be able to send Accessibility suggestions and ideas. This is a key difference among competitors.

  13. Can’t remove the Macros button

    I’m not able to remove the Macros button from developer tab in the new Excel version by right-clicking it! In the previous version2010 (build 13328.20292), we are able to remove the button by right-clicking it. Please revert this function in the new version! Currently I’m using 2010 (build 13328.20356).

  15. Scroll between tabs with mouse scroll wheel

    Excel should let you scroll from one tab to the next by just using the mouse scroll wheel. Google Sheets has this functionality and it's really convenient.

  17. bankers rounding

    Please add a function for banker's rounding or round to even. That way we don't have to write our own. That way you don't have to add a breaking change to the default ROUND(). Just include another function by default.

    Example
