  1. Excel Save As - Does not work unless 'More options...' selected! because read-only

    Save As - Does not work unless 'More options...' selected!

    I tried saving this file as, but when I select the correct file in the new Microsoft Excel interface, it says read-only.

    However, I just need to select 'More options...'

    I think this is a bug guys!!

    Slan!

  4. TopN & Others filter

    TopN & Others: Please add to the filter options for Pivot Tables (& Power BI) to filter the Top 10 (or Top N) and then combine all other items into combined OTHER. Currently, the Top 10 filter only shows the Top 10 items and does not include the other items which can be misleading. The TopN & Others grand total should include ALL items.

  5. Make an adjustable limit for how often users are required to enter a password when editing locked cells on a protected sheet.

    The current feature only requires one entry of the password. Then the user can edit the cell freely.
    For the security of complex formulas, it would be helpful to have an option where specified, or all, users are required to enter the password to edit a locked cell every time they leave the cell after editing (i.e. users must enter password to edit locked cells every: "30 seconds", "1 minute", "2 minutes", "Always", "Only Once").
    Sure you can ctrl+z if you mess up the formula while entering data but in high information spreadsheets its easy to accidentally enter data into…

  10. free Exchange Recovery Software

    There is lots of Exchange EDB to PST Recovery Tool in online market, but problem is that how we can select the best tool in various tools, it is very difficult to choose the right one, so as per my experience I would like to suggest a proficient third-party tool such as Enstella Exchange EDB Recovery Software. It helps to convert EDB to PST without any hurdle. The software is quite powerful to even repair corrupt exchange database and restore all EDB items back into the previous format without any data loss.

    Download freeware to click here-https://www.enstella.com/exchange-email-recovery.html

  12. PowerBI: don't limit uservoice to Busienss/Edu users!

    I tried to post some suggestions to PowerBI but could not because I am not a student and not employed.
    .
    Why am I a second class customer just because I am learning PowerBI on my own using a hotmail account?

  13. PowerQuery: M / DAX etc make the language syntax case insensitive.

    Some of the command languages in the "PowerTools" the commands are case sensitive.
    .
    DON'T DO THAT!
    .
    If there are 2 parallel commands defined by case. That is just swank. It is a real PITA getting syntax errors just because I match start the command case spelling.

  14. power query: ungroup steps

    While it is handy to group similar steps into one, it would also be handy to be able to ungroup when needed. For example to remove/undo one without removing the other(s).

    Make it graphical since many people have no clue how to edit the underlying code.

  15. power query: number steps

    In powerquery, please add option to display automatic step numbers. It would help when consulting with someone else to be able to refer to a simple step number. Some people are too lazy to rename steps so it can be hard to refer to a specific step in a query

  16. Retention of established worksheet borders

    As programmed today; established borders are wiped-out when previous cells are dragged through columns or rows for the purposes of recalculation.
    Please re-program, to prevent wiping-out established borders of worksheets.
    Many thanks!

  19. customize the ribbon

    track ribbon icon clicks and automatically create a custom ribbon based on actual use/click.

    ideal to also include items in the ribbon in which people use keystroke shortcuts for because they are not directly included in the ribbon. such as paste special (text only, transpose, …)

  20. Naming new sheet

    When we are moving a single sheet from current workbook to new workbook,

    It automatically takes the name for that new sheet as book1, book2 etc

    Request you to please add an option to name that new sheet before it's created so that when we want to share a single sheet from current workbook, we'll just move to new workbook then rename it immediately & then share.

    No need to save that new sheet to rename it.

    I think this small addition will help many people like me.

    Thank you.
