  3. Delete an open file

    If you have an open Excel file, it would be nice to send it to the trash while it's open, instead of closing it / finding it on the server / and then deleting it.

    Maybe a File / Delete option (under File / Close)
    Or, next to "Share", you could have a "Delete" button which sends it to the recycling bin.

    Just a thought--you could always recover/restore any file that was accidentally trashed.

  4. On Print Preview page, move Page Setup to top of page

    With Page Setup at the bottom you always have to scroll down to get to it.

  5. previous result in find and replace

    in the find and replace feature, Word has "next" and "previous" buttons to click through the results. Excel should have a "previous" button.

  6. growing table

    I have a query linked to an outside source. As the query grows in size, it would be great if the table had a feature to link a column in that table to the query on another sheet so that as it grows the table will also.

  7. Include Levenshtein Distance as a baked-in formula

    The Levenshtein Distance Formula is great for duplicate detection. I've tried using the PowerQuery "Fuzzy Match" algorithm, but this assumes there's a known clean list of values, and I often don't have that.

    I'm working to standardize data and need the ability to normalize/relate data to itself.

  8. Graph Paper should be an option for Excel,,, that is actually square.

    On tool bar, choose "Graph Paper" to be provided with row heights and column widths that are in the same units, so that you can choose sizes for to make graph paper with cells that are true square.

  9. Excel Sum Function is truncating trailing zero's while pasting Sum from one cell to another

    Steps to reproduce the bug:


    1. Create Sum of 2 or more cells with numeric values - Ex. A4 = Sum(Sheet1!A2+Sheet2!A3)

    2. Copy the formula and paste it to other cells, so that it can take values from respective cells and create summation. Ex. Pasting Sum in B4, C4, D4...B12, C12, B15 etc.

    3. While pasting, its working correctly for B4(i.e. Sheet1!B2+Sheet2!B3), also for B15(i.e. Sheet1!B13+Sheet2!B14) where there the cell numbers are not ending with 0s.

    4. Its not working correctly for B12(it should be Sheet1!B10+Sheet2!B11) instead it is pasted as Sheet1!B1+Sheet2!B11. This is wrong. This is happening especially when we sum across sheets

  10. frustration

    Here is a idea, how about having two buttons at the top next to help button, one for novice, two for pro.

    So when i click on novice to ask how to start using excel, it actually starts with the basic. Have you noticed. Every day there is a update to make something better, but someone forgot there are people who really do not need things to change so rapidly. Who thought it was a good idea to get rid of the eraser.

    I am just starting to learn how to use excel, for a program (which might not be…

  11. find all

    there is no way to find a keyword in the data I have and it is imperative that I use the find all button. I have to sift thru 30,000 to 50,000 rows when I import my spread sheets so it gets to be time consuming when I need to consolidate my information.

  12. Columnas y filas sombreadas

    Me gustaría tener la opción de activar un sombreado de toda la fila o columna dependiendo de que celda se encuentre activa. Serían 4 opciones:
    1. Ver fila sombreada dependiendo de la celda activa
    2. Ver columna sombreada dependiendo de la celda activa
    3. Ver fila y columna sombreadas dependiendo de la celda activa
    4. Desactivar el sombreado de filas y columnas.

    Gracias

  15. Intellisense support for Range.Formula2, HasSpill, etc. properties

    The new Range.Formula2, HasSpill, SpillParent, and related properties introduced recently to Excel do not have Intellisense support in Visual Studio. As VSTO is still the best platform to build advanced-capability add-ins for Excel, exposing these properties via Intellisense is very desirable.

  16. Calibrate vertical scroll bar to display active rows in worksheet: click scroll bar for desired row.

    Calibrate vertical scroll bar to display active rows in worksheet. Always have the slider located exactly in the middle of the scroll bar. Instead of using the slider just click on the approximate row number you want above or below the slider. Once scroll bar is clicked slider will locate to selected approximate row and scroll bar will display active rows above the slider and the active rows below the slider. If implemented I personally will save lots of scrolling time in my worksheets that average over 8000 active rows.

  20. Needed to fix copy paste the tables from excel to outlook

    Copying from excel to Outlook (or any other app) should keep the content and format, borders, alignment of the cells. It takes so much time to adjust everything after pasting data into an Outlook e-mail, for example...
