  1. date format

    I am in a region where the date format used here is DD/MM/YY, and I can set it accordingly. However when I type in the date it goes to US format. For example, I want to input 01 July 2003 as 01/07/03, but it automatically turn it into 07/01/03

  6. Should introduce facility of a range like ($A$5:$A) in function, just like Google Sheets.

    Should introduce the facility of giving a range in function (for example $A$5:$A) just like Google Sheets. Array formula will automatically expand to the desired number of rows.

  8. Suggestion for Quick Button Option with bigger, unique and colorful icons in two or three rows below the minimized ribbon.

    Suggestion for Quick Button Option with bigger, unique and colorful icons in two or three rows below the minimized ribbon.

    Hi,
    The existing quick access tool bar consist of a single row of small icons that is very close to each other. The user needs to be careful to select the right button by slowing down the mouse movement. This tedious and affect work productivity. Some icons consist of round shape with green filling, even though functions are different. Example hide column and auto fit column width. Only the regular user can identify them quickly by its position at the…

  9. Excel for Money - Enable sorting for columns on transactions tab

    The fields on the transactions tab allow filtering but not SORTING of transactions. Allowing them to be sorted by any of the various fields (amount, account, institution, etc.) would be very helpful.

  10. Allow Change/Edit/Rename Sheet Name

    Problem: If I copy the contents of an Excel Document to create another for editing, the Sheet Name remains as that of the original document, whereas it should default to the new document. Furthermore, this appears to prevent editing to correct this.

  11. Add new Function called Extract

    Hello,
    My suggestion is to add a Function called "Extract" which can address many kinds of extractions.
    Suggested formula will extract Text between nth occurrences of c1 and c2 respectively.

    =Extract(A1,c1,c2,n1,n2,D)
    A1 = Cell containing Text.
    c1 = Character1
    c2 = Character2
    n1 = Nth Number of occurrence of the Character1
    n2 = Nth Number of occurrence of the Character2.
    D = Direction. R is Right to Left. L or Unspecified is Left to Right.

    Text in A1 = “This is a good [or Better] idea; [Best] in-fact!”

    Formula: =Extract(A1,"[","]",1,1)
    Result: or Better
    Discription: Extracted text from 1st bracket. That…

  15. sheet view

    Can sheet view be implemented in the desktop app like it has been in excel online to aid with coauthoring when you need to filter results. Ideally this would be expanded to a sheet view where all view changes i.e. to column and rows are only shown on your version of excel when you set the option which you can then save

  19. Dialogue box for functions and equations

    Instead of writing the function in an Excel cell, then we use abbreviations ctrl + G & ctrl + D
