  1. Improve the functionality of data tables:

    Improve the functionality of data tables:
    - so you can control which data tables need updating and others that don't need updating everytime you do a calculation. This would improve the performance of updating calculations where only certain aspects of the model have changed.
    - make it easier to run nested data tables

  4. Excel should allow to copy & paste the values even when there is filter

    Excel should allow to copy & paste the values even when there is filter that is used. This will make our work faster, as we need not un-filter the cells to copy and paste the values. Currently we can't make range of cells static by copy pasting when there is formula in those cells.

  5. Copy-pasting unsorted filtered data causes Excel to freeze for 2 minutes

    Copy-pasting the visible cells on a filtered selection of unsorted data causes Excel to freeze for 2 minutes before the data is pasted in a new sheet.
    However, when performing a sort first before applying the filter, the data is pasted instantaneously.

    We are running Microsoft Excel for Office 365 MSO (16.0.11328.20362) 32-bit / Click-to-run / semi-annual channel / Version 1902

    Steps to simulate the issue can be found in the attached PDF document.

  6. Return refresh auto filter old style

    Please return to old-style refresh autofilter method.

    On 2016 version, it is necessary to re-aply filter to refresh the results.
    In older version, after select an item in a column, others colums was already filtered.

  8. hyperlink sorting

    in a table when I sort, the hyperlinks are locked to a cell and does not sort with the text. so if I fill in a hyperlink in cell 134 and it sorts to cell 39, the hyperlink is still linked to cell 134 and not to cell 39. Is there a way to have the hyperlink be locked to the text and not the cell so when I sort it updates cell location with the text?

  9. Use AGGREGATE instead of SUBTOTAL for the total row of tables and for subtotals

    AGGREGATE is the successor of SUBTOTAL and all supported versions of Excel support it. There is no reason to use SUBTOTAL over AGGREGATE.

    Please use AGGREGATE instead of SUBTOTAL for the total row of tables and for subtotals (Data tab → Subtotal). Then deprecate SUBTOTAL by adding it to the list of Compatibility functions.

  11. Filter by Cell Color - ALL Colored Cells

    Right now, you can filter by a single color or no color, but you cannot filter for ALL colored cells. In my mind, it is the same concept as filtering out the blanks and leaving all cells with values. If you are looking at the picture I attached, I want to be able to see the peach and blue rows at the same time, without the white.

  12. Searching threads

    In older Excel version, one was able to search Notes, however, with the new version the comments can't be searched. This would be very helpful

  13. Return to original row in table after applying and clearing filter

    After applying a filter to a table and reviewing/editing the filtered data, clearing the filter should take you back to your starting row.

    At the moment it usually takes you back to the top of the table, though sometimes it seems to pick a random row. I'm normally working at the bottom of the table.

  14. Allow each column/row in a data table to use a different table style

    Table formatting looks beautiful, but I often have subsections within tables that I would like to have a different color. Please let us format each column/row in a table individually instead of just having first and second column/first and second row. I just want to use your beautiful formats to convey information more clearly and facilitate the use of complex tables.

    Thanks!

  15. Sorting in Romanian font is not working

    I have issues with sorting Romanian text in Excel, ă should be sorted as second after a base on the Romanian alphabet. This feature worked in the previous version of Office (Office 2013). This is affecting 10 of my devices right now.

  18. other languges then english

    I use hebrew as a second language. and when i try to auto fill, excel doesn't understand to auto fill hebrew alphabet, months, days of week etc. i guess that the same problem applies to users of other second languages.
    it would be a great idea for excel to improve that. especially for right to left languages where its very important
    thanks
    i hope you will improve it the fastest possible

  20. Excel tables should be separate UI elements from the tabbed spreadsheets

    I love the Excel Tables and I believe they should have been part of Excel from the beginning. Now that we have them, I am not happy with the way they are forced into the legacy GUI, namely that we still have monolithic single spreadsheet for a "canvas" that may contain more than one of these Excel Tables, but because these tables share the same spreadsheet grid, one always runs into undesirable side-effects, such as disabled Insert/Delete of spreadsheet rows and/or the "This won't work because it would move cells in a table on your worksheet" errors that should not…
