  1. [BUG] Can not have "0" as the correct result during floating point number adding up

    [BUG]
    Excel, version 2016, version 97, or maybe all versions
    Tested with different documents at different machines.

    In the following calculations:
    R1C1= -1
    R2C1= R[-1]C+0.1
    R3C1= R[-1]C+0.1
    ...

    When it goes to R11C1, which should have "0" as result, the calculation gets one very small value, e.g. -1.4E-16.

    If the R1C1= -2, when it goes to R21C1, which should have 0, but the calculation gets another very small negative value, e.g. 6.38E-16.

    Such kind of case can be found quite a lot. I guess when the added value can not be expressed as a sum of 0.5^N (N is positive…

    • Fix inlined member calls, on user objects on 64-bit VBA

      In 64-bit VBA hosts, inlined member calls on user objects don't work like on 32-bit VBA hosts.

      Given a UserClass with a getter/setter and a Class_Terminate handler (even it is empty).
      And in a TestModule a factory procedure returning an instance of this class and also setting the setter.

      When I now use this procedure and inline check the value of the getter like in the following sample, it results in a different behaviour compared to 32-bit VBA:

      If CreateUserClass(True).TheValue Then

      Please take a look in the attached text file for a complete sample.

      Regards,
      Axel

        • Fix the no more fonts can be added problem

          I get "no more fonts can be added" even when I just look at a formula, it's driving me mad. Seems to be a design problem?

          • Consistent approach to removing duplicates and expanding selection

            The feature of removing duplicates has three different paths -

            Select a cell - automatically selects the data set

            Select a row - prompts you to expand selection

            Select a column (or columns) - holds selection with no prompt to expand

            CLICK Remove Duplicates

            Each version has a different result - they should all either select the entire data set - or prompt you to expand the data selection

            One is often selecting columns and may not realize the entire data set was not considered for a removing duplicates leading to massive data issues in mailing lists.

              • Help

                Make it so that when I have a text box with words that are shown, they actually print. Its unfortunate that I have a text box sized perfectly, but when I print it omits some of the text in the shape.

                Also, I wish that when my screen shows that my cells are .25 inches, they actually size to .25 inches. Not cool

                It is impossible to have two borders of .5 inches plus 41 cells of .25 inches each - that adds to 11.25 and the sheet alone is 11 inches but somehow my Excel does this - and…

                    • File location update

                      Unlike MS Word which updates the name and file location as soon as they are changed, MS Excel does not. This can be very confusing because a change you make appears to have not been made. Flipping to another worksheet and then returning will force the update, but it should be automatic, just like in Word.

                              • If a cell string contains "~", MATCH function cannot find the cell.

                                If a cell string contains "~", MATCH function cannot find the cell. If a lookup value contains "~", MATCH ignores it. It is the only char with such a behavior, and it's look like an error. Didn't find any documentation regarding that.

                                      add cells to table
                                      add new formula for finding subfolders - OK
                                      add custom Module with Function
                                      add formula
                                      takes awhile
                                      add a 2nd formula - blank Excel screen while updating
                                      edit a cell NOT in table
                                      Windows hangs until Excel has checked/recalculated every cell in the table. Can't even right click on Taskbar.

                                      • The MS Excel 365 is horrible.

                                        The MS Excel 365 is horrible.
                                        Issue 1: It gives errors when two users has opened the same excel sheet. Even after one user closes the sheet, MS excel gives network error saying unable to connect. See error attached.

                                        Issue 2: When one unmerges and remerges cell, the whole sheet formatting becomes wrong. The issue can only be fixed by changing the height of one row and bringing it back to original.

                                        Please fix issues.

                                        • Make it so that when I enter an "Alt Code" character, in text it puts it where I want it, not at the start of the text!
