  7. Imprecise clicking and selection with mouse cursor

    For several months, and several versions, I have noticed a very persistent bug in Excel in Office 365. As of the current version, It is happening on every excel file, regardless of file size, number of sheets etc.

    Let's say that I have a brand new workbook open. The number of rows visible on the page is 28 and the number of columns visible is 23 (up to column W). Let's call this "Initial Page View". If I start clicking with the mouse, I can select cells in the range from A1:W28. Now let's say I have scrolled down with…

  12. Breaking change in Selection.Group

    Hi,

    with the last update as of 08/12/2019 you apparently rolled out a breaking change in the naming convention of generated group fields in pivot tables.

    Here a macro fragment that throws now an exception 1004, "Unable to get the PivotFields property of the PivotTable class"

    ActiveWorkbook.RefreshAll

    'regroup date values (first of this month to first of next month, as the report is per yesterday, take always -1 day)
    Range("A4").Select
    Selection.Group _
    Start:=CLng(DateSerial(Year(Date - 1), Month(Date - 1), 1)), _
    End:=CLng(DateSerial(Year(Date - 1), Month(Date - 1) + 1, 1)), _
    Periods:=Array(False, True, True, True, True, False, True)
    Range("A4").Select
    '20190812: Microsoft…

  14. conditional formats

    i am having an issue with conditional formatting now that i have offices 365. As a simple example format cell A1 fill red.
    Now add conditional formatting to cell A1.. =NOT(ISBLANK(B1)) with format fill no color.
    Enter any value into B1 and cell A1 fill turns to no color as expected.
    Now scroll down so A1 is off screen, then scroll back to A1, and A1 has reverted to red fill again for me.
    It remains red until I force a change by re-entering a value into B1.
    Please tell me if this is behaviour that everyone experiences??
    Please tell…

  16. Do not cancel old possibilities

    In any cell of Excel 1995, 2003, 2007:
    = 431+"explanation 1"-1+"explanation 2"
    ENTER
    = 430
    In Office 365 (Excel 2016):
    Pressing ENTER results in #VALUE!
    Althought I sill can use my old spreadsheets I cannot create new ones using this now considered outdate possibility and this is a very serious limitation in my view.

  17. There isn't a single human being on this planet that wants to open a CSV file in Excel and have the long numeric values converted to stupid

    There isn't a single human being on this planet that wants to open a CSV file in Excel and have the long numeric values converted to stupid scientific notation by default.

    99.999% of the human population are not "scientists". And 99% of the scientists don't want long numeric values converted to scientific notation either.

    Stop it. This is dumb.

    Just display the number as, gee here's a though, a ******* number.

  19. Hi Their

    I use Microsoft Office 365 and for windows 10 x64 which is lasted update from my company side. so the most of problem when I use Microsoft excel in my laptop is that once I open excel file for edit my information and use touchpad or mouse to score task bar in excel file, the application will be hang state.

    the work around from my side must be close the application and re-open it again and then use the cursor arrow key board to move pointer instead.

    so on this problem, that is not comfortable to use Microsoft for me

  20. Provide simple VBA means for getting the Module Name, Procedure Name and Line Number.

    After Googling the three, i suppose Module name might be presently available, but i am amazed at how many times people have looked for these three options over the past couple decades, yet this group functionality has not been provided. I certainly do not know the complexity of that which we seek, so if it is too hard for Microsoft programmers to do, please advise so all of us wishing to have these three, mainly for error/bug reporting and handling, can understand why years of requests have been apparently ignored, which i would like to believe is not the case.
