  1. 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.

  5. MS Office 365 ProPlus, Excel / Access date recognition bug

    MS Office 365 ProPlus, Excel Version 1808, Build 10730.20280

    What I did:
    1. Copy column B to C
    2. Replace "2018" with "2019" in column C

    What is the result:
    - German month names are recognized
    - English month names only recognized for Apr, Aug, Sep, Nov

    What I would expect:
    - English month names are recognized as well

    Same result within MS Access

  9. Here's an Idea for the Clipboard problem in Excel 2016

    Post on Microsoft Community Answers - "When Excel shows this dialog after a copy (CTRL+C) action, it means that another app has a lock on the system clipboard. In this situation you can still paste within Excel. However you cannot paste to another app like Word or Outlook which uses the clipboard.

    Last year we made some improvements to Office365 users so that this error message only shows once per Excel instance. This is based on customer feedback - the design change prevents it popping up multiple successive times when the clipboard is locked. We have also considered never showing…

  11. Excel wont open a second file while one file is opened!

    Suggestions from the web didn't work. It seems the problem started a few years ago, and it is not yet solved.

  12. Recent file list timestamp isn't updated (bug)

    1. Sometimes, the Recent File List isn't updated.
    2. There should be a header to indicate "Last Modified" in the Recent File List.

    STEPS TO RECREATE ITEM 1:
    A. At the end of the workday, save your file, but leave it open.
    B. Return the next day, and save the file again.
    C. Exit Excel & reboot computer.
    D. Open Excel after reboot, and navigate to File --> Open and find the file you saved, and the date will be from the day prior.

  13. Undo bug when multiple worksheets are selected

    Cross sheet formulas break when undoing changes such as inserting rows, but only if single sheets are selected. See attached file for summary:

    To replicate the error
    1. Select sheets A and B
    2. Add a row above row 4
    As a result the formula in Sum!B4 changes from "=SUM(A:B!B4)" to "=SUM(A:B!B5)"
    3. Select the sum sheet
    4. Undo the row addition (Cntr+Z)
    As a result the value in A and B is listed in row 4
    But the formula in Sum!B4 has not changed and is still "=SUM(A:B!B5)" giving a wrong result

  20. BLOQUEO DEL EXCEL

    Buenos días,

    Este error de de todas las versiones de Excel y es constante y me desespera porque trabajo mucho con el Excel, cuando estoy realizando algún trabajo, y al igual los usuarios encuentran el problema y me preguntan que sucede y solo puedo decirles "Es un error del Excel", pero pienso que ya deben haberlo detectado y además corregido para la versión 2019, pero sigue igual.
