    I consider "Excel Double-Click Autofill/Copy Cells" no longer working as a serious bug in Excel 2016. Please make it work like it did.

  3. PLEASE FIX Co-Authoring AND Autosave (Cannot merge)

    I've been experiencing A LOT of errors with autosave and co-authoring since I implemented it in my business 2 months ago. We have like 20 versions of the same document that we have to re-share everytime there is a merge problem. But today it was the straw that broke the camel's back... I can't stand this anymore.

    I've just experienced a merge issue with a file THAT IS NOT SHARED WITH ANYONE ELSE! Cannot merge changes with myself!!?? What is this Microsoft?? Why you don't let me see the merge conflict and let me choose what to keep?

    I'm moving…

  6. primero, quisiera que todo estuviera en español, ya que no se inglés.

    ¿por qué no se puede ver la vista previa de un documento, antes de abrirlo?
    sale un aviso de error en el controlador de vista previa de Microsoft Excel.
    El sistema operativo es Windows 10, y el Office es el 2019
    No puedo aceptar los términos del servicio, ya que como he dicho antes, NO SE INGLES.

  7. Stop excel rounding up calculations.

    Stop excel rounding up calculations. It totally defeats the point of excel which is to give me accurate calculations!
    When I try to change it, I get a warning message that it will permanently lose accuracy. What is accurate about a calculation that rounds up and is therefore WRONG? It's driving me crazy and I have sent in wrong timesheets which has cost me money. PLEASE STOP IT!!

  11. Create a wizard to reduce excel file size

    Create a wizard to reduce excel file size, to do the following:

    1. compress images

    2. uncheck "save source data with file" for all pivot tables

    3. delete unused rows and columns (sometimes there is something in the last row (number 1048576), or in the last column (XFD) that makes the file size extremely large for no reason, and it can happen in several worksheets in one workbook making a file size go over 30MB for no reason)

  14. More paper sizes disappeared

    In Excel 2016, we can custom our own paper size with “More Paper Sizes”, but this function disappeared in Excel 365. What’s going on!?

  17. Provide a reason for VBA halting when assigning a value to a cell

    For the past two days, I have been trying to figure out why VBA halts when I attempt to assign a value to a cell. VBA simply halts with no message what-so-ever. I have checked macro security, tried different approached and even different versions of Excel on different machines. Nothing works and no reason is given. Since I have a deadline, I need to drop trying this in VBA. I have posted the code to StackExchange. At a total and complete loss - I cannot get a simple assignment to a cell to actually work in VBA by any method…

  18. Use default user-agent when opening hyperlinks in protected mode.

    Hyperlinks in protected content appears to open with the user-agent set explicitly to MSIE7 even though it opens in your default browser causing issues for pages or web applications that explicitly limit older IE compatibility.

    It would be nice if it either did not explicitly set the user-agent or it used a newer compatibility mode than IE7.

  19. CONTAR.SI.CONJUNTO

    La función =CONTAR.SI.CONJUNTO (G3: G12; "<>" & ""; K3: K12; "<>" & "") considera “No vacías” las celdas sin valor pero que contienen una fórmula!
    Lo considero un error, dado que la fórmula =SI (H7 <> ""; "Valor"; "Si valor") si funciona correctamente, por lo que no es coherente que en unas fórmulas se aplique un criterio y en otras otro.
