  2. Allow access to the "Spreadsheet Inquire" add-in for Excel without having to upgrade an entire suite of applications to a business license.

    I have Microsoft 365 Family and I need the "Spreadsheet Inquire" add-in for Excel to troubleshoot a couple of very complex worksheets. The only way to get it is for me to upgrade my entire suite of Office applications to a business license with no other option to get it. A tool to help maintain and repair an Excel sheet should be included with the product, or AT THE VERY LEAST offered for a reasonable additional price.

  3. Convert all VBA references in twips directly to pixels

    Convert all VBA references to screen measurements to pixels. The twip is an arcane unit that has an actual defined distance. Monitors of the same native resolution come in a wide range of actual sizes.

    Twips are also too granular - I can't actually choose to position a window on a display in fractions of a pixel.

    It's very easy for a coder to find their monitor resolution, and also to think about other standard resolutions. It's a lot harder to first, figure out what the heck a twip is to begin with, and then it is unnecessarily unwieldy to…

  4. Range.Find should use cell values, as opposed to the displayed text.

    The following equation fails if you change the column width. See attached pictures.

    colNum = Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("E5:DA5").Find(-10).Column

    It should be finding that cell H5 has a value of -10.

  7. Provide a VBA-configurable "Display Name" for worksheets

    It appears the name of worksheets can not be altered in VBA. This is a restrictive when the workbook is locked for users etc.

    This means that worksheet names are fixed and cannot be named in accordance with user data.

    Example:
    Workbook 1: "List of Current Cities"
    Workbook 2-11: <City Name 1-10>

    If there are up to 10 Cities required, the workbooks have to be manually named (for display and for referencing in formula etc).

    When copying the spreadsheet (workbook) for another person say, those city name would have to be changed manually also.

    If a separate "Display Name" were…

  11. Please make Personal, in Office 365 more robust to prevent losing macro functions too frequently.

    I am only user of my Laptop. If I have opened several workbooks, and then apply macros and commands to manipulate the files - suddenly I've message that Personal can be open only for read for reason that it is used by myself. This happens to frequently. Please advise.
    Note: In office 365 Personal is located in Documents. Originally Personal was located in XLSTART folder?

  12. Money in Excel - update is cropping the merchant field, losing payee info - need to import ALL merchant data to better identify transactions

    For example - in Quicken and on my bank website a transaction shows up as

    "Ext Credit Card Debit KEYME 888-380-0394 8883800394 NY"

    but in the Money Addin it shows up only as

    "Ext Credit Card Debit"

    which makes it impossible to identify versus all the other "Ext Credit Card Debit" charges that are trimmed the same way. Including the entire field versus the first part would make it MUCH more usable.

  14. Add prediction level to regression analysis.

    Analysis ToolPak Regression tool should include Prediction Level and interval percent just like the Confidence Level and interval percent that already exists. This would be valuable for those that also want to see the prediction interval information for their data analysis.

  15. Remove duplicate transactions in Money in Excel

    Money in Excel is duplicating some, but not all, of my transactions from my credit card company. Every field is the same in both Excel rows, but there is only a single entry at my credit card company. There doesn't seem to be a reason why some are duped and some aren't.

    Since the de-dupe function is disabled, I'm not able to clean the data the way you normally would, so my accounts are way off.

  17. Intellisense support for Range.Formula2, HasSpill, etc. properties

    The new Range.Formula2, HasSpill, SpillParent, and related properties introduced recently to Excel do not have Intellisense support in Visual Studio. As VSTO is still the best platform to build advanced-capability add-ins for Excel, exposing these properties via Intellisense is very desirable.

  18. Update Visual Basic for Applications

    Visual Basic for Applications is still version 7.1 from 2012. It's high time that power user portion of the application received updates to the interface, IntelliSense, and features. That portion of the program needs to be aligned with the current features now available within the Microsoft Suite. It also needs a facelift to the Userforms palette. I suggest starting with Excel, where VBA is most widely used, then PowerPoint, Word, Outlook.

    Don't go destroying developer's programs, just add interoperability, functions, and facelift.
