  1. Bug su formula

    Salve ,
    Vorrei portare all'attenzione un problema che si trova su Excel 2013 e successive ma pienamente funzionate sulla versione 2007 della formula per visualizzare il giorno della settimana . =TESTO(AX,"ggg") .
    Se digitiamo la formula come descritto la cella rimarrà vuota .
    Se invece modifichiamo la formula con =TESTO(Ax,"ddd") ecco che appare il risultato , per cui il giorno della settimana ma scritto in Ingese.
    Supporto mi dice che la funzionalità è obsoleta però in Inglese funziona.
    Chi mi ripaga il tempo che dovrei perdere per modificare tutte le formule concatenate di 4 anni di dati????
    Credo che gli…

  2. Add shift cells right when deleting cell(s)

    I work a lot on evaluating sales performance.. some items have been there for the whole year, some not. if this option is available, it eases the process so all the ending year figures and the latest figures (for items < 1 year) will fall on the same column

  4. I would like to be able to sort protected cells

    I have set up a key control system for schools. There are cells that are protected that teachers can't change and cells that are not protected that they can. However, they need to be able to sort the teachers name alphabetically for key issue and turn in. Even though I have those cells are editable, because I have protected cells within it, I can't sort.

  5. Directions on how to remove manual line breaks in cell to add additional text.

    Directions on how to remove a manual line break in cell/add text to existing text. I removed all the line breaks to make the information become one sentence in the cell.

    When I cut and/or copy information from another cell to add to the sentence in the current cell it does not permit me to do this.

    I need to sort a merged doc, which the system will not let me do. I un-merged & removed wrap text in the entire 200 line document. I need to take text from one cell and combine it with existing text. (In the…

  6. Search as you type for Data Validation Drop Down List like Excel for Web & Gsheet.

    I cant believe that such hard working Excel Team hasn't improved this feature in excel. I checked excel online version, it has this feature but to my surprise it only searches the list if first word found in list.

    Say if you are searching for "Will Smith",

    If you type "will" it will show you the match in dropdown.

    But,

    If you type "smi" it will NOT show anything from the list.

    I mean this is really unbelievable. Years of development and still we are looking for ease of entering data. This should be there from the very start.

    I…

  12. Copy Sheet option for more than one

    From the current excel, we can't copy more than one sheet. Currently we have to do one by one or VB script to do that. Please add copy sheet option with the user input numbers & sheet format option (which formatted sheet should we want to copy and create multiple times).
    And Add sheet option, please include the same.

  13. Añadir a F4 un 4º comportamiento como "celda"#

    Añadir 4º comportamiento a F4=> A1# para permitir funcionalidad en los nuevos Rangos/Matrices dinámicas.
    En su defecto añadir comportamiento a F4 mediante [Shift+F4], que no se está usando ahora.
    El comportamiento actual de F4 es:
    0 => …… A1 => [Shift+F4] A1#
    1 => [F4] $A$1 => [Shift+F4] $A$1#
    2 => [F4] A$1 => [Shift+F4] A$1#
    3 => [F4] $A1 => [Shift+F4] $A1#
    4 => [F4] A1 => [Shift+F4] A1#
    5 => [F4] A1#

  14. Change "Whole number" to "Integer" in the Data Validation window

    In the Data Validation window, please change the "Whole number" option to "Integer", since this option accepts negative numbers as well. "Whole number" is an ambiguous term that can mean all integers, only the integers ≥ 0, or only the integers ≥ 1. "Integer" is unambiguous and is shorter than "whole number".

  16. "Go to special" - select every nth row/column

    As some data sets may have dimensional data with 2 or more rows/columns of information for each major row/column, it would be handy for quick editing to be able to select every nth row or column for extracting or removing irrelevant information.

    E.G. I have a table with Two columns of information for each quarterly period - the first of which is sales data (that I need to use) and the second column is just made up of indicators to footnotes (that I don't need and want to remove. This would also be practical for tables with blank rows/columns between…

  17. Update Powerpoint links from Excel files more efficiently

    Team,

    I am sure I am not the only one but I use heavily linking excel files to PPT slides in order to avoid copying and pasting each time there is an update to the numbers, charts etc. This obviously saves time and keeps contents accurate real time.

    One of the major inconvenience is when I need to update an excel work book with different tab or range, I can't do that on the PPT linking section easily. Basically you need to recopy and paste the new section into slides again. Also, if you are saving presentations each month to…

  18. Version history of a file should be saved without the need of

    Version history of a file should be saved without the need of exit the file, each time you want to keep a separate version.

    File history without needing to save several versions as 1, 2 _3 or whatever, is great. However, to make the versions "stick" or be saved, without being overrun by the next "ctrl+S", we need to exit the file and open it again. (I am NOT in favour of aout-save, that saves without my control, so I personally have turned of that function.

    It would be nice if the separate versions were saved just by "ctrl+S", not…
