  2. Power Query Editor

    In the Power Query Editor, Transform tab, Any Column Group, there is a Move button. It allows you to move a selected column(s) to: Left, Right, To Beginning, To End.
    What if I want to move a column to the middle of my data and I have 30 columns.
    Can you add an option that says Move, Before Column and then you select the column you want to move before it.

  6. Insert Row Below

    As far as I can tell, there is no longer a way to insert rows below a selected row. Typically this does not cause issue, but when adding a row at the bottom of a already formatted document, the user has to reformat all outlines to include the new row.

  8. La validación de datos tiene deficiencias

    Deben corregir la validación de datos, ya que solo valida cuando se escribe sobre la celda, pero no hace la validación cuando pegan un valor desde el portapapeles, así que los capturistas pueden evadir la validación presionando copiar y después pegar, así pueden introducir cualquier valor invalido y la validación lo permite sin problemas.

  15. Allow default setting for insert or paste photo property such as "Move and Size with Cells"

    Every time need to change the property of photo will be a very painful job, it will be convenient if that can be done with default property settings

  16. Allow an easy way to shrink the sheet to the area with values

    Doing various actions in excel - for example, using the bar on top to paste a formula - will often increase the size of the sheet to way beyond what was intended. There should be a button that would shrink the sheet to the largest area with values (or formulas that refer to values) - or alternatively, specify an area to be preserved with the rest eliminated entirely, so that the space on disk is reasonable.

    What people do in practice is to copy the sheet area to a new sheet. This is a bit of a kludge.

  17. Select Objects - Objects on Chart Sheet

    Currently I can use the 'Select Objects' tool to select multiple Shape objects in a worksheet. However, if I try to use the same tool to select multiple Shape objects in a Chartsheet it just doesn't work

    As soon as I depress the mouse button to start selecting objects prior to dragging a selection area over the objects of interest it just selects the chart object precluding me from being able to drag a selection area over the Shape objects that I wish to select sitting on top of the chart object

    Furthermore; shapes objects I draw in a worksheet…

  18. Allow the anonymization of data in a column to a range of numbers. I have 1200 emails that need to be anonimized.

    Allow the anonymization of data in a column to a range of numbers. I have 1200 email addresses that I use to identify participants that need to be anonimized, while some of them are in there multiple times and need the same anonimized value for each entry.

  19. Deleting last worksheet in a workbook

    When you try to delete the last worksheet in a workbook, it is normally not allowed.

    How about having Excel to reset the sheet object counter and create Sheet1 automatically when the last worksheet is deleted in the workbook? It would be easier to reset a workbook without creating a new one and overwriting the existing workbook to start a brand new working environment,
