  1. Kill nested IFs

    What about a function like =ELSEIF([if1]; [then1]; [elseif2]; [then2]; [elseif3]; [then3]; ...)

      Give our new IFS and SWITCH functions a go – they are exactly what you’re looking for.

      Cheers,

    • Please add MAXIF and MINIF

      It would just be so useful to have this. Thanks!

        Hello all,

        Just wanted to let you know that we’ve released MAXIFS and MINIFS to Excel as part of Office 365. If you’re a subscriber you should already have (or see soon) these functions in your arsenal.

        Cheers,
        Dan [MS]

        Hi there,

        Great news – we’re working on this! Actually, we’re working on MAXIFS and MINIFS – even better :-)

        Cheers,

        • Absolute Reference Shortcut

          Really simple. Pretty much in all my data analysis involves absolute references and relative references. For a formula I enter, I have to go through and manually type in the $ symbols to lock those references, which can be cumbersome when I have 15 or so references to take care of. What I suggest is a shortcut key e.g. ctrl + click/alt + click where by clicking the cell in the formula using this combination will convert it to an absolute reference.

            Great news, we have this in Excel already. as you are authoring a formula, when you select a cell/range, you can press F4 to toggle the “absolute-ness” of the reference.

          • Improve the Concatenate Function

            Make Concatenate to Work with Range of Cells / Arrays rather than 1 cell separated by Comas

            =CONCATENATE(Array,Seperator)
            The Array to Accept A1:A10 or A1:D1 or {"Abb","Areva","BHEL"} or {"ABB";"Areva";"BHEL}
