  1. AUTOMATICALLY COPYING DATA FROM A CELL OF ONE SHEET TO A CELL OF ANOTHER SHEET

    Consider i am having a value written in a cell H6 of sheet 1

    It should be linked to a C8 cell of sheet 2

    So if i change the value of one cell other should automatically be changed

  2. DOUBLE SERIES OF TABS.

    Why not have vertical tabs as well? For each sheet on the lower part of the screen, there would be several "sub-sheets" available on the vertical left of the screen.
    This exists already more or less in OneNote and is very useful to locate items and retrieve them.

  3. Changeing the password in a protected Document.

    When I password protect a document, I can't change that password. I have a document that I think the password has been compromised and I can't change the it. If it is possible to change it, someone let me know how. the password has been in place for many years.

  4. QAT

    Please provide all of the customizations for the Quick Access Toolbar that has been available before. Some commands have been lost in 2016, for example the Save As command.

  7. Dont show names/tables from hidden sheets

    I have a lot of tables in hidden sheets to configure workbook.The user dont need to know about this tables, but they can see in 'name box'.

    Please, don't show hidden tables (and names) from hidden sheets, Also, it is useless, click in names does nothing.

  8. Move or Copy

    It would be great if the option with Move or Copy of placing the new sheet be at the end was listed both at the top and the bottom of the dialog box. Saves having to scroll all the way through the list of tabs.

    The same idea, but on Filters. Having the Blanks check box located at the top of the page would be beneficial for when you have more than 11 items in the list.

    thank you

  9. pivot table: go back to parent cell by double clicking the cell

    I've got a huge amount of data to go through and find the source cell as there are many duplicates. So is there a way to find the source cell of a selected data in the pivot table.

    Is there any way we could hyperlink the pivot table so that if we ctrl+click or double click, it could take us back to the parent cell?

  10. Should be easy to freeze top row AND AND AND first column or whatever row and column needed like in previous versions.

    One says it's supported, but, well, doesn't seem so. Certainly not easy, as when you freeze the column, it unfreezes the row you just froze.. why??

  12. Alternative to hiding rows/columns

    I've just finished delivering a foundation excel course, one of the delegates asked is there a function whereby you pick the columns or rows that you want to see as against the negative of hiding the elements.

    With everyone disappearing under columns of data, a positive approach could be a valid alternative.

    Please consider.

  13. Tabs

    Please can you add a tab system for open workbooks as per the add in Kutools supply - working with multiple workbooks is made so much easier - if Kutools can design an add in then I presume that it is an easy add in function to create

  15. The name of the file should appear at the top of page before the file is saved

    A file name should appear when clicking Ctl-S and we should be able to edit the file name/directory before it saves it to the default.

  17. I would like to be able to protect a sheet in a workbook that has grouping on it and still allow the user to use the grouping option.

    Please update the worksheet protection option so that we can allow the user to use the grouping option. I have set up a workbook that has many locked cells and formulas and I don't want the user to overwrite those. But it is a large file that has grouping on both columns and rows. I want the user to be able to see the info at both a high and detail level. I know there will be issues giving this work book to users without protection on that sheet. Thanks

  18. Side By Side Snap

    Implement the Windows 7 Snap concept within Excel itself to allow for quicker sizing and side by side comparison of two spreadsheets. Add corner snap feature to allow up to four same sized spreadsheets in one viewer.

  19. Include in tab Data, group Sort and filter, access to delete button

    Include in tab Data, group Sort and filter, direct access to delete button, because, as usual, when you filter you want to delete.
