  1. Error in the translation of the function description "PROCURAR" (MS Excel Pt-Br)

    On the Brazilian Portuguese version of Microsoft Excel (desktop and online versions), the "PROCURAR" function has a translation error on its description.

    The "PROCURAR" function description text uses the word "LOCALIZAR" instead of the word "PROCURAR", causing an error because "LOCALIZAR" is also another function.

    The description states that "LOCALIZAR" is case sensitive. The "LOCALIZAR" function makes no distinction. The more adequate use on this case would be: "PROCURAR" is case sensitive.

    In the case of Excel 2019 store app version, if you click the link of the CSV file on the Internet in the browser, the contents of the CSV file will be displayed as text on the browser.
    If you reinstall the previous Excel or desktop version, the CSV file will open normally in Excel, but please fix the bug so that the store application version of Excel 2019 will also open in Excel as well.

    タイトル(日本語):Excel 2019 のストアアプリ版の場合、インターネット上のCSVファイルのリンクをブラウザでクリックするとCSVファイルの内容がブラウザ上にテキストとして表示されてしまう不具合を修正して欲しい。

    本文(日本語):Excel 2019 のストアアプリ版の場合、インターネット上のCSVファイルのリンクをブラウザでクリックするとCSVファイルの内容がブラウザ上にテキストとして表示されてしまいます。
    以前のExcel、もしくは、デスクトップ版を再インストールすればCSVファイルが正常にExcelで開かれますが、Excel 2019 のストアアプリ版でも同様にExcelで開くよう不具合を修正して欲しい。

  3. Ability to Disable Dynamic Array Functionality

    We would like the ability to disable the recently added Dynamic Array Functionality.
    According to our in-house testing, Office 365 Version 1910 (Build 12130.20272) is the first build to include the Dynamic Array functionality. This new 'feature' basically broke the way our business has managed and shared large spreadsheets made up of calculations consisting of figures from various external links.

    For example… In Excel versions prior to the build listed above, when a user with access to the linked data sources opens one of these spreadsheets, the calculations will update including data from the external links. Once said spreadsheet has…

  5. Add a floating totals row to dynamic arrays

    When using dynamic arrays, it would be nice to have the option of a floating totals row at the bottom of the dynamic spill range.

  6. Why don't you respond to complaints?

    Why don't you respond when complaints are made? Why don't you follow industry best practice and
    - send a response with a complaint number and date that could be followed up
    - include the text of the complaint so that it's not lost
    - commit to addressing the problem within a fixed period.
    Many if not most of us are paying a subscription for Office as a service, and - as a customer service - it's ****. It's time for Microsoft to wake up to what customer service is all about.

  7. Disable the Clipboard Warning when you exit Excel - This is really annoying

    This clipboard warning is only rarely relevant and incredibly annoying. Please add a clipboard option to disable the clipboard warning when you close a file.

    I have been using Excel every day for decades and never once needed this warning. It is very annoying when you are trying to move through files quickly.

  9. Find links

    It's often VERY difficult to find the links indicated by Edit Links in the Data Tab. Obviously, Excel is aware of the links, but the user is not aware of where they are. Have a feature be able to tell the user precisely where those links are, be they in cells, buttons, hyperlnks, shapes, whatever.

  11. Pre-release new versions of VBA

    I have been having a lot of trouble with changes that are being made in Visual Basic by people who are obviously not VBA users themselves.

    I am a developer and keep historical versions of the programs I am working on, and I'm tripping all over changes that are being made. And it's particularly irksome that I have go back and figure out why something isn’t working and then re-debug code that's that has been working for years..

    Another thing I have a problem with is recent changes in the way VBA itself works. It use to be than when…

  16. Scroll lock shortcut should be able to turn it on AND off

    For many laptops that don't have a specific scroll lock key, scroll lock can be turned on by fn+C (which is typically dangerously close to probably the most common shortcut used in excel - ctrl+C). If scroll lock becomes turned on (whether on purpose or on accident), a user then has to open their on-screen keyboard which will have a scroll-lock key and turn it off from there. This is unnecessarily cumbersome and poses a big problem when the on-screen keyboard isn't fully functioning.

    I don't see a reason why the same short cut to turn on scroll lock can't…

  20. restore previous versions

    excel or all microsoft applications should store previous saved documents so you can recover an older version thats been saved previously, I had a scenario where I edited a spreadsheet, saved and closed, the following day I found I had made many errors and was unable to undo and did not have any old documents saved, there should be an option to select which saved file you desire with a time and date stamp
