  1. Option/Setting to Prevent Accidentally Attach Excel File to Email

    We need a setting/option in Excel File to disable attach/share. This setting is needed, especially for the sensitive file which is not to be shared. This can prevent someone accidentally attach it to Email and send it out by email.

  2. Grabbing

    How about giving us space at the top of the window, where the title bar is, to grab and move the window without having to do something else or resize and then move! I would think this was a no-brainer, but you keep putting **** up there so there's no real estate to actually grab.

  5. Option to automatically copy sheet name to the clipboard when sheet is selected.

    If you could instruct excel to copy the sheet name to the clipboard when sheet is selected the name could then readily be pasted into other applications. In my case I have a sheet for each part # that I copy and paste into an mrp application so i am looking at information in two places about the the same part.

  6. MICROSOFT ONEDRIVE FAILING TO SYNC PROPERLY AFTER OFFLINE WORK

    On october 2019 I was working offline on my Microsoft Surface Go (Windows 10 up to date) on an excel, saved it, and then when I got back online I got a message saying that the documents couldn't be merged, and when I clicked on "Resolve" and my offline work disappeared completely, without giving me any options. The work I did offline was not present in the document versions, and not even an informatic expert could recover it. I moved my files out of One Drive and back to google drive because I cannot risk that to happen again. Please,…

  7. Office Apps Menu Header Ribbon

    in the latest office update, the main menu header ribbon also has changed. The earlier version was quite compact and we used to get more real estate on the screen for our work / data.
    also with new menu option of editing, it has increased the no. of clicks for basic summation / filter options. Earlier it was more convenient.

  8. select date for open/close stock

    You should be able to pick dates when selecting stock info.

    E.g set the date as 06/11/2019 to get XNAS:MSFT open price on that day.

  10. Data Validation advanced features

    Please add a more advanced feature for data validation in a drop down menu in a column to allow the user of large files to be able to choose more than one option within the same cell and placing the choices as a list within the same cell.

    e.g. If I want to create a list of text (abc, def, ghi, jkl, mno, .....) I want to be able to create a list that will be placed as follows:


    1. abc

    2. def

    3. ghi

    4. jkl ......

    furthermore, to be able to number that list.

  12. Make this FREE, like it use to be.

    This and 'WORD', use to be free. What a shame we have to now pay $100.00 a year to use something that comes with a new computer. Please make this free again, right now it is a major headache. Im sure Microsoft has made enough money by now, no need to charge for Excell and Office.

  14. In "Export", I'd like recommend a user be able to export dates and data to their calendar.

    Allow the transfer of dates and data to the Outlook calendar to expand the capabilities of Excel to take on a mini-Project Manager ability, or other data scheduler based on calculations made with dates and data within a spreadsheet/workbook.

  16. Saving should not block view of the spreadsheet

    When saving an Excel file in Windows 10 it brings up a window which completely blocks the view of the spreadsheet being saved. When click Browse it brings up a smaller save dialog box (good) but the first window is still blocking the entire spreadsheet. When deciding on and entering a name for the spreadsheet its helpful to see the spreadsheet contents and any title(s) entered in the spreadsheet cells.
    I tried minimizing the initial save screen but it also minimizes the worksheet, so still can't see it.
    I'm not sure what version of Excel I'm using because its hidden…

  18. I use 2 monitors to avoid printing, could there be a ruler that I can put on top of my data to help me follow along?

    It would help in editing and avoid printing if we could have a ruler that would go over various apps, like a PDF, Excel or Word.

  19. Discrepancy in Date and Day for some of the Dates in Excel

    Dates in Excel starting from January 01, 1900 to February 28, 1900 don't give corresponding accurate Days as that in actual Gregorian Calendar, such as:

    January 01, 1900 (as per Excel) = Sunday
    January 01, 1900 (as per Gregorian Calendar) = Monday

    Comprehensive details are provided in attached file.

  20. Provide a menu item to "Hide all notes"

    I inadvertently clicked "Show all notes". I had to hide them all individually - on a multi tabbed workbook with over 100 notes. A "Hide all notes" menu item would really help. I did look at multiple forums but couldn't find a way to do that.
