  4. Why IOS "Numbers" removes password protection from password protected MS Excel spreadsheet?

    My operating system is Windows 10 Pro and I use Excel 2010 in my desktop.

    I created a timesheet using formulas and protected it with a password, allowing users to insert details in the desired cells only, so that they fill up the basic details only like date, start time, finish time and break and the set formulas do the calculation by itself.

    However, most of the users have IOS either they use their mobile or Macbook to fill up the data in the aforementioned timesheet and they don't have MS Office. The problem is when they run this timesheet…

  7. Data validation with a list using a named range doesn't work properly

    With data validation using a list, where the source list is a named range.
    If you leave the "Ignore if blank" parameter it won't block entries that aren't from the list; if you uncheck "ignore if blank" it does block wrong entries but it also displays any blank cell as an invalid entry, even if there are blank cells in the named range.

  11. drop down list in data filter

    when we select the drop down list for any column, it has to be expanded each time to see the values available. while it may not be feasible to accommodate all values vertically, but the horizontal expansion should not be required. The list should become wider depending on the cell width range

  12. find and replace

    When you find a text or number, the cell should get highlighted with color yellow or user choice of color to attract attention to the cell. At present, one has to search for the cursor. Thanks!

    Similarly, the replace button should get highlighted if used.

  13. Do not delete working files when Excel crashes.

    Excel stopped responding. Offered to recover. I said sure. It took several minutes but it opened a blank workbook. The file I was working with disappeared - was erased from my system.
    I was saving my work every hour. Now I have nothing left.

  14. Exciting Examples Of Creating An Artist Wiki Page

    I have found recently and researched Wikipedia's formation for both artists and entertainers. That is why I did some research and told other people about it. Others have offered me different advice about how to create a Wiki page, but my main support was to create Wikipedia itself. On Wikipedia, you can read extensive details about how to create the artist's Wikipedia profile. Here, you can find an appropriate prototype, which can be used as a helpful and full guide for the creation of a website. What other good ways can you find in creating a Wikipedia article for artists?

  19. Copy Workbook Prevention

    If I pass my excel workbook to an individual, he / she will have the ability to duplicate the file and pass on to others leaving multiple uncontrolled copies.

    Could the Save As and Copy File for the excel workbook be somehow disabled or password restricted. So only the author has the ability to distribute the file.

    Obviously the owner would be able to make multiple copies

  20. Bring back ability to email one sheet as body of an email, instead of entire workbook. This was an option in previous excel years.

    In previous versions of excel, you could choose to email the current sheet you were using as the body of the email. This new excel in Office 365 only allows you to send the entire workbook, which I don't need. I only need to send 2 pages. Now I am required to save as a PDF to send the documents. Then I need to delete the PDF's since I don't need the copies. This is causing extra work.
