  1. Money in Excel: Retrieve YTD transactions

    Retrieve more transactions from institutions. At the very least I need to get YTD transactions in order to use MiE for money management on an annual basis. As it is now, I will have to wait until 2022 before I am able to begin to compare year-to-year numbers for most of the first half of a year.

    In addition, it would be nice to get all the available transactions from each institution. Having data from last year would let me do year-to-year comparisons for some data.

  2. Make an integrated plot digitizer!

    See webPlotDigitizer.
    Have OCR auto-grab the x & y scale and dump data onto a new sheet or into an existing range. Use colors & shape detection to isolate different series. Can't believe this even has to be suggested, it's painfully obvious.

  3. Import stock quotes into Desktop just like Excel 365

    Why doesn't Desktop Excel have the same features as 365? We pay licensing fees and should get the same features! Importing stock quotes is long overdue!!

  5. Excel is getting worse for each version

    Excel is getting worse for each version. Before it was easy for me to import csv or skv files. Now you think that Excel is smarter than me and converts everything to skv. If I copy and paste from notepad it defaults to skv WHY, I HAVENT ASKED YOU TO CONVERT!!! I often want to treat data as CSV NOT SKV. Before I pasted the data in column A and then used TEXT to columns. Worked perfectly. Now everything gets corrupt because YOU have decided that YOU know whats best. I do this sometimes 20 times a day and half…

  6. Raise an error if Workbooks.Open text file exceeds row limit

    The debacle in the UK over lost Covid-19 results appears to have been a silent failure by Excel when the number of rows in a CSV/text file exceeded the sheet dimensions. This was in Excel 2003 (or earlier) but the same behaviour is in the latest Excel. Workbooks.Open "File.csv" does NOT raise an error if the file line count exceeds the sheet rows, which is inconsistent with the UI File>Open behaviour, which DOES show an error message. So make them consistent please. My analysis is at https://sysmod.wordpress.com/2020/10/13/uk-covid-19-track-trace-excel-snafu-uncontrolled-spreadsheets-lead-to-data-loss/

    A related post but not referring to raising an error is at https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/274580-excel-for-the-web/suggestions/10550871-csv-import-exceeding-row-limit

  10. Canadian Financial Institutions not included

    Using Microsoft Money, but I can't connect Financial Institutions from Canada, even very common ones such as TD or BMO. The links would be:
    https://www.td.com/ca/en/personal-banking/
    https://www1.bmo.com/onlinebanking/cgi-bin/netbnx/NBmain?product=5

    Hello,

    Thank you for your valuable feedback.

    Money in Excel currently doesn’t support non-US based financial institutions and we acknowledge the providing the functionality to add Canadian banks with Money in Excel would be a great feature. We will share your feedback to the apt team for review.

    Best,

    Vipin Nair

  14. How about delivering what you claim to support?

    I can't find a place to submit bugs but many stocks are missing, even though its a supported exchange in Excel. For example, the Singapore stock exchange (XSES) stocks are missing.

  17. It should be able to download data from bank accounts as far back as I select. Or at least to download statements and merge in.

    It should be able to download data from bank accounts as far back as I select. Or at least to download statements and merge in to Excel Money. Form what I see of it so far it is not even close to the old Microsoft Money hopefully there will be further updates or maybe a paid version.

  19. free Exchange Recovery Software

    There is lots of Exchange EDB to PST Recovery Tool in online market, but problem is that how we can select the best tool in various tools, it is very difficult to choose the right one, so as per my experience I would like to suggest a proficient third-party tool such as Enstella Exchange EDB Recovery Software. It helps to convert EDB to PST without any hurdle. The software is quite powerful to even repair corrupt exchange database and restore all EDB items back into the previous format without any data loss.

    Download freeware to click here-https://www.enstella.com/exchange-email-recovery.html
