  1. Change the default method for data pasted from Access so that text isn't formatted to wrap.

    Text in data pasted from Access always formats as wrapped. Make the default to be not wrapped, or provide an option to specify whether the text should be wrapped or not.

  2. Feasibility to query Google Calendar to Excel

    Many times, I have to see my calendar to calculate hours that I spent for meetings. It is kind of monotonous work that a professional has to spend specially in "productivity" calculation. If Excel can built a query in Power Query tool or import from data sources which gives an option to export data from Google Calendar or any other calendar and we can built other formulas to calculate productivity efficiently.

  3. creating Layout of directory in excelsheet directly from your local hard drive

    if it was possible that just with one click, we can create a Tree Grid Map of directory, which will give option of inducing sub folders & files with option of inserting hyperlink.

    So that i don't have to open 7-8 sub folders before opening my files.

    (nothing against VBA, its a great tool) if i create a directory using VBA it is not very beautiful..... i wish i could see small folders with little Expansion buttons it would be very great.

  4. Mirroring Worksheets

    Sometimes I want to present some information to a client, but not all. Linking doesn't always work due to the possibility of inserting new columns or rows into the data. I would like to clone a worksheet and designate the original as the master worksheet. In the clone, I'd like to change formatting, hide cells, or add information, while mirroring the master data so I can keep my master data and still generate reports for others from the clone.

  5. Speed up xml import

    Importing data from xml file into a Listobject (Table) is very slow. FIle containing 100.000 rows runs 10 minutes. Importing the same data from txt runs 5 secs.

  6. Excel 2016 Desktop Power Query takes ages to refresh from Azure SQL Database. Make refresh faster.

    In Excel 2016 Desktop, it takes very long time for Query to refresh from Azure SQL Database (such as Access Web Apps database). Even when the whole Query is connecting to a single small table, refresh takes + 5 minutes sometimes. This Refresh should be made faster.

    I received email back from Sam saying he’s expecting this to be the Table Analysis functionality (like key influencers, highlight exceptions), and not the explicit Data Mining features (like clustering). Am going to update the title, and we’ll wait for more votes before considering this item.
    Thanks, Sam!

  8. Show "Data" > "From-Text"-Wizard by default when double-clicking *.csv files...

    When double-clicking CSV-files Excel automatically tries to guess the column formats and assumes the default field seperator.
    But this often wrong column-types are guessed and it fails for *.csv-files with unusual field seperators.

    It would be better if double-clicking a .csv file would open an import-wizard (like the existing one from "Data" > "From Text").
    - The types for the columns should default to a text-type.
    - It should not try to guess column-types automatically, but one might let excel guess manually via a button "Guess column types" in the wizard
    - The most probable
    field seperator should be pre-selected …
