  4. #PowerBIDataTypes should be available with Power BI pro

    This should be available with a powerBI pro license not only on upgrade to E5, Those of us in smaller orgs who are experimenting with BI and researching how valuable it could be for us as it evolves need exactly this sort of capacity to demonstrate a good business case to excel users. They will see a direct benefit to themselves in this. But we are not going to upgrade to E5 yet.

  5. remove empty rows and columns automatically

    When importing data from other formats, say a pdf, the data is often formatted badly with lots of empty columns and rows between fields of useful data, these are usually minimised and get in the way of performing useful functions.I would like the ability to automatically remove any column or row within a highlighted data area, where the whole column or row contains no data. the sheet I am looking at currently goes up to column EY, but only has 12 columns of actual data. similarly it is 597 rows high and only should be around 100.

  6. Getting Data from another excel file copies the cell format and style

    I want to have a separate excel sheet that can get an updated data from another worksheet and also follows the cell format and style.

    I can only get an updated data but it won't follow the cell format and style

    If I do a copy/paste, I can get the data with the format and style but it won't update any data if there are changes from the other workbook

  9. Make it possible to stop Excel from changing entries to dates. Give us a Options setting that stops Excel from doing this altogether, ever.

    When working with data, opening CSV or TSV files, copying and pasting from other documents, Excel has the nasty habit of changing many entries into a date format. This is done automatically, without verification or any indication that the data entries have been changed.

    it should be possible to have a system-wide option to prevent Excel from doing this whatsoever. Many scientists would love to have the power that Excel gives, without the destructive autocorrect-like monstrosities.

    Switch it off.

  11. Please allow the creation of rules for assigning merchant names to Categories when transactions are imported

    Please allow the creation of rules for assigning merchant names to Categories when transactions are imported. This would reduce the manual effort required to keep the transactions Categorized in a consistent manner.

  12. Populate missing data in Stock data Types

    Stock Data Type:

    Need to populate attribute fields. Currently, a crazy number of fields associated with a security still show up as "#Field! - lots of this data such as RETURNS over the various time frames (YTD, 1 yr, 3 yr, 5 yr) would be incredibly useful and increase productivity.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your valuable feedback.

    Currently Money in Excel doesn’t support the functionality of importing transactions manually from the account. It currently supports transaction sync up to 90 days from the date you signed in with the account on Money in Excel. We understand that providing the functionality to import older transactions to Money in Excel would be a great feature hence we will share your feedback with the apt team for review.

    Thank you for using Money in Excel!

    Best,

    Vipin Nair

  17. Smart Paste for html tables

    When pasting from a web page, Excel assumes an input element like a checkbox as a control, it creates checkbox controls and activates or keeps them unchecked, depending on the html input.

    But what one needs from Excel is to interpret a checked or un-checked input control from an html table as TRUE / FALSE data.

    Similar smart behavior can be applied to other controls where smart text is the default for pasting and the selected value or text becomes the data from html.

  18. Text Import Wizard needs default preference settings for delimiter, fixed vs delimited, first row etc.

    This can't possibly be a new idea, but I cannot find another one to vote for.

    Please add a preference for the default field delimiter in the text import wizard. In my case, the delimiter is always a comma and every time I import I mutter to myself "Tab - I have never seen a tab delimited file", and this is not healthy. When I'm old and senile muttering away to myself in my wheelchar with my plaid blanky over my kneeds, this is what I will be muttering, and I really would rather be reciting Shakespeare or Auden.

    I…

  19. PST Splitter tool to divide Outlook PST files

    If anyone wants to break the large oversized PST files then I would suggest to use the MailsDaddy PST Split Tool. It breaks the large PST file according to date, size, email-id, and folder. This Software supports ANSI and UNICODE Version of PST files. The PST Splitter tool divides the PST files without installing MS-Outlook.

  20. Bring Stocks Data Type for All Office Products

    Please make Stocks and Geography data types functional for all Excel versions (atleast Office 2016+).
    In non-Office 365 excel versions we can "see" the stocks data type in ribbon menu but it does not work! It is just put there are a click-bait so people pay additional money for Office 365.

    For me, the stocks feature worked for a few weeks in Office 2016 then suddenly stopped working. This was without any intimation/information. I had already developed a full workbook based on stock data thinking that the feature was available for everyone. Now all that time is wasted and it…
