  3. Fix this problem: "sometimes you might find yourself with a workbook that has links you can’t find even though Excel tells you they exist. "

  4. Paste into address bar (web query browser)

    For web queries that utilize that little web browser, you cannot paste a new URL. For example, copy a URL, right click on an existing query table and "Edit Query...", then try to paste into the address bar. Nothing. Clipboard data needs to translate.

  6. Make terminology 'intuitive' ; 'Simplify'; 'link data'

    Even the list above - I don't know what a macros and add in is,and every day there is new terminology, vlook ups... I do have some idea of what I wan't to achieve though. How about tailoring terminology for 'jo bloggs' rather than IT specialists - it will still work for everyone.

    I'm trying to combine workbooks and link fields across worksheets so I don't have to update data in each worksheet/ workbook. I'm finding it a very difficult task. Thanks for asking. I can't attach file for security reasons.

  9. Data types - Please add an option for the icon position

    Hi there,
    I would like to suggest to have an option where to place the icon shown in cells having a data type.
    Additionally, I would like to suggest for left-to-right reading languages to have the default position of this icon on the right side of the cell.
    This would for example allow text to be placed vertically at the same position compared to titles and therefore give a more uniform visualization in e.g. reports.
    Best,
    Mourad

  12. Pasting Info Into Custom Sort, Custom List Box

    In previous version of Excel, I could copy a line of data from one workbook and paste it into the Custom Sort box of another workbook to pull up the info I needed for a 3rd workbook. Now, the Paste feature is totally disabled in the MS Office Professional Plus 2019. Please bring it back. Creating a custom list does not help me because my list changes every single day. (I am able to paste the list in Word, recopy, and paste it in the Custom List, but I want to avoid this extra step)

  14. Align MS Project and Excel import and export formats

    Importing and exporting between msp and excel is a formatting horrorshow (starting with msp export including timestamps by default). Cleaning the export for updates and comments, let alone aligning the formatting for msp import (no formulas allowed, file must be closed,...) takes too much time. Finally, wizard column IDs should be exactly the same than what user sees in msp columns (ie. Customised longer name). Takes ages to check and/or test that right setup has been configured and stored

  17. LEAVE IT ALONE!!! WHY DO I HAVE TO WORK AROUND ALL YOUR IMPROVEMENTS THAT DO NOT WORK???

    QUIT FIXING IT - IT WORKS, I SPEND MORE TIME TRYING TO GET YOUR IMPROVED VERSION TO WORK THAN I DO WORKING PRODUCTIVELY. STOP CHANGING THINGS. THERE IS NO VALUE IN TRYING TO FIND WHERE YOU MOVED A FEATURE OR TRYING TO DEBUG A GOOD FEATURE YOU BROKE.

  19. Why some stocks aren`t available at Office365? Ex. KNRI11, MXRF11, BCRI11

    I am using Excel Office365 (Data - Stock) and some stocks available at B3 are not available for Excel Office365 (MXRF11, BCRI11, KNRI11) - a support person from Microsoft told me it is because Excel Database is not updated. Okay, but it doesn`t make sense, how a Stock Listed in Market is not available? Can you guys include/update it?
