  1. Stockticker Update

    Need update for Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd (XKRX:042660) - South Korean stock exchange. Other XKRX stocks are available via the Stock ticker, so why does it not find this one.

    Also no Singapore exchange stocks found, only OTC exchanges. e.g. Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Ltd (OTCM:OVCHY) instead of Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Ltd (SGX:O39).

  3. Improve stock data type search

    Some stocks are not easy to search, it would be easier if we could just enter the ticker and market, as there is just one ticker for stock and market.

    Other option could be integrating somehow all the predictive results that Morningstar offers when you start typing. Besides I find somehow difficult to pick the right stock, as sometimes you are not able to select from which market you want to get it.
    For example CVR Partners is not listed when searched and if you search by UAN, which is the NYSE ticker it just finds Yorbeau at German market,…

  4. Cut and paste CSV and JSON right into cells rather than import.

    CSV and JSON formatted text is pretty obvious. It would be a lot easier to cut and paste CSV into cells such that each CSV delimited cell becomes one cell in excel.

  9. Combine multiple files into one with multiple tabs

    Adobe has an option where you can select multiple files, right click, and combine them all together into one pdf. I think something similar for excel would be excellent: select multiple excel files, right click, and combine them into one spread sheet separated by tab.

  11. I wanted to extract the data from sheet1 and sheet2 with respect to date using if condition,

    I have 3 sheets named as Generalized sheet, sheet2 and Sheet3,
    To copy data from sheet 2 and 3 based on the date If condition is being used.
    when the 1st if logical value is false another if condition is used (nested if).
    =IF(Sheet3!$A2=Generalized!$K$1,Sheet3!$A$2,IF(Sheet2!$A2=Generalized!$K$1,Sheet2!$A$2," "))

    Sheet 3 has data in 5 cells hence the above formula is working fine.

    When the formula is dragged the cell count increases and hence the formula goes wrong.

    Please help me in solving this

    Solution.
    can we get an update to unlock the cell once the logical condition is false.

  15. I need to delete duplicates but want to keep last one entry instead of first one entry. So, data -> remove duplicates is not working.

    I need to delete duplicates but want to keep last one entry instead of first one entry. So, data -> remove duplicates is not working.

    Also, note that my first column is key column to find unique entries and I don't have any column to apply filter or sort so that I can sort the data in reverse (i.e. date) and keep first one and then remove sort etc.

  16. Please include other data in the new Data Types feature in Excel. The data for dividends is totally missing.

    For dividend/income investers, we really need dividend information if the data types for stocks is to be useful.

  20. Organisation data from excel instead of visio to excel

    Visio can connect to outlook exchange server to get the organisation chart and the same can be exported to excel. There are limitations that we can get only the subordinates / reportees and not drilled up level and shall filter only for a person might be due to formatting constraint on the visio.

    Improvement for this could be that excel should have an option to connect to exchange server to get the organisation data both top and bottom hierarchy of a person by getting the input (or full extract of everyone in a company) and should avoid use of visio…
