  1. 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.

  5. 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…

  8. 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.

  10. Implement the Stock Data feature from Excel 365 into Excel 2019 for Desktops

    Basic stock information retrieval is a badly needed feature that should have been added to Excel years ago. A built-in feature would be preferable to hand-crafted solutions created by users or developers with varying skill levels.

  13. In Power Query, add an all-in-1 column-centric column transformation function: Table.AddColumns

    In Power Query, it is common to add, remove, transform, rename, reorder, and change the data type of columns. Currently, each operation has its own separate function. Columns will often require multiple operations, causing columns to be repeated across different function calls, which leads to inconsistent-looking code that is difficult to read and write. Also, some functions have limitations. For example, Table.AddColumn can add only 1 column, and Table.TransformColumns cannot transform a column based on values in other columns. Finally, some functions overlap in their functionality (see Functionality.png), but this overlap is sporadic and can cause confusion.

    To solve these…

  19. Excel home und business / Aktien und Geografie

    Unter Excel home und bussiness funktioniert Aktien / Geografie nicht. Das sollte aber auch dort funktionieren. Die Funktion erleichtert einem viel Arbeit. Und als Kunde zahlt man auch sehr viel Geld für eine Lizenz.

    Auch deshalb wäre es ganz gut wenn diese Funktion bald auch unter Excel home und bussiness funktioniert.

    Nur wenn solche Dinge auch funktionieren wird die Kundenzufriedenheit auch steigen.
