  3. Speed up Tables calculated columns calculation and filtering

    Since the introduction of tables in Excel I have been a huge user, mainly because of the column names reference we can use in VbA and in formulas.

    But when a table gets a little big, it gets slower and slower.
    And it takes huge percentage of the CPU.

    For example, I have a table of 7 columns coming from an ODBC data query.
    78,000 lines.

    I added 3 columns that are calculated just by concatenation of column values.

    Previously this table was quick and easy to filter.
    Now that I've added those formulas, I sometimes have to restart Excel…

  7. Please Fix Excel - Performance of new versions ~50 times slower than older versions

    We have several Excel 64bit applications for customer sites, that populate a sheet with data from various automation controllers. Where as these applications have be performing flawlessly with Version 1902 or earlier versions of Excel, new versions 2012 and 2101 cannot operate the code. We have identified these newer versions are incredibly slower than the older versions mentioned when populating cells. A simple For Next loop confirmed that version 2012 is between 40 to 60 times slower, version 2101 somewhere between 30 and 50 times slower in performing the same basic task of writing cells from one sheet to another…

  9. Camera tool (Linked Images) respect screen updating and Calc=manual

    Camera Tool images needs to respect the Screen Updating=false and Calculation=manual setting - and not just burn through CPU for ever single update to any cell on any (other) workbook

    This makes Excel appear to have hung when it is just re-rendering the same data 10,000 times

  10. BUG: Floating Point Operations Errors with low precision numbers

    Excel is incorrectly performing math operations.

    Cell B2 = 6.2
    Cell C2 = 5.85
    Cell D2 = C2-B2
    Answer = -0.3500000000000010

    This is incorrect. The answer is 0.35, with no rounding required. This is causing several operations in my worksheet to fail. I shouldn't need to work around this using TRUNC().

    Please Advise.

  11. Multi dimentional cells

    Some people use Excel as a quick and easy database or documentation.
    Would be nice to have, at minimum, a history of change of each cell.

  12. stock and geography

    Service ticket number - 1016144833. Stock data is not live.. There is always a delay/lag of 5 to 10 minutes.. Even after clicking "Refresh All" button, data is delayed.. I have attached a file for reference.. I have circled the data delay message from Refinitiv (data provider) in red.. I have also cross checked with live data online and there is always delay/lag.. My question is - "Is Microsoft planning to solve it?" If yes, by when will it get resolved? if not, I subscribed office-365 for stock data and if I am not getting live data, O-365 is useless…

  16. Prevent file from being emailed, perhaps do it with a prompt.

    So you would click a button somewhere to warn before sending. Very helpful in the business sector. Seems like an easy thing to add. THanks!

  20. Speed up deletion of rows when filter applied.

    Hi,

    If when deleting rows with a filter applied included the following to the backround processing maybe it would help reduce wait time. This is based on the fact that deleting a single range of rows when no filter is applied is almost instantaneous:

    1. Add 2 temporary columns, one to index (unique ID) each row to keep original sort, the second to give the filtered rows a reference of "2" and the unfiltered rows a reference of "1".

    2. Sort the second column and delete down from rows containing "2".

    3. Sort by Index column, delete both columns, cursor to A1.

    I…
