  1. Excel 2016 is not responding.

    I am using licensed copy of Microsoft Office Home and Student 2016. My Excel 2016 is running two slow and stops responding frequently. Further, on a particular worksheet, it is taking more than 2 seconds to move to next cell. I am unable to resolve this typical behaviour.

  3. Validate cell values before triggering recalculation

    Currently, when a value is entered into a cell, Excel will recalculate all downstream dependent cells before checking if the value is valid according to Data Validation. If the value is invalid, this recalculation is for nothing, since the value must be changed or removed anyways. If the downstream calculations are slow, then the user needs to wait unnecessarily before they can correct their entry.

    Please check the validity of a cell value before triggering the recalculations.

  4. Where to complain? Excel 2019 Woefully slow on tiny spreadsheet

    I've got a s/s, same as my last 13 years, self employed, 3 sheets, sales, purchases and cashbook. It's no bigger than any of my oprevious year's similar spreadsheets.

    I just copied a single row, got so bored for it to update, i went downstairs and got a beer, came back, still not updated - copying one single *** row!! - went for a , came back and finally it had managed it.

    What the **** is wrong with you people? I know Excel inside out - there is nothing clever or complicated about this spreadsheet - and it's tiny…

  6. How to migrate Exchange to Office 365

    There are several reasons why we should migrate from exchange server to office 365. Some of them are like reliability, enhanced security features, reduced hardware and software maintenance cost etc. but first we have to migrate all our organization data to office 365. To do so we have various methods available. You can use any of the method depending on your business requirements. However the third party tool EdbMails Exchange Migration is more suitable as it ensures successful migration process without any data loss.

  7. Convert Same workbook reference Formulas into values by one click

    Many of the times our sheet got hang when we try to paste formula into values by using paste special on large data.

    here we can give a button which can convert our formulas into values with multiple range selection like if we do not select any range than it should work for complete sheet, on other hand if we select a range than it should work on that range only, because for the last rows we leave the formulas as is so that for preparing next day report we don't need to use the formula again we only paste…

  11. Option to remove animations so Excel 2016 runs calculations as fast as Excel 2010 did!

    My company just updated from Windows 7 / Office 2010 to Windows 10 / Office 2016.

    Excel 2016 is so slow compared to Excel 2010! I have a few large spreadsheets doing complex aerodynamics calculations then plotting charts of the results, each chart using multiple series. Input data is set and changed with various ActiveX or Form controls (e.g. toggle buttons, sliders, tick boxes, drop-downs, etc) linked to cells.

    With Excel 2010, when I made an input change, all the charts would update almost instantly. Using the same files with Excel 2016 there is a horrible ripple effect as the…

  17. Row level calculation for tables

    When we have very large tables (formatted as tables) with many fields with some heavy formulas, excel becomes slow when writing a new record because it recalculate the whole table every time.
    It would be very good for perfomance if in the calculation's option there would be an option that allows excel to calculates only the row of the table where you hit enter or where you modify data.
    Thanks in advance

  19. Dictate feature could be added to Excel for Quicker Data entry which would be helpful
