    In the case of Excel 2019 store app version, if you click the link of the CSV file on the Internet in the browser, the contents of the CSV file will be displayed as text on the browser.
    If you reinstall the previous Excel or desktop version, the CSV file will open normally in Excel, but please fix the bug so that the store application version of Excel 2019 will also open in Excel as well.

    本文(日本語):Excel 2019 のストアアプリ版の場合、インターネット上のCSVファイルのリンクをブラウザでクリックするとCSVファイルの内容がブラウザ上にテキストとして表示されてしまいます。
    以前のExcel、もしくは、デスクトップ版を再インストールすればCSVファイルが正常にExcelで開かれますが、Excel 2019 のストアアプリ版でも同様にExcelで開くよう不具合を修正して欲しい。

  4. Allow for more categories in Money in Excel

    The Categories spreadsheet only allows for the addition of 20 categories. My Quicken account, which I am trying to terminate, has over 70 categories in current use. This limits the usefulness of Money in Excel.

  5. Make it to where you can use cell color as a reference point

    I don't know of a way to use the cell color as a reference point in a formula, i.e. =IF(A2=Color X,(B2/C2),D2) I would like this capability.

  11. Separate Excel windows shall not share an UNDO buffer.

    Sorry Microsoft, but you really blew it in the 2016 update. Separate Excel windows used to be separate Excel windows. Now they share the same buffers for Undo, copy/paste, and highlighting. This is really limiting when working comparatively on two spreadsheets.

  13. Bring Sheet View to the desktop app for files saved online

    Most people in my org who filter an Excel spreadsheet saved to SharePoint or OneDrive don't use Excel Online as it is not as feature rich as the desktop app. Sheet View avoids the problem Auto Save presents when filtering for other users collaborating at the time or opening it fresh with those filters auto saved. However, Sheet View is only available on the Online version of Excel currently https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/excel-blog/sheet-view-is-generally-available/ba-p/1032576.
    Can you please also bring this feature to the desktop app?

  14. Formatting duplicate values through a slash / Форматирование повторяющихся значений через слэш

    Eng.
    Everything is visible in the screenshot.
    The text format of the cells is used so that there are no conversions of numbers to date, while formatting duplicate values is worth filling in red. According to the “opinion” of MS Excel, the numbers 1/1 and 1/20 are the same, 1/2 and 2/20 are the same, etc., the relationship is direct.
    This error exists only with the numbers of the series 1 / X and X / 20, [1 <X <12], X is an integer.
    If my record is not clear to someone, then this is how pairs of "repeating" values…

  15. iPad create pivot table

    Please add full support for pivot table creation for IPad OS. This is a basic requirement for financial professionals such as myself. This alone would help me use the iPad as my primary work device.

  16. Multiple cells selection problem

    We select multiple cells by holding control key. But when we accidentally select a cell without holding control key, all selected cells are gone and we have to do the selection again. This is very irritating. Please add option for the same.

  17. Change shortcut paste special addition as it has always been (French O365)

    Hello
    Excel is a wonderful soft. Nevertheless sometimes developers make counterproductive changes:
    On office 365 French version, the keyboard shortcut (small underlined letter) of the paste special Addition « d » has been replaced by “Ajouter” « j ». Total lack of ergonomics on an azerty Keyboard because « j » breaks your wrist.
    Total lack of common sense on this change which use to be since 2003. On a mathematical lexical point of view, a substraction is a substraction (shortcut « s ») and an addition is an addition (shortcut « d » beside the « s » on…
