  1. Change Default Percentage Settings

    When you click the Format as Percentage button on the Home Ribbon, it formats with 2 decimal places. No one in the entire world ever uses 2 decimal places for percentages! I know, I have asked them all :-).

    Please make it 1 decimal place by default, or better still allow the user to easily set their own default settings for each of these format number buttons.

  2. Excel bothering

    Do you know my blog
    www.excel-nervt.de?
    Sorry, it is written in German - but there you find about more than 300 Items of strange things, bugs, contradictions, bad translation, bad design, ... in Excel.
    On the page "Schade / geht nicht, Leute" (sorry, but it dosn't work, guys) I mention about almost 100 items, that people like to have, but there not inside Excel.

  3. To improve the voice functionality in order to "talk" with Excel

    It would be great to talk with Excel in a more efficient way than now, in order to use voice as a keyboard short cut.

  5. Bring back the chart wizzard

    The chart wizard made it much easier to pick chart area and to chart data transposed. I'm sure it's possible to chart transposed but I no longer know how to do it.
