  2. option to display sheets vertically or horizontally

    Please make it possible for the user to switch between showing the excel sheets horizontally across the bottom, and vertically. It's very frustrating navigating between sheets in a large workbook and would really help if the sheets could be displayed vertically instead of horizontally.

  3. Allow Excel Worksheet tabs to be aligned diagonally or vertically.

    I am designing worksheets with multiple tabs for users pensioners unfamiliar with Excel at anything more than a basic level. Allowing worksheet tabs to be displayed vertically or diagonally would make the spreadsheet user friendly avoiding oversight of worksheets not visible on the ribbon.

  6. LAMBDA functions and recursion -- calling a SELF function?

    I would like to be able to call a lambda recursively on the grid without the name manager. a SELF function could refer to the function being written. Is that possible? Here's an example for factorial,

    FACTORIAL: LAMBDA(n, IF(n = 0, 1, n * SELF(n - 1)))

    Here's another for matrix exponentiation,
    MPOW:

    LAMBDA( A, p, 
    
    IFS(
    OR(ROWS(A)!=COLUMNS(A), p!=INT(p),p<0),
    NA(),
    p=0,
    MUNIT(ROWS(A)),
    MOD(p,2),
    MMULT(A,SELF(A,p-1)),
    TRUE,
    LET(
    B, SELF(A,p/2),
    MMULT(B,B)
    )
    )
    )
    )

  7. Bring Power Pivot closer to Power BI Desktop Functionality

    Development for Power Pivot for Excel seems to have stopped around 2016. TREATAS got added as a DAX function that works, but it never got added to Intellisense, and that was nearly 3 years ago.

    Today, the two measure editors (still no idea why there are different ones) are a very VERY poor substitute for the fantastic DAX editor in Power BI Desktop. It is a real pain to properly tab and indent in the Excel Measure editor(s).

    In the last year there have been about a dozen new DAX functions and several updated functions per https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/new-dax-functions but NONE of…

  9. CSV Save Warning When you Have Multiple Sheets

    If you download a CSV file and add new sheets, I have accidentally saved the file in the current CSV file, thereby losing all sheets beyond "Sheet 1".

    A simple warning box, applying when you are saving a CSV file with multiple sheets would suffice. It could also suggest saving in XLS.

  16. co-authoring track changes history

    I love that using co-authoring you can manage how you share the excel file with your team wherein you can set a user as view only and the others will have the capability to edit. I however extremely need this TRACK CHANGES features 1.) alert notification real-time whenever there is change. This should have an on/off settings so you can turn this on if you want to monitor the progress real-time, 2.) you can check changes history who edit what and you can set the date so that you can select from the start and end date of the project.

  18. Recognize decimal point when importing CSV

    This problem is at least 25 years old: when your local Windows standard has the komma as decimal separator, somehow Excel is too stupid to recognize the point as decimal separator when importing a CSV-file. One look in the CSV and you see that it uses the komma between the columns and the point in the numbers. Hard to believe it when you first see this go wrong and then an old man like me tells you this is how Excel works!!! Please, Microsoft, finish your software.
