    Thanks for posting about this issue. It would be very helpful if you would provide more information and screen shots to show how the words appear in Word and PowerPoint so that we can see the difference in Excel.

    Also, if you could provide a small example of the keystrokes that are used to enter one of the words on a US English keyboard (set to Myanmar or Myanmar QWERTY), it will be very helpful.

  3. Make Excel for Mac Exactly the same as in Windows

    Make possible to see toolbars with colored Icons ,(same as in 2013 version) and also the option to place it bellow the ribbon.
    There are many missing functions, that are not available in Excel for Mac

  5. Please provide Power Query and Power Pivot as a regular feature for Mac

    Importing data from other workbooks, using power query and then analyzing data using power pivot are the critical features needed by professionals for any data analysis. I got very disappointed after shifting to Macbook and paying of office 365 and not getting access to. these functionalities in excel. This is taking macbook users for a ride, though we are paying full for the MS office and not using it for free. I RECOMMEND EVERY MAC USER TO VOICE DISSENT FOR NOT GETTING ACCESS TO ALL FEATURES OF MS OFFICE DESPITE PAYING FULL PRICE.

  6. Changes to VLOOKUP/HLOOKUP

    I suggest 2 changes in Vlookup/Hlookup:

    A. VLOOKUP/HLOOKUP functions user can only search for the lookup value in the first column/row, and the result column/row is always after (right/bleow) the lookup column/row.
    I suggest to make it more flexible by letting the user decide which column to search in and which columns to retrieve the value from.

    B. Sometimes user need to drag lookup function to several columns and needs the column index to be incremented, for example to be 3 in the first column, the second column to be 4 and so on, I suggest to add new parameter…

  7. Autosave to work with iCloud. (Not everyone has OneDrive!)

    Please can you enable Autosave to work with the Mac's Cloud solution, iCloud. Although I personally use OneDrive, I don't want my excel files saved there. I have them all saved on iCloud or locally on my HD. Users should be able to select which cloud service they wish to use for Autosaving. (including other wider providers).

  9. Save As... Location

    To have a different version of a file I used to open it, edit it, then Save As... rename hit enter, but I'm very surprised that it is not saving it in the same location of the first vesrion, instead it is saving it in the last used folder of saving.

    please I need it to remember the current location of the current file, and when Save As... is used it should save it in the same location of the current file.

  10. Full functionality with Excel for iPad

    I'd like to see the full version of Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) for iPad. The mobile version doesn't cut it, and I have to switch back to my Mac. The iPad Pro's more than capable of handling the full software.

  13. In Excel for Mac, fix the issue that the characters on the formula bar get corrupted when pasting a folder name in a cell

    Copying a folder name and pasting it in a cell may not be a common operation, but sometimes we do so.
    Therefore, it would be great if you could fix the issue that the characters on the formula bar get corrupted in the operation above.
    This issue has not been fixed for a long time and is always reproducible.

  14. Make Microsoft Excel for Mac EXACTLY THE SAME as Microsoft Excel for PC.

    If Mac subscribers of Office 365 are getting less features and PC subscribers, prorate the Mac annual subscription accordingly. If not, MAKE BOTH VERSIONS OF EXCEL HAVE THE SAME MENU FEATURES!

  17. Need a way to turn off a recurring disclaimer after it presents itself a few times

    I've started using the Stocks data types and now all workbooks that have them get the disclaimer banner on each sheet every time I open it up. After seeing it a few times, the user needs to have a way to turn it off. Otherwise , it just an annoyance. Thank you.

  18. Change Default Currencies in Dropdown Menu Excel

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to change the default currencies I see listed in the dropdown menu for currencies.

    I'm in the EURO zone. Microsoft has decided I see GBPound/Euro/RMB/CHF which makes no sense to me! I never EVER use the Swiss Franc or Chinese RMB, while the USD is not in there... ????

    It should be such an easy software adjustment to select your own currencies (and order) of which currencies show in the dropdown menu. Why have currencies in shortcuts that do nothing to help the user?

  19. Make decimal separator selectable

    In Excel Windows you can choose between point or comma as decimal separator. In Excel Mac you cannot. About half of the world uses comma like Sweden and imported documents from the U.S. and some other countries always cause a lot of problems. So please let me set point or comma as decimal separator for each document.

    The ideal solution would of course be a new separator that would be standard all over the world and Microsoft together with international bodies.

  20. money in excel

    Money in Excel Manual Accounts

    I have a couple accounts that I use that aren't currently supported by Plaid, specially T-Mobile Money, Apple Card, and cash (yes, paper money!). Adding manual accounts and transactions would be a nice interim solution while waiting for support for these accounts.
