  1. Add power pivot and VBA to Mac excel

    There are very few add-ins in excel which can be added. it is time to create and support more add-ins for Mac. If Apple can solve most of those technical problems of data analysis, it is much better for it to occupy the market. I really don't want to download a windows system in my Mac.

    • Add pivot chart feature for Mac.

      There isn't a pivot chart feature available, and if anyone uses excel above middle school level will require the tool. On behalf of every college student out there, please solve this issue asap, there is absolutely no reason to why this would be acceptable.

      • Restore the pivot table wizard to Excel for Mac

        Restore the pivot table wizard for the Mac version, as you have for the Windows version. This is a critical tool to help normalize data via the multiple consolidation range function (as described in this article http://www.tek-tips.com/faqs.cfm?fid=7103).

        • Add "Import from Web" to the Mac Excel

          I want to import data from a Website like you can on the windows version. The Mac version has import from HTML which is not the same.

            • Allow removeduplicates to be used in VBA

              In windows, remove duplicates function can be used in VBA and is very effective. Currently, Mac doesn't support this function in VBA. Please add this to be used on Mac as well. Thank you.

                  • This product needs a rewrite - I don't know how you can fix unstable issues without revamping the entire code

                    I have so many grievances that I don't know where to start.

                    1. First of all, the Excel is very unstable. Excel keeps freezing and it basically disables my enter Mac. I end up force quitting Excel and Mac works fine. First I thought it might be something to do with Office 365 and ended up investing more in Office 2016. Same issue.

                    2. When I move the cursor from one cell to another, the whole sheet starts wobbling. I tried maxing the window, it worked for a short time and then back to the same.

                    3. Even a simple…

                    • Fix the Basic bugs so many have complained about. Is the Office of the President aware of the Mac Business Unit's refusal to help?

                      There are an incredible number of basic bugs that Microsoft refuses to address. For instance, 90% of the time I delete data from a cell, I must scroll up and then down for the worksheet view to appear blank. That is, deleting data from a cell, does in fact delete the data but the grid view of the cell still looks as though the data has not been deleted. I'm fed up with these kinds of basic bugs. Excel 2016 for Mac was released almost 2 years ago. I will be contacting MSFT's Office the President to inform them of…

                        It's outrageous that Microsoft is not "currently working on" restoring Relative References, after the past years of hundreds of user complaints.

                          • A way to lock a Worksheet tab so that tab stay's visible at the left side of the tabbar all the time

                            A way to lock a Worksheet tab so that tab stay's visible at the left side of the tabbar all the time.
                            If we have 10+ tabs, and we want go quickly switch to an important tab, like a total Worksheet or TOC tab, it would be welcome to have an tab that is fixed in place on the left side of the tabbar, that will not moved away when we are on a tab far on the right.

                            • Cursor not properly positioned when editing directly inside cell

                              Another user posted this issue and it's been marked as "completed". Many of us are still having the same problem more than a year after the fix was rolled out. I am reposting it as an issue.

                              Original description: I found out that if you have longer texts (>20 chars) inside an Excel Cell and you try to edit them the more you get to the right of the text the more the cursor is drawn off to the left of the characters it is actually between. Cursor Position seems to be calculated wrong. I am using Standard Calibri Font.…

                                  • Excel launching options

                                    Please restore the option for Excel to open the last workbook in use when launched, not the wretched Workbook 1, which I have to close 99.99% of the time, and then reopen what I really want to work on.
                                    This feature was there in 2008, and Googling it shows that lots of people obviously want it back.

                                          You can stop producing excel for Mac, it just doesn't work, it will be a gain of time and money for everybody
