  2. When are you going to add power pivot to Mac Excel.

    When are Mac users going to get POWER PIVOT on Mac Excel, feeling a little cheated.

  5. Power Pivot function on PC must ALSO be usable feature on Mac

    Seems a rip-off that Mac users must pay the same price for MS Office only to be short-changed on the utility of the program. Mostly use Excel and Outlook. The latter is generally okay, but Excel lacks.


    1. Control keys do not navigate properly on the Mac and/or display does not move properly, especially large files; and germain to this thread,


    2. Building pivot tables on the Mac is an absolute pain in the ... while very simple on a PC. Learned (from MS support) that this is a feature called "Power Pivot" that simply is not available on the Mac. Makes…

  6. Improving Pivot Tables regarding control source data and caches.

    I had a big problem after an office update. My files couldn't be open correctly because some pivots had some links to other external files. But as the microsoft support told me it is not possible to delete those links to other files. I didnt understand why, but they told me a pivot table will never forget those links and I have to rebuild everything from the scratch. Please add a possibility to overview, add and delete all links to other files out of a pivot table.

    Additional I ask my self why there is no window/funktion to visualize the…

  7. PivotTable summarize

    It would be very useful if you could define your own setting. For example, I never use the summary, it would be better for me if the default setting was average. It is very time consuming, for multiple data always open the pop-up window and change the setting.

  8. Bring back PivotTable and PivotChart Wizard in Excel for Mac.

    Need to use different grouping from same source data. Functionality should be the same as Windows version. Without clearing cache for new table data grouping is consistent across all tables linked to same data source. I have one table in days but would like another table from same source but I years. It converts both tables to year altering the whole analysis. This affects slicers too. Workaround would be to inefficiently copy data source to another table with same data bit different name. So you would be C&P data from one table to the other. Not efficient at all.

  14. Set PivotTable default layout options

    We need the magic of "File > Options > Data > Click the Edit Default" etc. to set PivotTable defaults. This feature exists for Windows. We know it's there and can see its value. It's time to bring it to Mac and set us free! ~ Who's with me? ~

  20. Sort Pivot Tables by more than one variable

    Allow a secondary sort on pivot tables if multiple values are the same. Currently, I have to calculate another variable to manually allow this feature.

    Ex: the total # of sales is equal for multiple salesmen, the program should default to sorting by another field of my choice (ex: Total value of sales)
