        • Strange Excel bug I encountered, curious for an explanation.

          so try this out. in one cell do 13/6 in another do 7/6. you'll get 2.166666667 and 1.166666667. Subtract 2 from the cell with 2.166666667 and 1 from the 1.166666667. You now have 2 cells with .166666667. Do an if statement on them to ensure they're the same. now take both cells and multiply them by 6. Both cells should contain 1. Do another If statement......They're different now right? Blow out the decimal places so it goes about 10 decimals deep and one changes to .9999999999990 while the other remains 1.....weird right?

                • Excel crashes and cells cannot be edited with High Sierra

                  Dear Excel team, this has been posted already and has 74 comments on it, but you closed it. The reason you are not seeing crash reports is because we have to kill the app and this doesn't seem to generate a crash report.

                  Issue is as described by 4 pages of comments, please reopen. If not then I have created this as a new issue.

                  If you attempt to double click in the cell or click in the function bar, then Excel freezes, by keeping the cursor in the cell and removing keyboard entry. Menu's stop working as well, the…

                      Select all - check box on Mac in comparison with Windows version, has only 2 values: all or not checked. On Windows ( when I was using excel 2003) there where 3 values : all, all for current selection, and not ticked. All for current selection was grey, and it was active, if you have applied some other filter in different column. Currently I setup filter in first column, than want to limit selection by the field currently visible in another column, I am not able to do it, as it immediately sets Select all. So second filter can't be…

                        Using Solver, you cannot select multiple ranges in the "By changing variable cells box. If you select a range, type "," and select another range, the first range is overwritten rather than appended as in the Windows version of Excel.

                              Excel (Microsoft Office 2011) became too slow after updating Mac OS. Scrolling is too slow and so is data entry.

                                  Pasting an image from a screen shot or a capture of the screen gives an image in Excel which is sheared off/over. It's a bad and broken image. All of the numerous other apps on the Mac take the same image from the clipboard perfectly.

                                  • Including message or control with functions SUMIF and COUNTIF when the condition is more than 15 digits

                                    Something similar I could detect and register 7 years ago.
                                    Since July 2011 was confirmed and registered the case of MS Excel Falla with calculation sheet accounting using the functions SUMIF and COUNTIF, registered for the first time in the Dominican Republic (ONDA Copyright Office), which still persists in all languages and versions.
                                    When the condition in the 2 functions SUMIF and COUNTIF are numeric with more than 15 digits, it leads to match them without giving any message and giving incorrect values when comparing their results.

                                      • there is no selection tool for objects in excel for mac 2016 - so very hard to edit objects in a spreadsheet, such as arrows

                                        we need a selection tool to grab objects like arrows or shapes in a group of cells. Then the cells are selected, we can only edit the cells contents but not the objects. Trying to get round this omission is very hard. And deleting objects does not mean they disappear. It is all very hit and miss.

                                        • Don't open EVERY recent file when Excel opens!

                                          Whenever Excel opens it automatically opens EVERY recent file, marked "Last saved by user". This happens even if I have saved and closed all files. The files also open with blank cells.
