  3. Fix 2011 Mac so numbers accept comma separators again

    As of recent update version 14.6.9 (160926) there are no longer commas as 000's separators, vene though the formatting screen has a button to do so and custom formats show commas - but none are inserted. As a professional accountant, this is unacceptable.

  6. Error with VLOOKUP and GETPIVOTDATA double-populating characters

    When I try entering a formula in which the range references cells in a separate workbook, I get a double-character in the formula when I start typing again.

    For example, I try to enter the formula:
    =VLOOKUP(A1,'[Workbook-Name]Sheet1'!$A$C,3,FALSE)

    To populate the cell range, I click into the other workbook and highlight the desired columns. Then I enter the comma and 3. Excel will automatically turn the 3 into a 33.

    For GETPIVOT, I see similar issues, but this time it tends to insert two commas after the workbook cell reference.
    Sample formula:
    =GETPIVOTDATA("Field",'[Workbook-Name]Sheet1'!$A1,"Name","Value")

    If I create formulas reference ranges within the…

  15. Fix the scatter plot bug where 60=6.0

    I have come across this strange bug/feature a few times in Excel, scratched my head and exported my data to Kaleidagraph in order to make a plot that's correct, but this time I drilled a bit deeper:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tOO6dJx6v0

    It seems that if you make a scatter plot (perhaps other plots as well?) using data created with the function "indirect" Excel chooses "Custom" as the number format for the graph and the format "0.0" which for some inexplicable reason displays 60 as 6.0. I have found a workaround (shown in the video clip above), but surely Excel is not supposed to…

  16. My excel crashing if I run VBA macro that has looping formula

    My excel crashing if I run VBA macro that has looping formula.

    I try to press esc twice and CTRL+. to stop the VBA macro calculation, however nothing happening, so I need to force quit my excel.

    When I try the same file in Excel PC, it works perfectly, I can stop the looping with Esc button.

    Please fix this issues on next version of Excel, I think this issue occurs because Excel for mac take much GPU Resources when run a looping VBA

  17. Spillage Errors

    This applies to Excel for Mac as well as Windows. I have been an Excel user since 1993 and I build spreadsheets frequently. Most of my spreadsheets perform simple arithmatic operations - e.g. they utilize simple algebra and trigonometry formulas. Very rarely do I use Dynamic Array Functions. I use Range Names so that I can easily check my formulas. Within the last few weeks I have been getting "Spillage Errors" associated with Dynamic Arrays even though I did not use a Dynamic Array Function. These errors seem to be associated with my Range names. I've never had this in…

  18. Windows version. Excel shows that the "Integer" fu

    This is not a new Idea, but an Error just discovered on the Mac version as well as the Windows version of Excel. The Integer function in Excel currently reports that the Integer of any decimal value less than -1 is equal to -1. This in NOT correct. The Integer any number less than 1 should be ZERO.

  19. Consistent F2 Key to toggle point and edit

    There are a number of Dialogue boxes including Define Names, Data Validation where the F2 key does not toggle between edit/point. This inconsistency hampers productivity and increases frustration. Shortfall observed across a range of Apple devices/Excel versions. BTW Windows versions are fine

  20. MAKE IT SO IT DOESN'T CRASH!!!

    Guys! Excel crashes every 15 mins or more! It's almost unusable and I have to use it. It ridiculous how bad it is. I shouldn't have had to pay money for this and it makes my job 10x harder. Please fix it. For the amount of money I paid for office (and excel) it should be a working program. Right now Microsoft is a thief of my money and time with the amount of times I've had to redo work with all the crashes. I don't want to hear how you fixed it, just fix it!! (yes, I've updated the…
