  1. The min function needs to work in tables that update. Currently they drop one row (result) and repeat the largest result in the new result.

    I need a way to sort the data from the data entry column in a table on a nother column in ascending order. Min does not work. The new row repeats the highest results and the column drops a row. For example, imin($A$1:$A$22, $A$1:A1) in a table on a Mac does not work after adding a few numbers in A, the data entry column

  2. applescript "save ... as PDF file format" does not work properly

    I have tried the following code several different ways:

    "save (sheet 1 of varReferencedWorkbook) in varPDFName as PDF file format"

    I end up with the entire workbook converted to PDF (60+ pages) instead of only that sheet. If I am doing something wrong please tell me, otherwise please fix!!! Thank You.

  5. Why can I open excel but not office?

    Office 365 is really awful, and I don't know how to get a standalone version again. Crashing often. Right now I cannot get back into my office after crashing, but excel and powerpoint are still open? I've reset my password twice, nothing works. Really really really don't like the new format.

  6. Excel could not open because some content is unreadable

    Hello -

    We use a collaborate Google Sheets to mark daily hours we spend on specific projects. Every month, I create a pivot table to tally the numbers/project. I want to back up this table for my records in an Excel workbook. When I download as .xlsx, I get an error message "Excel could not open .... because some content is unreadable". Then I click "Open and repair", and it says "Excel repaired or removed unreadable content from this workbook. Do you want to review or save the log file?". Therefore, I can assume some of my data is lost.

  8. Major Data Entry Issue

    If a cell contains the number zero, and I enter another number in that cell, the zero gets appended to the new number. For example, if I enter the number 5, Excel shows 50 in that cell instead of just 5.

    Although this doesn't happen all the time, I have actually had it happen to me once out of approximately every three tries.

    This is serious because people using spreadsheets automatically enter numbers into cells and always assume the that new number will replace the old. The fact that it appends the zero to the new number can cause users…

  9. Make AutoComplete work without crashing the application

    With AutoComplete switched on in preferences and some reasonably complex spreadsheets (names, table structured references &c.) typing into the formula bar will pretty reliably crash Mac Excel.

    It's extremely frustrating and makes working on more complex spreadsheets basically impossible. Please fix this!

  10. Automator on Mac no longer is compatible with Excel for Mac

    Previously, Automator could be used to perform a variety of functions with excel. Now, using excel with automator returns the error "The action “[ACTION]” encountered an error: “Microsoft Excel got an error: Parameter error.” Where [ACTION] is the particular Automator action you wanted to perform.

    Could you please make these programs work together again?
