  1. money in excel

    Money in Excel Manual Accounts

    I have a couple accounts that I use that aren't currently supported by Plaid, specially T-Mobile Money, Apple Card, and cash (yes, paper money!). Adding manual accounts and transactions would be a nice interim solution while waiting for support for these accounts.

  3. Fix Ver 16.45 so VBA goal seek macro that works on Catalina OS also work with Mac Big Sur OS with M1 Chip

    Having upgraded from MacBook Air (Catalina OS) to Mac Book Pro M1 (Big Sur OS) the same goal seek macro results in a crash of Excel on the MacBook. Having spent all day investigating with apple and your support team it seems that there is a problem with Ver 16.45 running on the MacBook Pro (Big Sur). The same machine will run the macro on ver 15.41 but not on Ver 16.45 . However ver 16.45 running on the MacBook Air works. Please resolve as this is likely to be happening to others also. Your support team has the error…

  4. Restore the "Do Not Open" button to "This workbook contains macros" warning dialog

    In Excel 16.44 the only choices are "Enable Macros" and "Disable Macros". If the user has selected for loading the workbook that contains the macros by mistake, there is no longer an option to revoke the request. The user is forced to accept the load, and then close the workbook.

  7. Add PowerPivot for Macs.

    I've seen this has been a complaint going back for years and it never seems to be addressed. I am quite confident that Microsoft has the resources to provide the same functions across Mac and Windows.

  11. Customizing form controls

    Can you please restore user forms and active-x controls? The form controls are so limited in customization features that they are almost useless to me as a vba developer. I can’t even specify a font size for a combo box on a worksheet.

  12. There is an issue with toolpak for excel 2016 version 16.45 in MacOS.

    My data analysis toolpak was working perfectly for version 16.43 but when I tried to update my excel to 16.45, then there was an error in the tookpak. I cannot use that particular toolpak on 16.45. I tried reinstalling everything including addins but it was not working. Later I reverted back to 16.43 and then everything was normal. So, it must be the problem with 16.45.

  13. Modeless Information Box

    Dear Excel Team,
    I have a macro, and I want Excel to display a modeless (non-modal) message to the user while the macro is running. That way, the user will know that the macro is still running, and has not crashed. I would like this message to go away when the macro is done. Then I could fire a new message, indicating "Done!"
    I do NOT want to use the status bar for this, since the status bar is not conspicuous enough.
    The MsgBox function does not work, because it prevents the rest of the macro from running.
    I can't…

  16. Macros and Add-ins

    I am finding it necessary, due the pandemic, to translate a number of classroom based, manual, cognitive performance tests into tests deliverable using Excel Sheets or Workbooks. Translating these tests is not a problem. What is proving difficult is the ability to run a countdown clock to measure time taken to complete the test.

    I have written a macro that is a successful work-around for a clock but the countdown pauses each time the test sheet is manipulated.

    Is there a solution to these problems, or if not, is a solution being worked on.

  17. Application.PathSeparator returns wrong character

    In Excel 2019 Mac, Application.PathSeparator still returns "/".
    The path returned by CurDir triggers a "path not found" error when used in ChDir (path)

    To successfully change the file path in vba, It has to be entered in the form:
    ChDir ("User:aho:Desktop").
    ChDir ("/User/aho/Desktop") triggers a Run-time error '76': Path not found
    CurDir still returns the path as "/User/aho/Desktop"

    This seems to be linked to a change in MacOSX introduced several major updates ago, as the path displayed for a file by <cmd>I under OSX also changed

  18. Replace VBA with JavaScript / HTML

    So maybe this is too big of a change for Excel. What if...?


    1. Replace VBA with JavaScript (actually allow both languages for while)

    2. Use TypeScript as the foundation

    3. Instead of UserForms and all their controls + ActiveX controls, just use pure HTML 5.0 for forms

    4. Make this run in the client Excel just like VBA does today - no web server required.

    5. Set it up in such a way that the new programs / forms run in web based Excel without modification.

    6. Set it up in such a way that the new programs / forms run on all platforms including…

  20. Make Money in Excel work for multiple Editor accounts

    HI, my wife and I are still using the legacy version of Microsoft Money. We were excited to see the new template for Money in Excel. But it quickly became a non-starter when only one Microsoft Account can be an editor. Support for Editing / managing, the file for multiple Microsoft accounts is key to make this usable.
