  4. Visual confirmation of data entry by changing colour of the blank cell, AFTER data is entered,

    Visual Confirmation by changing the colour of the blank cells AFTER data is entered into it. Example, if my colleague is entering data in cell a2, b2, c2, forgets to enter data in d2, but enters data in e2. The intent is to show the cell d2 data was not entered.

  5. ip address

    Add IPv4 & IPv6 Address as a number format.
    I use Excel to quickly work with log files, firewall configurations and router ACLs that are 1000+ rows.
    Since an IP address is currently formatted as text 10.10.10.10 comes before 10.10.10.2 when you sort.
    Provide formula to quickly determine if an address is contained in a CIDR range, the CIDR range(s) for a selection of IP addresses, vlookup a host address in a table of CIDR ranges to, for example, find the VLAN that address is a part of.

  6. In Excel 16.36 on Mojave fix the way that cell borders are displayed and printed

    A few border styles display and print OK, but most diagonal styles are incorrect, too bold or invisible. One hatched style prints horizontal and verticals incorrectly too. See attached spreadsheet for details.

  7. The Acounting Double Line.

    Sometimes I feel that it would be useful to control the color of each half of this line as separate colors. (Example: top black, bottom red)

  9. EXCEL for MAC version 16.35 has a conditional formatting bug

    Conditional formatting which uses named ranges in the condition, can't be copied between two workbooks. It can be copied only within one workbook.
    Identical conditional formatting that uses unnamed ranges can be copied between workbooks without a problem.
    This bug is in versions 16.35 and 16.37.

    PLEASE FIX!

  14. Figures centered but units aligned

    In columns, units should be aligned with units, tens with tens and so on… It would be great to have numbers centered in the column but units aligned

  15. SUPPORT KERNING!

    I stopped updating excel at version 15.41 because every version which I have tried after that forces text to reflow when opening documents and text in these versions appears horrid compared to text in earlier versions. I finally realized what changed -- in 15.41 and earlier, excel uses the fonts kerning information, whereas subsequent versions ignore it. Why support for kerning was dropped is beyond me, but please please please bring it back!

  17. Make the formatting uniform to all Operating systems (windows and MAC)

    We have noticed various issues when an Excel file is created and then e-mailed to a Mac user. For example, certain cells do not stay highlighted. Also, when the Windows user sees a spreadsheet solely appearing on one page sometimes when myself (Mac user) receives it a Column or Row does not fit. Additionally, under page layout when select print headings this expansion of the sheet occurs. We have noticed various formatting issues and wish that the Excel program would be more consistent so that each user would have a similar view as well as experience using the program's lies.

  20. Customized asset management - Gestion tailles personnalisées

    I sometimes use Excel documents with a special layout (for example: width 1000 mm x height 100 mm). With Excel 2011, there was no problem. the standard procedure of setting the paper size ("manage custom sizes ...") from the print window allowed to get Pdf files with the correct layout.
    With Excel 2019 (version 16.31 on macOS Catalina 10.15.1), custom size management does not work properly. The situation is abnormal and needs to be addressed.

    J'utilise parfois des documents Excel dont la mise en page est spéciale (par exemple : largeur 1000 mm x hauteur 100 mm). Avec Excel 2011,…
