  1. Double clicking a cell with a formula to view the cells in use

    When I double click a cell with a formula in it in order to view which cells i've use in the formula, there is major lag in the highlighting of these cells if you must scroll horizontally to view them. I scroll several columns out of view to see the cells in use and I have to wait for SECONDS before the highlights appear. If you scroll around at all after the highlights appear, they disappear. This is extremely frustrating and wasn't a problem in the old version. This was instantaneous. Please let me know if this is a setting…

  2. Unable to do Save As to OneDrive Folder and Local Directory At the Same Time (Excel)

    I notice that it is necessary to do two save as functions of an Excel workbook document if I want to have a current copy both in my OneDrive folder and local directory or drive on my Mac. At the moment I have do a save as of a workbook to my OneDrive folder then do a second save as of the same workbook to a local directory or drive.

    Important suggestion is for the developers to urgently consider writing an option of allowing the saving of files into the two locations at the same time, without having to so…

  3. Number of calculations

    What I would like is for Excel to be able to summarise how many calculations it has done in a spreadsheet and how many cells are linked or use functions like lookups. Word has something that counts words, sentences etc, but it would be so useful if when I was showing a client a spreadsheet I could show just how many calculations were were in the spreadsheet.

  4. Fix it unactivate Excel window just after typing only once to a cell

    After using some macro, I just type only once to enter a word to a cell, and I found I can't type anything because Excel window is not active.
    In this case, we can click the cell to activate Excel window and make it possible to enter a data again, but this bothers me much.
    Another measurement is to reboot Excel, and open books again( sometimes missing some books!!)...

    please fix this.

  7. Saving file after crash and no internet connection

    After Excel for Mac crashes while the computer is not on an internet connection, it fails to verify that the software is authenticated and thus disables the 'save' function. This has been very problematic especially in areas without internet connection/ during exams!
