  4. Provide all the options that are available to Windows users

    MAC users are severely limited with what they can do in Excel compared to Windows users. I am doing an Excel course and creating a Pivot Chart is not an option for me nor do I have the option to create a PowerPivot as my classmates who use Windows PCs. All that needs to be done is to make things comparable. What you do for one- Windows PC users, you do for the other- Mac users. Level the playing field so to speak.

    It's not only about Pivot Tables. All Mac Excel applications and features need to be updated and…

  5. Fix ability to open XML files

    Up until Dec 2018 I was able to open an XML file directly in Mac Excel. Last week in Dec and still now I get this message: The file you are trying to open is not a valid Excel XML Spreadsheet.
    I am currently at Mac Excel version 16.20 (181208)

  6. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, fix your problem with MAC Excel's ability to open https hyperlinks!!!!

    I swear if I read "cannot open the internet server or proxy server" ONE MORE TIME I WILL THROW THIS COMPUTER THROUGH THE WINDOW. The addresses have been verified by a third party certifier. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY SOMETHING SO SIMPLE CONTINUES TO BE A PROBLEM!!!

  7. Bring VBA on Excel for Mac to parity with Excel for Windows

    Bring VBA on Excel for Mac to parity with Excel for Windows.
    Currently, there are too many missing VBA elements missing. It is a major problem for those of us with mixed environments. Many things that worked under Excel 2011 no longer work in 2016.

    Why is the not being addressed?

  8. Bug: Print sets page layout to the same across all worksheets on Excel for Mac

    To reproduce the issue, setup two sheets with different page layout (e.g. fit to pages, orientation etc). Select both and press print, then press cancel. Both sheets will now have the same print layout. This seems like a bug because:

    - This is not expected behaviour as it directly contradicts the documentation for Excel for Mac (see link below)
    - Pressing print shouldn't change the design of the spreadsheet and destroy painstakingly setup per-sheet page layout settings that take a long time to fix after this bug has paved over them
    - The Windows version does not have this problem …

  9. Excel for Mac should have the new Stocks functionalty

    It would be great if Excel for Mac (Insiders) is able to have the new Stocks functionality currently used by Excel for PC (Insiders)

    This functonality is described in https://support.office.com/en-us/article/get-a-stock-quote-e5af3212-e024-4d4c-bea0-623cf07fbc54

    In respect of this particular capability, it would bring Excel for Mac more in line with Apple Numbers which currently offers something similar.

    Thank you for considering this addition.

  11. WeekNum - let it work with a Array like Month() does

    We can use '=SUMPRODUCT( (MONTH(A1:A10)=MONTH(TODAY()) )* (B1:B10) )' to get a result from dates.

    However
    '=SUMPRODUCT( (WEEKNUM(A1:A10)=WEEKNUM(TODAY()) )* (B1:B10) )
    does not, because WEEKNUM can't handle an array or range.

    Please give us a WEEKNUM that handles Array and ranges

    Thank you.

  14. MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO DISABLE RECENT!!!!

    Since the last update (today is 190826) for every document you have had opened (recent) it will look/freeze for approx 5sec for EVERY LINK. How can you release something like this and still no fix! I PAID FOR SOFTWARE, AND ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY. Time to leave office like I left Windows.... Its the same in the other Office apps.

  15. Interrupt running macro

    On Windows, Ctrl+Break can be used to interrompt a macro (for instance, stuck in an infinite loop).

    Excel 2011 used to have this option too, via Cmd + .

    However, this shortcut doesn't work on the latest versions of Excel for Ma and there is no way to interrupt a macro except than force quitting.

    (Tested on 'classic' Excel 2016, and 'Mac App Store' edition of Excel 16.28).

  16. Stop Office 365 Apps enumerating the recent file list when the file menu is clicked.

    In Office 365 apps for Mac (eg Excel, Word) if the “File>Open Recent” list contains a file from located on a network volume (such as AFP or SMB) when the user clicks on the File menu the computer attempts to mount the network volume(s) where the file(s) resides.

    This behaviour is unwanted as it can cause a lag when clicking on the File menu, it also can cause Office 365 Apps to hang when on slow data links or display numerous OS network credential request dialogue boxes.

    Versions:
    Excel Mac 16.28 (19081202)
    Excel Mac 16.29 (19081305)

    Suggested action:
    Stop this…

  17. Support Internet Query Connection (.iqy files)

    It would be helpful for Excel to Mac to support internet query connections.

    When exporting a list from Sharepoint, the .iqy file is downloaded, which I subsequently can't open in Excel for Mac.

  18. what if we added a choice to transfer sheets from bottom to left side instead of column A?

    what if we can add a choice for users to transfer sheets from bottom to left side instead of column A?
    as excel user, I start using first sheet, then second one then third one then I find myself using high NO of sheets which makes finding specific sheet boring and frustrating. and if we have high NO of sheets, it will be harder even if I name the sheets

    but what if we had the ability to transfer all sheets from bottom to left side from top as they fill all column A and column A starts the next…

  19. Add icons to charting bling to make better charts like in Windows

    It is nice in a column chart to see meaningful pictures instead of boring bars. Mac only allows you to import an image. Windows supplies a library of icons making it easier and more robust.
