  2. Option to add a Title to a Chart Legend

    To improve comprehension of chart data, it is sometimes very helpful to explain what each data series represents. E.g. if the series names say "orange", "apples", and "bananas" the legend could say Fruit [lbs].
    While this information could be added in the chart title, it can make that title too long.

  5. In the excel filter menu show a light colored bar to show how many of that value there are in the column.

    An underlay behind the fliter menu to show the count of each value in the filter menu for that column.
    This will give users a good indication of the impact of that value. In a second phase, hovering over the value could give a tool tip with the count or make the count show up on the right hand side of the filter menu.

  8. 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.

  12. Insert gif

    I was used to insert some small .gif in Excel for illustrating a concept. Double-clicking on it, it was playing. Impossible with Office 365: it doesn't play any more (see attachment). Any way to restore it ?

  13. Function for Classifying data as ABC instead of a series of "if cell in range A; classA; if cell in range B; classB...."

    Using Frequency function, you can input a list of classes then compute the occurrencies of data selected as a matrix formula. What about classifying each item in the data interval in the class computed?
    Instead of a series of "if data in rangeA; classA; if data in rangeB; classB;0;0...), why not using the same list of classes for a new function CLOOKUP or CASEIF(cell;classMatrix;classNameColumnIndex;<= or <upper range limit).
    Examples: Pareto analisys, ABC, Inventory Cross analisys, Data stratification

  17. Go do something else. Excel for Mac sucks giant gorilla nuts.

    Words cannot even begin to describe the train wreck, abortion, dumpster fire that is this "program". I cringe every time my job requires I use this as part of my duties. I feel like finding the programmers and on their lawns. Then taking said and throwing it at their house/car/whatever. It sucks that much . In closing ******* and build something that doesn't totally suck. Basically do the opposite of what Microsoft typically does.

  18. Money

    Thank you for Money in Excel. Could you please arrange for support of UK banks, which appears to be currently missing. In addition, whilst the transactional information currently shows GBP transactions, the account summary shows the right total, but with a $ sign

  20. Change your paging options

    You forced me to this page although it is in no way relevant to my query, nor in any other way interesting.

    Will you please change whatever search criteria you used to cause that problem?
