  3. "Parameters..." can't be clicked (see "Customize a parameter query")

    I'm trying to use a parameter in a SQL Query and I found what I needed in this page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/customize-a-parameter-query-addf7cb7-ddf0-442f-a60c-cd7280e201bd?ui=en-us&rs=en-us&ad=us#ID0EDABAAA=2016,_2013
    However, the "Parameters" Button in the Definition tab (Connection Properties dialog box) can't be clicked. Why?

  6. Bring back screen updating on Mac and VBA code break using "esc". This are critical for proper VBA coding

    Excel had the screen updating ability when running a VBA code, and with the latest update (early 2020) it is now gone? the VBA on the excel is rather incomplete and should work like the Windows version. When developing new macros, it is critical to be able to stop the code execution with "esc" and see the screen updating/refresh in order to assess whether the code is running. In addition, the Name Ranges manager is incomplete and should be improved in terms of ability to update names and manage a list. Again the Windows version is like how this should…

  8. Enable capability to create add-in menu via VBA (as with PC)

    In the PC version of Excel one can create an Add-In menu via a VBA module that executes when a workbook is opened and adds a ribbon tab that displays a drop-down box where the selections link to macros which implement custom-developed capabilities. Why hasn't this been done for the Mac?

  9. Allow Macros to be Enabled by Workbook

    Rather than make Macro behavior global, give us the ability to Enable them within individual Workbooks so we don't have to see the alert dialogue each time that Workbook is opened. I would suggest putting a setting in the Properties and adding a button/link to the dialogue options.

  10. Bring back distinct msgbox displays according to vbconstant used as (it is with PC)

    Msgbox "Hello", vbQuestion show the same window (with the same logo on the left) as Msgbox "Hello", vbInformation or Msgbox "Hello", vbExclamation although it is fine with Msgbox "Hello", vbCritical

  13. Allow Keyboard Shortcuts in VBE

    The visual basic for applications editor for the Mac does not have the ability to edit keyboard shortcuts. The most common editing shortcut used is to step through code while debugging. In windows VBE this is F8, and those of us who are familiar with the windows version would like to have the same experience on the Mac. The current keyboard shortcut requires two hands and makes it very awkward to step through and debug your code.

    According to Madoc Huang MSFT in the Microsoft community forum, I should post this here because this feature is not available on the…

  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. Switching from Excel 2011 to Excel 2016 - Need a migration guide for VBA. 2016 does not run my 2011 macros correctly.

    There appear to be critical compatibility issues between 2011 and 2016 for Mac.
    I've written a lot personal finance code. I need to load externally generated tab separated data and expressions into excel cell ranges. I export named range tables so my external code can inter-operate with Excel 2011. The macros I wrote to do all this in Excel 2011 don't run correctly in Excel 2016. I need a comprehensive Macro/VBA migration guide. I can't switch to 2016 until these macros have been ported.

  20. VBA compatibility between Office 2016(16.16...) and Office 2019 (16.26)

    I recently notice that files saved with Office 2016 do not work on Office 2019 (16.26) and vice et versa. Either crash or showing compilation error or internal errors with librairy. It was not the case with Office 2019 (16.25).
    Please fix...
