  2. pivottable and pivotchart wizard is not available on mac excel 16 version

    We could not open pivottable and pivotchart wizard on mac Excel 16 version. It is make our job hard to update pivot table.

    We need to install office 2011 to run the report.
    Is there any possible you could add the feature in to mac version of Excel? And we notice pivottable and pivotchart wizard function is works on windows system.

    We believe there is way to add this comment to the mac version excel.
    and could you please add it in?

    We really don't want to keep switch different version of excel or jump in windows system to run…

  3. pivottable and pivotchart wizard is not available on mac excel 16 version

    There is no option to open pivottable and pivotchart wizard on Mac Excel 16 version. It make us very hard to update pivot table data.

  4. Stop removing leading zeros

    Our inventory system is ruined because we've just discovered that Excel removes leading zeros from barcodes (in fact leading zeros from all numbers) when you import or paste-in.

    This is truly mind-numbing because...
    1) You're running data - why would you ever do this?
    2) You always discover this nonsense after the fact with is so frickin' painful.

    For the love of God, why do this and why change stuff automatically with no user input or notification? Get it sorted.

  6. Insert Data from Picture was great.

    I paid for the full licensed retail version of Excel 2019, which included Insert Data from Picture. Then, several months later, the feature was unceremoniously removed. I actually wasted a lot of time trying to figure out how to get it back. I've since discovered that it is now only available for Microsoft 365 subscriptions, rather than for retail licenses. The problem is, I didn't buy some shareware or freemium software. I purchased a full Excel package, and it's really upsetting to have Microsoft nerf my software, after it is paid for. And at the minimum it wasn't disclosed as…

  7. Allow MM/DD/YY as a default date format

    Allow us to set the date format somewhere! I like to use MM/DD/YY format, to keep columns neat and tidy.

  8. Best Gemstone Testing and Identification?

    Lab testing is very important before any gemstone or diamond is bought, it has to be certified from a good laboratory. Consumers should be wary when buying gemstones and diamonds and not fall prey to advertising tactics like celebrity endorsements, offers, and discounts; the only way to be absolutely certain is to demand an appropriate government lab certificate, which clearly states the authenticity of the gemstone and any treatments it may have undergone.

  9. Money in Excel Manual Accounts Add Orange County Credit Union to Money in Excel

    Add Orange County Credit Union (OCCU) to Money in Excel Financial Institutions (https://www.orangecountyscu.org)

    Money in Excel doesn't show OCCU in Financial Institutions list from Plaid. I've been able to previously add account via login link from other Plaid applications.

    Adding manual accounts via institutions login URL would be a nice as an interim solution while waiting for support for these accounts.

  10. Freeze-calc: Select areas of cells to freeze recalculation

    The workaround now is to "paste values" on top of your formulas for the biggest part of your sheet. But then you may need to copy them back. A simple freeze-unfreeze button could do the work. It would also be nice if these cells were marked somehow (e.g. with an ice-blue triangle in the bottom right corner - same as the green one for the cells with comments).

  14. "Paste Number Formats only" in Paste Special Submenu

    This is totally missing! You can Paste VALUES with Number Formats, or FORMULAS with Number Formats, or ALL Formats including borders, backgrounds and foreground colours, but you CANNOT Paste Number Formats ONLY! Most of my wasted time in Excel is from this tedious task! There should definitely be an option for "Number Formats Only" in the Paste Special Submenu, if not a "Number Format Painter" as well!

  20. In the sheets at the bottom of the page it would be nice to be able to scroll through them all using the the trackpad.

    Make it possible to use the track pad to scroll back and forth through the sheets when there is too many to show on one page.
