  1. Obtaining Hang Seng Index from the Stocks module

    I am using Excel for Mac, version 16.30 (always updated to the latest version)

    I can easily obtain stock quotes all index members of the Dow Jones, Hang Seng Index, Swiss Market Index. Also to retrieve the index quotes for DJIA, S&P500, DAX, etc. is not an issue at all.

    Obtaining the quote for the Hang Seng Index itself I haven't figured out for a couple of months already.

    “HSI” returns "H.I.S. Co Ltd (OTCM:HISJF)” “Hang Seng” returns “No results found for Hang Seng” “^HSI” returns results such as H-Source Holdings, etc.

    I have reached out to Microsoft calling the…

  3. Temporary stored files during saving Excel file cannot be deleted on NAS - .xlsx.sb

    since the update to Mojave, Excel documents store repeatedly (not all files) temporary folders which are not deleted on NAS when one opens them with Microsoft Office 2016. This behavior seems related to the content within the Excel files. It looks like that as long as no diagram is saved in the Excel document the associated temporary file will be deleted as intended.

    But if diagrams ore a more complex document structure is being created in the documents, then apparently not only temporary documents but folders are created during saving. After closing the document, you can no longer delete the…

  4. Copy Format by taking (with mouse) the left corner of the cell

    As well as you may copy the complete cell selecting the bottom-rigth corner, with this new feature you may be able to copy both; only the format or only the values (your choise on settings) by using the "upper left corner".

  5. Allow images to be inserted/embedded into comments and notes.

    Please allow this desperately requested feature, as most Microsoft Excel users need to annotate their spreadsheets with images.

    For example, I have a spreadsheet comparing possible travel routes for a trip I am planning. I would like to insert a screenshot of a receipt into a comment/note so I can easily "hide" it or view/"show" it, as needed.

    The value of having images within comments/notes is that they will remain linked to the associated box. This would be extremely helpful for spreadsheets containing multiple images.

  7. Find

    Why after so many years of people requesting that Find All button be added to the Find dialog box in Mac Excel version it's still not there? How difficult is it just to add a button?

  8. Sheet numbers change as you drag the formulae down

    Can there please be the ability to drag the below function down the column and the sheet number changes automatically only. The '$' sign fixes the cell but I need the ability for the sheet number to change automatically in numerical order as I have over 200 rows and 25 columns to change manually!!

    ='18'!$B$3

  10. Please don't bar people from using all functions on Office Home & Student 2016 for Mac

    As a student, I have purchased a lifetime license for Microsoft products. It seems ridiculous that I am barred from using functions such as "MAXif". Why can't all functions be made available? I am sure NO company will get rich making extra $ from students in this manner. This is so sad.

  11. In Office 2011 for Mac in the pulldown File menu under Recent the user has the option to Clear Recent. This option does not exist in Office

    In Office 2011 for Mac in the pulldown File menu the user had the option to Clear Recent. This option is missing in Office 2016. It was a useful feature. You should put it back.

  12. Repetitiveness in the process of a Time Trial Worksheet.

    I'm making a document for data consisting of time trials. However when Adding the time trials together, it has to be in a certain conditional format. And its inconvenient, repetitive, and time-wasting to put multiple 0s for everything to find averages, and sums of my time trails. ex. 0:04:32

    I feel this may be a quick fix. Would appreciate the effort.

  14. Make all functions and tools available for both Mac and Windows OPS.

    Why can't all the same tools be accessed on different operating systems? I don't get it I am in college and this is a constant problem. Not everyone using this program has Windows as their operating system. Why even offer it to download on other operating systems if all the tools won't be accessible. Today, I was trying to use the forecast sheet function and that is not available on my Mac, yet all the other forecast functions to make formulas are there. It just doesn't make sense.

  16. AutoFilter Spacebar Selector

    Like in Windows, it would be much faster to use keyboard shortcuts for things like selecting items in the AutoFilter list (i.e. using the space bar). As of today, you cannot highlight and select different items in the filter list without the mouse. Also annoying, is the fact that selections are applied instantly, causing nonsense CPU work and worse yet the window shifts in view as calculations are running. Messy.

  18. Mac OS update to Catalina

    Just ugraded to Catalina and now unable to use my Office package, contacted Microsoft and been told I need to pay and upgrade to 64 bit version, Catalina does not support 32 bit. I was happy with what I had and previously paid for. This is ridiculous surely office packages should be supported and future proofed against OS updates,
