Add Evaluate Formula to Mac app
Please add the evaluate formula dialogue box to the mac app. With it you can evaluate a formula step by step and see which part of the formula works and where the problem is.
Thanks for all your comments and votes supporting this suggestion. We are in the planning stages for this feature to be added to Excel for Mac.
Thanks – Steve K [MS Excel]
What's the update on this? 11/20/20 and still no evaluate formula in Excel for Mac (Version 16.43.1).
We can only hope this makes it to a PMT somewhere in Redmond. Come on, folks, This can't be a huge feature. Breakdown the work and use the work to even out your sprints. You've already got a roadmap for UI with the Windows version. It probably won't even require a designer.
It's astounding and disappointing that Microsoft has chosen not to implement this feature. It's a clear necessity for their customers.
Where is it?
Are you guys sleeping!
This is honestly unbelievable in the span of a month (4 uni classes) I have voted on more than 10 requests and 75% of my class time is the prof trying to troubleshoot for us Mac users!!! AAAAAND this is after we downloaded the desktop version!
It is surreal how much we pay for Uni and then in turn how much the Unis pay Microsoft to use their software that is filled with issues??? WE R ONLINE!!! We can’t even go to the uni library and work out the issue on a Windows.
When u r trying to do ur uni class but cant cuz Microsoft is clearly biased against Mac users. Can’t wait to come back here after 5 mins to vote on another feature cuz Excel is soooo limited on a Mac
I'm trying to do my excel homework for a college excel class. I'm on a mac, and I have to use a virtual desktop for windows so that I can open my excel file and use the "Evaluate Formula" feature, which is ridiculous. Why is there a difference between Windows and Mac excel versions? Why aren't they exactly the same?
This feature must be added
This is unreal. please add.
Can we speed up the planning process? Because I feel like this is a simple add and not something that takes 5 years to add to Excel for Mac. Thanks, Steve K.
If you need help, then I think you could hire anyone of the 720 people to help you work/test this feature on this thread.
I hope all 720 of you vote for:
Its been 5 years since this struggle guys!
Technology is going outerspace and we are still cripplied by favoritism in developing adequate software capabilities.
Does it take 2 years to just plan this feature?
Have you added it yet and kept it invisible just to ***** with us?
Ha ha. I'm yet waiting for 2 years and I will spend at least 2 years more ?

Is this happening soon or what? I was very surprised to find it's still not available for Mac.
How can this possibly take so long for a feature which is standard in the windows version?
Adam Reid commented
Was staggered to find out that this wasn't included in Excel for Mac. It is essential when checking for any errors in a spreadsheet. The product owner comment about states that it is in the planning stages and this was more than 2 years ago. Surely it doesn't take 2+ years to plan the integration of an ALREADY EXISTING FEATURE in a version of your programme.
Extremely annoyed and cannot see a reason for this other than someone at Microsoft having the crazy idea that this will make someone switch to a Windows PC

WPS Office has this feature. It's free and a perfect replacement for Microsoft Office Suite.
Evaluate Formula is an absolutely essential feature of excel. Its impossible to get your formulas right without it. Microsoft, are you thinking that withholding this feature will convert people to Windows? Don't be ridiculous.
To the folks proposing using arixcel: come on guys, it only works on windows. Why are you wasting people's time?
Help says that this option is available, but it is not. That is such weak programming and discourteous to your users. Get this done or update Help, so you aren't sending your customers on a wild goose chase.
