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 your support for this issue. While we do have it on our to-do list, we don’t expect to add this in the short-term, so we’re marking it Not at this time. We’ll continue to monitor the votes on it.
Add Evaluate Formula to Mac app asap, please!
Any updates on if this will be added for Mac soon? It's been almost 3 years since the last update.
Hey can we get this added please
The note in 2018 says is in the planning stages to be added. When will it be added? This feature is extremely helpful with formulas which contain multiple nestings.

Please add the evaluate formula and watch window to Mac. It is one of the most useful tools in the box. It is very difficult to see an error sometimes (especially when one has been working for hours, is tired, and needs to get the job done. Automation helps tremendously. 1/25/2021

When I started using a Mac in 2012, I noticed on my first day that the Evaluate formula function was missing. I found several long-standing discussions with Microsoft going back to 2008 related to raising the concern and Microsoft was "working on it" in various "phases". I added my kind request to have them prioritize this feature ASAP. I have followed up many times since then. I don't know how clearer it can be made that Microsoft does not want this feature for Mac users. They have not been "working on it" for 12 years. Simply put, they just don't care about Mac users or this would have been taken care of a decade ago.
Is there a possibility now to evaluate auditing on mac? If not, it would be great to have this.
This particular request is the 4th Top request on this site https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/304933-excel-for-mac/filters/top. It is also the top request of those items currently in Planning Status https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/304933-excel-for-mac/filters/top?status_id=1406090
Come on everyone make sure you are voting for this request.
Microsoft this is a much-needed requirement for all types of users. Many professionals I know are continually frustrated at not being able to check long formulae. What is the issue stopping you replicating the Windows functionality? Surely this one little piece of code can be created with all the experience and skills your employees have.

Come on Steve K, is Microsoft ever going to add this functionality?
In the planning stage for nearly 3 years - really. Without this extremely useful functionality, Mac users around the world continue to be limited in what they do.
If I was a conspiracy theorist I may even think Microsoft are deliberately not adding this functionality.
So many new non-core items of functionality have been added in the last 3 years, yet we still can't check a formula!!!
Please please please Microsoft get this out of planning and execute the change.

Please add the evaluate formula for Mac. It is quite inconvenient for us to work in Excel without this feature, especially for long formulas. Thank you.

Please add the evaluate formula for Mac
Still not part of Excel for MAC, what is the reason ?!
Chris Garland commented
Please add this important feature!
Jacqueline Hart commented
This is ridiculous!!! There's not reason for not to have the same functions in Mac.
Please add the evaluate formula for Macbook users. It would greatly help in understanding complex Excel formulas.

It will be great if the Evaluate formula option is added to Excel for Mac
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!
