  1. Fix ability to open XML files

    Up until Dec 2018 I was able to open an XML file directly in Mac Excel. Last week in Dec and still now I get this message: The file you are trying to open is not a valid Excel XML Spreadsheet.
    I am currently at Mac Excel version 16.20 (181208)

  3. MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO DISABLE RECENT!!!!

    Since the last update (today is 190826) for every document you have had opened (recent) it will look/freeze for approx 5sec for EVERY LINK. How can you release something like this and still no fix! I PAID FOR SOFTWARE, AND ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY. Time to leave office like I left Windows.... Its the same in the other Office apps.

  4. Important functionalities that appear and disappear, between updates.

    What happen again with PASTE WITHOUT FORMAT? (Option+Shift+Command+V), it’s so useful, and
    What happened with move around the Sheet with trackpad gesture with 2 fingers?

    You must have a defined application programming line, good things appear and disappear between an update and another.

    These functionalities (explained their disappearance in the first paragraph) are preserved by both Word and PowerPoint, I don't understand why they aren't transverse to all applications and maintain homogeneity in your products.

    I don't know if this is read by someone, or has any repercussion on the product, but at least I comply with informing about a…

  6. Fix Copy > Paste Link..

    Repeatedly get an error message (Alert - Unable to paste link) when I use Copy > Paste Link from one sheet to another in the same workbook. I'm using latest Office 365 version of Excel on my Mac
    This is causing me to lose considerable productive time.
    Please can this be fixed?

  7. I found what I think is a significant bug in Excel for Mac 16.29.1. I would like to show it to MS. How?

    In some cases adding two numbers gives an incorrect result. A digit incorrectly shows up in the 12th decimal position in the result when adding two numbers that are truncated to just two decimal places. The xlsx file attached shows an example. I'm attaching a PDF of the same file to show these results in case another version of Excel gives different results with the xlsx file.

  9. Problème avec la VBA a solutionner, plus d'ouverture de fichiers contenant du code

    A chaque ouverture de fichier j'ai un message d'erreur
    Désolé... Nous avons trouvé un problème dans le contenu de « 201808 - Perte de charge réseau de chaleur.xlsm », mais nous pouvons essayer de récupérer le maximum de contenu. Si la source de ce classeur est fiable, cliquez sur Oui.
    Si je réponds "OUI" je peut ouvrir et le fichier incriminé et le fichier xml qui m'est proposé.
    Dans le fichier xml on voit que c'est tout le VBA qui est supprimé
    J'ai des centaines de fichiers qui posent problème car j'utilise très souvent le VBA

  10. VBA-Programm stoppen

  11. Freeze Panes/Group Columns Error.

    I am having an issue where freeze panes in tandem with a group of hidden columns that is causing the spreadsheet to be locked from moving to the right. I can move up and down on the sheet, but I cannot move to the right.

    So:
    1-5 and A thru H frozen. Columns I through AR in a collapsible group. When the collapsible group is opened, the sheet will no longer move right past column W. I can no longer view the data in columns W through AR.

  12. Fix copy & paste bug when Handoff (Universal Clipboard) is enabled

    When Handoff is enabled (which also enables Universal Clipboard) and you are signed in to iCloud on your Mac and a nearby iPhone or iPad, Excel will freeze when you try to copy any cell. The spinning beachball will appear for 3-4 seconds and you can't do anything while this is happening. The bug also affects Word. This happens even on a Clean Installed system so it is not a 3rd party conflict.

    I've posted more details and a video of this happening on the Microsoft Community Forums:

    I've tried to report this bug but it seems impossible to…

  14. Please fix this: Margins do not fit page size

    Office 365 for Mac/Excel. I just want to create an invoice on 1 page, save it as a PDF and or at least print it to one page. For a time the workaround was working but now I can't do anything. May need to copy the data into Google sheets and use that. Why am I even paying for Office 365 if it can't perform a basic task like this.

  15. Mail merge bug in Excel/Word 365 for Mac: Word can't see Excel cells with formula results over 250 characters

    When I use an Excel sheet/project as source of data for mail merge in Word, Word can't see the result values of formula cells, if the result is over 250 characters (text). The result in Word, doesn't show anything for that field and even blocks data for all of the next records (rows in excel). The only solution is saving the excel sheet as a .csv file and use that as the data source in Words mail merge. Cells in excel that don't have a formula and just text of more than 250 characters, works fine. So the bug is…

  19. Bulk delete of recents in v16

    It is ridiculous that bulk 'recents' cannot be removed from Excel for Mac v16. In a very productive environment, this is too time-consuming to remove them one by one.

  20. The min function needs to work in tables that update. Currently they drop one row (result) and repeat the largest result in the new result.

    I need a way to sort the data from the data entry column in a table on a nother column in ascending order. Min does not work. The new row repeats the highest results and the column drops a row. For example, imin($A$1:$A$22, $A$1:A1) in a table on a Mac does not work after adding a few numbers in A, the data entry column
