    Thanks for posting about this issue. It would be very helpful if you would provide more information and screen shots to show how the words appear in Word and PowerPoint so that we can see the difference in Excel.

    Also, if you could provide a small example of the keystrokes that are used to enter one of the words on a US English keyboard (set to Myanmar or Myanmar QWERTY), it will be very helpful.

  3. Changing default font for new Notes/Comments.

    Would like to see a way to change/update the default font & formatting within New Notes/Comments text. Thank you for any consideration.

  7. 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.

  8. Online security is as important as any other security

    Web-based threats are lurking at every digital corner. Online security is as important as any other security. Cybercriminals are smart enough to trick you into revealing your sensitive information. It indicates the need for an advanced Antivirus security suite such as McAfee and Bitdefender. These two powerful Antivirus software give complete protection to your devices such as mobile phones, laptops, computers, etc., from cyber thieves, viruses, malware, spyware, and other cyber threats. The quick scanning and behavioral detection features of McAfee and Bitdefender not just detect the existing malware on the device but prevent the entry of external threats too.…

  9. Splitting characters in a cell with a fixed width automatically

    When you have a number like 234500006666.... very very long... and you want to separate it into different columns with a fixed width doing it manually might take a while. If you put a small box there that automatically divides the intervals regularly it will make it much much easier.

  11. Grouping

    When grouping rows or columns, it would be nice if the +/- sign (to un-/hide them) would be at the beginning and not at the end of the selected rows (columns)

  12. Add the AA notation for number format ie aa ab ac ad ae number for format

    The “aa” notation
    A better solution is the combination of the two: single letter notation up until (but not including) quadrillion and a two letter representation of scientific notation after trillion. It may sound confusing, but you’ll agree that it’s actually rather clear when you see it in action:

    Number Written Scientific Single letter “aa”
    1 one 1 1 1
    1.000 one thousand 1×103 1k 1k
    1.000.000 one million 1×106 1m 1m
    1.000.000.000 one billion 1×109 1b 1b
    1.000.000.000.000 one trillion 1×1012 1t 1t
    1.000.000.000.000.000 one quadrillion 1×1015 1q 1aa
    1.000.000.000.000.000.000 one quintillion 1×1018 1? 1ab
    So, one quadrillion (1015)…

  13. Online security is as important as any other security

    The Internet is surging with digital threats. Every other device is under attack either by some cybercriminal or malicious software. It is high time that we must install McAfee Antivirus software to protect our devices and data from web-based threats. McAfee offers a number of advanced versions that you can select from. Once you choose the compatible product, visit the site mcafee.com/activate to activate the purchased product.

  14. Is there a way to truncate a column of cells in Excel ?

    In Google Sheets, there is a nice function to format a column so that the words don't bleed over to the next column if there are blanks in the next column. It is part of a user-friendly icon menu that allows the user to: wrap text, truncate text or continue text to next column.

  17. Microsoft Office undoubtedly provides one of the best productivity

    Microsoft Office undoubtedly provides one of the best productivity toolkits and software. Each of its applications like MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint serves specific purposes. It also includes in-built features like MS Teams and cloud storage to enhance your productivity even more. If you purchase the MS Office 2019, it will be a one-time purchase but if you go for MS Office 365, it will be a subscription-based plan. These are the latest MS Office suites that will offer excellent results. You can know more about these products by visiting the site https://us9office.com/ .

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

  19. Change Default Currencies in Dropdown Menu Excel

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to change the default currencies I see listed in the dropdown menu for currencies.

    I'm in the EURO zone. Microsoft has decided I see GBPound/Euro/RMB/CHF which makes no sense to me! I never EVER use the Swiss Franc or Chinese RMB, while the USD is not in there... ????

    It should be such an easy software adjustment to select your own currencies (and order) of which currencies show in the dropdown menu. Why have currencies in shortcuts that do nothing to help the user?

  20. "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!
