  1. Changes to VLOOKUP/HLOOKUP

    I suggest 2 changes in Vlookup/Hlookup:

    A. VLOOKUP/HLOOKUP functions user can only search for the lookup value in the first column/row, and the result column/row is always after (right/bleow) the lookup column/row.
    I suggest to make it more flexible by letting the user decide which column to search in and which columns to retrieve the value from.

    B. Sometimes user need to drag lookup function to several columns and needs the column index to be incremented, for example to be 3 in the first column, the second column to be 4 and so on, I suggest to add new parameter…

  2. In Excel for Mac, fix the issue that the characters on the formula bar get corrupted when pasting a folder name in a cell

    Copying a folder name and pasting it in a cell may not be a common operation, but sometimes we do so.
    Therefore, it would be great if you could fix the issue that the characters on the formula bar get corrupted in the operation above.
    This issue has not been fixed for a long time and is always reproducible.

  3. Make Microsoft Excel for Mac EXACTLY THE SAME as Microsoft Excel for PC.

    If Mac subscribers of Office 365 are getting less features and PC subscribers, prorate the Mac annual subscription accordingly. If not, MAKE BOTH VERSIONS OF EXCEL HAVE THE SAME MENU FEATURES!

  4. Data Validation to hold New dynamic Arrays function in Validation list

    Current Scenario
    While using the dynamic arrays formula in data validation list is not returning the arrays values, we need when enter the dynamic arrays formula in a column then call the arrays using # in data validation

    Requested Solution
    Allowing user to use the dynamic arrays formula in the data validation directly instead of using the helper column.

  6. Need a way to turn off a recurring disclaimer after it presents itself a few times

    I've started using the Stocks data types and now all workbooks that have them get the disclaimer banner on each sheet every time I open it up. After seeing it a few times, the user needs to have a way to turn it off. Otherwise , it just an annoyance. Thank you.

  10. Allow row-column comparisons as include parameter of FILTER()

    I really love the new dynamic arrays.

    However, the FILTER Function does not fully leverage on dynamic arrays in the include parameter, which requires returning to autofill :(

    Given that I have a two columns of data "bar" (B4#) and "baz" (C4#).

    I already extracted the unique values in the "baz" column using the UNIQUE Function and transposed it into a row in F3#.

    Now I would like to extract the corresponding values in "bar" using the following FILTER call in F4

    =FILTER(B4#, C4# = F3#)

    I would expect this to create a matrix of the corresponding values because C4#…

  11. partial text string match using an if statement

    I would like to be able to use a formula to match partial text from a column using an if statement as criteria to enter text from a column heading in another column. I have a sample file attached. You can see that I have entered the text in the columns I want. I use a filter and search to do this, but it takes a long time and is very repetitive.

  12. Add time (hours, etc) capability to STOCKHISTORY function

    This function would be highly improved if it could compute even lower intervals (hourly, etc.) as stock prices can change significantly throughout the day. The start/end date arguments could change to start/end time and the intervals argument could include hourly. I'm not sure how stable adding even smaller intervals (minutes, seconds) would be as that would result in extremely large arrays. Thanks for considering!

  15. Problème de syntaxe "DATEDIF"

    Bonjour, j'utilise Excel sur PC iMac.
    J'ai un problème, je souhaite utiliser la syntaxe DATEDIF, mais cette dernière n'apparait pas dans la bibliothèque des formules et lorsque je la rédige elle ne fonctionne pas.
    J'ai été en relation avec un conseiller via LogMeRescue, qui n'est pas parvenu à résoudre mon problème.
    Merci de bien vouloir m'apporter une solution.

  18. Have UNIQUE() optionally ignore blanks

    The new UNIQUE(), SORT() and SORTBY() functions are incredibly useful and they save a lot of time. It would be helpful though to allow UNIQUE() to optionally ignore blanks. I use UNIQUE() to build named arrays dynamically which I can use as a validation list for data validation. At the moment I have to create the list (e.g. SORT(UNIQUE(<some column in a table>)) and then created a Name using OFFSET() to ignore the blank at the start of the sorted list.

  19. Put back subtext when building formulas

    Put back subtext when building formulas. The text that lets you know where you are in the formula.
    Examples from previous editions: "argument", "value if true", "value if false"...

  20. Function for Classifying data as ABC instead of a series of "if cell in range A; classA; if cell in range B; classB...."

    Using Frequency function, you can input a list of classes then compute the occurrencies of data selected as a matrix formula. What about classifying each item in the data interval in the class computed?
    Instead of a series of "if data in rangeA; classA; if data in rangeB; classB;0;0...), why not using the same list of classes for a new function CLOOKUP or CASEIF(cell;classMatrix;classNameColumnIndex;<= or <upper range limit).
    Examples: Pareto analisys, ABC, Inventory Cross analisys, Data stratification
