  1. Move / Copy of a worksheet within a workbook doesn't appear to work in Excel 2016 for Mac.

    Move / Copy of a worksheet within a workbook doesn't appear to work in Excel 2016 for Mac.
    I right-click on the tab of a worksheet, select 'Move / Copy" and nothing happens. No matter where I click, I hear a pop noise. Have to shut down Excel to get back into the file.

  2. Specifications and limits

    Post "Specifications and limits" that explicitly apply to Excel for Mac 2016, or explicitly state that currently-posted "Specifications and limits" attributed to a different version or platform ALSO apply to Excel for Mac 2016.

    I recall MS promulgating "Specifications and limits" for various versions of Excel since at least the early-mid-90s. However, I currently cannot find such a posting explicitly associated with the aforementioned Excel version. The most similar versions for which I've found "Specifications and limits" pages include...
    - Excel for Mac 2011...https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Specifications-and-limits-for-Excel-2011-5DE84162-0301-422B-B1DE-C11D89120C76
    - Excel 2016-2013 (implicitly for Windows)...https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Excel-specifications-and-limits-1672b34d-7043-467e-8e27-269d656771c3

  3. Crashing

    I have lost my data for my physics laboratory. Now I have nothing to turn in. Where is my file? It is due Tuesday Morning. This is not the first time this has happened. I love excel I really do, but I can't keep restarting my labs just because excel decided to completely delete my file off my computer. There is no trace of it whatsoever except the one graph I managed to get onto my report on a word document.

  6. Zoomed/Expanded Window on App Launch

    Any chance to have excel launch in an zoomed/expanded window by default instead of the smaller window it always opens in? A bit annoying having to double click the top of the app to expand the window every time. Thanks.

  7. Cannot move a range of cells by dragging

    Excel 15.36 on Sierra 10.12.6.
    I can no longer select a range of cells and move the range to a different location by dragging. The “little hand” does not appear when I hover over the edge of the range. I am sure that this was working previously on an earlier update. This is very frustrating.

  8. How do I stop receiving email updates about an issue?

    How do I stop receiving email updates about an issue? I click unsubscribe and all that does is take me to the Excel Suggestion Box page. There is no place there to unsubscribe.

  9. カメラアプリの選択

    Excelアプリで挿入、カメラ、でのカメラアプリの選択を提案します。その理由として、カメラのシャッター音の大きさにあります。静かな場所やオフィスで大きなシャッター音には非常に困っています。わざわざマナーカメラで写真を撮り挿入するのは効率が悪い。カメラアプリを指定できればその煩わしさも無くなります。
    私は現在iPad proを使っています。

  10. Fill cells with a series by using the fill handle doesn't work since Update 15.35.0

    Please excuse my poor english.
    In one of Your descriptions it is called

    6. You can also specify the type of series by using the right mouse button to drag the fill handle over the range and then clicking the appropriate command on the shortcut menu.

    but it doesn't work anymore since the last Update.
    If You do so, a new window is open.

    You will see on the attached file.

    I hope You would be able to recognise an fix it.

  14. Add instruction manual secondary axis

    (Before I start, excuse me for my bad English :)).

    Yesterday I tried to add a secondary axis. I read a lot of manuals but these were not for Excel Mac 2016 (365 subscription). After an hour we discovered that you need to select the data in the chart itself and then you have the option to add a secondary axis. Maybe it's an idea to describe this better in the help function or online?

  17. Can the 2016 version and return to the 2011 version. You have seriously messed up a good thing. I wasted my money on Office 2016.

    Can the 2016 version and return to the 2011 version. You have seriously messed up a good thing. I wasted my money on Office 2016. There are too many issues to describe them here.

  18. AutoUpdate isn't Auto if we have to push DONE.

    Microsoft AutoUpdate keeps asking me if I want to Auto update. When I say yes (each time), it downloads stuff, does stuff, and then waits for me to push the Done button. (each time)

    Turning on Autoupdate should mean that I never hear from it again. JUST DO IT!

  19. Office 14.7.4 doesn't install properly on Mac

    The latest update for Microsoft Office for Mac 14.7.4 will download but won't install on my Mac. I keep getting a message to please close Microsoft Excel even when the application is closed. 'Retry" doesn't work. I have to hit "Skip". It finishes downloading. I hit 'Done'. It automatically checks for updates, and the same update appears since it was never installed. The download file never appears anywhere on my desktop like it supposed to do in order to click and install it. I know Mac is a competitor, but please fix your produce or just don't offer it to…
