  2. Support Internet Query Connection (.iqy files)

    It would be helpful for Excel to Mac to support internet query connections.

    When exporting a list from Sharepoint, the .iqy file is downloaded, which I subsequently can't open in Excel for Mac.

  5. Allow 'Refresh All' Functionality in the Data Tab to pull fresh data from External Sources like Windows allows

    Excel on IOS currently does not support the functionality to pull data from external sources e.g Stock prices, FX Rates , table imports from the web.

  9. Provide data get and tranform including JSON to Excel transformation

    This feature is provided with Windows Excel 2016 but not with Mac. Isn't it time to make the Mac software a first-class citizen with Microsoft. It seems like forever that Microsoft started supporting Mac Office, yet it still does not have all the features. Why not? I am paying you every month. Yet you still don't provide many advanced features. I will consider Pages then.

  10. the excel auto save is slow to up date as changes are made. Should improve this process to respond quickly

    excel should be able to import word or power point docs to intergrate together.
    This would allow to produce solid intergrated documents & presentations.
    This option should be available to insert excel sheets/tables into word documents as well.

  11. Import XML into excel

    I need to import a structured xml file into excel. The xml file contains elements which contain other elements. I'd be happy to define a mapping which would excel allow to know, which elements/attributes to put into which column. The File I'd like to import is attached. However, this is jus one example.

  17. When opening a CSV file, make Excel recognise it as a CSV file!

    Currently when I import data from a CSV file, Excel doesn't recognise that it is CSV even though the file name ends in ".csv"! I have to tell the program that the data file has delimited fields and define the separator as comma for it to import the data correctly. Surely this is basic stuff for a program like Excel?

  18. I would like a stable service - not to be treated as a paying guide pig for Microsoft to try out new ideas, like deleting Forms.

    I would like a stable service - not to be treated as a paying guide pig for Microsoft to try out new ideas, like deleting Forms. If Microsoft want to trail stuff and take away functionality they shouldn't be doing it to the people who pay them each year via 365
