  1. Ability to select multiple files or clear all files under the Recent Tab of the Welcome Splash Screen?

    I just want to know if you add a feature that lets all users select multiple files or clear all files under the Recent tab of the Start Screen of Microsoft Office Suite programs, what do you think?

  2. Quick Access Toolbar Items

    The items put on the quick access toolbar (QAT) are not accessible at all. For example, I cannot press save, save as, print, print as, sort, etc. at all. I cannot save using save button from QAT. I mean I can press those buttons but nothing is happening at all.
    I am using the latest Microsoft 365 Family package (16.40, 03 weeks ago) on a MacBook Pro 15" 2015.

  3. Bring back "Page Setup" button in the Print menu (used to be under Quick Preview)

    One could invoke Page Setup directly before printing and adjust based on Preview. As it is now, you would need to go back into the Page Layout menu and then return to the Print menu.

  8. I can't create Queries with Excel 2016 :(

    Hello I'm trying to create queries on my Macbook Pro 16" from 2019 using excel for mac version 16.36.
    When I try the standard procedure, copy/past a link in a Word file saved as a Text file replacing .txt by .iqy, and then try to run it via excel the .iqy file is not even reachable.
    You can see on the screen shot I took that the **** document can not even be opened. If anyone has an idea of how to fix this it would be great.
    Thank you for your help

  11. Fix the bug that makes the curser disappear when using enter button instead of clicking on Ok button in InputBox or MsgBox

    I have an issue with the inputbox and msgbox. When I run the macro involving a msgBox or InputBox, if I press the enter button the curser disappears. If I use the mouse to click okay or cancel it seems to work fine. Is there a way you can look into this issue?

  13. Open UTF-8 .csv

    When opening UTF-8 encoded CSVs, text is still garbled, despite the previous issue raising this concern (below) being marked as completed - Excel fails to recognise the UTF-8 encoding.

  16. Clicking on the validation list arrow do not update the cells

    Excel for mac do not execute formula when you click on the arrow of a validation list, but on the windows it runs normal. It is very important to me.

    To reproduce:

    1 - On the B1 cell put the formula: =A1
    2 - Make a list with 2 (or more) items
    3 - On the A1 cell, register a validation list with the list created on the step 2

    Ok, now, anything you write on the cell A1, will be replicated to B1.
    But, when you write something on the A1, and click on the arrow of the validation…

  17. Excel for Mac Setting paper size

    change paper size and allow excel to remember the change for future printing. Currently if a page is set to US and I have to change it to A4 I must do this each time I print. Excel for Mac does not remember my last paper setting for the workbook.

  18. find function shows total

    When you search within excel, show the total number of cells that return that value, and highlight them for easier finding/searching rather than just a grey line around the box.

  19. Export multiple individual sheets to .CSV files.

    I have a workbook with multiple (hundreds) sheets. I'd like to save the sheets as individual *.csv files, each with the name of the sheet. This will be a great improvement to my work. Thanks.

  20. 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.
