  1. Historical volatility for stockhistory function

    It would be great if stockhistory function provided HISTORICAL VOLATILITY for a certain asset on a daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly or even on an annualized basis.

  8. Use Python for the scripting language instead of inventing a new one

    Python seems to be the universal choice for scripting languages these days, except Microsoft. I think more people would use Office products if they already knew how to program them. Please don't develop your own language. It's a waste of your time and mine.

  10. Stacking Tabs

    Usability: I need 23 different sheets/categories to track my finances. This results in 23 tabs, which overflow outside the window and which makes it cumbersome to switch between sheets. A BETTER solution would be to allow the tabs to be stacked into 2 horizontal rows - one on top of the other. Then instead of many mouse clicks, just one! Great.

  11. If I have a repeating row at top of page, the selected cell outline disappears immediately

    On Excel 16.46 365 / Catalina - when I go to highlight cells to type in or insert or delete, the outline immediately disappears, if I remove the repeating row I set up in Page Set Up / Sheet then the problem goes away - but I NEED my repeating row. I had Mojave and had same problem, only thing that worked was going to 15.44 vers but now I am on Catalina and afraid to go t Big Sur after reading so many other issues.

  14. Money for Excel - Can't Add Credit Cards or Assets

    I've been trying to use the new Money for Excel template/macro you've provided. It will only accept bank accounts, regardless of whether using Windows 10 or Mac OS. This makes it a totally unusable application. Thank you for bringing this application forward, but it just doesn't work properly. Please add the ability to add assets, credit cards, and other common financial tools.

  16. Have a "no action" case for an if statement

    I have a need for a cell to be empty to allow the neighboring cell's text to spill over if the formula returns a false value.

  17. Make decimal separator selectable

    In Excel Windows you can choose between point or comma as decimal separator. In Excel Mac you cannot. About half of the world uses comma like Sweden and imported documents from the U.S. and some other countries always cause a lot of problems. So please let me set point or comma as decimal separator for each document.

    The ideal solution would of course be a new separator that would be standard all over the world and Microsoft together with international bodies.

  19. Fix VBE

    Many issues with VBE including...

    When adding part of a line of code in the editor such as select case<space> and then I pause to think auto syntax checking seems to run (even if its turned off in preferences and irrespective of whether I'm in design mode)
    The result is that the line turns red and the space is removed. The consequence is that as I type the next part of the statement the space is removed and I end up with a syntax error.
    This issue is irrespective of where I save the document (OneDrive, iCloud or local to…

  20. cm-inches to pixels cross-platform bug

    excel file created in windows and opened on mac shows different pixels column width and rows height. this relults in a different pages scale when you open mac-created excel file on windows and vice-versa.
    even on a new file row height is similar in CM, but different in pixels (HOW??), while column width is different in both CM and pixels (on a new file without any edits!!!)
