  1. ADD OLAP support for Office 365 Excel

    Is it possible to have Office 365 Excel support OLAP?

    Personally, my work as a Data Analyst in my company is largely (in fact at all times) dependent on this feature. At the moment, I need to be moving with both Windows and Mac machines if I need to get work done on time.

  2. There are files that was created using the Excel 2011. When opening it in Excel 365, the highlighted texts are not all highlighted anymore.

  3. Select only visible cell as COMMAND+Shift+8

    On older versions of Mac Excel the key combination of COMMAND+SHIFT+8 would select only visible cells. Now (v.13.64) it does not. You need to press OPTIONS+;
    Please re-add this function back

  4. When editing in cell, please re-add COMMAND+A as a select all option

    On older version of Excel, when you were editing a formula in a cell, if you pressed COMMAND+A, all the text would be selected. Now, the same combination of keys does nothing.
    Please re-add this function!

  7. Excel freezes constantly - Cataline on 2012 Mac

    Excel is constantly freezing up after updating to Catalina OSX. I will force quite excel and open again and whenever I would click on a cell it just freezes, leaving no option but to quit excel and try again later. Some days it would work for longer than others. No such issue on Excel on Windows- very frustrating to deal with it as studies are heavily dependent on excel

  9. Increase number of rows that can be filtered to more than 100,000

    Increase number of rows that can be filtered to more than 100,000. 10,000 is way too small when we deal with our data base. Is there maybe a way to increase this manually ?

  10. Please rename AutoSave. People confuse it with AutoRecover

    People do not understand that AutoSave is a new feature for OneDrive and SharePoint. They constantly mistake it for AutoRecover. AutoSave should be renamed something like CloudVersions or CloudRestore to indicate that it involves only files saved to the cloud,

  11. Map charts: include Cyprus as part of Europe

    When creating a chloropleth map chart based on European Union data, we cannot set the map area to 'Multiple countries/regions'. We only have the options 'Automatic', 'Only regions with data' and 'World'; 'Automatic shows the world map.

    If the data point for Cyprus is removed, we are able to set the map area to 'Multiple countries/regions' and show Europe only, including countries for which there are no data. This suggests that Excel maps do not consider Cyprus to be part of Europe.

    As Cyprus is a member of the European Union, please update the map so that Europe includes Cyprus.

  12. My Excel 2016 is part of Office 365. Excel has stopped playing a sound on saving a file and it changes centimetres to inches. Can this stop

    My Excel 2016 is part of Office 365. Excel has stopped playing a sound on saving a workbook and it changes centimetres to inches. Can this be stopped? I can change this by going to General/Preferences and tick the play sound box and change inches to centimetres. But this is only while the workbook in use is open. After closing Excel reverts to no sound on saving and inches.

  14. Quit automatically hiding columns and allow the user to see their own data without "unhiding" what I never hid in the first place!

    Crazy, I know. Every time I work with my grade book I have to "Unhide" valuable information that the useful program thinks I don't need to see. I have added columns to the left in order to stop this, yet the dumb program keeps hiding the names of my teachers. Why can't I format the document to NEVER hide anything unless I ask it to?

  16. views

    Excel for Mac v16.34. When using Data > New Database Query > From Database (via ODBC), I'm seeing Tables listed in the Navigator treeview, but not Views. I can see that the dialog is calling the SQLTables() method, which results in both Show Tables; and Show Views; calls to my backend database (Snowflake), but I don't see the Views represented in the Treeview. I can execute SQL against the view, I just don't see them in the treeview.
    FWIW, this works perfectly in the Windows version of Excel.

  17. Allow "good morning" to be hidden

    The "good morning" on the home page of Excel (and other Office applications) feels very patronising and childish. Could we have an option to hide it please?

  18. Fix Conditional Formatting

    When rows are inserted into a worksheet with conditional formatting, the cell (or range) references in the conditional formatting change. Fix the system so that the insertion of a row or column into an area covered by conditional formatting adopts the format (this part may already be the case) AND the formatting cell range reference in the Conditional Formatting dialog box does not get fragmented addresses; the range stays the same.
