  5. Page set up

    Maybe you can add page layout lines for excel
    So the mobile users can determine the exact tables they can make for letter size or legal size or A4 size without going on print set up just to view the size they made

  6. Please include Wrap text for cells

    Wrap for cells would be really useful. It used to be present but seems to have disappeared.

  9. Add built in vba parser and interpreter so macros run properly. (Just a bit more time consuming than an ASM interpreter.)

    I think excel mobile could (and should) run macros. I could build a VBA interpreter for you...I've done a full ASM interpreter in several languages on codingame.com, it should be pretty easy to make one for VBA just way more time consuming. I have certificates for about 30 programming languages and have experience in about 20 of those.

  10. Allow subscription free use for tablets greater than 10.1 screen size

    If your screen size on a mobile device is greater than 10.1 inches you need a subscription to edit spreadsheets on onedrive excel.
    I have just upgraded my iPad from 4th gen to iPad Air, and apples new basic iPad screen is 10.2 inches.
    Therefore, may people will suddenly find they can’t edit their basic spreadsheets that they have been using no problems for years.
    Please remove the screen size limit, having it doesn’t make me want to get a subscription (a nonsense for just one spreadsheet), it makes me want to find another provider.
    Please fix this!

  14. Add subtotal

    Can you add “subtotal()” function as similar to windows version on iPad excel? This a great tool to do statistics in a filtered selection of data.

  15. Lock cells to protect formula

    Being able to lock cells in Excel for iPhone / iPad would be greatly appreciated. To protect formulas from being accidentally edited or deleted.

  16. Ability to bold or italicize half of a cell

    In regular Excel on my computer, I'm able to bold or italicize only a portion of the text within a cell, while keeping the other portion regular font. This is unable to be done on the iPad version of Excel. Please add this simple functionality to the iPad version of Excel.

  19. An "All Update" button in the Android Excel App. ( Developer: officean@microsoft.com ) is strictly required.

    An "All Update" button in the Android Excel App. ( Developer: officean@microsoft.com ) is strictly required.
    This would update the entire Excel spreadsheet. This will update stock prices. Otherwise the 365 feature "Shares" "Geography" in the register DATA is not usable for Smartphones.

  20. I need access to Regression via Chromebook Excel

    I just purchased this Chromebook in August for school because I am supposed to have access to office 365 because I'm a student. Well, I can't retrieve the Regression Analysis on my laptop. I need Microsoft to get on the ball with this problem. Although Chromebook has an android operating system, I am sure that a company your size can come up with a way for us to have full access on our tablets.
