  1. issues pasting into excel for iOS

    When pasting into excel, it adds a blank row as a header and a footer

    How it happens:
    I select a row of cells in Numbers (2 or more cells)
    I copy those cells
    I go to paste the cells into Excel
    The cells get pasted into a row below the one I have selected, and have a header and foot added to them of blank cells

    I am able to get around the issue by pasting from Numbers into an Excel file using a different app "OfficeSuite", so I don't believe the issue is to do with Numbers

    Even…

  2. Still cannot open spreadsheets with multiple hidden columns (Excel for IOS 2.1)

    This is the third link I receive in response to where I should post the problem.
    Follows the problem as well as the link with the posts
    Microsoft has made several updates available to try to fix the problem, but spreadsheets with multiple hidden columns remain unopened due to a bug. Currently the version of Excel for IOS is 2.1, but the problem continues to occur. Please Microsoft help us and correct this problem. We are waiting.

    Version 1.31 works without problems, all subsequent updates present the problem after updating the app.
    I tested files with several hidden columns. If…

  4. Add scroll bars on excel and word to navigate large sheets and documents

    I work with large database files from counties, which Excel handles easily. The problem is getting around on these large sheets of 200 columns by 30,000 rows. Swiping makes it impossible to effectively view or edit these files. I am amazed that Excel accepts these files without a problem, but I need scroll bars to access different parts of the sheet. Even lowly PDF readers have these!

    The same problem exists formlarge Word documents.

  6. Excel is inaccessible for VoiceOver users after the April 11th update

    I am a VoiceOver user and usually use Excel for the desktop. Occasionally, I have to take my worksheets on the road and need to edit them. I went on a trip to New Orleans from February 12 to February 22. During my trip, I could navigate around my worksheets and edit the cells. After the April 11 update, I tried to take an excel spreadsheet on the road but couldn't navigate the spreadsheet or edit the cells. Proper regression testing would have caught this problem. Please fix it hopefully in the next update.
    Thanks so much.

  7. Really hope that you're not closing this (and Word/Powerpoint) for desktop users

    I really hope that you are not closing this down as it is really useful for small form-factor tablets where you don't need and don't want a full desktop experience (and don't want to "waste" a licence on it).

  8. Allow Excel to link with OneNote for creation and use of Chemistry labs

    I would like to create chemistry labs within OneNote (Class Notebook) and have the data link to an Excel file embedded within the OneNote lab. Then when students enter their data into the OneNote file, then it updates to an Excel file that has more "teacher information." I can then grade their lab reports more efficiently and paperless and have access to everything from anywhere.

  12. Add feature to auto log out for users.

    In our manufacturing plant, we use MS products to display much of our training materials. Currently we are having each user log into their own 365 account so they can access individualized training sent to them via their onedrive accounts. The problem is that when you log out, the user must go into settings and reapply the option to reset user credentials every single time. The setting does not stay set. Every time it performs the function it inverts back to being off. The next user then can not log in. Also I would really like if the software would…

  13. Excel Version 16.0.8027.1007 I use this software on my tablet connected to a Bluetooth external swiss-french keyboard bluetooth "Logitech".

    I use this software on my tablet connected to a Bluetooth external swiss-french keyboard bluetooth "Logitech".

    With this version of "Excel", the "AltGr" is not recognised.

    As an example, on the Swiss keyboard layout, to get the "@" sign, we have to use "AltGr" + "2".

    (This problem does not occur with "MS-Word" for Android.

    I tried to reinstall "Excel" already.

  17. Excel iOS: auto-saves files despite having switched off auto-save

    Please see https://answers.microsoft.com/thread/7768863c-337c-49a3-b207-1a9635510bad for a serious bug first reported by the OP over 4 months ago.

    If auto-save is switched off (which I think it should be by default, but that's another matter) and I discard changes when exiting a file, the file timestamp still changes. This then spreads to other devices seeing the file on OneDrive. So if I just want to check something in a file from several years ago it suddenly looks like I've recently edited the file! This bug of course is not present in Windows.

  18. Bug issue. On Excel, when i have an external data connection via the web, for instance, on iPhone it is not in that yet. So the issue is why

    When i have an external data connection via the web, for instance, on iPhone it is not in that yet. So the issue is why does it disconnect the one on my PC, just because the iPhone version doesn't work yet? It should say (as it does) that the link is not going to work, but then not disconnect the link permanently, because then I have to re-insert it every time I use the PC version.

  19. gps navigation

    please create two new functions or addins that inserts the ipads gps latitude and longitude into the excel spreadsheet. It would be great for doing navigation calculations. It would be great if the functions continuously updated as the ipad moves rather than having to manually recalculate.
