  3. 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.

  4. Specific colours for charts

    Charts currently only allow selection of colour groups which rarely match the message I need to convey. I need to be able to select the display colour of individual data series in charts (bars, sectors or lines) and sometimes even individual parts of data series.

  5. A new product: Excel Dynamic

    I think Microsoft have a hug opportunity to improve Excel by introducing an icon-based add-on to Excel. This add-on will be used to do dynamic calculations (i.e. any calculations where you are looking at how things are changing over time) and will use the notation from system dynamics software (for examples, see sysdea.com or stella architect by iseesystems.com). The add-on will collapse the time series for any variable into one icon, and will make use of arrows to show causal connections between variables (rather than using confusing and error-prone cell references). These icons will make an important visual distinction between…

  6. 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).

  7. 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.

  12. Modern Excel charts also available for IOS

    It would be good to have modern charts also available in Excel for Ipad: Waterfall, Sunburst, treemap... Currently they are available for Windows, MacOS, Android but not on IOS. Thanks.

  16. App corrupts Excel files, preventing opening on other normally compatible software

    Opening, or in the case of password-protected files merely trying to open, an XLSX file in Excel for Android modifies the file. Permission is not requested and autosave is disabled, but file size is increased by roughly 30 % and the file then appears as corrupted to desktop Excel and other software such as Google Sheets.

    Sample files, both original and corrupted (-and), enclosed. Password is "password".

  17. Ability to open any file, even if not editable

    Just as the iOS version, all files can be opened, not all can be edited or all functions are available. However, all can be opened.

    HI Scott,

    We’re working on loading more files. Can you add some more detail about what specific issue you’re running into here, so we can prioritize it appropriately?

    Thanks,

  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.

    Best,
