  1. Iteration

    In my case I want to be able to enter a number in one cell, then use this number in a formula and let the result only have two numbers behind the comma. In order to use the „round formula“ in the same box as the „sum formula“, the Iteration option is needed.

  7. Excel for iPad version 2.5 vs. 2.6

    Hi all,
    I apologize is this is not "the place" to make requests like this but the other MSFT forum is oddly quiet on this issue:
    On 10/9, version 2.6 of Excel was released. Nowwhere did it indicate that it was for only a specific version of IOS for iPad. On the contrary, it gave highlights for iPad Pro and regular iPad.

    The update version is unusable for regular iPad users (not having an iPad Pro, I can't comment on it). The application opens ok, displays the files list ok, but crashes when one is selected to be opened without…

  8. Scroll Bars

    The following suggestions are based on my use of Version 16.0.9001.2077:


    1. Provide a user-configurable option to show a handle when scrolling, or perhaps an option to specify scroll bars width.(It often takes 3 or more attempts to grab the extremely small scroll bars on my Samsung Note 8, I’m using a FHD+ (2220x1080) screen resolution.)


    2. Scroll range should be limited to the worksheet data range.(For example, being able to scroll to row 3,000 on a worksheet that only has a 100 rows of data has little to no value and makes small scroll bar movements overly sensitive.)

  10. "기록"이란 이름은 Microsoft excel에서 이미 사용 중입니다. 다른 이름을 사용하세요.

    탭에 History란 이름이 사용중이면

  11. set print area

    If you can add a feature that allows users to set the print area for tablet/phone users (Windows 10 Mobile, to be more specific), it would be a boon to mobile workers. Especially for Office 365 subscribers.

  12. Input/output data

    Allow data to be input or output. Even just allowing a designated aheet to import/export independantly as a CSV file can allow a spreadsheet to reference different data sets.

  15. Format keyboard appropriately

    On mobile devices the keyboard presented should be that pertaining to the format of the field being completed. That is if you are entering data in a field formatted as numeric you should be presented with a numeric keyboard and not the last keyboard used as happens at present. This is done by other apps like google sheets so I cannot see why it can't be done in excel
