  1. Repair or update Excel for Android Nougat 7.1, it isn't working

    The Excel App was working in the 7.0 nougat platform, since I updated to 7.1 Nougat is not working anymore, it can't open , also, if you solve this, improve the performance too, since working in 7.0 , Excel, word and PPT were a bit laggy . My smartphone is a Moto z with 4gb ram, I had to switch to Polaris , waiting for you guys to make an update and figure the problem .

          • Inside cell border option

            The options for border have various combinations, including 'all border' and 'only outside borders'. But it does not include options for inside a grid of cells such as 'inner vertical lines', 'inner horizontal lines' and 'only inside borders'.

            Please add these variations as they critical to format files with multiple rows and columns. On the PC version, these are available under the 'more borders' option but the same is not present in the mobile version. Kindly add this functionality.

            • Allow editing offline OneDrive files

              Hi there,

              I am migrating from Google Apps to Office 365 Home and I found that I cannot edit Office documents that are made offline in OneDrive when I have no internet access on Android. Google knows it for free and I think it is a very convenient feature. Can you please give me a quick answer about are you currently working on this feature or is it on your backlog or there is no chance to have this feature?

              Thanks,
              Denes

              • Blattschutz aufheben

                Ich habe das Problem, dass an verschiedenen Geräten der Blattschutz einer Exceldatei nicht aufgehoben werden kann.
                Bei der Excelversion handelt es sich um die Version 1.0.1 (16.0.8229.2048). Auf den Smartphones ist Android Version 6.0.1 installiert und es handelt sich um mehrere Smartphones von Samsung.
                Der Chache etc, wurden bei den Geräten schon gelöscht, Excel wurde zurück gesetzt. Es sind Geräte, bei denen sich die Datei früher öffnen ließ, und auch komplett neue Geräte.

                Der Button für das Aufheben der Fensterfixierung ist nicht aktiv.

                Wer hat eine Lösung für mich?

                Michael Marschner

                  • Calculations Options

                    It will be useful to have an options to have Automatic and Manual calculation as in PC. When working on large workbook with multiple linked sheet, it take several seconds/minutes to add data/transactions into excel as every entry is recalculated. With Automatic and Manual calculations options, one can disable auto calculate, complete a task and re-enable it. This allow quick completion of task on phone, tablet etc. Please this is difference from Auto save.
                    Thanks

                      • Add Dark Themes to Excel for Android

                        I use excel to record my temperature when I wake up every morning and having a blindingly bright screen flash in my face in a dark room is very painful. We already have dark themes for the computer versions, why not add them to the android versions too?

                            When opening and scrolling a excel sheet, it automatically goes into full screen mode. Can you provide an options as in Windows phone to hide/unhide the worksheet from going full screen when scrolling the data in a sheet.

                            Thanks

                              • Allow more flexibility with charts, such as modifying the axis scales (min, max,units, etc.)

                                The graph may be totally useless, as the axis start at x=0 and y=0 in a XY graph (for example, when data becomes a tight group).

                                    • Add barcode font 3 of 9 for mobile scanning

                                      I want to scan directly off the screen and use excel to generate barcodes lists. It would make a mobile excel more useful.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Pls add options to deselect and select options while using pivot tables in excel.

                                          We are unable to view drop down options while using excel in android mobile phones. Hence request you to add these options so that we can use excel more extensively in andriod phones.
