    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    Thanks for the suggestion Jessica. We’ve got a few other suggestions on the site that are similar with scientific notation, etc. We’ll take a look at this area, and pay special attention to any cases that get a lot of votes. So please keep the votes coming to help us do a good job at prioritizing asks like this!

    Cheers,
    John [MS XL]

    this should really be in every category. Never ever change any data entry without specific permission.

    When working with data, opening CSV or TSV files, copying and pasting from other documents, Excel has the nasty habit of changing many entries into a date format. This is done automatically, without verification or any indication that the data entries have been changed.

    it should be possible to have a system-wide option to prevent Excel from doing this whatsoever. Many scientists would love to have the power that Excel gives, without the destructive autocorrect-like monstrosities.

    Switch it off.
