    Thanks for the suggestion and for the support of this feature. If you meant to vote for the Data Form, which is different than VBA UserForms, please change your vote to that suggestion instead. From reading the comments on this one, it seems that some clarification was needed.

    I updated the title and description for this one and we’ll continue to monitor for comments and votes.

    Here’s the link to the Data Form suggestion – https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/304933-excel-for-mac/suggestions/17930662-restore-data-form-functionality

    Although I have Excel 2016, I still use Excel 2011 due to its better VBA. I won't consider Excel 2019 until its VBA is complete, preferably at least equal to Excel for Windows. I've used Excel since version 1 in 1985.

    Frankly, I've lost interest in Excel updates (Mac and Windows), having used it since 1985. Still using 2011 until it's dead, although I also have 2016. Excel was the only good part of Office.

    Maybe UserForms in Excel 2019, with a free upgrade for Excel 2016 victims. Office 2016 can go down as another flop, like Office 2008 was. My own belief is that Microsoft is intentionally sabotaging its own Mac products in an effort to bolster Windows.

    Update – thanks for the continued support of this feature. We’ll keep this request open for voting, but we’ll need to consider modifying the behavior slightly if it is to be brought back. For this suggestion, we would want to enable such behavior on both Mac and Windows, but we would need to do it in a way that does not cause problems for people who don’t want this behavior. For example, it may be that you would type =, then hold the CMD key as you click the cells to be added. Or perhaps you would need to enable a preference to get the old behavior. Please comment on these options or offer other ideas.

    We’ve been working to make Excel more consistent between Mac and Windows, as can be seen by the updates over the past several months, which have satisfied several thousand votes on this forum (multi-thread…
