    Thanks for taking the time to post a suggestion Malcolm! We’ll be taking a look at lookup functions. There’s a number of votes on the site for them – I’m not going to merge all of them though because different posts are asking for slightly different things. Please keep voting for the ones you want to see most!

    Cheers,
    John [MS XL]

    A more comprehensive solution to this, which I have suggested somewhere else here would be to be able to label formula fragments so rather than say:
    IF(AA120+SIN(AB120)>AC120,AA120+SIN(AB120),0) you could write:
    IF(test:(AA120+SIN(AB120)>AC120),test,0)

    Thanks for submitting this. It’s a very good idea, and we’re considering ways in which this might be implemented. Please keep the votes coming, so we can see just how useful this would be, and properly prioritize this against other potential features work.

    Thanks for the support and the detailed discussion around this suggestion. We understand that there are some advantages and disadvantages with both MDI (multi-document interface) and SDI (single-document interface), and we currently do not have plans to revert to MDI. We do want to improve the experience with SDI so you can get your work done efficiently, and this post has helped toward that goal.

    Some of the specific issues mentioned are addressed as follows:
    – Stability: This has been a focus over the past several years, and the monthly releases in 2020 have been among the most reliable ever in terms of avoiding crashes.
    - Screen space – while it won’t get all the space back, you can minimize the ribbon to save some space. It only shows when needed.
    - Navigation between workbooks: you can use CTRL+F6, SHIFT+CTRL+F6, CTRL+TAB or SHIFT+CTRL+TAB to switch to the next workbook. …

    Thanks for supporting this feature. We won’t be able to in the near future, but we understand that it would be a nice improvement. Even though it seems like a straightforward idea, it is quite complex since named ranges can be dynamic, meaning that the range is calculated when the workbook is calculated.

    We’ll continue tracking votes for this suggestion.

    Great news. We have started to rollout the Unhide multiple sheets dialog box improvement! It is currently available on Office Insider Windows- Beta channel build 16.0.13424.10000 and up.

    We are working on rolling this out to a general audience (Current Channel), as well as to Mac and Excel for the web. We will post updates here.

    If you are excited by this change or have comments for us, please share at File→Feedback.

    Thanks, Urmi

    Thanks to everyone for the votes and discussion about having undo independently in each workbook. Even though this request has been here for a long time, we are listening and we realize that it can be frustrating if you press Undo while you’re in one workbook and it undoes something in another workbook. We’ve been considering the technical challenges to make Undo work “per workbook”, and want to share some details about it with you.

    The undo process relies on the state of all open workbooks being exactly the same after an “undo” as they were before the undone action was taken. One example of how undo “per workbook” is problematic is with linked workbooks. Let’s say you have WorkbookA, with a formula that refers to WorkbookB, such as =SUMIFS. This formula will give the sum of values in WorkbookB in range A1:A10 that have “Yes” in the…

    Or even if this not possible, how about allowing freeze pane within each window split?

    But ONLY if you allow it to be turned off. In order to avoid the rather confusing dependency arrows, I use the #REF error constructively. If I want to see what a row does quickly, I delete it, look for where the #REF errors occur, then undo the delete.

    It would be rather irritating if I got warning messages when doing this, particularly if the warning message was modal.

    Thanks for the suggestion Malcom. We’ll keep an eye on this – we’ll be more deeply investigating things with more votes, so people should up vote this if they like it. I’d also encourage people to chime in on the comments for this one with any specific asks for particular cases/operations they care about more than others.

    Cheers,
    John [MS XL]
