    Thank you for voting for “there’s a problem with the clipboard” issue. I think this refers to this error dialog: “There’s a problem with the clipboard, but you can still paste your content within this workbook."

    When Excel shows this dialog after a copy (CTRL+C) action, it means that another app has a lock on the system clipboard. In this situation you can still paste within Excel. However you cannot paste to another app like Word or Outlook which uses the clipboard.

    A while ago we made some improvements for Office365 users so that this error message only shows once per Excel instance. This was based on customer feedback – the design change prevents it popping up multiple successive times when the clipboard is locked. We have also considered never showing the error dialog, but there was user feedback that this message is informative and helpful in some cases.

    This only happens to me when I'm using Power Query.

    YES!!!!

    We REALLY need a function like that! Perhaps it could be called APPENDARRAY. Or perhaps it could be something as simple as:

    {Array1, Array2, Array3}

    I run into the need for it all the time!

    Although DAX Studio does this...

    ...It's a multi-step manual process. But PQ could allow the process to be part of a query...sort of a Table.Buffer on steroids.

    ...I suspect that most companies allow only a small list of add-ins to be installed.

    ...It requires the use of Power Pivot, which also should have this feature.

    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. …

    Negative date-time values currently have no meaning. It would be easy to use those values to cover ALL dates prior to 1900. With the right approach, astronomers, geologists, paleontologists, historians, genealogists, and so on, could use dates prior to 1900. To do so, however, we’d lose the ability to work with the time of day prior to 1900.

    The scaling would take some thought to define. The Gregorian dates could go back, perhaps, to Monday, Jan 1, 4713 B.C...the beginning of the Julian calendar. Further back, there’d be a span where only years were tracked. And then centuries, and so on.

    This adjusted scaling makes sense, because, for example, the K-T event happened about 65.5 million years ago. But no one will ever be able to say (or want to) that it happened on Tuesday, May 16, 65487 BC at 2:49 am, GMT.

    And also, along the way, there's be a function that could convert between Gregorian and Julian dates.
