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…

    It's pretty clear that no-one from Microsoft reads this.

    And with only 103 votes, it will never be fixed. Tell your friends/colleagues to vote for it!

    I get the impression that nobody from Microsoft reads this. Update after update and still no fix.

    With version 15.25.1 ODBC almost works. I can get Microsoft Query to connect to the database, see the tables, execute the SQL query and receive that data.
