    Thanks for the suggestion Nick. We’ve got some related work we’re looking at soon, and we’ll be sure to carefully consider if we can get a fix in for this then. As always, more votes helps – so keep voting for the things you care about most.

    Thanks,
    John [MS XL]

    Great suggestion – thanks again for taking the time to put it on this site and for the thoughtful followup comments. This is pretty related to some other work we’ve got going and already has a fair number of votes, so we’ll work on getting plans in place now and hope to get started on this soon.

    Thanks,
    John [MS XL]

    This is a no-brainer. Microsoft, please make this feature more accessible.

    Good suggestion Frederic – thanks for taking the time to post it. We’ll take a look at the F4 loop and including other functionality like this as soon as we can. We’ll be spending more time on the things with more votes – so folks that really want to see this should keep voting it up.

    Best,
    John [MS XL]

    How many more votes are needed? It has been more than 2.5 years.

    Excel MVP Jon Acampora created an add-in that will let you toggle table column references from relative to absolute by pressing F4. This is the capability I'd like to see built-in to Excel.

    It would also be nice if when I drag a cell range to copy it, if Excel could detect table column references in the formula and prompt me with the "Auto Fill Options" menu. The menu would show an option to copy column references as Absolute or Relative.

    As a work around, consider trying Smart Indenter, a free add-in for the VBA editor. It doesn't indent as you type, but it's available on the right-click context menu. It's great when you've inherited someone else's code.

    Thanks for all of the votes – the team has definitely taken notice of the activity around this issue. We moved to SDI as a result of customer requests, but it looks like we’ve got work to do to really nail the use cases people care about. From a read over the comments, I see a number of cases that we will want to investigate further as we think through MDI vs SDI. We’ll get someone from the team to take a deeper look, and we may reach out to some of you for more clarification as we go. Thanks again for all the voting and passion here!

    John, Excel
