    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

    We are looking at several ways to make formatting easier. This is an interesting approach that we will consider.

    Thanks for the suggestion Levi! We’ll be taking a look at this along with some other asks around conditional formatting. It’s a big help to see the things with the most votes, particularly within areas like formatting. So please keep the votes coming for things you want us to do sooner!

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the suggestion Jessica. We’ve got a few other suggestions on the site that are similar with scientific notation, etc. We’ll take a look at this area, and pay special attention to any cases that get a lot of votes. So please keep the votes coming to help us do a good job at prioritizing asks like this!

    Cheers,

    Thanks to Graham for starting this conversation. If you would also like Excel to maintain named range references and structured table references in the “applies to” field for Conditional Formatting rules, please add your comments and vote this one up. We will prioritize accordingly.

    Thanks,

    Thanks again for all the passion on this issue – we hear you and we’ll get someone on the team to dig in to the issue. I’ve seen a few related sub-issues while scanning over the comment section for this one, so we may reach out to a few of you for clarifications. Thanks again for all the votes, and keep them coming for the issues you care about!

    Sometimes the column headers have to contain long text. My easy answer to allow as much info as possible to show up on one screen is to turn the text sideways and turn word wrap on. However, every time I push Refresh to get new data, Excel turns my text horizontal again. The odd thing is, the Wrao Text and Orientation buttons in the ribbon stay selected just as I had previously specified; Excel just ignores them until I deselect and reselect each option.

    It would be great to have a way to apply a format in the Field Settings dialog for each field dragged into the rows, columns, or values boxes in the Pivot Table Fields pane. If those formats could stick, and if the "Autofit column widths on update" option would honor them, keeping the chosen Wrap Text and Orientation options in mind, I wouldn't have to fiddle with my pivot tables every time the data needs refreshed.

    Great suggestion, thanks David! And thanks to other people who took the time to clarify/comment on this one. There’s definitely room to tighten this experience up in a number of places. We’re getting a lot of traffic on the site, so please keep voting for the things you care about most to help us do a great job of prioritizing.

    Best,

    This is a minor positive side effect of floating tables: We would be able to have multiple tables next to each other on the same sheet without one table's overfilled word-wrapped cells uglifying the rows of the other table.
