    Hi Arie,

    You can sort of already do this by setting the picture as the "background" of the comment. See more here: https://www.extendoffice.com/documents/excel/917-excel-insert-picture-image-in-comment.html

    I'm leaving the idea active though, because this really could be easier.

    Cheers,
    Dan [MS]

    What is an example "jump list" that you are suggesting be positionable? (I'm not familiar with "jump lists")

    Thanks,

    What do you mean when you say "make them the same?"

    What would you like to see instead of a blank sheet when you boot Excel? Just the desktop? Something else?

    Thanks for the additional information. Excel already formats emails, urls, and text entered in cells in the way that you're suggesting.

    Can you give an example of text typed in a cell that falls into one of the buckets you've suggested, but is not formatted the way you'd like to see it formatted?

    Thanks,
    Dan [MS]

    @A Guy - Ctrl+d will copy the value of the cell above for you, and it works in Excel Online.

    Hi Erik, sorry for the slow response - missed your comment in July.

    I'd start here: https://onedrive.uservoice.com/, that's a UserVoice site for our OneDrive team, which I assume they monitor in the same way we monitor this one for Excel.

    Hope that helps,
    Dan [MS]

    Dan Battagin [MS XL] commented  · 

    Yep, I agree that it's different - just wanted to make sure. You could also always share only specific files with users, so UserA can access some files in FolderX and UserB could access some other files in FolderX. With OneDrive.com, each user would only see the files they have access to.

    But, then you have to manage permissions at the file level, rather than folder.

    For the ask you have - that's really a file system ask, not an Excel idea, so I'm probably going to decline it. Please let me know if there's something Excel specific that I'm missing.

    Cheers,
    Dan [MS]

    Dan Battagin [MS XL] commented  · 

    When you say "different folders" - do you just mean different permissions? What does the folder the file is stored in have to do with sharing? (I may be missing something obvious :-)

    Cheers,
    Dan [MS]

    Wow.

    Thank you to all those participated in our survey. What an amazing number of responses, many of them with very deep content. We’re processing the over ten thousand responses(!), and already appreciate the time so many of you took to answer with passion and experience.

    Please know this survey is used to help influence various topics – both on Python as well as other related topics that the comments started to bleed into. Given the passion, I want to be clear this remains an area of exploration for us, without any specific timeline.

    We’ll provide updates as we progress on this feature request.

    Thanks!

    @Andrew Jackson, @Vogel612 - please add your comments to the "Allow Python as a scripting language" idea as well. When the team reviews that thread, it's good to see both sides of the conversation.

    Cheers,

    Hi Kingsley,

    Are you looking to access some of the data programmatically in a CSV format, or are you trying to export/save as the entire file as CSV?

    Can you give some more detail on what you are looking for?

    Excel Online will already show pictures (JPG, PNG, etc,) that are contained in the file.

    Do you mean shapes? (rectangle, circle, etc.)

    Or, do you mean something else?

    Thanks,
    Dan [MS]

    It'd be great if you could share a file or two. I'll send you a message privately.

    @Jaroslav - yep, that's what I was referring to, but Chandran is asking to not use the number formatting symbols.

    Cheers,
    Dan [MS]

    Dan Battagin [MS XL] commented  · 

    @Chandran - got it. I'm removing the status, so other users can vote on the idea. And, I'm capturing what I had there, here for posterity.

    One other thing I'll note - we have a little bit of what you're asking for (I think) in the Ribbon today. There are buttons there for currency ($), percentage (%), comma (,), increase/decrease decimals (+.00/-.00), and of course the "preset formats" in the drop down. But those definitely aren't specifically what you're suggesting.

    Thanks for the idea,
    Cheers,
    Dan [MS]

    === from earlier status ===

    Hi Chandran,
    Previewing number formats is already supported in current versions of Excel. To see the preview, make sure that you have a cell selected that has a number that you want to apply the number format to, and then use the Number formatting dialog. When you do that, you’ll see the value in the selected cell previewed (In the Number Format dialog, above the format string) with whatever number format you choose.
    Hope that helps,
    Dan [MS]

    @Adam - I'm not sure I follow how this is related to Excel Online - can you elaborate?

    @Anonymous - you can upload a file from a thumbdrive (or wherever) to your OneDrive, and then open it in Excel Online. I think this is basically what you're asking for, except that you start in OneDrive rather than Excel Online. To do this:

    1. Connect your flash drive
    2. Open a web browser and go to OneDrive.com
    3. Log in with your user/pass (the same ones you use for Excel Online)
    4. Find the folder where you want to upload your file, and then click Upload.
    5. Once the file has uploaded, click on the filename to open it with Excel Online.

    Hope that helps - let me know,
    Dan [MS]

    @gmoProXL - for setting the column widths prior to creating the pivot, check out this idea: https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/304921-excel-for-windows-desktop-application/suggestions/10535790-allow-users-to-set-choose-defaults-via-settings

    Until that idea is implemented, you can get to PivotTable options immediately after creating the PivotTable (before you add any fields) and you can turn off the column resizing, so that even the first column you add doesn't resize anything.

    HTH,

    Have you given the Camera tool a try? There's a nice write-up on it here:

    http://www.addictivetips.com/microsoft-office/camera-tool-function-in-excel-2010/

    Note: this doesn't actually put the cell value in another cell, but does let you see exactly what is in the original cell.

    Can you clarify your feature idea - I'm not sure I understand it from the current title and description.

    Can you give some more detail on what you're asking for? Sounds like an additional column of data, which you can add to your spreadsheet.
