    This message is a good way of allowing a program to completely close. There are many programs that do not clean up after themselves, so this message is an OK way to close - maybe they could delete the "large amount." I do not see this as a "bug," but was wondering why the commenters need to close Excel so often as to be annoyed by this; perhaps there is another underlying problem?

    Just curious. Why does the clipboard ever need to be cleared? I get a message when closing Excel, whether or not I want to clear it, and that seems like the only time it would be desired - to clear memory for other programs.

    I am not sure how well this would work for the average user. I think it would be a nightmare for me and I am used to working with stacks - scalars, vectors, and matrices. I don't know if the chosen delimiters of multiple items could be recognized easily by other applications. The clipboard, I believe was originally designed to move data between applications.

    I like the idea of an invert, but the transpose option should also be able to paste over existing data. If I copy A1:A20, and try to paste (transposed) into A1:T1 it fails and I have to go into B1:U1 and then delete column A. I suspect an invert would have this same problem.

    For Kenneth...I a not sure what "transpose" means either, since one could go clockwise or counter-clockwise, except by learning through experience.

    I am not sure what a "waterfall" chart is, but all chart titles and axes titles should be able to be cell references.

    You don't mean multiple "sheets," here, but multiple "workbooks." I do not like the SDI either, but seems to be the wave of the future, a Windows without windows, which did gobble up resources but worked well. I have MDI legacy programs that Windows is no longer functioning smoothly with.

    I think I posted this same suggestion once before. I will put in a vote here and agree whole heartedly with Roy - if Excel finds it on loading, Excel should be able to direct us to it.
    I most frequently find this issue when someone has copied a chart from another workbook - the trendline, or error bars are likely sources of stray links, but hard to find in a large workbook. A Search for the offending file name often, but not always, works.

    There is a button to move the decimal point, requires two clicks, but fast if I can remember which button to click - I often go the wrong way.

    A customizable "My format" button might be desirable.

    Not sure why this is better than applying the existing =RAND() function.
