    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?

    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 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.

    Thanks for all the support and comments about this request. We don’t have plans to add this format in the near future, but we’ll keep monitoring the votes as we prioritize this suggestion among other requests.

    There are a few ways that you can enable this already, as mentioned in some of the comments.

    1. Set the style used when you click the comma button.
    – This can be done by modifying the cell style called “Comma”, which is used when you click the comma button. See the screen shot in the comments for details, or look at this article to modify the style – https://support.microsoft.com/office/apply-create-or-remove-a-cell-style-472213bf-66bd-40c8-815c-594f0f90cd22.
    – For existing workbooks, you’d need to set the style in each workbook.
    – To make it the default in new workbooks, you can create a new workbook, make the change to the “Comma” style, and then save the workbook as a template…

    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.
