    I agree what the OP is asking for doesn't require larger numbers, but just strings. Strings can be very long in Excel, in fact the xlPrecision plugin uses up to 32k character strings to represent numbers so that Excel can use that plug in to represent numbers almost that long.

    I would love to see some option for more precision -- in actual fact -- not to store CC numbers, of course, but let's say calculation of PI or E or sqrt(2).

    Obviously this would be something that users like me would keep turned off all the time. Even though the "simplification" should help users, a lot of people would be confused by Excel changing what they write.
    Let's say we wrote NOT(A1<B1) and therefore when we looked for exactly that formula in a spreadsheet, after the simplification, we wouldn't find it. Not a good day for some.

    My cellfunction idea would be a way this could, in part, be realized. If you like it, vote for it.

    Thanks for your suggestion! Unfortunately we will not be able to address this in the near future. We’ll keep tracking the voting.

    The reason you can’t have 2 workbooks open with the same name is due to the way that linked workbooks are managed. If you have multiple workbooks open and you create a link between them, Excel shows the filename of the linked file. If there are 2 workbooks with the same name, then the formula would be ambiguous. You can read more about how Excel manages external links here – https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/328440/description-of-link-management-and-storage-in-excel.
