    Thanks for all your votes and comments about enabling support for UserForms in Excel for Mac.

    With emphasis on enabling more and more capability using Office add-ins in Excel that will work across platforms, we don’t expect to add support for creating and modifying UserForms.

    Please see this article for more information about what you can do in Excel with Office add-ins.

    Thank you for taking your time to suggest and vote for the “fill handle for worksheet copy”. While this is a good suggestion, we are not likely to be able to devote time to it in the near future. We’ll continue tracking the votes for this, though.

    My workaround for this is clunky, but it gets the job done. I created a user form that queries the custom lists object, and then loads them into a combo box. Click the button, and the sheets Get created.

    Thanks for all your support of this request. We are taking a close look at this along with the related requests about maintaining leading zeros when entering values in cells, and to stop changing values to scientific notation.

    We know these are important issues, so thanks for all the comments and votes.

    Thanks for supporting this feature. We won’t be able to offer this in the near future, but we understand that it would be a nice improvement. Even though it seems like a straightforward idea, it is quite complex. Old versions of Excel will not support the new behavior, so there would need to be some hybrid approach that will be suitable for old and new versions. Also, named ranges can be dynamic, meaning that the range might change and conditional formatting rules would have to be adjusted when the workbook is calculated. There are lots of cases to consider and deal with properly.

    We’ll continue tracking votes for this suggestion.

    Thanks for the feedback! We’re seeing a number of different posts about lookup functions – we’ll be taking a close look at this area and thinking it through. We’ll prioritize the asks according to votes along with other requests on the site. So I encourage people to keep voting if it’s something they really want to see the priority raised on.

    Best,

    Hi all,

    We have been working on this, and wanted to get your feedback on how you see this feature fitting into your workflow. We have a quick one question survey for you to give us your thoughts on the look and keyboard shortcuts we have at this time. Please see here for more: aka.ms/datePickerSurvey

    Thanks!

    Thank you for taking the time to share your request for linking min/max values of a chart axis to the cell value! We think this suggestion has merit; however, we don’t expect to devote time to it in the near future. We will continue tracking votes and comments here, and will keep this suggestion under consideration for future development.

    Thank you again, and please keep sharing your thoughts!

    Thanks to everyone for the votes and discussion about having undo independently in each workbook. Even though this request has been here for a long time, we are listening and we realize that it can be frustrating if you press Undo while you’re in one workbook and it undoes something in another workbook. We’ve been considering the technical challenges to make Undo work “per workbook”, and want to share some details about it with you.

    The undo process relies on the state of all open workbooks being exactly the same after an “undo” as they were before the undone action was taken. One example of how undo “per workbook” is problematic is with linked workbooks. Let’s say you have WorkbookA, with a formula that refers to WorkbookB, such as =SUMIFS. This formula will give the sum of values in WorkbookB in range A1:A10 that have “Yes” in the…

    Thanks very much for your votes. And to those who took the time to fill in the survey, thank you! This is a brief update to let y’all know that we’ve started work on this feature request along with the one on changing numbers to scientific notation.

    Thanks for your enthusiasm about this “magic” feature. We don’t have any plans in the near term to make changes to linked pictures, but please continue to submit your votes/comments! We’ll keep watching this discussion to help us continue product planning. Thanks again!

    The easy way to handle that would be to add an apostrophe (') before the fraction; that preserves it.
