    This is logical behavior. "-" indicates you are doing a formula/number. Try typing it in a cell and you'll see. The standard to tell Excel the "-" is a string literal is to add an apostrophe.

    VBA is very flexible, which in this case is working against you. Code as

    Sub test()
    Sheets(1).Cells(2, 4).Value = "-"
    End Sub

    I'm all in favor of Python, and please, please, no java script. Java script is a terrible idea and retro step in computing.

    Wow hard to find this one - should be at the top of the list.

    It is highly overdue that we can scale the row-size of the sheets.

    I have yet to discover the need for 16k columns, but I am often out of rows

    The computer is not the limitation

    Just allow the rows to grow or if that has a performance overhead, introduce settings for the workbook such as number of rows and columns (including auto calculation, i.e. by workbook rather than by Excel). Thus if I don't use 16k columns I could trade off memory for the columns for my rows.

    Row indices are Long already so there is no reason that we can't have 10m or 100m rows (aka records). This would make Excel a perfect tool for biggish data.

    This is a small change, so please?!

    Thanks for raising this Roger. This has been the bane of my life for 20+ years.

    Dear Microsoft : can you please READ what your marketing department says re "Microsoft (R)"
    Then can you please fix that:
    1. That the window is re-sizable
    2. That the columns are re-sizable
    3. The settings are remembered so that next time when I open it the window is sized ok
    3.

    I agree, but I rather see that this is a setting option. I prefer it to be set to shift+enter as shift+enter is used in so many web based and other text fields. Hence I find my self continuously typing shift+enter and then the cursor moves to the cell above. Perhaps the option can record what one wants to press for enter in a cell versus enter / shift+enter (down/up). There is already the option that enter moves the cell to the right

    Hi, there are a number of functional issues with Headers/Footers. I have taken the liberty to roll them all up so that we can get a combined much bigger vote and thus action. To transfer your votes here, can you please follow the link below and vote on that combined idea? Many thanks

    Malcolm's suggestion is spot on for me. Lotus 1-2-3 release 2.01 of 1982 or so used to do it :)

    Here is a suggestion. I agree it is a search if you are new or infrequently use it.

    It is actually in the same Ribbon as for MS-Word, being "Page layout". It's hard to find because it is hidden under "Margins" > "Custom margins" (that opens the "Page setup" dialogue window).

    If you use Headers / Footers frequently or infrequently, it may pay-off to add it to the "QAT" (Quick Access Toolbar) by right-clicking on the "Custom margins" function. I have added a screenshot to show you how.

    The trick I use, is to format one sheet to be what I want. Then I ctrl+select the other sheets that need to have the same header footer. I then go to the Page layout Ribbon, select Margins, then Page setup at the bottom. Once in that pop-up window, click on each of the tabs (Page, Margins, Header/Footer, Sheet) to bring them in focus. Once done click on "OK" and you'd find that all the additionally selected sheets have the right page formatting.
