Hi All,

 

Why on earth didn't MS implement the step-by-step evaluation of functions in Excel on MAC?

It is a major disaster to use complicated functions this way, MS doesn't seem to care about MAC users.

I did pay the full price for the whole office package, like a Windows user also does.

@arieplugge That's the way it is. And the formula evaluation feature is just a minor thing. I hardly ever use it. Quite a few other functions are not available for Mac users. Depends on how much of a power user you are to notice them. Have used Excel for the Mac for many years, but last year I installed a virtual Windows machine on the Mac and now run the full Excel for PC version on it. Works great!
