@Steve Kraynak , thanks for sharing. By the way, I guess this one Pull Current Stock Prices and Historical Data Into Excel also could be closed, it's still in Started status from Dec 2018.


Thanks for the update, @Steve Kraynak. Is good to see this changelog associated with UserVoice, so we can see better the dimension of that channel on the improvements. Do you have some information about these 2 suggestions below?



Thank you!

Hi Steve,

Nice post. Does the Excel team incorporate the into its Road-Map for excel?
There are currently 6 product suggestions in the top 10 that have a status of "accepting votes".

Some of these suggestions in the top 10 have been open since 2015 to no success.

As you have indicated in your previous post the site doesn't currently capture what has been taken into consideration. Might I suggest that your team implement a similar approach to the product suggestions.

Where by each suggestion is tagged with a status of "Completed", "In Review", "Needs Votes".
This would then assist your team in focusing on some of the higher voted items, and would also provide more visibility to users.

It would also provide the visibility that you described of features your team has completed suggestions that "make excel better".



Are you able to shed any light on when the Conditional Formatting applied to named ranges is likely to be incorporated into future versions?
It would be great to understand where this is in the Excel teams Road-Map as it is one of the most voted items, has been open since 2015 and still has a status of "Accepting Votes".

I look forward to hearing from you.


I need help with a formula can someone advise me? I am not sure even on the function to use?


Better if you ask the question here using Start New Conversation button.

The best way to get help is to post your question in the Excel area, explaining the problem you need to solve. If you can provide an example, it will be easier for anyone who jumps in to try to help you.

Post your question here:


@Steve Kraynak 

Are you able to shed some light on what "not at this time" means?

This has been a product suggestion for almost 5 YEARS!
If "not at this time" when?


It is one of the most voted items not only in its category but across the excel suggestions.


Responding by saying "it's in the too hard basket" is not a valid response.

Please provide an ETA/road map of when you actually intend to resolve this product suggestion!

There is absolutely no point in users using the voting system of forum if they are simply going to be ignored.
