What’s new in April 2014 update of Excel Online

Some of the new features added to Excel Online in the April 2014 update, now available in both OneDrive (previously SkyDrive) and Office 365, are as follows: is the place to get going with Excel Online

Now, it’s much easier—just go to and click the type of document you want to create.
Authoring (inserting, editing, and deleting) comments

Users of Excel Online have been able to see comments on cells for a while, but until now there has been no way to add new comments to a cell. With this release, the ability to insert new comments as well as edit (and even delete) existing comments is added to Excel Online. Long-time Excel users may notice that the experience has been modernized—the text of a comment now shows in a task pane that contains all of the comments for the active sheet (making it easy to jump between cells with comments by simply clicking the comment in the task pane). 
Working with comments in Excel Online is now easier than ever, and is consistent with Word and PowerPoint Online.

Editing files with VBA

The capability of editing files that contain VBA without removing (or corrupting) the VBA contained in the file is now added to Excel Online. That means that if you have a file that you use in Excel Online sometimes and in desktop Excel other times, you can do that, taking advantage of the VBA in the desktop, and keeping it intact when you’re using it in a web browser.
XLSM files (with Macros) can now be edited in Excel Online, without removing the VBA.
Hiding and unhiding rows and columns

Previous releases of Excel Online have correctly displayed—by not displaying—hidden rows and columns, and there have been some “hacks” to hide and unhide those cells. With this release, Microsoft has added support for the most common way that users hide and unhide rows and columns, using a context menu that appears when you right-click a row or column header—just like in desktop Excel.

With this release of Excel Online, you can hide and unhide rows and columns just as you do in desktop Excel.
In-app feature search: Tell me what you want to do

We’ve all had that moment when we know what we want to do, but don’t quite remember how to do it, wondering, ”How do I change the font?” or “How do I find the median of a set of numbers?” Now, when you type a few characters in Tell Me, Excel Online will tell you exactly how to do what you want to do.

Tell me can quickly find any Excel command for you.
Customizable Status Bar Aggregates

Microsoft released an update in November that brought Status Bar Aggregates to Excel Online. With this update, several more aggregates where added , Min, Max, and Numerical Count; and by making the set of aggregates visible in the status bar configurable—just like in desktop Excel.
You can show the aggregates that are the most useful to you in the status bar.

Get anywhere in your spreadsheet fast with GoTo

As Excel Online becomes more and more feature-rich, the spreadsheets being created are more and more similar to spreadsheets created with desktop Excel. That means larger, more complex spreadsheets and a greater need to quickly navigate around your masterpiece. Enter GoTo (Ctrl+G), a “pro” feature that allows you to quickly type in a reference and jump to that location in the spreadsheet.

You can jump to a place in your spreadsheet fast by typing a reference in GoTo.
