When I started using CloudOn, macros were supported. Why would you take that capability away. Let me know when you turn it back on, it might be worth another look at that point.
I completely agree, macros are a huge part of how we manage our data processing with excel. This is useless to us without it.
I'd certainly pay to have native Excel macros working. The alternative is redeveloping some very complicated legacy spreadsheets!
When macros are supported please email me.
Does anyone know of an app that allows macro use?
Is everyone saying that there is no way to have a macro/button/vb in your excel file?
i dont understand. 355 votes and there is no content ! i think it is very obvious what these and many people more want. support for macros and vb excell as you so well supported in the past.
Would be willing to pay extra for this feature.
Please support macros in order to be able to open documents from emails on my iphone with the new ios7 operating system.
Please consider supporting macros so that I can open documents from emails on my iphone through the IOS7 operating system.
I need to enable macros in excel! I trust the source and I would highly benefit from my tablet if I could run macros.
Will I be able to launch an Mp3 file and have a .pdf file with the lyrics appear on the screen by touching an icon on the screen once?
I'm confused because not long ago I was able to do macros and now I can't. This app is now as useless as the native excel preview app built into iPads. Without macros I can't run files that I have created and I know to be safe. If we could just enable content like in excel it would be perfect, otherwise app will remain deleted.
I, too, would really like Cloud On to enable macros. Not doing so severely diminishes the product's value and utility to me.
NO Macro or VBA support makes CloudOn no better than any other app out there. The ONLY reason I would put up with a cloud app is to be able to run native MS apps on my iPad. Not supporting all their native functionality makes CloudOn useless to me, as all the functionality I've built into my spreadsheets won't work.
Without macro support! Was considering but no longer!! The security argument doesn't even hold up!!! Very disappointing.
Very disappointed that macros aren't available in Excel. I was evaluating whether I could forego having a Windows mobile device and stick with my iPad for serious Excel editing. Macros via CloudOn would have solved my problem.
I installed CloudOn specifically because it was the only android app out there which I could give to our researchers to use with our excel spreadsheets that used drop-downs and macros. No macro use means I have no use for this, and editing our spreadsheets to take out the macro functions means I can just use a faster, native-running app like Kingsoft or Documents to Go. Extremely disappointed this functionality was removed.
How can i run excel macro on cloudon
I basically bought my iPad cause of cloud on which at that time gave full support for macro enabled excell. The change for me means changing my tablet to windows 8 os which would be very expensive for the number of iPads I must change for my staff.
would really like to use macros and vba in spreadsheets
would really like to use vba in excel spreadsheets
I have to say that I was surprised when I realized that VBA no longer supported
Thanks for starting work on macros. safety issues can always be overcome. With iCloud support for macros I could put my iPad in front of the client and run through various scenarios that depend on macros. The only other way is to either bring my laptop (not that cool anymore), or log into my laptop remotely which chews up my data plan, and still not so cool. Since many people go to a lot of trouble to make extensive spreadsheets it would save a lot of time and effort to have a seamless way of doing this.
All, having (like many others) been recommended cloud on due to excel and macro use I now find myself unable to even open the files let alone view/edit with macro capability disabled. Considering this thread length I am not willing to wait. Anyone tell/recommend any other apps which interface with Dropbox and won't have these issues? I am on an ipad.
So glad I found this thread - saved me the time. No chance I'm going near a service like this if it doesn't offer me all the features I have on the desktop, there are better apps which run natively if you're willing to put up with reduced functionality.
I agree. Bring back macro support, even if it's a reduced command set while you work out how to protect from malicious code! Otherwise: great app. Thanks.
I agree with the others. Macro support is paramount for this program to be used by our staff. Very poor judgement by the CloudOn team. Please change back ASAP!
good morning! when I tried for the first time your product, I was very excited because I could finally use my excel file with macro vb on my tablet. now this is no longer possible and I wonder ... Now why do I need your software since there are dozens of apps that do the same thing locally with all their benefits. the only advantage to cloudon was to work exactly like on a desktop, now this app has no more reason to exist. I apologize for my English.
I really like this tool however it is the same as others out there, stand above the rest and add macro capability. I would pay for this feature!
Agree with previous comments by others. I set up Cloud On app as I thought it would be a great tool to access my Excel files on my iPad, however without Macro function it's no good to me. Please note our comments and fix ASAP.
Marcos asap pls.!
After contacting CloudOn support I have been advised that the use of Macros had never been originally intended from the outset. It was only after realising the leak in the system that the support was withdrawn. I am told it is because of security concerns. Such a pity I think.
This app was outstanding when the macros (VBA) and macros worked. Useless to me know with these gone. No longer can recommend to my colleagues and clients without these features. Now actively looking for something else. Let me know if you find the functionality we once had when CloudOn first came out. The users are owed an explanation.
I would pay for this feature if that's what it takes! We had it and now you take it away? I don't think we should have to, but you need to fix this problem very very quickly!
I just took the time to set CloudOn up because I was under the impression that it would give me full Excel functionality including Macros and Add-Ins. But very disappointed that they are no where to be found. This makes the tool no more useful than Office HD App......please fix..
Macros still seem to be working on my iPad but not on the Nexus where it says macros have been disabled. Then again, I don't think I've updated the iPad version in a while (and won't be anytime soon until there is an answer to the macro issue)
What in the world happened to Macro Support in Excel? I have been fighting with my workbook thinking I had done something to my file only to find out the support for it has disappeared. I would be happy to purchase the app if it had macro support. I would pay $20 for the app.
Even onlive supports macro
It would be useful if someone from Cloudon could post a comment on here, and put minds at rest!
As with many people on this page I was using CloudOn happily until the macro support stopped working. Has anyone had clarification that this is being addressed as I need to source an alternative if not.
How can they not know that CloudOn supported VBA before March??... and if it did, why remove the functionality all together?? i used CloudOn only as it supported Macros.. please make it work ....
This is a terminal change for my use of CloudOn. Please bring back the macros quick.
Please bring the ability to run macros back!
Kom er ook zojuist achter dat de macro's niet meer werken in Cloudon. Op welke termijn zou dit weer mogelijk zijn? Is er een alternatieve app? Are there any alternatives?
Please bring this back!
I agree with the other comments that macro integration made cloud on a special program that really stood out among the rest. What happened?
Sounds like a joke. They can't say they were not aware the vba features were working fine before the 27th march. As all of you the first thing I did when I accessed cloudon was to check whether I was able to run my vba code. I hope this is just a bug and not a limitation.
Very interestingly I queried this with support and they informed me today that they "didn't know how I had accessed these features" despite them working perfectly well for the Last 6 months!! Rather disappointing, and they are looking at it as a future update! I did wonder initially if it was related to the lates IOS Update, but it definitley seems to be a cloudon thing!
Since last update Excel VBA macros don't work anymore. Without this CloudOn is useless for me. Can I assume this will be corrected?Best regards Martin
Same issues! Last week cloudon stopped supporting hyperlinks (that previously worked fine) and this week macros have stopped functioning! Not great news as I'd just removed all hyperlinks and reprogrammed to macros to find that crashing now!! Cloudon please resolve ASAP! Any suggestions for other platforms that these functions will work on??
Me too, I really need Macro on my iPad. I have an Excel file, for volleyball scouting. Really need my mask and buttons, to have fast stats. PLEASE COME BACK SOON!
Macros stopped working today. What's up with that? This app doesn't serve much purpose for me without Macro ability.....
I'm having the same issues as Tony Grainger. My macros were unchanged, but no longer work. Please help.
Macros were working until today, no they have stopped. Has something changed? Error message: Cannot run the macro 'LocalFile_204925.xlsm! New_Entry'. The macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled.
Really, really, really need MACROS!!! Thanks.
You were in a very strategic point when you supported macro enabled .after you know longer support macro. You are one among many instead standing out as a special rogram one of a kind .
Not very useful without macro in excel. Just another half baked app
Really need Cloud On to Support Macros in Excel.
Macros are very common in the business world and it would be ideal for cloudon to support xlsm files aASAP
Microsoft Excel is useless without VBA macros and a lot less useful without Win32 API support. Come on Microsoft, give us a reason to stay on your platform.
Useless without macros
I need macros for testing so it would really help to have access to or to make macros on CloudOn. I'd pay for it.
Macro support would be a differentiator. And I'd guess you could get a fair number of people to pay for that. A premium CloudOn that supports macros. And even better a premium CloudOn that is brandable. I'd like my clients logos and name as the launch from ipad
Please do, as I feel this would give CloudOn an edge. Macro support is key for me.
please add Macros. Really need it or excel spreadsheets for work that I could be doing in the field with the iPad saving me a lot of time
I really need the macros in Excel to work in order to make this App usable for me. I have an Excel spreadsheet I use for reports and invoices when I am officiating bicycle races. I can set the spreadsheet up in advance using a computer, but I still need to make changes during the event. If I could do everything on the iPad, it would make everything easier as I don't have to go back to the computer every time I need to make a change.
Me too. All my spreadsheets contain macros for ease of use. CloudOn is useless if I can't use macros.
CloudOn is a great product. I agree though, that getting data automatically into Excel sheets from the web (as is supported by MS Excel) must be supported by CloudOn. It is a must for a product in the cloud environment. I.e. for updating stock portfolio with current prices.............
Problem getting external data using your excel app. Getting external data is why I installed CloudOn, you stated MS office support.
My vote for VBA also. I'm crippled without it.
Macros definitely required
we need macros please
We need macros to complete app
Why not make CloudOn a real complete MS Office on the Cloud?
I agree, without it Excel is incomplete
I doubly agree. This is one of the features that makes the MS Office Suite so useful for academia and enterprise. Without it, I'll still be using my computer (rather than iPad) for much of my work.
This would be an excellent idea, could really do with being able to use that function this weekend
Good, but vbeditor would be really good
I uploaded a workbook with a VBA module and the associated macros work. I just can't edit or create macros.
