Wow! I'll be looking forward to learning how we'll be able to navigate that... :-)
Great news! This is one feature change I have been waiting for for more than a decade!

Wow, that's a great start to your blog.
A couple of questions:
1. If I have a named range of XX123, will my formula =XX123 then refer to the cell reference or to the named reference?
2. Which approach will you take to resolve this issue? Conflicting names checker or an xl2003 compatibility mode?
Q. Will the number of unique elements in a pivot table expand as well?
J-walk is also covering Excel 12 in his blog.
Hope to get even more useful info here.
But what if I want 45 columns for every day of the year? Just kidding. Great first post. This feature was so universally desired, I think, that you may have set the bar too high. Or maybe the rest of the new features are just that good. I look forward to reading.
Thank you indeed.
What about VBA - will be supported? There is a lot of rumours about future this enviroment.
Could you tell us more about that?
Just out of interest: why 16,384? At least it's a power of 2 (2^14), I suppose!
Are you guys considering multi-threading the core libraries? Lots of yummy dual-coreness to be slurped up by the time Office 12 hits the stores.
I'm wainting for more elements in Pivot Tables to work with texts in data.
Over 1 million rows! WOW! That's the best news I've heard all week about anything.
Thanks for the post - glad to see a bit of info appearing - we're all pretty keen to see whats in store.
Bigger, harder to maintain Monsters??
Are you going to have worksheet based user defined functions to help people simplify those monster VLOOKUP/INDEX/OFFSET formulas?
I would like to see a Duplicate function, instead of having to write a custom formula every time, or create a Wizard that will walk people through the process. Hopefully you've increased the cell character display limitation (1024). I work at a help desk, and these are some of the most frequent questions I get. I constantly have to remind my customers that Excel is not a word processor. Otherwise, the Row / Column increases sound fantastic, as it will reduce support calls for Access, which has a much higher learning curve.
Wow that's great -- I can't wait to hear more.
But can my fellow blog readers pah-lease give David a wee bit of breathing room and NOT bombard him with your questions????
Why have a restriction on number of rows and columns at all?
There is no restriction on how long a MS Word document can be, so why should Excel be different?
