Things You Cannot Do in Excel Online

Have you had a chance to use Excel Online Yet?

Microsoft Office Online

Well I have had a little time recently when I was working away from my office with a client.

Here is the scenario:

A) A User asked me how to do something in Excel 2013

“I found that I could not create the secondary vertical axis after several tries using Excel 2013”

B) I didn’t have my Laptop that has Excel 2013 as the client is using Excel 2003 and Excel 2010

“I thought to myself, there is no way that this can be true with Excel 2013, lets see if I can replicate the issue.  But I didn’t have my Surface nor Laptop that both have Excel 2013 loaded on them. 

C) I thought to myself

“So, what could I do?  Well, Excel Online must be just like Excel 2013, right?”


Check out this quick video on what I found about this question and a few others regarding what you cannot do with Excel Online Charts:

Have you used Excel Online and what do you think about it?  Let me know in the comments below.




PS: I don’t have any problems creating a secondary axis in Excel 2013, in case you were wondering 🙂
