Does the App Store open at all?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes, but I don't see excel in there.

That's ok - I just wanted to know that you have a recent version of Mac OS, and that it is functional.

Do you remember how or where you purchased the product?


Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Sorry for delay, I had to attend meeting. I do not recall where the program came from because I did not load it. I suspect that maybe it was not purchased?


I think that is very likely - you probably had a demo, which expired.

If you still need to use Excel, you can simply download and install it directly from Microsoft.

Here is the direct link to the product:
