Suddenly I am unable to use my Microsoft Excel. Says I need to update. Yesterday I purchased XLS Editor-Excel and it still doesn't work. Ellen Row

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your computer or device?

Windows 10

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update your Excel?

Don't know it was working in December and January 2018.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

I am kind of illiterate, my husband usually does this for me.

I don't know, as I said my husband generally takes care of any problems that I have.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
That will put me into over-draft.

When you open excel, go to FILE menu then click ACCOUNT

You should see the update option here

Do you see it?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
