Hi and Welcome. My Name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you today with your question. This is a complicated error which is caused by corruption of Office files or system OS X. Since this started after installing OS X, I'd recommend to try the following options first. Go to Applications > Utilities folder and open Disk Utility. In Disk Utility, select your hard disk in left column (the first one in the list will be your hard disk), click First Aid button and run it. Repair if asked. Then download and run this update --> Also reinstall Office from the Office installation discs. These steps will replace corrupted files with new one. After that, open Office. Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting
