Customer Question
I have a MacBook...

I have a MacBook Pro and bought Microsoft Office 2016. I am having trouble with it. First I have 297 Excel spreadsheets that were on on Excel 2011. The Spell check will not work and I have the Force Quit Excel before I can open any other sheets. It also won't allow me to use Numbers in the cell format.

Technician's Assistant: Are you getting any error messages? Have you rearranged your file folders recently?

No

Technician's Assistant: What does your screen look like when you try to open Excel?

It will open up correctly as long as I don't use spell check.

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

Yes, When I try to format a cell the Number setting always places 2 decimal points instead.

What Customers are Saying:

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
