Are you able to assist with microsoft excel issues on the mac?

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

Not sure... i do think it is excel 2016 though.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Excel?

I was using it when excel crashed. i had not saved my work at all. i am wondering if there is some sort of auto recovery of unsaved documents.

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
