Microsoft Office Excel Reviews

Asks for My Password Repeatedly

about Microsoft Office Excel · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful Report as spam

Whenever I try to open Excel, it always asks for my Office 365 school or work password no matter how many times I have entered it before. I contacted Microsoft support, but they transferred me twice, and then said technical support would cost $149. I contacted my university support, and they said to re-download Office, so I'm trying that now.

Microsoft Excel supports checkboxes differently from iWork Numbers. In Excel, go to Excel menu –> Preferences –> View –> In Ribbon, Show –> Developer tab. Then, go to Developer –> Check Box. But the check boxes overlay on top of the spreadsheet –– they do not go in line with the cells. On the other hand, in Numbers, go to Format –> Cell –> Data Format –> Checkbox. The format of the cell changes to an inline checkbox which formulae can refer to via the address of the cell. When exporting a spreadsheet from Numbers format to Excel format, the checkboxes turn into boolean text –– either TRUE or FALSE.

Two contradicting that makes no sense to me:

  1. Max file length 260 characters.
  2. If you set the character limit, means somehow you do take the FULL path into consideration right? then why can't I open 2 excel with the same name? Don't shove the responsibility to COM server or the user, this is obviously flaw! LibreOffice does not have such problem.

To be fair, I still prefer its UI (ribbon and stuff) compare to LibreOffice, may it be habit or what not.

As much as I like Open Source software, I have not found a proper replacement for Excel. Excel just rules... I do hope one day that this will be different. Looking at you Calc!

Excel is useful for keeping track of inventories and pretty much anything else. But it can be confusing to use.

It's a great program, I use it a lot for money. I recently became Office certified. Excel looks like just a grid, but it is VERY complex, endless amounts of formulas. Being certafied will make you a lot of money. Very helpful unless you're doing it in school, then it's just hell

Excel 2016 is a downgrade from 2003

  • You have to jump through multiple hoops to save files
  • The cursor slides around everywhere as you're typing
  • CRASHES. How much of a joke is Microsoft that they can't even write stable software for their own operating system?

Yeah. Are you talking for OS or Windows? I am not a fan of any new Word versions since maybe 2003, too, minus 2011 for Mac. And then they screwed that up too.

Windows. I will post more complaints as I see them :D
