I have 2 computers with windows 10 the other one has 2002 office on it and works very nice this computer office 2002 excel would not work right so I ordered office 2003 and it has the same problem

you can inter anything you want in sell [a-1] but it will not let you put any entry in cell [b-1] it just locks up and shut down

waiting for suggestions Kyle

Just dump M$ Office and down load Libre Office. It's compatible, very similar and free.

Of course it has a Spreadsheet that is compatible with Excel and Windows 10. It also has a Word Processor and a Database

I used Libre Office (LO) and whilst it can open existing Excel files it loses all the Excel formatting and cell contents became simple alpha-numeric characters. For example suppose an Excel cell "A2" contained the formula "=B3+B5" and the answer in "A2" was "8" then, in LO, the formula was replaced by the character "8" and so any changes to cells B3 or B5 did not affect cell "A2" which they should have done. LO is probably good for new spreadsheets but not for working with existing Excel files. I had a few Excel files so I was forced to go back to MS Office.

P.S. I do not accept Contact Requests. Sorry, but it is too risky in this day and age.

response to your email. If you download LibreOffice > Copy and Paste one of your Spreadsheets > Open the Copy in LibreOffice > If you don't like what you find > No loss.

p.s. I have never heard of Wiggi's problem, so I can't comment

thanks everbody what can you all tell me about [[open office 2018 ]]

Well, its free so worth a try. I have had no problem using it to open and work on existing files created in Excel. The only thing I find is that you still have to learn where some of the Menu items are but all the main ones are pretty obvious.

When you install do the main Program first THEN the Help Package. During the first one opt for the Custom Install NOT Typical. You associate everything with the MS Office equivalents and choose .XML formats which are the latest MS formats.

Good luck.
