Every time I try to open Excel I get "Sorry, we couldn't find C:Program Files(x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office 16\LIBRARY\VtExport.xla. Is it possible it was moved, renamed or deleted?". If it has been moved or deleted then it has been done by Office. I have tried reinstalling Office and VT but still the same.

happy user

So good to have it on my laptop and phone




Very many optional features and easy to follow

Having used very old versions for many years, when I purchased my new PC with Windows 10 I had to purchase and download a new version of Office. Although previously I had the 'professional' versions, this time I opted for 'Home and Student' version. ( I am an 80 year old pensioner)

It will not allow me to save work, I have lost many assignments as it always comes up with an error message, and has made my computer crash on several occasions. Or good when my computer is brand new!

New anti Microsoft user

yet another shambolic MS office downoad

As per usual yet another Microsoft download riddled with repeated freezing, interruption of operating system downloads and having to keep refilling the payment details while this is going on! I have superfast broadband, Its a brand new laptop which I had already updated, so why do I have put up with this year after year?!!! Will never buy another windows operating system based laptop again! You have lost a customer of over 25 years.
