I have the same question 8. In reply to silkcityflorida's post on October 2, Problem solved with update to Office v This leads me to believe the problem only involves Excel workbooks with Macros.
Step 4: Has anyone else had this problem? By the way, I have also posted a question about this topic on a Microsoft forum and will post any responses I get on that forum to here as well. It should have been testing things all along and upon finding something, should either be prepared to fix it right away or at least quickly, or at a minimum let everyone know there is a problem and when it will be fixed, or, if absolutely necessary, indicate it will be fixed in the next release. If you want to use Office apps anywhere, this is the best solution. Mail Add-In for Excel for the Mac:
Meanwhile, as of now, it appears I might be able use the. By the way, I have also posted a question about this topic on a Microsoft forum and will post any responses I get on that forum to here as well. Oct 7, I have now done a bunch more testing and determined the problem occurs whether or not there are other apps open in the background. As far as I can tell, the problem only occurs in workbooks with Macros.
Those that only contain data and formulas and do not require user defined functions do not seem to be affected. My testing is by no means all-encompassing. Eventually, but usually within about the first 2 minutes of opening the workbook, I get the spinning beach ball so I Force Quit Excel, sending a Force Quit Report to Apple.
Then, I start Excel again by double clicking the workbook in the Finder. At this point, I always get the Excel message that Excel saved a copy before the crash and it is recommended I open that version.
I always respond Okay but have yet to see any evidence that anything was saved because every change since my last manual Save is gone. Then I repeat the methodology above. Having currently suspended all further development in Excel, I will continue to stumble along this way until the beginning of next week. Then, in the absence of any comment on this issue from Microsoft as to a timeframe for upgrades, I will begin downgrading to Yosemite.
Doing so will be painful, but I see no other choice.
For anyone who is interested, I posted this issue on answers. Here is a link to that post: I think your responder on the other forum is correct. Your looking for MS to support a product that is 3 generations behind their current release - and they've yet to fix outlook for the current version in El Capitan. As a developer you may think it's in a companies interest to keep legacy software working but how does that generate revenue if your company sells software? If you rely on legacy applications be prepared to stay behind the curve of progress for the sake of stability, that's the rule, not the exception.
Even the current release does not function in ElCap. Microsoft is working on it. So hopefully there will be an update soon. I have been waiting for a very long time for the next version, and when it arrives I might be interested in its new capabilities, will absolutely want everything to at least continue working as it is today and will certainly not expect to see anything eliminated. But I respectfully disagree with the second part of your comments because, in the meantime, MS has a responsibility to it's current user community.
It should have been testing things all along and upon finding something, should either be prepared to fix it right away or at least quickly, or at a minimum let everyone know there is a problem and when it will be fixed, or, if absolutely necessary, indicate it will be fixed in the next release. But the current user community should not be left hanging, or left in the dark as to what is going on. If you don't pay attention to your current user base, they might abandon ship and when the new version is available, there might be far fewer users interested in upgrading.
Then what happens to your revenue? Surely, a company their size can afford to keep a few people, or maybe even a couple hundred people, if necessary, dedicated to such efforts. Oct 7, 1: Oct 7, 2: I have not done exhaustive testing yet, but so far I have poked around in my problematic workbook for a good 10 minutes and have yet to see a beach ball.
I installed it and so far, so good. I have an appointment now, but later this evening, I will check it out further.
El Capitan on a MacBook Pro (with SSD). Office Word and Excel have features that have been stripped in Office versions. This update provides the following fixes to improve Mac OS X El Capitan compatibility: The hang situation that occurs during an account sync.
Oct 7, 4: I have now exercised my workbook and all its logic quite thoroughly and can not find any remaining problems, so the update that fixed the Office Outlook problem also fixed my Office Excel problem! Oct 8, 5: MS says it repairs a hanging sync issue but I don't know if they snuck anything else in the code. Probably watch and see what else it "may" fix with
