Thread: Does Excel 2007 SP3 work without issue on Windows 10?

    Does Excel 2007 SP3 work without issue on Windows 10?

    The subject pretty much covers it! But, I have been using Excel 2007 for quite a while as you can imagine. What I am afraid of is going to Office 365 and I'll have to spend the rest of my life tweaking programs to work (if they do at all) in '365. I am trying desperately to save to replace my 10+ year old craptop...

    Is anyone using Excel 2007 SP3 on Windows 10? Any issues?

    Or, I guess another way to ask is, does anyone have VBA from 2007 and using it in 365? Any issues? Nightmare to use? Tons of tweaks necessary? I actually decided to humor myself and ask on a Microsoft chat the same question and they said absolutely no issues whatsoever. That leads me to believe there will be a MILLION issues.

    Anyone?

    Thank you for any advice.

    I run Excel 2007 SP3 on Win 10. Runs flawlessly, no issues except the "built in MS amenities" (* sarcasm *).

    Two months ago I tried going to Excel 2019. I personally experienced numerous issues, freezes, file corruption on previously created workbooks in Excel 2007.

    The biggest issue I experienced was having to tweak previously created workbooks in 2007. A line of code here ... a line of code there. Nothing specific or
    a repeating pattern (same commands, DIMs, etc) ... just the annoying "I don't like that line of code so I'll error it out and make you do some tweaking."

    I gave up. Went back to Excel 2007 and I'm staying here till Hell Freezes Over.

    Thank you for that. That exactly answers my question, and because of that, I'll stay with 2007 until, like you, hell freezes over, thaws and freezes again.

    I just wish something could be done to record macros that deal with EVERYTHING that can be recorded. I thought of some kind of add-in, but I dont' think it's possible - of course, it's hard coded. I'm not smart enough to be able to figure out things like that. Thank you again!
