    "Microsoft Excel cannot access the file 'F:\*************. There are several reasons:

    * The file name or path does ot exist.

    *The file is being used by another program.

    *The workbook you are trying to save has the same name as

    a currently open workbook."


    This started occurring after trying to uninstall Sophos

    Anti-Virus.

    "To register Adodb.dll in the GAC, follow these steps:
    • Click Start and then click Run.
    • In the Run dialog box, type the following command, and then click OK: C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705\gacutil /i C:\Program Files\Microsoft.NET\Primary Interop Assemblies\adodb.dll"

    Typing the first command as mentioned in the site gets me this message. What do i do now??

  3. Office 365 or Office 2016


    Under info for the new office listing on My Visual Studio it states.

    Office Professional Plus 2016 (x86 and x64) - (Multiple Languages)
    To obtain the product, follow these steps:

    Step 1: Get your product key by clicking the ‘Get key’ button on the right.

    Step 2: Go to the Office website by clicking the ‘Get it now’ button.

    Step 3: Enter your 25-character product key and continue as directed on the site.

    Released: 9/23/2015

    And for the discontinued it states.

    Office Professional Plus 2016 (Discontinued)
    Info
    Keys
    Office Professional Plus 2016 (x86 and x64) - DVD (English)
    No additional details are available for this file.

    Released: 9/22/2015
    SHA1: 213A8A0F8849516704101CB6C49F6A027B0D6D5F
    File name: en_office_professional_plus_2016_x86_x64_dvd_6962141.iso

    I'm thinking option one is going to be my only option. I'm fine with that as long as I can get Outlook to work with my ISP's pop3 e-mail. Last time I tried that with the new 2016 install I could not get it to work, no way no how. All the same settings that work with the ISO install?

    EDIT: I should mention, for me as far as I know, neither of these options are a subscription. They use two different keys but they are perpetual one time activation licenses. I only ran the new download briefly though, as I could not get outlook to work. I bailed and went back to what works.

    cannot save files in Office 2016 --message

    Office 2016 programs are not grouped under Microsoft Office 2016

    Hi,

    To address your concern, you can compress the view of your Microsoft Office programs inside a single folder in the Start Menu. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs.
    • Right-click on a blank space, click New > Folder.
    • Rename the New Folder as Microsoft Office 2016 (or any name that you want).
    • Highlight all the Microsoft Office 2016 programs.
    • On your keyboard, press Ctrl + X (make sure that all programs are highlighted).
    • Double-click Microsoft Office 2016 folder (the folder that you've created).
    • On your keyboard, press Ctrl + V.
    • Wait until all the programs are moved to the new folder.
    • Check the Start Menu if the settings are saved.

    Let us know the outcome after you perform steps above for us to assist you further.
