    Excel 2016 cannot record macro or add ActiveX control in v.1809


    This thing, with version 1809, is getting better and better every day. *Banghead

    I just found out that I can neither record macros in Excel 2016 x64 nor I can add ActiveX controls.

    That's what I'm getting, when trying either one of them:


    Excel 2016 cannot record macro or add ActiveX control in v.1809 [​IMG]



    As it turns out, I'm not the only one in this world having this issue. And how could I possibly be, when we're talking about the Redmond geniuses?

    In the Microsoft Community a lot of people have similar issues.
    One user has stated that after installing Windows 10 Build 18309.rs_prerelease.181220-1256, the problem is resolved.

    Does anyone have similar problems?

    :)

    Can't Open Excel file with ActiveX Controls on my Windows phone (W10)

    But Excel is a Windows software!

    And if no phone can open an Excel spreadsheet with ActiveX enabled, than what's the point in buying Windows phones?

    There's no point in buying any phone then as no phone will open an ActiveX enabled spreadsheet!!!

    Excel isn't a "Windows" file.

    No mobile device on the market supports ActiveX or macros in an Office document.
