    20H2
    The background is that two or so weeks ago I experimented with the free substitutes, but found them difficult and lacking. Somehow a strange file appeared, STR.TLB, before Excel and any substitute would open. Neither I nor a repair man, whom I called in to solve an unrelated more serious matter could remove it. Office 2007 was uninstalled, and he temporarily replaced by LIbre Office.
    Now I find my carefully(!) guarded Office CD is missing, so will have to buy 2019.
    It being ages since downloading a commercial program, Is it best acquired from MS, or a retailer e.g. PC World. Presumably it will download directly to the hard drive. If I want to make a back up can or need I?

    :)

    Its possible you need to download the software install files from the schools website if you purchased it through the school.

    Problem arisen with re- installation of Office Home and Student 2007

    It having been lost, when I had to rest the computer, I attempted to re-install Office Home and Student 2007 today. However on opening Excel, I get Code:
    I have re-installed Office but nothing has changed. Can someone help me, please, to solve this problem?

    Has it anything to do with compatibility of Windows 10 and Office 2007? Should it have, are newer versions still available other than the rip-off Office 365? I have looked at some of the clones and spin offs. They seem clunky and odd.
