Rated 4 out of5 by fromAll features work fantastic, you just have to knowAll apps within Excel work great. I love it. I have tried earlier versions of Excel and this is the best.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromThe bestIt works with everything. I don't get what all of the other people are talking about. I think this is their best one yet.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromDoesn't work with 32 bit Office?Do not buy this product unless you have all 64 bit Office and system! How can Microsoft sell this product! They have some of the most brilliant software engineers in the world but they can't make their own product work with older versions? Ridiculous!

Rated 1 out of5 by fromThe price.The price is too high. I would have loved it if it was free but why is it so much? I thought I could look up to Microsoft to help me with school... Obviously not.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromWorst Commercial software I have ever used.I have used excel for years for the majority of my working day. I have built complex spreadsheets topping 30Mb on excel 2003, 2007 and 2010 with no problems. I have always raved at how powerful and useful excel is. This version however, is so bad that a "one sheet" workbook crashes if I try to copy some data from a different spreadsheet and paste as values. I have had a spreadsheet crash and revert to a previous version 10+ "saves" ago losing over an hour of work. This version is so bad and infuriating, if I could seek compensation from Microsoft for the amount of hours lost over the past two months since "upgrading" I would most definitely do so. It is criminal that this version has been made available to the public.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromExcellent programI looked forward to getting this b/c of the Power Pivot feature. Excel is one of, if not my favorite of the Office programs. I have an online subscription to Office 365 Personal 2016, and the Excel in that program does NOT contain Power Pivot. Microsoft told me, at least as of 7/2/2016, it is only in Excel 2016 Commercial Standalone (the higher priced of the two standalones offered). It is also in MS Office Professional Plus 2016. When I downloaded the Commercial Standalone version of Excel today, it seemlessly added Power Pivot to the Excel that I do have via my Office 365 subscription. You will not end up with the full Office Suite and a 2nd version of Excel Standalone on your computer--it makes the change to your existing version of Excel. Just thought I would let people know all of the above b/c I had a hard time finding this information on the net where there is a mixture of opinions and experiences. I would like to see Microsoft dedicate a page to explaining the Power Pivot add-in, how to get it, and answering everyone's questions.

Rated 1 out of5 by fromWorst Excel everI have used Excel for financial analysis and modeling about 6 or 7 hours a day for at least 15 years. Every version is less stable than the one before it but this one is terrible. I even bought a machine with 24 G of RAM to run complex spreadsheets and this version of Excel crashes probably 3 to 20 times a day. I have had to dumb down templates I used in previous versions and they still don't work. I'd give this zero stars if I could.
