Hi all. I'm having a problem with Excel 2019. I can't open the VB editor at all. It's unavailable or greyed out. To me, this means that there is something wrong with the installation of Office 2019. I havern't had any other problems with any other Office programs as yet as this was just installed. I use VB editor a lot and am now stranded until I can fix this problem. Please help.

I suggest to open Office setup and have it do an on-line repair of itself.

Thanks Jan. I did eventually try that ( only after I posted a cry for help ) and it worked. Happy about that. Thanks anyway for trying to help me. You can also check out some cool features that I have found. Just check this screen shot out.

Tell me what you see that's different to your spread sheet.

 

 

Are you referring to the stock thing on the right-hand side?

No Jan,

 

Look just after the Developer tab. You'll see Assistants and Time Savers. I just wanted to know if you have these useful tabs or not.

No I do not. Those must be from add-ins you installed?
