I'm using Microsoft Excel for MAC version 16.51 on a MacBook Pro 2020 with the M1 Chip.

Have a Microsoft 365 Family account.

 

When attempting to use the STOCKHISTORY function, I get an error message

"not signed in". What fixes this problem?

 

Thanks,

Timothy Sharp

Hi @Magic960 

 

You are running into error because your are not signed into you Microsoft Office account, the STOCKHISTORY feature is exclusively available for subscription users.

 

If you are already a subscription user then make sure you are signed in into you account

Thanks Faraz! That’s just it, I am signed in to my account which according to the requirements Microsoft 365 Family should be able to use STOCKHISTORY.

Realize now using the web-based Excel the function will work. Desktop version or does not work even when signed in. Thanks for your help.
