My name is Daniel.

I had opened "Excel" a few minutes ago, i opened the "Developer Mode" like it writing in the instrucrion.

But now i have a problem, though the "Developer Mode" is working now, i can't turn on the "Design Mode".

I ask please help me.

To turn on the Design Mode in Excel 365, you need to first make sure that the Developer tab is visible in the ribbon. If it is not visible, you can enable it by going to File -> Options -> Customize Ribbon and checking the Developer checkbox under Main Tabs.

Once the Developer tab is visible, you can turn on Design Mode by clicking on the Design Mode button in the Controls group of the Developer tab.


Hope its helps!


Okey i will try it.

thank you very much:smiling_face_with_smiling_eyes:.


I have the same problem as Daniel but the Design Mode button is grayed out and when I click on it nothing happens. Any suggestion?
