Hello,

 

when you follow the steps in this support article, where do things go wrong for you?

Its working fine now. Thank you. I had to switch from deferred channel to current channel

I am using Office 2016 pro plus. How do you switch from deferred to current channel.

Hello,

 

that depends. If you are using a consumer license like Office 365 Home, you can do it yourself. This page has some good info and steps

https://www.msoutlook.info/question/office-update-channels

 

If you are on an enterprise license, the channel will be determined by your IT administrators and you will need to contact them to see if you can switch to a different channel. 

Hi,

 

I have payments data assigned to a state/location. I've been trying to create a filled map chart in excel with only the locations where data is available.

 

Excel selects the right states, but won't allow me to scale the plot area to enlarge the visualization.

Major issue, very stressful. Please help.
