I am looking for a tablet that can run excel macros. Information via googling hasn't been very helpful so I'm trying here. Does anyone know of a tablet that can run excel with macros? Or the specifications necessary for a tablet to run excel with macros?

 

Thanks in advance.

Try a Microsoft Surface Pro

Hello @Laura_Long ,

 

Excel VBA only runs on Excel desktop applications, i.e. Excel for Windows or Excel for Mac. The tablet versions for Excel for Android /iPad do not run VBA.

 

You can use a Windows based tablet that can run the desktop version of Excel.

 

@Ingeborg Hawighorst or anyone else, do you know if this tablet will run excel and then run macros?

@DaleRosenberg  The tablet comes with Windows 10 Home, so it will run desktop Excel and will be able to run macros in the desktop app.
