Unusable Excel on Mac - colorful spinning wheel after every step

New Contributor



I am experiencing issue with freshly installed Office 365 on my MacBook Pro 16` (2,6 GHz 6core Intel Core i7, 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4, MacOS Catalina 10.15.4), no available updates either for MacOS or Office365, no plugins, etc.


When I open excel spreadsheet (8MB, 120 sheets with macros), excel gets impossible to use. I have spinning wheel literally after every click. When I wait 30 sec, I can click again then wait again. However, spreadsheet is normally working on less powerful windows machines.


I tried to boot in safe mode with no improvement to excel performance.


I am starting to wonder, if it is possible to even use excel on Mac?


Thanks for reply, Tomas
