Microsoft Office for Mac 16.36

Microsoft has issued its monthly update of Office for Mac, version 16.36. Excel now enables you to automatically use new data type values (such as a possible stock or geographic location) and offers to convert it to the appropriate connected data type (Stocks or Geography). The spreadsheet app also improves printing worksheets with different orientations and introduces Workbook Statistics to give you an overview of the content of a workbook. Outlook gains the capability to view events and appointments while offline. ($149.99 for a one-time purchase, $99.99/$69.99 annual subscription options, free update through Microsoft AutoUpdate, release notes, macOS 10.10+)

  1. Autoupdate 4.22 will not work with MacOS 10.15.4. Continually returns “Update error.”

  2. Funny you mention that. Maybe it’s unrelated, but the new Autoupdate started crashing on my Mac every night since the update. This is on Mojave. I would arrive in the morning and there was no GUI. Right-clicking the dock icon just revealed App not Responding. I had to force quit it. This happened for several days straight until I finally tried rebooting my Mac. Since then, no issues.

  3. I’m seeing the same thing as Simon on one of my Mojave machines (though I haven’t restarted yet; I haven’t checked the iMac, so it may be there as well.) I have an unresponsive AutoUpdate icon in my dock at the moment, and have for a couple of days now.

  4. Exactly the same for me. Very annoying

  5. A new sub-version of MAU 4.22 came through today, identifying itself as 4.22.20032003, for whatever that’s worth. The April 14th version had no trouble installing todays version on my iMac running Catalina 10.15.4 (19E287) (the first Mac I’ve tried it on).

  6. Worked for me after a reboot.
