MacBook Air :: Excel Office 2011- No Standard Toolbar And Resizing Windows

Two strange issues that I can't fix on my new MB Air 13 with MS Office for MAC 2011 and Excel.

1) I can't get the Standard Toolbar to show up when I open a new worksheet. I go to view, toolbars and then see that the Standard Toolbar is checked, but it doesn't show up. The only way to get it to show up is to do a series of steps:
- uncheck Standard Toolbar menu and go back out;
- go back in and check the Standard Toolbar and back to the spreadsheet
- the Standard Toolbar still doesn't show up;
- so then I click on the Layout tab on the ribbon and then it shows up!

2) I can't see the bottom of the window/spreadsheet - which means I can't resize the window. To resolve this, I have to do these steps:
- open system preferences and change my MBA screen resolution from 1440 x 900 down to 1280 x 800
- then go back to the spreadsheet, and resize the window (make it smaller on the screen)
- go back and resize the window back to 1440 x 900
- and then close the system preferences at this point, the Excel spreadsheet window is smaller and I can see/use the bottom of the screen to resize, etc.

Can't figure out what setting I have wrong or why I can't get Excel for Mac 2011 to work correctly on the MB Air screen.

Software :: Office Mac 2011 / Excel Macros Restored?
I've seen conflicting information about the new Office Mac release. Have Macros been restored to Excel? And if so, what language are they using? Has anyone tried them or tried to import Macros from Excel 4 or Excel 5 macro languages?

MacBook Air :: 11.6 Resolutions And Office 2011 System Requirements
This question might be a bit premature, however, given the 11.6 resolution, and Office 2011 system requirements (res req. is: 1280 x 800), do you think Office 2011 will install and run on the 11.6 Air?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Excel And Word 2011 Hang On Saving On IMac But Are Fine On Macbook Air
I am running Lion 10.7.3 on a 2.8GHz CoreDuo iMac from 2007 and on a Macbok Air 2.13 GHz Core duo from 2010.  The iMac has 4GB of RAM the Macbook has 2 GB RAM. 

I run Microsoft Office 2011 on both machines.  For the same file the Macbook operates normally on Word and Excel.  The iMac is slow at best and when I try a Save As it hangs for up to 15 minutes brfor letting me change the FIle Name. This effectively makes it unusable. 

As far as I can tell the set up of Office on both Machines is identical and I have eliminated duplicate Fonts as suggested by some posts but the problem remains.  I have checked Activity Monitor and I am not getting any Page Outs so RAM does not appear to be an issue.

MacBook Air :: Can Access Applications Such As 'Pages' Alongside Microsoft Office (word, Excel Etc)
At the moment I do not have Microsoft Office for my mac but I am looking into it as I will be going back to study soon and know I will encounter problems when it comes to transfering documents from my mac to a PC with Microsoft software. However I really love the mac application 'Pages' for personal projects so I am just wondering if I can still use it alongside Microsoft or I must give it up?

Windows On Mac :: MS Office Suite - 2010 Via VMFusion 3.0 Or 2011?
I'm switching over to a MBP in a couple weeks after being a lifetime user of a Windows-based computer. I am an engineer and for the foreseeable future will be using a Windows-based computer, namely the Microsoft Office Suite. This might be a lame, but one of my biggest concerns is the transitioning process that I would have to go through to learn the new Mac Excel 2011. I know exactly where everything is the Windows version, but spent more time than I thought I would have to when I went to visit the Apple Store and played around with Mac's version of Excel.

The Microsoft-Apple designers definitely didn't have strict limitations on making the two versions to be close copies, in terms of table structures. In theory, I would like to use Window's Office 2010 on my new MBP instead of Mac Office 2011. However, I'm interested in hearing advice on why this might be a good or bad idea. Is there anybody else that chooses to do this, or are there gains by using Mac's Office software exclusively that I haven't considered.

Intel Mac :: Forgot Password And Cannot Reinstall Office For 2008 Since Uploaded Free Office 2011
I forgot my administrator's password for my home computer.  I purchased office 2008 for mac with a free upgrade to office 2011.  I upgraded it to 2011 when it came out (late 2010/early 2011).  I have since made a new password and forgotten what it is. The mac tells me to reinstall my microsoft office but when I do, with the office 2008 disc, it tells me I have MORE RECENT SOFTWARE and to use that.  I did it on line and cannot find it again.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Read Data In Older Microsoft Office Documents With Office 2011
I updated to Lion on my desktop a few months ago and I swear now I can't read older Microsoft word and Excel documents correctly on this computer using Office 2011. The document opens and you can see all of the data in a preview window (from finder) but once it opens fully the data/words are not there. I have Lion on a brand new Macbook Pro I just purchased and installed the Microsoft Office 2011 and it opened the excel document I was having trouble with fine.I can't find many links for Office for Mac issues.

MacBook :: Excel 2011 Crashes On Launch?
I've had great success with Excel 2011 on OS 10.6.8.  Up until today.  Now, Excel crashes on launch, tries to recover, and crashes again.  I read the previous comments about a) hold down shift key and launch  and b) delete the /plist file.  Tried both, no success. I can still launch Excel 2008, fyi.  And Word, etc, all other MS office products...

MacBook Air :: Installing Microsoft Office 2008 Via Remote Disk On A Windows Vista Machine
I have installed the software on my Windows Vista desktop to allow Remote Disk sharing. I am able to access the drive, but the problem is the installation fails every single time. I have searched and found an article that says this can be resolved via an ad hoc network. Unfortunately that does not work for me. Has anyone else had an issue with this and been able to resolve it?

MacBook Pro :: Save Microsoft Office 2011 To Hard Drive?
I'm preparing to restore my MacBook Pro to factory settings, so I'm putting all the files i'd like to keep onto an external hard drive. I know it's a really dim question but I was wondering if I save Microsoft Office onto the hard drive, am I able to use it again? Obviously at the time I purchased it I used a purchase key thingy, so I wasn't sure if I would have to re-install it and it would ask for another key...

So I got Office 2011; it's pretty good stuff. Unlike Windows based systems, it did not remove Office 2008 which is different. I am wondering if there is any reason that I should or should not remove 2008 since I have 2011 (exact same programs).

MacBook Pro :: Office 2011 For Mac To Import PST Files From Outlook (from PC)?
I am using a trial version of Office 2011 for Mac! When I try to import the outlook pst files from my pc and follow the correct procedure it doesn´t work. Outlook only says that it has encountered an unknown problem and is shutting down.I talked with Microsoft support but they don´t support their trial versions only premium.That I think is funny because if the trial version is not working how can you trust them that the premium version is working.

Applications :: Office 2008 Toolbar Icons Missing
I am using Microsoft Office for Mac 2008, which has been performing fine for many months. Now all of a sudden the icons are missing on my toolbars. All that it shows in the toolbar window, (both standard and format toolbars), is the text without the icons, with just a blank dark area where the tool icons should be, leaving the toolbar impossible to use in any practical way. No amount of selecting or de-selecting the toolbars via drop down window "view", or changing the option for "text and icons", or "resetting� the toolbars in �customise� will change this situation. The problem has occurred in all of "word", "excel", "PowerPoint" and �Entourage�. I have tried reinstalling office from the original CD, but the problem persists. I have even quarantined the �normal.dotm� file before reinstalling office, but it simply created a new "normal" file with the same result. No icons on the toolbars. I am using OS X leopard. I haven't yet resorted to reinstalling leopard, but what else is there?!? Any clues to what has caused this to suddenly occur?

Windows On Mac :: Resizing BootCamp Partition - Snow Leapord & Windows 7
Basically, I created a BC partition for my W7, however, I only gave it 32gigs of space (I only wanted to use it for gaming).However, now I want to install Autodesk 3D Studio Max 2010 on W7, however I don't have enough space on my BC partition to do that...I've researched enough to know that I will need to use one of the following programs:I've read up on all the programs and done some research on them.
Ive noticed most people are having problems with all of these programs when trying to backup a W7 image whilst on Snow Leapord (Mac OS x 10.6, which I am running)I know that is the function of the 3 applications above... But to my knowledge... In theory - I should be able to just backup my W7 using a reliable backup program (Can someone recommend any?) and then delete the existing BootCamp partition, create a new one of 100gig and then just load up the backed up image for Windows 7...

When I send my .xls files from my Mac (Office 2008) to my boss's Windows machine (Office 2003), he gets an error message when he attempts to open the excel spreadsheet: Excel has encountered an error and must shut down. I've sent files to other computers and not had a problem, and my boss has received other excel files and been able to open them. So it must be something between these two machines/softwares that is affecting it. Any suggestions or ideas? I can add any additional info you need.
