Applications :: When Microsoft Releasing Newer Version Of Microsoft Office For Mac?
Oct 2, 2009
Does anybody know when Microsoft plans on releasing a newer version of Microsoft Office for Mac? One of my co-workers currently own the 2008 version and he's really unhappy with it. He has an excel file that's around 4MB in filesize, containing some 11,000 rows and a bunch of columns too and it's really slow to work with (he has a 1 year old MacBook Pro) and some times excel also "runs out of memory" it says and the application just freezes. It should be updated properly etc, but I wonder if maybe a newer version more suited for Snow Leopard, might be released soon?
I'm not sure if this is the right place for my question, but I wanted to get opinions from you guys. I use Microsoft Word, Excel and sometimes, Power Point quite often at college. They have PCs of course... and I have an iMac. And I wanted to get Microsoft Office at home.
Now, I was looking on the web for different prices and all that. I wasn't sure between buying Windows XP (because I work with XP at college, not Vista) and downloading Bootcamp, or Microsoft Office for Mac. Also, I wasn't sure if the Mac version was similar to the one for Windows... and also if I could transfer files from the PC to Mac versions without problems.
Basically, money wise, if I buy one or the other, there isn't too much of a difference. But I haven't looked everywhere for the best prices available, although I'm guessing it's pretty much the same most places (internet).
I am running Mac OS 10.5.8 on a 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. When I first got this machine, I basically transferred everything from my old computer to the new. One product which I accidentally included was an ancient version of Microsoft Office v.X. Yeah, it is so old that Microsoft doesn't even support it.
Anyway, my thought was that I would use Apple's iWork since I'm not really using it for a business application anymore. But recently my husband bought me Office:mac 2008 and I would like to install it.
First though, I would like to get rid of the old Office program and all its component parts. I looked to see if the install disk had an uninstall program with it; but, guess what? Not. So, I'm hoping somebody here can suggest a way to clean my computer of all the Microsoft Office components.
I just made an upgrade forr my MS Office 2011 for Mac; everything went well until I started The Outlook part. I got a message that read something like: there's an old version of Microsoft Database Daemon running; delete the daemon from the start elements and restart the computer. Now my question: how do I delete this daemon?

I have been having a problem with my office:word '08. My math professor sends out documents with equations and when i open these documents the equations end up all squished up and makes it almost impossible to understand. Is there any solution to this problem?
my Brother purchased Microsoft Office 2008 for mac and gave me one of the licence codes, however - the code that I used to register my copy is apparently being used by someone else and so Microsoft Office has stopped working. I don't know whether I entered it wrong or whether the key he gave me was one of the ones that he had given to someone else...
I've now bought my own Microsoft Office, however - when I attempt to install it, it doesn't ever ask for a new 'product ID' and just proceeds with the install as normal, then later on Office stops working and tells me that I have an invalid product ID.
I have recently installed Microsoft Office on OS X 10.6. However, I am having a problem whenever I try to print from Word or any other program. The program will crash with the message 'Microsoft Word has encountered a problem and needs to close'.
I have updated both OS X and Microsoft Office to their newest versions and tried to print to two different printers, but with no avail.
I have two computers (an iMac and a MacBook). I am about to buy Office 2008 Student + Home, but I'm wondering about the activation part. Can I install it on both computers? From what I understand, the license for Office for Windows allows you to install on one desktop and one laptop. Is that true of 2008?
If not, will activation be a problem (In other words, does the activation expire, like with Windows? Meaning, I can activate it on different hardware after about 3 to 6 months)?
I've used Word on Microsoft Office X for the first time today and I am having a problem with the font suddenly appearing bigger after typing space during a sentence. Upon opening the Font Options Box the size shows unchanged.
This is very annoying and confusing!
I don't know if it makes a difference, the fact I was typing my address at the top of a letter when this was happening, although I was not using a letter template.
Every time I try to open Microsoft Word or any other Microsoft application, it says "Microsoft word has quit unexpectidly" and when I click reopen, it keeps saying the same thing. I restarted my computer, reinstalled Microsoft, and it still wont work.
I purchased Office 2008 for Mac from the Apple store at the end of August and as part of the Technology Guarantee, I'm eligible for a free upgrade to Office 2011. Purchase a qualifying Office 2008 for Mac product between Aug. 1, 2010, and Nov. 30, 2010, and you will be eligible to download Office for Mac 2011 at no additional cost* when it becomes available. My question is...should I do it? Does anyone have any experience or insight into Office 2011? Also...I'm not sure if this should be a determining factor, but my purchased copy of Office 2008 came with three product keys. Apparently if I upgrade to 2011, I only get one product key. Big deal?
Does anybody know if Microsoft released a uninstaller for office 2011 for mac, also does anybody know if there was a fix released that would stop have recovered files in the trash can each time you use messenger or any of the office applications.
I hate to beat an old drum but has anyone found out how to prevent Mac Office 2008 from jumping between spaces in leopard.
I will be using it on one space and switch to the next space then another space and bam it has moved for seemingly no reason. Now I have to go to the zoomed back view of all my spaces and drag the app back to where it was.
My daughter has been using Microsoft Office for Mac 2008 and lately it crashes repeatedly. There is one document that consistently will do this, and it is important for her to keep. It can be opened in Pages, but she insists on wanting to use Word.
I just installed Microsoft Office 2008 and have had nothing but issues since the installation.
Entourage is a nightmare. I have three different work emails that I use through it and I can barely open emails now. Especially emails with html or pictures attached. Today it's crashing on an email that has nothing attached. Here is the log for that...
Just recently all of my Microsoft Office applications have quit working - they crash as soon as they load. (Sneaky lil buggers act like they are going to work and wait 5 secs after loading a blank template and make me a lil hopeful before they close down!) I have not added any RAM or made any significant changes or updates. I am on a MacBook Pro, OS X version 10.5.8, 2 GB 667 MHz, 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo.
I am getting the following crash report: Process: Microsoft Word  Path: /Applications/Microsoft Office X/Microsoft Word Identifier: com.microsoft.Word Version: 10.0.0 (10.0.0) Code Type: PPC (Translated) Parent Process: launchd 
I am currently running a Macbook with OS X Lion 10.7.3 and need to upgrade to a Macbook Pro. On my current machine I have various applications including Microsoft Office. I frequently back up to an external drive and understand I will be able to connect that drive to my new computer and using the migration assistant, I will be able to transfer everything across. Do all files / settings get transferred across? Will MS Office be transferred or will I have to re-purchase it?

I'm having an issue with Microsoft Word 2011 Beta 6. No matter what I save, it out puts this same pink image file, that appears to repackaged as a open xml word document. A little digging with this file tells me that it contains active code, and it's origins are from the save and savex command line tools (now part of 2011 to support vb macros) Is anyone else having this issue? Does anyone know of a possible solution? I'm being accused of intentionally corrupting files at my high school....
