Excel Genius

My company wants to put everyone onto Microsoft Office 365 - the free, open version, and uninstall the standard Microsoft applications from our computers. How will this effect Excel functionality?

Do you guys have specific examples of things that don’t work on the online open free version of excel, so that I can tell them why it’s a bad idea? I have googled it but can’t find anything specific!

Not sure for all of them but Macabacus and potentially TTS macros will not work if application isn’t installed locally. More of a finance thing so may not matter

Macros that interact with your Windows shared drives will bug out, and some of these are potentially old automated processes that operations folks won't be aware of. Make sure to assess all of your macro enabled workbooks and models to ensure compatibility. On top of that, add-ins like Bloomberg API won't work which could be disruptive for some groups

Online excel sheets have size limitations and cannot handle many of the large files I use each day. Plus they are slower. Also you cannot work offline if you don’t have an application as well. One nice feature is that they can be collaborative. But use that as a feature in tabs un with a normal desktop application, not in lieu of.

I don't think you can reference cells in other workbooks. Or copy tabs from another workbook.
