Macabacus and Microsoft (for the most part) no longer support Internet Explorer 10 and prior versions. Please consider upgrading your browser.

Office 2007 Limitations

Excel, PowerPoint, and Word 2007 lack important functionality found in later versions, so some Macabacus features may not be available or may not work the same in Office 2007.

Limitations of Office 2007 should not generally preclude Macabacus' use, but are detailed below for full disclosure. If you are still using Office 2007, we strongly recommend upgrading. Macabacus will discontinue support for Office 2007 when Microsoft does.
