For problems not addressed by the troubleshooting guides in this section of the documentation, please contact us for assistance.
Before Requesting Support
- Confirm that troubleshooting steps in this section of the documentation do not address your problem. If your problem is related to add-in loading or installation, they almost certainly do.
- Check the general usage tips for working with Macabacus add-ins if your problem is not related to loading/installation or Internet connectivity.
- Check the release notes to determine if a software update has already addressed your problem.
- Update your Macabacus software to the latest version and try to reproduce the problem, if possible.
- Determine if the problem is document- or application-level by trying to reproduce the problem in a new file—like a blank workbook.
- Determine if the problem is related to Macabacus or another add-in by disabling other add-ins and trying to reproduce the problem.
- Check the "Show add-in user interface errors" box under
File > Options > Advanced > General. If this box was not originally checked, reproduce the problem and note any new error messages that appear.
Submit a Support Request
In Excel, PowerPoint, or Word, click the
Macabacus > Help > Email Support button to compose a new support request email in Outlook that includes attachments we may need to investigate your problem. If you do not use Outlook, email firstname.lastname@example.org from your email client/service. So that we can resolve your issue as quickly as possible, be sure your email includes:
- A description of the problem and the steps and/or conditions required to reproduce it
- The result of each troubleshooting step performed in accordance with this documentation, if applicable
- Screen shots of any error messages or other relevant information
- The affected document, if the problem is related to a specific file (see above). We cannot effectively troubleshoot a document-level problem without the affected file, or at least a sanitized version of it with confidential information removed
- Your Macabacus settings (an XML file), if not already attached
- A diagnostics report, if you use Outlook for email. Otherwise, include Information about your computing environment such as your Windows, Office, and Macabacus versions, and what other add-ins you have installed
