The version of word and excel that was included with your laptop was a trial version which allows you to use the applications from Microsoft Office 25 times. On the 26th try you will only have viewing / reading functions.

I hope this information is helpful. Please take a moment to rate this solution.

Do you have a formula in Microsoft Excel that a value can convert to a word...(Ex. 15,000 then it will convert to in words fifteen Thousand..)thanks. need immediate reply.


Hi enelrah_mel0,

You can create a function called SpellNumber using the Visual Basic Editor in the Microsoft Excel to spell the number.

  1. Please Open Microsoft Excel. Then press Alt + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor.
  2. Then, click "Insert" option above the Visual Basic Editor window and select "Module".
  3. Then, in the Book1 Module1 (Code) window, paste the below code there. (pasted in the next post separately for your convenience)
  4. Then, press Alt+Q to close the Visual Basic Editor window.
  5. After that, please type the formula " =SpellNumber( * )" in the Excel Sheet and press the Enter Key.
  6. Then, save the Excel Sheet.
eg: =SpellNumber(A1)

Where A1 is the first cell in the excel sheet.


Good Luck!

Please post back the result and let me know if you require further assistance.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I need to download excel urgently i need t work on a document and can't cause i don't have excel


It may not be practical to purchase a copy of Microsoft Office, depending on your financial situation. But you can use open-source software to open and edit spreadsheets, even files that were created in Excel.

You can use LibreOffice: http://www.libreoffice.org/
Or OpenOffice: http://www.openoffice.org/

I got a new laptop but it dosnt have microsoft excel. arnt all laptop saposse to have it


No MS Excel is a part of the MS Office suite and comes seperately from some computers. Some brand new computers may come with a trial of the office suite, but not all computers come with office on it.

I can't write words in excel or word documents


Sounds like your copy of MS Office has been disabled or has corruption issues. If it's a recent installation, perhaps you haven't activated it. Try clicking Microsoft Office Button; then click Word Options; click Resources; then click Activate and follow instructions.

For additional help/info on activating MS software, try this:

Excel password


You can not do this by making changes in the registry. Do a google search on "Hacking Excel 2003 Passwords" and you will find dozens of free downloads to delete the passwords on excel files. Some of the better ones are John the Ripper, PWDump, and Cain.

Recover an unfinished Excel document


If you opened this directly from the email then it would be saved back into a folder for temporary files, probably somewhere in the "Temporary Internet Files" Folder. Excel would normally remember where it had saved the file so first open Excel and look for recent files in the File menu. A search for its name (including hidden and system files option in XP) might reveal it. If that doesn't work then give details as to email program, Excel version and Windows version.
