I am creating a spreadsheet in Excel Mobile App for Android and I can’t find the Custom category under the Format Cells menu. All the other category options are there, but Custom is not. I want to include start time and end time columns and have a final
column calculate and display the elapsed time as h:mm. The h:mm selection is under the Custom category in the PC program, but not in the Mobile App. Currently it just displays the result as a time, AM or PM instead of just elapsed time in h:mm. Is the Custom
category somewhere else or is there a way to manually input it? Read More
I am having an issue with OneNote iPhone and iPad not syncing due to account credentials being dropped. Many times each day I am being asked to sign back in to my account on both the iPhone and iPad- basically unusable. I have just migrated from Evernote,
and if I cannot get this issue resolved quickly, I will need to switch back.

I am attempting to simply close a series of open notebooks in my OneNote APP on my iPad. There is no clear way to do so, searching forums and help hasn’t been too productive.
Is it possible that there is no way to close notebooks that are not in use? I can’t imagine that is the case – after a while the APP would just be inundated with open notebooks. Especially if one creates a new notebook on a timed basis (e.g., weekly or
Any insight is appreciated!
I originally set up my office account with Yahoo as default saving location for contacts saved via Office Lens business card reader.
However, I would like the contacts info to now be saved to my Gmail account instead.
Problem is, even though I have signed out of my Yahoo account and signed into the Gmail (Office Lens account settings), the default saving location of the contacts still remains at Yahoo when I save the contacts file generated by Office Lens.
(FYI, I have also logged out from Yahoo and signed into my Gmail account for Onedrive and all other mobile office apps).
I have asked the Microsoft help desk but they said this is a Yahoo / Gmail issue that has nothing to do with them.
I am having trouble with the automatic numbering in the Word App on Ipad.

I am running Android ver. 16.0.7341.1795 on a Galaxy S7 Edge. Suddenly all of the sections on my desktop OneNote that contain tables which were converted to Excel spreadsheets using the OneNote facility for doing so, won’t sync to my Android phone. My Nexus
7 (2013) tablet which is still on OneNote version 15.1.6507.4427 can sync these sections without trouble.
I just downloaded the OneNote app to my iphone 5. I already have an account started on my work computer and want to sync the two. When i try to create a new notebook on the app it asks me to sign in. I sign in using my account info but nothibg happens. I
click “create a notebook” again and it asks me to sign in again. I cant create or sync anything with the app. Can anyone please help me resolve this issue? Thanks

I am very confused.
In the past when I tried to enter Outlook calendar entries using the Outlook app on my android phone offline (not connected to Wifi or data) the entries would disappear. So I figure the Outlook android app is not actually functional for calendar purposes
on my android phone . Maybe ok to view entries but not create entries.
Here is says that Sunrise is being acquired so at that point I downloaded Sunrise thinking it would be very compatible for syncing my outlook.com calendar. And in fact it did work very well with my outlook.com calendar.
Then I get notification that Sunrise is going to be disabled on Aug 31 but no information about any replacement.
Well it appears that Sunrise app is still working after Aug 31 syncing my outlook.com calendar on my Android phone but maybe I have not tested it thoroughly.
Can anybody share their advice about how they manage their outlook.com calendar on their android phone – both on and offline?

I want to know how to sum value of one cell without using Macro. Macro & VBA can not be used on Android devices.
Actually I am trying to maintain a excel sheet to manage and calculate my expenses.
For example as per above pic, I have few entries in B3 like Auto 50, Lunch 200, Dinne (sorry for spelling mistake) 150 so I want to add sum of 50+200+150 in C3. So C3 should show 400. Same for C4 where it should result as 800.
It should also calculate negative numbers. Like if cell have 50 & -20 so result should show 30.
It is possible to have any such formula without Macro so I can use that file on my Android phone as well?
I have a Nokia 930 running Windows 10 Mobile. I have added my hotmail account to my phone and since Sept 1 it has stopped syncing my emails. If I access my account through a computer and delete, move, flag or archive emails directly, then access my account

Outlook on Android is great but for the life of me, I cannot understand why when I send an email, the recipient gets it from *** Email address is removed for privacy *** instead of my name, as it does on every other mail client (including on Outlook.com).
I’m using the latest version on the Google Play Store, on a fully patched version of Marshmallow. Any ideas?
I am using onenote 2016 with the class notebook add in to distribute coursework to my students. All of my students are on ipads since my HS has a 1:1ipad program. I prefer to use onenote for grading easier with my sp4, and the powerschool integration.
Nevertheless, I am testing out the workflows before the school year starts this tuesday, and I am running into some serious issues.
All of my files are in .pdf for course content. I am creating a page in onenote and inserting the assignment I want the students to do as a pdf printout. I put the title of the worksheet as the page title, and I put in a text box below the page title and
above the pdf printout stating to do the homework. I found if I don’t put that box, then the create assignment function in class notebook throws an error.
My main issue is the alignment of the annotations on the page. Once the assignment goes to the students and they mark it up, when I go into there name and section and page for the assignment, all of their work is misaligned. Shifted upward and smaller
it seems. See below for the ipad markup…then what I see when I look at the page on my surface.
Also, If I markup the same page to grade it or comment on it with onenote 2016 and then view it on the ipad under the students account, the alignment is off!!! So my student would think my feedback is basically gibberish.
I really need help on this and hope there is an easy solution. Between the slow syncs and this….I am ready to dump onenote altogether and go another route.
Thank you all.
How can I change the behavior of the Enter key in Excel for Android?
I’m doing a lot of entries into spreadsheets using a numeric keypad attached to an Android tablet. I need to enter the data in rows, so I’d like to be able to specify the default setting for the app to “move right” instead of “move down” when pressing Enter.
I can’t find anything that looks like Options in Excel for Android. Am I just missing it?
I’m pretty sure that if I replace my keypad with one that has a Tab key, I should be able to move right after entering data, but I’d still like to learn how to customize Excel on my tablet.
Thanks in advance!

I’d like to sync my Google calendar with Outlook on my device, a Samsung Galaxy S7 running Android 6.0.1. I’m running Outlook 2.1.65 (146) mainline.
In Outlook for Android Phone (v2.1.65 (146) mainline), I select the Gear icon, then Add Account.
I enter the username and password for my Google account. On the “Outlook would like to page”, I choose the Allow button.
The app displays “Authenticating with Google…”, the reports the error:
“Login Error: The connection to your mail server timed out. Please check your mail settings.”
I’ve tried this periodically over a few days, with the same results. Any recommendations?

Our company has moved from the IPhone 6 to Microsoft Lumia 950 with Windows 10. With Onenote on the IPhone we could simply share a copy of a Onenote page with our colleagues simply by sharing a a pdf copy via email.
We have tried to do this with the Windows 10 Onenote and at this point in time we cannot achieve this. The closest we have found is the “Share a copy function” which not everyone can see and then when those who have it use it it is very slow and only works
for onenote pages without images.
I tried it with an image yesterday and my phone went from 30% battery to 0% in a very short amount of time.
Please can you help.
I have the mobile version of word (Office 365) on my new iPad pro and I would like to be able to edit some documents from there however I need the ability to protect and unprotect the document in order to edit the fillable form I’ve created in the docs
AND the text that isn’t a part of the fillable form areas. So pretty much I need to be able to lock and unlock the fillable form. I can do this just fine on my Mac and PC laptops but I’m hoping this is possible on my iPad as well. If this isn’t possible using
the straight word app, any suggestions on alternate apps that will allow me to do this on my iPad that works with word documents? Thanks in advance! Read More
In Landscape mode, Outlook opens a reading pane 1/2 the size of the
Smartphone screen; the left 1/2 is the Inbox. There are no settings on the Smartphone version to turn this option off. Now this seems to change with some updates to Windows as well. Any suggestions on
getting full-screen landscape reading pane?
Since the last update my OneNote App crashes immediately after startup on my iPad pro. App version is 7.8 (16 aug 2016) and iOS version is 9.3.5.
The app also crashed with iOS 9.3.4.
How can I fix this?

I installed Excel through the Play Store. When presented with a login, I use my school account as it has 365 subscription access and it will switch to a screen saying ‘Connecting’. However it will end up with ‘Can’t Complete Task: Office encountered a problem’
I initially skipped this step and created a new file. I was forced to restart as my tablet froze. The file was autosaved but I was unable to edit the file as I need an account with a 365 subscription.
The odd thing is, I can sign into my Hotmail account. However this doesn’t help as that account doesn’t have 365 subscription access. I have tried to activating the subscription with my school account, however that led to the error I explained earlier.
I have outlook app on both side, my android phone and windows 10, the problem is the email sent from my desktop outlook can be syncing to my android phone no any problem, but the emails sent from my android phone outlook app cannot be syncing to my desktop

I already check all options, on the server I checked box “leave a copy on the server” and on the phone app, I double check all setting are correct, actually, on the mobile app there are not too much setting options you can do,
my outlook version is the 2016 outlook, I installed from my 365 account.
I am using gmail, outlook.com, company email, but none of them can be syncing to my phone!!!
I just want the emails I sent from my android outlook app, I also can see on my computer, otherwise that is a big problem for me.!!!
anyone can help?
I’ve developed Excel add-in which exports text files (CSV data files, SVG files). As far as I know, this feature is not available for the add-in on iOS. Still I’d like to make the add-in available on iOS. Would it be acceptable to hide the export buttons
on the iOS version? Or what are the options?

In my iPad mini… All of a sudden I can’t edit notes, can’t create new pages, (button is greyed out).
I already tried signing out and in again. Nothing. Then I deleted the app and downloaded it again from the App Store, issue persists.
Not sure if this is a read-only issue. the iOS preferences are very limited and there isn’t anything that mentions read-only in the iOS preferences. So I’m actually clueless and have tried everything at my disposal to solve the issue.
Please do not copy paste generic answers. I am a well versed onenote user and have relied on it for school since two years ago. I NEED it to work again, ASAP.
For the past few weeks I have been having extra words added after I swipe a word while using ms word on my Samsung. It is usually the same one word that is added until I delete the word from the dictionary. Unfortunately, a different is then added. I uninstalled
the app and reinstalled but the problem persists. Is anyone else experiencing this? Read More

Hi, 14905.1000, can’t use color to fill shapes in high contrast dark mode on ..
I’d bet a bill gates billion there will be no miraculous “later” when suddenly the file will open. I just created it using the file explorer and naming it with the docx ext that Word always uses and this is what I get attempting to open it. It’s this supposed
to mean something useful or is it just a misleading filler message in a circumstance the app is completely clueless but hasnt been programmed with the integrity to admit it? Read More

My wife has a Motorola phone with the android operating system and her version of one note has far more options than mine does ? Why is that ? She can draw, has colors, etc. This seems very odd to me.
MS Office 365 . . WORD . . on my iPad has a yellow exclamation point in yellow triangle next to recent files. Why? When I touch the yellow triangle, the following message shows up.
“Your server account is out of space. Please make some space and try syncing again.”
i have upgraded my 365 account to increase my storage capacity. Now what can I do?
