    Microsoft Word-Track changes error
    Hi everybody,

    I recently have problems with Microsoft word for mac when I want to track changes in my documents. The only thing it allows me to write, but if I do anything else the whole program closes down. I updated my office to the latest version, but I have the same problem.
    I'm not sure, but it might started, when I downloaded the El Capitan OsX.

    Thanks!

    We need some more information: Which version of MS Office are you running? Which Mac do you have, year and model?

    And welcome to the Mac-Forums.

    Thanks for providing information. Your copy of Office should updated, you're way behind on updates. After doing that, you should probably run a check of your hard drive.

    The current version of Office 2011 is 14.6.1 so you are way behind.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Thank you for your help! Now it works!!!

    But when I finished the update a few hours ago and I checked for a new update it said that there are now other updates available. Now I checked it again and of course there was this 14.6.1 version.

    I'm very grateful for your work and for this forum!

    Glad to hear that your copy of Word is now working. Be sure to keep up with the updates provided by Microsoft as some of them are important security patches.
