I use Word and Excel from Office 2011 (all updates loaded as they come) on my iMac. I upgraded to 10.10 last week and that was the end of Word & Excel. They no longer work. So after many goes to get them started I deleted Office 2011 from Applications with a view to a re-instal from the original disc. Despite pleading my iMac, with whom I thought I had good relations it refused to even see the disc and spat it out. So that is the end of Word and Excel for the time being. I am surprised Apple would issue an update of OS if this situation was even a possibility without warning us punters. After all huge numbers must use Office on their Mac's. I read all the so called fixes but non-techies like me glaze over at the prospect. My iMac is 2009 era with a 2.66 GHz processor (whatever that is) and 4 GB SDRAM so it is pretty much up to date and I load all the updates as the come. Luckily I also have a Macbook Air that has not been upgraded and can still use my Office software on that until this problem gets resolved.
