Microsoft automatic updates not updating

While we recommend keeping automatic updates turned on for Microsoft Office, those of you who prefer to disable updates for any reason can follow the given below directions to disable updates. Step 4: Uncheck the option labelled Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows. Step 1: Type Windows Update in Start menu or Start screen search box, and press Enter key to open Windows Update window.

As said before, you don’t need to turn off Windows Updates in order to stop Office from receiving updates. That is, those of you installed Office 2016/2013 as part of Office 365 subscription as well as users who installed a one-time purchase of Office 2016/2013 (purchased via retail store or online) can use this method to turn off Office updates without disabling Windows Updates. Step 2: On the left-pane, click Change settings link.

Copy the contents of the spreadsheet to a new one, and deleted the old one (it wasn't a particularly important spreadsheet, thankfully), and everything was fine.

I can only assume that somehow the file had become corrupted.

I also have had this problem with a very large spreadsheet that just stopped updating itself over the weekend, but having checked the above solutions, setting were already set to automatic, and sheet is too big to rebuild, so I was at a loss.

My solution was to find an old version of the same excel spreadsheet which was not having thses issuesbefore I archived it, which is of similar size and complexity to the current version.

Turning off updates is only option if you don’t want Office 2013 from automatically updated to Office 2016 (installed as part of Office 365 subscription).

Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead?What I found to be the problem was the formula and the fact that I surrounded numbers with quotes.That probably turned the cell into a text format cell, even though technically the cell was still a number and listed as one under the formats.In Settings I had to change Automatic Update command to Full Calculate and then back again.Once the original setting had been restored, the add-in ran as normal.
