How to open the VBA environment

You can access the VBA environment in Excel 2016 by opening the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

First, be sure that the Developer tab is visible in the toolbar in Excel.

The Developer tab is the toolbar that has the buttons to open the VBA editor and create Form/ActiveX Controls like buttons, checkboxes, etc.

To display the Developer tab, click on File in the menu bar and select Options from the drop down menu.

When the Excel Options window appears, click on the Customize Ribbon option on the left. Click on the Developer checkbox under the list of Main Tabs on the right. Then click on the OK button.

Select the Developer tab from the toolbar at the top of the screen. Then click on the Visual Basic option in the Code group.

Now the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications editor should appear and you can view your VBA code.

1.Excel for MAC does not support PowerPivot. Consequently, any pivot table having source data based on the Excel Data Model will be unfilterable if the spreadsheet is opened by a MAC user.


2. So will be any pivot table, that was created via the 'Import from Microsoft Access Database' option as Excel for MAC does not support OLEDB connections, either.

It does work for ODBC connections, though, so this may be your workaround...

3. Excel for MAC does not support Pivot Charts. As a result, they will no longer be interactive and change simultaneously with their source Pivot Table but remain static screenshot-like graphs

4.Pivot table value filters on Excel for Mac can only be applied to the left-most value field. There's no option to apply a value filter that has been placed in second or further position in the pivot table.

5. Field Calculation Types are limited on Mac. % of Parent Row Total and % of Parent Column Total are not available

6. If you're accustomed to using workbook and worksheet events for triggering your VBA routines, you're in for a disappointment - none of these will execute on MAC.
