Determining Your Version of Excel in Excel

There are a few different ways that you can determine which version of Excel you have. One way is to look at the "About Microsoft Excel" dialog box. To do this, open Excel and then click on the "File" menu. Then, click on the "Help" option near the bottom of the menu. This will open the "About Microsoft Excel" dialog box. Your version number will be listed here.

Another way to determine your version of Excel is to look at the file properties for any Excel file. To do this, open any Excel file and then click on the "File" menu. Then, click on the "Properties" option near the bottom of the menu. This will open the "Properties" dialog box. Your version number will be listed under the "General" tab.

If you want to get really technical, you can also determine your version of Excel by looking at the registry keys. To do this, open the Registry Editor (press Windows+R, type regedit, and press Enter) and then navigate to the following key:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\<version>\Excel]

The <version> placeholder should be replaced with your actual version number (for example, 15.0 for Office 2013). The version number will be listed under the "ProductVersion" value.
