Which Stack Exchange is the best site to ask questions about Microsoft Excel (as well as potentially other Microsoft Office and VBA questions)?

There's many different kinds of questions that involve Excel. For the formula part this is a duplicate of Which site do Excel (or other spreadsheet) formulas belong on? – Arjan May 12 '11 at 7:43
@gnat Searching that other question for "excel" yields no results at all. – James Apr 6 at 21:28

Personally, I would say that questions about using MS Office and possible installation issues should be asked on Super User.

Questions specific to VBA should be asked on Stack Overflow.

I'd just add that Excel specific VBA questions are also accepted on Super User. – ChrisF May 12 '11 at 7:55
Doesn't MS Office seem like a natural fit for its own site? Large user base around related products... – TJB May 17 '12 at 18:22
I disagree; Most of my questions about excel comes down to how to write formulas for scenarios that are hard to search for on google. If i had a place like stack overflow for excel nerds, it would be a godsend. – Kristian Feb 19 '13 at 19:46
Anyone interested in a stack exchange site specifically for spreadsheets, should check out the proposed spreadsheets site in Area 51: area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/69131/spreadsheets – bryanbraun Nov 27 '14 at 23:11

If you want a place to ask all of your Microsoft questions, then you can support this proposal.

a high number of "excel" questions are not M$-specific but about spreadsheets in general. I strongly disagree with filing them under microsoft rather then under spreadsheets – törzsmókus Nov 3 at 10:48
@torzsmokus I totally agree with you. But the question is: where should I ask Microsoft Excel questions, not spreadsheet questions. I would assume that the question is referring to not only spreadsheet questions, but also GUI questions or something like that. – ʇolɐǝz ǝɥʇ qoq Nov 6 at 2:50
