    @gnat Searching that other question for "excel" yields no results at all. – James Apr 6 '15 at 21:28

    @endolith Please vote for reopen underneath the original question. – snth Apr 11 '16 at 6:49

Super User is the most appropriate (see help) for Excel questions, both on using the app but also on installing. That applies to the other MS Office applications too

In addition, specifically for VBA questions you could also consider Stack Overflow (see help), although those are also acceptable on Super User too.

    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

    @MichaelFreidgeim Too bad. I think “spreadsheets” is a very worthy potential Stack Exchange. Otherwise you have to look among SU, SO, Web Applications, Ask Different... – whiskeychief Apr 18 '19 at 11:07
