Jun 04, 2019 Overview of the Volume License (VL) Serializer. 6/4/2019; 2 minutes to read; In this article. Applies to: Office 2019 for Mac, Office 2016 for Mac The Volume Serializer (VL) is used to activate Office 2019 for Mac or Office 2016 for Mac as a volume licensed version. Finding out that Office 2019 for Mac was just a straight update to Office 2016 going from 16.16 to 16.17, I pushed out the Office 2019 Volume License Serializer.
If you bought Office 2016 for the Mac by way of volume licensing – for example, if you’re a non-profit and got it through TechSoup – you may have a hell of a time figuring out how to actually GET it. Above and beyond the usual fandango of getting an open license agreement and creating a Windows Live account for the same email address the OLSA is attached to and creating a VLSC account on that Windows Live account and taking ownership of the OLSA… things get deeply weird when you try to download it.
There’s your Microsoft Office for Mac 2016 Standard in the Downloads section, and it has the usual glowing text about how awesome it will be to have Office 2016 for your Mac in the Description tab… but when you click Download, all of a sudden you’re faces with a download for “Office Online Server”, which has absolutely nothing to do with Office 2016 for Mac.
I went around and around trying to figure out what was going on with this, to no avail. I eventually figured out – due to scads of people posting about OTHER problems with the Mac installer, which I fervently hope I won’t encounter once I actually get the chance to install this thing – that the ISO I should be seeing was about 1.6GB in size. The ISO for “Office Online Server 64 Bit English” is a “svelte” 599MB, so that’s not it.

Qualified Clients 79% of consultants waste valuable time speaking to potential clients that are not qualified or just not “right” for their consulting services. The Client Automation Machine gives you an automated stream of highly-qualified clients that have already “raised their hand” telling you they want your services. Get wp affiliate machine blackhat.
Eventually, just before giving up and trying to file a bug report with Microsoft about mislabeled downloads on the VLSC, I looked hard at the “32/64 bit” Operating System Type. I mean, I’d looked at it ten times already and moved on, because, sure, OS X should be taking a multi-arch installer, why not? But when I actually clicked the drop down…
Yyyyyyeah. Hope this helps somebody else, that was a frustrating half hour or so.

Unfortunately slicers are not available in Excel 2011 for Mac, but there is a workaround. The following link is a list of known issues for 2011, and slicers is the first one on the list.Since the issue is listed first, maybe this means the next Excel for Mac version will contain slicers.Slicers are available in the Excel Web App. So you could upload your file to SkyDrive (soon to be called OneDrive) or SharePoint, and share the link with your Mac users.
