    Hi there
    you can get cheap working Ms Office Pro 2019 via amazon -- apparently users of these say keys are valid and not blocked by Microsoft -- it's worth a try -- if these were really being pirated large scale (amazon sells a lot of these) I suspect both amazon and microsoft would have raised concerns and blocked these products from being activated and working.

    If you want "the real thing" it's worth a small punt - prices are very cheap -- I don't suspect these are pirate versions and the iso you get (it's in img format) is identical to the Ms sku's so I would take the plunge - others might disagree but until the provenance of these cheap editions can definitely be proved to be Pirated I'd go for it.

    The only time I've read (and only 2 cases I've seen) where the key didn't work the seller got a new key within minutes and sent to the purchases - the key did work.

    On these sorts of deals I would tend to apply a "Risk to Reward " ratio algorithm -- personally a full 100% genuine Office 2019 Pro working suite for around 35 USD -- I wouldn't complain.

    Cheers

    Hi there

    If you have EXCEL there's all sorts of business templates for things like invoicing etc etc. I'm not saying previous posters suggestion is no good - it's probably totally fine but if you have EXCEL anyway why not use it - there's so many things its capable of - the average user probably is only aware of about 1% of EXCEL's capabilities -- it can also pie chart / bar chart etc and a whole slew of other stuff, give you "What if" type of analysis, and has a huge amount of built in statistical, mathematical and financial formulae so calculating breakdown of compound interest, credit card balance, mortgages , capital equipment depreciation etc etc is an absolute doddle .

    I think in most jurisdictions these days the Tax authorities will accept EXCEL sheets too if they are "data compliant" with the relevant tax legislation.

    Unfortunately,
    I don't trust these small developers. I don't know if they will steal my information

    Amazon sells pirated product???? Did you mean the third party sellers? Is it sold from and shipped by Amazon?

    I am thinking about OfficeSuite Free, what do you think?

    It's sold by Amazon Digital Services, Inc.

    Does it mean that it's a safe software?

    Is it fully compatible with Microsoft Office and will not alter the format and style ?

    I'd like to know, some version of Office include Outlook but some does not. What is the use of Outlook in Office? Isn't Outlook an apps that comes with Windows to send email?

    Hi,
    Yes but that is outlook.com not office email suite which is a program not a traditional app.

    You really do not need office outlook.
