I had both these problems. I am using Office Insider – Fast track for Office Pro Plus. I tried all kinds of things but nothing worked. Full repair, complete uninstall and reinstall, reapply Windows patches, reinstalled .net framework, escalated to MS. No use.
The solution was very simple. I went to Excel – Customize Quick Access Toolbar. At the bottom right corner I chose – Reset – Reset All Customizations. That’s it. Both problems solved.
I myself do not know why it worked. But it did. If you have the same issues, try this one.
When you type something in a cell after an = sign in Excel, a list of functions is shown. Functions have an icon next to them. For some functions, the icon shows a Yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. That is the Excel Function Warning I am talking about.
No warning Warning
What exactly is the Excel Function Warning?
It basically means: “Do not use this function. We have a new and more accurate function available now”. If you use only newer versions of Excel, you should use the newer functions.
Here is an example. The older STDEV function now has two separate functions STDEV.S and STDEV.P – S means sample and P means population. The mathematical formula used behind the scenes by these functions is different. As mathematics advances further, the logic used also undergoes improvement. The newer functions utilize the latest algorithms to increase accuracy of your results.
- Notice if any of the your formulas have one or more Excel Function Warning icon.
- Go to the help file of that function.
- The newer, better or more appropriate function will be listed there.
- Learn the new function(s). Understand what has changed and why.
- Change these across your files to ensure more accurate results.
- Use the new function when you create new workbooks.
I see lot of movies. I am the First-Day-First-Show guy. Usually, I post the Movie Rating on my personal FB page. See some examples below. But recently I posted a Movie Rating Chart. Here is how you do it.

Hello. Here is the Vietnam session video – 1.5 hours. Most of the narration in the video is in Vietnamese language. If you understand the language, you will love the video. Thanks to Minh Nguyen, the Vietnamese narration is amazing… that is what attendees told me after the session! Thanks to Softline for arranging this event.
