Should I Buy Office 2019 or Subscribe to Office 365?
July 06, 2021 - by Bill Jelen
Problem: The Office 365 website is super-confusing. I don’t want to buy the wrong version.
Strategy: Office 365 is the only way to get you the full version of Excel. The $99 a year plan allows you to install Excel on six computers including a Mac. You might have to use Surveys instead of Forms and will be sent to the consumer OneDrive instead of OneDrive for Business. But it will get you all of the Excel that you need.
On the other hand, if you buy Office 2019, you will be missing many features: Geography & Stock data types, Artificial Intelligence with Ideas, Dynamic Arrays such as SORT, FILTER, UNIQUE and SEQUENCE. .
