Will Cascade run on my Computer?
The recommended platform for Cascade is Microsoft Excel.
Cascade runs on Microsoft Excel for Windows or Excel for Mac. It uses several advanced features within Excel to bring a seamless and visual package. Cascade works best with Microsoft 365 or Office 2016, 2019.
Earlier versions of MS Office are no longer fully supported by Microsoft.
Cascade uses a wide variety of functions within its macros to automate its processes. Hence requiring a full version of Excel. Numbers, Google Sheets, OfficeLive and LibreOffice do not support the features necessary. Several of the graphical elements distort and a few of the critical functions are not available. We do not recommend using Cascade on these platforms.
Excel Online does not support macros so Cascade does not function properly with Excel Online.
Which version of Office should I get?
When purchasing Excel, search for ‘MS Office’ and there are usually some good deals around. The two different options for MS Office are;
- Office 2019 – A one time fee where you stay on 2019 until you choose to purchase the next version.
- Microsoft 365 – An annual subscription where you are kept up to date with the latest version of Office.
