My 2016 MS Office Pro Excel has been great for a year. Now when every couple weeks it prompts me with an issue and asks to repair. I click on repair and then its good for a couple of weeks but it seems to pop up again.

Is it the same error message each time?
What is the error message?
64/32 bit and what version of Windows?
It's Win 10 64 bit. I'll have to get a screen shot of the pop up error box. I think it says, Repair, Close, Report. Something like that.

There are a couple of updates in there but I don't think they are related. I am updateing now. One was Qualcom and the other was for the display.

also make sure you have all the latest Office updates.

and any chance you are running some sort of routine maintenance, and then after that, Excel shows the error?
say like CCleaner or similar.

ages ago, under Office 2007, if I ran CCleaner, that next time I used Word, I would have to repair install Office.

is it just Excel, or do all Office programs show the same error?

It's just Excel as far as I have seen. I don't recall running any maintenance programs when this occurred.
