Excel: EXEC() Function Is Compatible with System 6.0.x
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh, version 4.0
Page xliv of the version 4.0 "Microsoft Excel Function Reference" states that the EXEC() function is supported only by a Macintosh using System 7.0 or later. This information is incorrect. The EXEC() function is also compatible with Macintosh system software versions 6.0.x. However, if you are using a version 6.0.x of the Macintosh system software you can use only the first argument in this function (PROGRAM_TEXT).
Note: In order to use the EXEC() function, your Macintosh must be running under MultiFinder.
For more information about using the EXEC() function with System 6.0.x, query on the following words in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
system and 6.0.x and MultiFinder and EXEC
"Microsoft Excel Function Reference," version 4.0, pages xliv and 138
Additional query words: 4.00 multi finder
