Is it also possible to activate the important e-mail plug-in on a Remote Desktop Services farm?
Or is it only supported on desktop OS?

Thanks, best regards,

What is the difference between your 2016, 2018, and 2019 releases? I did not see a chart about differences and upgrade costs.

I like your Excel blog articles too!

Hello Samuel,

Thank you for your feedback.

Sorry, we do not have a comparison chart showing the differences between the major versions of our software. Major upgrades generally come out when Microsoft releases an Office version or an update that requires great efforts from our team to support it or when some significant changes are made to the add-in. We also announce about major upgrades and critical updates on our blog:

All minor updates and major upgrades are free during 2 years after the purchase. After that, you can buy the next major version at half of the regular price. You can send your current license key for our add-in to and we'll check if you are eligible for a free upgrade.

Feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions or need further assistance.

I was using AbleBits as recently as yesterday, but it has disappeared from my toolbar and I cannot get it to reappear. Excel Version 1902 (Office Suite 365ProPlus). AbleBits Ultimate Suite, purchased 12/2019.

It does appear in the Options -> Add ins in the Active list.

Please advise what additional steps I can take to have it appear in my toolbar. Thank you.

IS Ablebits 2018.4.104.7510 add-in compatible for office 365? Are there remediation steps

Hello Jason,

Version 2018.4.104.7510 is quite an old one and may not work with the latest Office updates, especially with Office 2019 and Office 365. Besides, we provide support only for the latest version of the add-in since there might be some bugs and technical issues in the previous versions that have already been fixed in the new one (version 2020).

If you purchased a license for our product previously, you can send us your license key to and we'll check what version of the add-in it is compatible with. Thank you.

I am importing date columns into a sqlite database program via a plugin that works with the program that allows .csv importation. I noticed today that every date I import is one date LATER than the date imported.

The column in the database is formatted as being a date with dd MMM yyyy style the hour, minutes and seconds are in the column but they are witheld from being seen. I set the column in the list to be imported as a date formatted custom dd MMM yyyy.

My question is this,

Since it seems that nothing I can do will allow that list to import the days accurately, and I know that it will show them as being one date later, is there a function in the Ablebits Excel Suite that will allow me to simply format the date column to show them as one day later so that the imported list will end up being the true date in the field?

Sorry for such a long set up, but the extra information may lead to answering the question in a fundamental way rather than just asking if the plugins will automatically format date columns by one day. I don't know how to use Excel formatting beyond the very basics.

HI, I have been using the trial version of the Merge Tables Wizard for Excel for Mac. It has been working well. I now want to buy it so that I can merge tables wth more than 50 rows. I have a couple of questions:
1. I assume this product is included in the Ultimate Suite even though your product information says the Ultimate suite is for a Windows platform?
2. I have an Microsoft 365 subscription on a Macbook Pro. This is the setup where the trial version of the Merge Tables Wizard for Excel for Mac worked. I want to confirm that the Merge Tables Wizard included in the Ultimate Suite will work with Microsoft 365 Excel (for Mac).
3. Will all of the Excel add-ins in the Ultimate suite work in Microsoft 365 Excel (for Mac)?

Hello Bill,

Thank you for your comment. You see, we used to have Merge Tables Wizard for Mac, but we no longer sell and support it. This feature is available as a part of our Ultimate Suite for Microsoft Excel that works for Windows only.

However, you can have a look at Merge Sheets add-on for Google Sheets that has similar functionality and can be run in a browser on your Mac. The add-on is installed and purchased directly through G Suite Marketplace, feel free to test it out for 30 days for free to see if it suits your needs.

When using the Add Text feature, what condition(s) would be preventing me from typing text into the field? I'm unable to add the text that I would like to append or prepend to the selected range.

I have a user with Ablebits add-in installed on Excel 365 Pro Plus. We are at version 1902, 64-bit architecture. The add-in is loading, but the icons are all blank in the ribbon, like it's not compatible. Is there something that we can do to help this user?


hello, I installed the additional Phrase Template component on the desktop version of Outlook 365 with Win10 but my models are not saved. I create a new model, I try it, but at the next mail I get only your default models. I tried to delete them all but then reappear. My collaborators, who use the same software and the same operating system do not encounter the problem; everything works correctly. What can it depend on? Thanks for an answer.

hi there

i've installed ablebits on a new win10-device with outlook, can see the addin in outlook, manage the templates, but when i open a new mail, there are no template phrases to choose from, as i know it from other installations.

is it maybe hidden and has to be activated oder is this maybe a bug?

thanks in advance for your help

Hi Dorian,

Our support team specialist has just replied to you via email. Please check your Inbox.

Hi Mary,
I have the same problem since using Outlook 1904 in Win 10. Template phrases can be used only online not in the desktop-app of Outlook.
