      Description

      Description

      Excel on Mac requires 64-bit Office. We currently document the command to figure out which bitness (64-bit or 32-bit) is installed but the output when you have 32-bit installed is not straight forward.

      Scope of changes (files that need work and how much)

      We need to highlight the specific output from this command:

      file -N /Applications/Microsoft\ Excel.app/Contents/MacOS/Microsoft\ Excel
      

      Add a results table similar to:

      Return value Meaning
      Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64 64-bit binary
      Mach-O executable i386 32-bit binary
      Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64
      Mach-O executable i386
      FAT binary (compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit processes)
