This article describes update KB3115455 for Microsoft Excel 2013, which was released on August 9, 2016. This update also applies to Office Home and Student 2013 RT. This update has a prerequisite.

Be aware that the update in the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2013. It doesn't apply to the Office 2013 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes

Fixes the following issues:

  • Assume that you copy and paste a range of cells that has an ID property set in Excel 2013. If you use the ClearContents method to clear the content of the pasted cells, Excel 2013 may crash.

  • Assume that you insert a spreadsheet to a notebook in OneNote 2013. When you select Edit and try to insert a comment in a cell in Excel 2013, Excel 2013 may crash.

  • Excel 2013 silently blocks the loading of untrusted HTML files. This issue occurs after you install MS16-088: Description of the security update for Excel 2013: July 12, 2016 (KB3115262). After you install this new update, Excel 2013 will open HTML documents (even if they're renamed as .xls files) in protected view instead of silently failing.
