Applies to: Office Home and Business 2016Office Home and Business 2016Office Home and Student 2016

This article describes update KB3115270 for Microsoft Office 2016, which was released on August 2, 2016. This update has a prerequisite.

Be aware that the update on the Microsoft Download Center applies to the Microsoft Installer (.msi)-based edition of Office 2016. It doesn't apply to the Office 2016 Click-to-Run editions, such as Microsoft Office 365 Home. (How to determine?)

Improvements and fixes

This update includes the following fixes and improvements for the Power Pivot add-in in Excel 2016: 
  • Fixes a race condition that occurs when you upgrade large workbooks.
  • Fixes an exception for the Measures function that occurs when you enter a formula and press ALT + H to check the formula. This issue occurs because the formula is only committed as soon as the focus leaves the formula editor. 
  • Decimal numbers appear as integers when you have locale settings in which a comma is the decimal separator. Therefore, some numbers are 100 times larger than the actual values.
