I've been using Excel 2000 almost exclusively since 2000 or whenever it
first appeared. I've occasionally had to use a more "modern" version of
Excel and haven't liked it - I can't adjust to that ribbon.

VBA with Excel 2000 seems to do everything I need, and I am not aware of
any new feature in VBA in the more recent Excel versions from which I
could benefit. Can anyone provide a good reason for upgrading?

Only if you want to open spreadsheets in the .xlsx format.

I only upgraded to 2007 because my ex-sister-in-law gave me her old copy,
when she upgraded to... uh... whatever the next version was. I have 365 now
for various reasons.

Who are you to deny her reality in favor of your own?
