Microsoft Office 2011 wont work on macOS Catalina

After talking to microsoft support, I was told that microsoft let us know when they fix the issue. Not sure if I believe this, but we shall see.

Any thoughts?

- Cant back up to older mac version, because havent backed up 

My Mac has been telling me this for months. It has something to do with 24-bit architecture or some such. I bought a used laptop that I will NOT upgrade so that I can continue using Office 2011. The new version removes the publishing layout so for more money, Microsoft wants me to use something less functional. PC users get Publisher, Macs get nothing.
