Word Does Not Work After Catalina update


I have updated the Mac software with the Catalina software. After doing so, the microsoft word app said that it cannot open because it is the 32 bit version and directed me to upload the new 64 bit version. So I uploaded the 64 bit version and now Microsoft is telling me that I can only view documents and not edit them. 

Can you please help me?

All the best, 



The disk utility cleaned the problem right up. 

Thank you for asking.

And yes, Catalina shifted a lot of things around that needed to be re-downloaded. 

All the best,
