Open any Office 2016 app. From the top menu bar, choose Help > Check For Updates.


If possible, I would try to get a refund on Office 2016. There was no point purchasing that when Office 2019 replaced it over a year ago as the current, perpetual license version.

I have the same problem. I found that if I scroll down the spreadsheet, then back up, it flips it right-side up again. However some formatting is missing, and the column headings don't show for ever column. Huge problem.

I just installed the latest update (available here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/update-history-office-for-mac), and that helped me -- displayed correctly as soon as I opened the file, which it hasn't done since I updated my OS. Hope this helps!
