How can we improve Excel for Mac?

Excel for Mac 2016 does not open xlsm files from Excel for Windows !

Excel for Mac version 16.15 does not open xlsm files from Excel for Windows !

Excel has a very serious error:
Do not open the xlsm files maked with Excel for Windows, please correct it... !!!

I have tried it with all my previous excel macros files and in all it sends me a message of ERROR, when accepting that, Excel proceeds to repair it deletes all the macros that you have programmed in VBA !!!

What kind of error is that ???


The exact message is the following:

We have found a problem with 'book.xlsm' content. Do you want us to try to recover as much content as possible? If you trust the origin of this book, click Yes.

When I answering YES, all the VBA code is deleted and lost !!!
Very careful Danger of losing your VBA macros !!! 

Microsoft: ¡ please correct this error !

    Every single time I try to perform a 'sort' action, Excel crashes. I begin to see this happen after I updated the software to Mojave..
