Re-validation - MS Office Upgrade




What type of validation/revalidation is required when you upgrade your company's MS Office version, say 2010 to 2013?
Do we have re-validate all the spreadsheets with new version?

Probably yes. This is a major upgrade of office with new bells and whistles.
Rationale to skip validation would be that what has changed between 2013 and 2010 version doesn't affect you documents, teemplates and forms. Easy if you only do simple formulas in excel, hardly feasible if you have macros.
A middle solution would be to revalidate items impacted by changes.
Anyway, the hardest thing remains to know exactly what has changed. MS doesn't document it thoroughly.

Btw, if anybody knows were to find this info on MS website, he's going to make my day.
