I have an Office 365 Home Premium subscription, and so I wish to use the subscription-based features of Excel for iPad.
The problem is that I use different email addresses for my iTunes and Office 365 subscriptions.
This is the series of steps I've followed:
- Install Excel for iPad
- Run Excel for iPad
- Select "Buy Office 365 Home"
- Select the tiny "I Already Have a Subscription"
- Enter my iTunes Store password, for my iTunes email address
I then get the error message:
This Apple ID doesn't have a paid Office 365 subscription."
For my two different email addresses, the domain names are the same, but the account names are specific to the two products - as an anti-spam measure, and to make it easier to detect phishing messages.
I considered changing my Apple email address to be my Microsoft one, or my Microsoft email address to be my Apple one. But in both cases, I would have a large number of login details to change, on multiple programs on multiple devices.
Are there any other alternative solutions, such as adding a second email address to either my iTunes or Microsoft accounts?
