I have a secondhand iMAC that has just been updated to OS X El Capitan version 10.11.6 (old, I know). I've attempted to install my Microsoft office from my subscription and am met with "This software requires macOS version 10.14.0 or later" which my iMAC wont support.
Is there a way that I am able to install an older compatible version of Microsoft?

Thank you!

    Once again, an accepted answer of mine has been deleted. Here's the answer:

    You can try downloading the installers on this page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/how-to-go-back-to-office-2016-for-mac-15-xx-versions-from-16-xx-e88ed6c8-6fb4-40a1-9540-529000d3d20f

    You can also download earlier installers from this link: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/officeupdates/update-history-office-for-mac
