We are not sure about the product as well as the version of product you have license. Also not sure about your MS Office as well as Mac OSX version.

Actually recent update in Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac (16.9 released on January 16th 2016) breaks Round-trip editing with MS Office 2016 application. Round-trip editing with MS Word 2016 works after updating to version 16.11.1 (180319). Unfortunately, Microsoft addressed this issue on Word only. This is not fixed for Excel nor PowerPoint at this time. You will find more information from the following FAQ.
