I have some issues that I hope by running MS Office Repair will be corrected.

Question: How do I run "repair" on MS Office 2013.

I have a valid HUP (Home Use Product) copy of  MS Office 2013 but I only have the download of the 32 bit and 64 bit Office, not the CDS. I presently have installed the 32 bit copy of MS Office.  

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

you need to download the offline installer as the web setup doesn’t support repair.  and run it
then click Yes for the User Account Control prompt.
When you see the Office setup, select Repair option and then click Continue button to begin repairing the Office installation. The repair process may take a while. Once done, reboot your computer.

Try looking under the Add/Remove Programs options.  The uninstall/change option should enable a repair feature.

You can run a Repair from Control Panel as noted above. I have done it. Click on Office, choose Change, Repair and do a FULL repair. They offer quick and full - do a FULL repair.
