you got to do it in Macro. the VBA instead, if you want to return it into a cell, you will need to define a Function in macro instead.

if you want to get the build info, you can try refer to: Application.Build

Function GetVersion() As String
    GetVersion = Application.Version & " " & Application.Build
End Function

Open in new window

I can't find other methods to get such info.
