I installed this on my 2016 MBP in 2014 but now I'm using macOS Monterrey 12.0.1 and it seems I can't use it and must now go to the App Store and subscribe to MS Office monthly or annually.

Before I toss my CD for MS Office 2011 and subscribe to MS Office, is there any workaround to still use it?

There is no workaround. Its limited on what mac os it will work with. It does have some $ value to people who use older machines. Sells for about $50 on ebay. Could pay for some of that office 365 subscription if the effort is worth it to you..

You don’t have to get a subscription, you can get a pay one time version of Office 2021on Amazon for $124 US. Beware there are some products that are a little less expensive, Office Suite for one, but they’re not a Microsoft product. If you read close it says Office compatible. Also there are some that are PC only so be careful with that.

I'm running Monterey as well and I very much would like to use Office...but I refuse to subscribe..so I'm stuck with pages and exporting to office when I need to share things. Such a pain

Like I replied above you don’t have to subscribe, if you look around you can get a standalone copy of office 2021 home and student.

You could also try one of the open source alternatives to Office. I've used Libre Office recently, and it worked very nicely with Excel files. I'm planning to use that instead of Microsoft Office for future use.
