Applications :: Opening Password Protected Excel Files In Numbers 08

Is there a way to do this ? When I try to open any file that is password protected, I get an error that the file 'in an incompatible format' (if memory serves, I'm away from my Mac right now). I can open it fine in NeoOffice, but it never works in Number '08. I'd consider going to iWork '09 if the problem has been addressed there.

Numbers 09 :: Opening Excel Files With Pop Up Menus
I have a few Excel 2003 spread sheets that contain pop-up menus inside various cells. When I open the Excel files using iWork09 my pop-up menus are gone and I get a waring saying the cell pop-up menus are no longer available.

Applications :: Opening A Numbers File In Excel Won't Work With Extension Of .xls
I have some .numbers files that I need a friend to look at on her pc with Excel 2003 SP3, but it's not working for her. I have changed the extension to .xls but it's no good, as when she tries to open them they are all gobbledegook.

Here's a snapshot of the various files I have, but notice how the icons for each is different, or rather that there are two distinct designs? Some of them DO open in Excel, but some do not.

Applications :: Does Pages Save Secure Password Protected Files
In dreaded Microsoft word I use "Save As", then click "Options" and there is the option to save my file with a password so that my kids can't get in and muck up my business writing.

I can't see "Options" under "Save as" but I'm just trialling iWorks (full iWorks disc arrives next week).

Applications :: How To Convert Numbers Into Excel Files
I have these Numbers files but need to send them to someone who is using a pc with MS Excel. She won't be able to read the files if they are left as .numbers. The odd thing is that I have successfully saved some of the files as .xls and .xls.xls and even some as .xls.numbers.

However, I have lost data when doing some of these savings - I have been taking the .numbers file and trying to save it as .xls but when I open the newly-saved file there's nothing there. Please look at the attached snapshot of my folder structure. Can you anything in there that might be causing my problem? The red arrows are just to highlight the ones I'm particularly interested in.

Numbers 09 :: Cannot Open Password Protected Spreadsheet?
I need to periodically share spreadsheets with a colleague. The spreadsheets contain some mildly confidential information. He creates the spreadsheets on his PC (Windows Vista OS using Excel) and saves each spreadsheet with a password. He then emails each spreadsheet to me.

When I receive and try to open the spreadsheets with Numbers 09, I receive the error: "Import Error. The document is encrypted and can't be opened."

Numbers 09 :: Numbers Files Imported From Excel Are Very Large?
I maintain a few moderately large Excel files. A typical file may have ten to forty tabs and each tab has 100 rows and 30 columns, let's say. They normally range from 1MB to 5MB although I have a large file has has reached 30MB.

I would like to use Numbers but every time I import an Excel file into Numbers, and then save as a .numbers file, the resultant file is always much larger than the original Excel file. I tried this again today after cutting down a 5MB Excel file to 1.5MB but the Numbers equivalent was three times larger than the reduced Excel file.

Numbers 09 :: How To Open Excel File From PC With Password
I just bought a new iMac. They (Apple Store) transferred all of my files from my PC over to my iMac.

Software :: Reading Password Protected Files?
My friends HDD corrupted its self, so i've got it plugged into my computer and can see all the files through Ubuntu.

Now, when i say Files, i mean i can see all the folders and some files.

All the Folders are there, but like in windows an account has been made and a password put on it, so i can't copy these folders across to my computer because i can't read them so to speak.

I can get all the passwords if need be, but i don't get a password prompt or anything?

Any ideas how to get round it?

OS X Leopard :: Secure Password Protected Pdf Files?
In topic (now archived) Roam gave the password method using the print dialogue [URL] I recently stumbled on this and it seems useful - as long as it is not too easy for hackers to unlock it again. Anyone have thoughts on how easy that would be? I am pleased that some tips on the web eg using coloursync to open and freeware do NOT work, but there is also $50 'professional' removal software.

Or am I barking up the wrong tree and need to use Filevault? NB I do not ever deliberately use the Home Folder myself (being the only user of the computer with my own filing system); however the system and some installers seem to use it and I don't want to be entering master password every time some application needs info out of the home folder. In fact FileVault seems a bit OTT.

MobileMe / IDisk :: Public And Password Protected Files Or Folder?
Can I have files/folders in my Public iDisk that some are "really" public, and some are password protected? I would like to have one folder that is really public that anyone can get to, including me, without any password authentication required. I would also like to have a folder that is password protected that I can tell people the password to and they can get at this content and also upload content they want to send me. The rest of the iDisk should be accessible to no-one but me when I log in. Is there a way to structure my MobileMe account like this? So far, it seems that there is one "Public" folder and everything in it is treated the same, i.e. everything either has or doesn't have a password. And everything else is protected from everyone but me.

OS X Leopard :: Opening Files In Word And Excel - Blank Or Nothing At All?
I am a newbie to Mac (going on my third week) and am having problems with MS Office documents and spreadsheets. Most of the time opening a .doc from Finder will result in a "cloud" but Word does not open. The same with Excel. Sometimes Word opens in a blank document, but mostly nothing at all. Sometimes it works out just fine. I haven't been able to figure it out.

If I open the same document from Word (File-Open), then it always works just fine. The same happens with email documents, the file downloads but nothing else happens.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Excel Files Opening At Log In?
Excel is opening closed files from prior sessions when I log into my Mac Pro on Lion.  I want excel to launch at log in, but I don't want it opening a lot of files that I have no interest in and since they are big, they take a lot of time to open.  I haven't been able to find the setting that will eliminate this problem.  Does anyone have any information about whether there is a setting or whether this is "a Feature"?

Applications :: Saving As Excel In Numbers
I recently bought a Macbook Pro (and loving it) with iWork 09 pre-installed. I really like using numbers compared to office. However, I have just started working in a group where all the other members use Windows with Office 2007. I have been able to save my numbers (and pages) documents as the office equivalent. My problem lies when I am working on a document in numbers that is the office format. I like to continuously save my progress but whenever i press save, I have to save it as a whole new document or replace the existing one. When I used to work in office 2007 I used to just press save every now and then and it would save my changes. Am I doing something wrong or is it because I am working on an excel spreadsheet in numbers (word document in pages)?

Applications :: Rounding Numbers In Excel?
A sheet of ply comes 1220mm wide and my staircase is 1200 wide. Therefore I get two out of one cut of ply. Used an 'if' function <1220 to divide by two as I get two out of one sheet if it's less than 1220.

Cell D11 calculates the amount of ply (as width measurement) needed by using an 'if' function, and E11 works it out as an actual sheet. The problem is it's showing 0.47 instead of rounding it to the nearest whole sheet (1), even if only 10mm is used I need to buy a whole sheet.

Applications :: Using Excel Formula In Numbers
I am a newly converted Mac user and have some entrenched Excel habits, and try as I might, I couldn't locate this Excel formula in Numbers.

In Excel, I use "=C55 (or cell reference)" to copy that particular value from one worksheet to another.

I do this by clicking on the cell where I want the value to be copied to, type = and then switch to the other worksheet and click on the cell I want to copy. And voila, I am now back onto my 1st worksheet with the value showing. I do this because the value I want to copy to this cell changes regularly.

Numbers 09 :: Opening Files From The Cell You Last Edited?
I use Numbers a lot for my financial stuff and always wanted to open files so I can immediately see where I left. For example I keep track of my credit card transactions and its now down to row 250. Whenever I open the file, it always displays row 1 which is the old entry that I don't need to deal with. Does anyone know how to make the file open exactly where you left before - ie if i edited row 250 last time, it should open the file showing row 250.
