MacBook Pro :: Opening/saving Excel And Word Files To Memory Stick?

Apr 30, 2012

Now that Apple have taken over our house with ipads, iphones, ipods etc , I decided to give my Dell laptop to the kids and bought a 13inch Macbook Pro and have installed Office 2011 

The problem I have is with my memory stick Kingston DT Locker which I also use on Windows XP and Windows 7 - I cannot open or save Excel (xls and xlsx) and Word files (doc and docx) from/to the drive  

I can copy files to the Mac, update them and then copy back to the drive  

I can open pdf and jpeg files  It is formatted to FAT32

Applications :: Pages And Opening MS Word Files From A USB Stick

Jan 24, 2009

Up until yesterday I was solely a Windows/PC-based computer user. I am now running Mac OS X with my new Mac Pro. Before turning off my PC system, hopefully forever, I downloaded all my MS Word files to a USB stick. I'm a writer and only worked in MS Word for my work.I just purchased iWork '09 and am very impressed with the Pages App and I'm very excited to start working in Pages '09. when I insert my USB stick with all my Word Docs on it into my Mac Pro, is it a case like under Windows/XP where you just open up each file with the Pages '09 program or is there something more to do to get Pages '09 to open the file up and save it within Pages '09? I understand Pages '09 works with MS Word files (as well as formatting to Word docs to send to colleagues).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Excel And Word 2011 Hang On Saving On IMac But Are Fine On Macbook Air

Feb 7, 2012

I am running Lion 10.7.3 on a 2.8GHz CoreDuo iMac from 2007 and on a Macbok Air 2.13 GHz Core duo from 2010.  The iMac has 4GB of RAM the Macbook has 2 GB RAM. 

I run Microsoft Office 2011 on both machines.  For the same file the Macbook operates normally on Word and Excel.  The iMac is slow at best and when I try a Save As it hangs for up to 15 minutes brfor letting me change the FIle Name. This effectively makes it unusable. 

As far as I can tell the set up of Office on both Machines is identical and I have eliminated duplicate Fonts as suggested by some posts but the problem remains.  I have checked Activity Monitor and I am not getting any Page Outs so RAM does not appear to be an issue.

OS X :: Deleting Files From Memory Stick (Thumb Drive)

Sep 12, 2009

I am still "new" to the Mac world and I have a question about memory sticks/thumb drives and deleting info. I deleted some stuff from a thumb drive and it shows up in the trash can, but when I eject the thumb drive the trash can is empty of the stuff I deleted from the thumb drive. So I figured nothing to delete from the trash can.

So today when I plugged in the thumb drive the stuff that I deleted shows back up in the trash can. So for fun I ejected the thumb drive and the trash was empty. Is this normal? I am now deleting the stuff in the trash can with the thumb drive attached and I can see it "in use" light flashing on the thumb drive.

Applications :: Preventing Invisible Files When Saving Directly From Excel To Network Drive

Mar 19, 2009

I work in a cross platform environment (windows/mac) where we typically save common files to a shared network drive. I've found when I save a file directly from excel (as opposed to saving it locally, then copying it over) it created an invisible ._filename file in the same directory. I know it's a property/resource file for the file that I just created, but it's a little confusing for some windows users and just clutters up the share directory. Is there any way to prevent the creation of the ._filename file while still saving directly from excel?

(I'd prefer not to save locally, then move to network drive - it's cleaner for me if I can just save directly) So far, I've found that this only happens with MS Office. I've opened a sql file in textwrangler and komodo, edited it, and saved it to the network and no invisible files are created.

NOTE: this is different the the fix that apple had published regarding not creating DS_Store files - that refers to copying files from the finder to a network drive and I don't have any problems with that.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Excel Files Opening At Log In?

Apr 16, 2012

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 :: Opening Password Protected Excel Files In Numbers 08

May 28, 2010

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.

Applications :: Using Keyboard On MacBook Stick In Excel

Oct 14, 2010

The keyboard sticks while using Excel in MS office 2004. This is a very odd situation. I have a user that when she is working on her computer, the keyboard will stick when she is working in Excel. The keyboard is working as usual when she is in any other apps on the MacBook. The MacBook is running Leopard 10.5.6(?).
I have not come across any other desktops, laptops running Excel or any other OS that have encountered this.

Applications :: Opening Moved Word Processing Files?

Feb 11, 2009

I have several hundred word processing files I prepared in MS WORD. I moved the folders containing this files from my old computer to my new iMac. Every time I try to open one of these files, I see a box on the screen saying the file cannot be opened.

This is true when I try to use MS WORD for mac, when I try Pages, and when I try other word processors.

I suspect some sort of permissions need to be set for the folders or the files. I hope it can be done in "bulk"

MacBook Pro :: Fast Type Of Memory-stick?

Oct 16, 2008

I've just come across this product at belkin. A 16 GB solid state drive, that flush fits in the express-port of the MBP.

Does this mean, that you can use this as a typical SSD if it is left in the port at all does? Running apps and stuff directly from this? Or is it just a fast type of memory-stick?

Applications :: Saving As Excel In Numbers

Oct 28, 2009

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)?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Excel Doesn't Stick To Mission Control Assigned Desktop

Feb 21, 2012

I've assigned Excel 2011 to a specific desktop in Mission Control. Upon launch, it opens in the assigned desktop, but if I'm on another desktop at the time I launch it, the blank spreadsheet opens on that desktop and not the one assigned to Excel. I know it launches on the assigned desktop because it switches to that desktop momentarily, but then switches back to my current desktop to open the blank spreadsheet. 

If I open an excel spreadsheet while on the Excel desktop, it opens there and stays there, but if I click on the Excel icon in the dock to open a new spreadsheet while on another desktop, the spreadsheet opens on that desktop and not on the desktop assigned to Excel. 

Most of the apps I've assigned to desktops in Mission Control work fine, but Excel and Word don't follow the rules.
