Software :: Mac And Excel File Transfer From Windows To Mac

Dec 1, 2009

Will my Excel & Word Files work on the newest OS for MAC? I know MAC has Microsoft Word and Excel but if I save all my files to a flash drive will I be able to transfer them to the MAC and will they work? This is why Im nervous about getting a mac.... All my Excel and Word files are the older version of MS OFFICE 97-2003 format.

Applications :: Using Mac Excel - Merge/Filter/Extract Into A Single Excel File?

Feb 6, 2009

I am searching for a plugin, software or a solution for a situation I have with an Excel/Word Mail Merge.

It's a law firm we specialize in DUI/DWI and Reckless Driving defense. We subscribe to a data collection service that pulls data from various court systems around the state. We are then given this data by jurisdiction. The Excel files we receive come with 2 workbooks in one file for Traffic and Criminal arrests data with name, address, reason for arrest, etc, etc.

What I have been doing is opening each Excel file and copying and pasting into a new worksheet only grabbing the DUI and Reckless driving arrests because tis is all I am needing from the various files. I then save the new workbook and do a mail merge with Word from this newly created workbook.

Now my question is there such a plugin or software that will combine all the Excel files I receive from the Data collection house and then be able to filter out only the DUI and Reckless Driving arrests to a single Excel Workbook?

OS X :: SMB/File Transfer Slow With Windows Server 2003?

Feb 3, 2008

After some searching, I've seen three tricks: disabling IPV6 on the Mac, doing the same on the PC (my Windows Server 2003 installation didn't have it installed), and adding a line to my /etc/smb.conf file. None seem to really give me full transfer speeds.

Are there any tricks specific to Windows Server 2003 or anything new to make this work like normal? It's simple file transfer over SMB, seems like at the 5th iteration of Mac OS X we'd have better speeds.

Applications :: Using Mac Excel To Windows Excel?

Nov 10, 2009

When I send my .xls files from my Mac (Office 2008) to my boss's Windows machine (Office 2003), he gets an error message when he attempts to open the excel spreadsheet: Excel has encountered an error and must shut down. I've sent files to other computers and not had a problem, and my boss has received other excel files and been able to open them. So it must be something between these two machines/softwares that is affecting it. Any suggestions or ideas? I can add any additional info you need.

Windows On Mac :: F2 Key In PC Excel Missing In Excel For Mac?

Mar 24, 2010

Recently switched from PC to Mac, I really miss the F2 functionality in Excel for Mac

Or, more specifically , I am missing the possibility to place the cursor in a cell and hit F2 to edit the formula as well as Excel color-coding all cells that are referred to from the current cell.

I know I can do the same by clicking in the "formula builder toolbar" but I don't wan't to have to reach for the mouse each time... does anyone know if Excel for Mac has a similar feature / keystroke to use

OS X :: Can Transfer File From The System To Allow Them To Be Deleted Like A Normal File

Jul 20, 2009

While copying files from my digital camera xD card onto my mini, the Card reader un-mounted itself and remounted its self several times, I have no idea why...Now I have a load of 0Kb files in the folder where I was copying to. I can delete these, but they come up with a "file in use" error message so I need to click for each file to be deleted... ~350 left I did try a restart thinking that may clear up any "pending" file transfers from the system to allow them to be deleted like a normal file

OS X :: Updated Software Now Cannot Open Excel File

Oct 22, 2010

I just used software updater this morning (Oct. 22,2010). Now when I go to open an excel file, it appears to open but doesn't. I can open up other excel files. Other people can open up this same file. I even had someone re-save file with new name, and it still won't open. If I open it directly from Entourage, it will open excel, but not the workbook. The workbook isn't hidden, as I've tried to print and unhide workbook, but it's acting as if there's no workbook open. I think this has something to do with the updated software from this week.

MacBook Pro :: Lost Excel File With System Upgrade

Sep 1, 2014

I have been working on an Excel file for the last month continuously saving at every moment.  At some point something happened and the file name now included a (version 1) after the original file name.  I didn't worry about that because I was able to work on the file and keep on saving my work.  I did some changes yesterday and saved it.  All of a sudden I got a message that there was an upgrade ready to be installed at night.  So I saved the file and did the upgrade. my file was nowhere to be found.  I keep looking at Finder and I can only find a file with a similar name not the one with the (version 1) on it.  I opened that file but it doesn't include any of the changes and updates I have done in the last month.  I never deleted the file and I have double checked on the Trash and its not there.  Is there a way to recover my file? The only thing that I did differently was that I completely powered of my mac as opposed to just closing it.

Applications :: Opening A Numbers File In Excel Won't Work With Extension Of .xls

May 18, 2010

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.

Software :: Microsoft Word 2008 Mail Merge Won't Convert Excel Xlsx File

Sep 27, 2009

Microsoft Word Mail Merge launches a file converter when using Excel files as the data source. Nothing new about that. However, when using Mail Merge in Word 2008 and an Excel xlsx file as data source under OS X 10.6, the file converter will not recognize the file unless the extension .xlsx is actually appended to the file name. The file converter used by Word 2008 still recognizes xls files with or without the extension appended, as did the file converter used by Word X.

Software :: Mac/Windows Excel Translation

Aug 21, 2008

A problem occurs with MS Excel 2004 charts that are copied from Excel, pasted into MS Word 2004 as a "Picture", then sent to a colleague to open in MS Word for Windows.

The problem is that, on the Windows machine, some of the lines in the text boxes are truncated along the right side. The only workaround I have so far is to give the text boxes an extra wide right margin on the Mac. They will look odd on the Mac, but reasonable on the Windows machine.

Likewise, with legends in Excel charts, I have to stretch the legend box horizontally to ensure that legend text is not truncated when the Excel chart appears in an Office for Windows document.
