Office For Mac

Share files across Office for Mac and Office

Cell formatting, sparklines, and data bars look great in Excel for Mac 2011, and you can easily share files with people who have Office 2010 without losing your formatting. Doug and Jessica show you right here, almost live, from Mom 2.0 in New Orleans.

And here is how Jessica uses Excel for Mac 2011 to work on her expenses while she is at Mom 2.0.

    I generally have no problem transferring files by email attachment using Office for Mac. I have one odd exception, however, and that is when I send files to myself from one of my Dell laptops running Office for Windows. Whenever I email a file attachment from my Dell it shows up on my MacBook Pro as a “.dat” file that I then am unable to open. Be it a Word, an Excell, an Acrobat pdf document, it doesn’t matter. All documents emailed from my Dell to myself end up converted on my MacBook Pro to a “.dat” formatted file.

    What’s odd is that I can email that very same document to a third party, who in turn emails it back to me, and it will retain its original format when I then open it on my MacBook Pro.

    I am running the most current version of Office for Mac (2011) on my MacBook Pro, as I just bought it a month ago. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks!!
