    adobe question...
    sorry if this is in the wrong forum...

    i'm on week 2.5 of weening myself off the dell inspiron and
    onto the ibook g4 and here is my question regarding email
    attachments: i have adobe 6.0 on the dell and downloaded
    adobe 7.0 on the mac, and the excel spreadsheet attached
    to an email opens seemlessly on the pc but not at all on the
    mac. pdf file attachments are fine on both; the .xls is not
    working out on the ibook.

    any suggestions?

    many thanks...

    Adobe (I assume you mean Acrobat but it really does not matter) does not open Excel spreadsheets. This is true on all platforms.

    You can purchase and install Microsoft Office 2004 or download and install NeoOffice. NeoOffice is much cheaper but does not handle complex spreadsheets perfectly. There are probably other options but those are the two that come to mind.

    i suppose it's ms office 04 that's enabling me to open it
    on my dell, eh? any way for a non-tech (me) guy to know?

    Yes open an xls file and see what program it was opened in. The help dropdown from the program should tell you what the program is if you are not sure.
