compatibility of excel files between mac and pc ?
does anyone here have experience w/ this problem.
say one has an ms excel file written in a pc machine.
then that file is saved in a usb drive like one of those kensington traveller.
then one uses that file in a macbook or macbook pro using mac's ms excel program.
i had no problem reading that file on the mac but if i edit that file, somehow the mac wont allow me to save it.
is this normal or there is a way around it ?
however, what i notice was. if i load that pc based excel file into the mac , edit that file in mac and save as a different file, then it will allow me to save it.
Why is that ?
What i really want to do is work on the excel file on both pc and mac without any issues.
Are you trying to save the file directly on the USB drive or are you copying the file over to your Mac first?
It's possible that the USB drive is formatted as NTFS, which would explain why you can read the files on your Mac but not write to them.
Tks for the help.
