Hi,

Just transferring from PC and love the Apple. But im creating some graphs and things in Numbers and when I send them to others even in Excel format the graphs are strange with numbers reversed and things.

If I ordered Microsoft Office for the apple would everything be fully compatible. Any advice would be appreciated.

Mike

For the most part iWork files (if you saved them in the correct format) should be compatible with the PC version of MS Office. Not everything will be exactly the same - but should be close enough to be usable. Certain files with graphs and or clipart may not display properly though.

The Mac version of MS Office (2008) does afford good compatibility when porting to the PC version. However, you might want to try the free version of Open Office for the Mac first. Download from here.

Regards.
