    Workflow Roadblock: MS Office for Mac
    Hey guys,

    Calendar Sync:
    Office for Mac calendar doesn't sync with Google calendar! I know that this is old news for everyone else, but.. it's a major stumbling block for me! Do you know if I can run Office inside of Parallels, and have it sync that way? Sync to iCal, which sync's to Google Cal? (So kludgy, thought I was leaving the world of workarounds behind...)

    PST Files:
    So Office for Mac doesn't use these? Do you guys know where or how the data files are stored? I can't seem to find anything about this. I wanted to create a PST on a FAT-32 partition that my Win 7 and OS X could share. I have a feeling this isn't going to fly.

    Why not Apple's apps:
    To answer the question begged, I'm insanely familiar with Outlook: the shortcut keys, the interface, quirks, etc. I'm really loath to leave all the proficiency behind and switch to apple's calendar/contact/etc system. You should see me when I'm in the zone. I work the keyboard like a ansi pianist. Am I missing something?

    Moved to correct forum as it really does not belong in "Switcher".

    And yes, you can run MS Office inside of Parallels, assuming you're referring to the Windows version.

    I'm not entirely sure of what you're trying to do? Are you using Outlook from MS Office 2011 for the Mac?
