My cousin’s purpose for wanting Office for Mac is so he can view and do a little editing of Excel files created on Windows Office — change data in cells and maybe tweak a formula. I told him about Open Office by Sun, and he said it wouldn’t read Excel files correctly. Is that true? I would think basic editing (change data in cells) should cause no problems. Maybe tweaking a formula would.
I have iWork, but viewing Windows Office doc’s the font is not available in iWork (format is fine), so I bite the bullet and got Office for Mac so I wouldn’t have any problems whatsoever. Is that true? Some say only by running Windows’ Office via Bootcamp would there be no problems whatsoever. I would think running Mac Office should provide a perfect translation of imported files from Windows Office.
