You should be able to open files created on either computer on either computer. Since you can open your files on your Mac, your Mac installation appears to be fine. You might try reinstalling Office 2000 on your PC.

I have never had a problem. It must be a bug. Reply 4 of 8 ezzie Posts: 27member October 15, 2003 8:58AM check your compatibility settings. In Office x, select Preferences from the Word menu, click on compatibility from the list on the lefthand side, then click on recommended options for Microsoft 2000-2002 and x. Then click on the Default button to save the changes to your Normal template, good luck, e Reply 5 of 8 firehc Posts: 368member October 17, 2003 2:58AM it works now,thanks Reply 6 of 8 scott Posts: 7,431member October 17, 2003 6:54AM I haven't had too much trouble with this. They seem to work well together.PowerPoint is another story. Reply 7 of 8 mccrab Posts: 201member October 17, 2003 9:58AM Quote:Originally posted by Scott PowerPoint is another story. Never a truer word spoken. PowerPoint is a disaster area as far as compatibility is concerned. What is all this "Converting Metafile" nonsense? And as for font and paragraph formatting...MS should be ashamed of this product Reply 8 of 8 chinney Posts: 1,019member October 17, 2003 10:09AM Quote:Originally posted by Scott I haven't had too much trouble with this.

I take fairly complex PowerPoint documents back and forth between work (Windows PC) and home(Mac OSX) all the time and I have never had a problem. Sign In or Register to comment.
