    Hey guys,

    Second post for me. I am trying to write a paper for my statistics class. In doing so I had to run a program at school to convert raw data to table form. I copied and pasted those tables as picture into Word on a pc at school then saved it on to my flash drive as a word doc. Ok sounds great. I try to run the file on my mac and Word pops up a window that says "Converting: Metafile" but the pictures come up as this horrible mess of nothing. I have ran the file on 2 different PC's and the pictures/graphs come up just fine. Anyone have any idea why it won't show on microsoft office for apple?

    Thanks

    If you paste the tables into Word from the PCs as images/pictures rather than simply pasting them with CONTROL-V, then it should be fine in other versions of Office (including Office for Mac). :)
