    I don't think MS Office was ever in the App Store

    If you insist on getting Office for Mac, get the student/teacher version. Outlook for Mac is castrated by MS' s inability to correct some basic issues - namely, it's unable to import e-mails from Mail.

    It's also missing the ability to resize images/videos in the actual e-mail - which Mail does.

    Really the only reason I need MS Office is because it reads/converts the stupid CSV spreadsheets that my company sends me via email. If i had another way, i would not buy it. Any suggestions? These are Excel files in a CSV format.

    Numbers can open CSV files. It is available on the Mac App Store.:)

    Have you tried Google Docs spreadsheets? I think it can import CSV's.

    Use LibreOffice, since Oracle abandoned OpenOffice.

    From what I've read, Apache is now maintaining OpenOffice.

    Either is preferable to buying bloated Microsoft Office unless you need to do some VBA stuff.
