    Hi, I recently transferred all of my documents that were created in Microsoft Office 2004 from my old iBook G4 to my new MacBook Pro. When doing so, I noticed that all of my Word (i.e. .doc) and Excel (i.e. .xls) documents were no longer visible in Finder BUT were visible and could be opened from within the Word and Excel applications themselves.

    In essence, it seems that Finder is hiding these documents and I would like to "unhide" them, if that is the case.

    Does anyone know what I can do to make these documents visible in Finder so that I can, for example, rename them and/or move them to another folder?

    Well, it turns out that all I had to do was restart my computer for the transfer to take effect in Finder... go figure. Mods, feel free to close this thread.
