    Hello all!

    I work at a local public school district as a web designer, and today I received a .pages attachment from someone (person A) who needed the file on our web site.

    There wouldn't be a problem except there are no Macs in our district with the latets iWork. :( And person A got it from person B, So there's no way for me to access it or have person A convert it themselves. Gah.

    So, if there is anyone out there that would be kind enough to open this up and export it as a .doc or .pdf or anything usable on my PC, I'd appreciate it! :)

    Thanks!

    I understand that, but I don't have the creator's address and it would take too long.


    ravenvii, thank you very, very much!

    Ah, the wonderfulness of this community. 22 minutes from request to acknowledgment of favour completed. Karma points all 'round. :D

    Convince them that their PCs are incompatible with popular formats, like Pages documents. And tell them Macs would be the better way to go. :)

    Indeed!

    Heh, I have... but, I have worked here just enough to begin to understand the intricacies within American school systems and their finances. I truly doubt they will ever give me a Mac. :rolleyes:

    There's another option ...

    run the Pages file through an unzipper ...

    The Pages file format is really a zipped file. Once unzipped, you'll get an XML and a plist (which you can ignore) and a PDF of the file itself. Even works on a PC.
