    I've downloaded the converter from mactopia and can convert the docx files, but cannot find anything free to convert xlsx files. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    NeoOffice might be able to open xlsx, otherwise contact the person who gave you the files and ask for them in a normal format.

    And if you just need to view them and are running Leopard, quicklook will let you view it, including support for multiple spreadsheets. :)

    NeoOffice and QuickLook

    Thanks for these great suggestions, and so fast. Can I use NeoOffice with Leopard? I saw an article on the NeoOffice website that warns of severe problems with Leopard. I'm running a new MacBook that was sold with Leopard as the OS.

    With QuickLook, I can look, but can't copy and paste into another spreadsheet, or even print so that's a problem.

    Thanks.

    I use NeoOffice in my Macbook with Leopard on a regular basis and haven't had any problem. I guess the warning posted in their web site refers to incompatibilities caused by certain application enhancers and Leopard, those are documented also in these forums. If you haven't installed any of those in your system you should be fine.


    Cheers! :apple:
