    Hello everyone!

    I love iWork and use it all the time, however, I have never really used Numbers before. My professor recently gave me an excell file and I need to input some of his research data so that he can put it into SPSS. I do not have excell on my home computer (although, I can access it from school). I would love to just be able to use Numbers because I could do it on my own computer and then export it into an excell file. Has anyone done this? Do you perceive any problems? I just want to make sure that it will be okay because it's not my file - it's his.

    I know this is basic but please help! Thanks :)

    Yes. Numbers works seamlessly with Excel.

    You should be fine for most common functions. Only if you're using Excel's more advanced features will you run into compatibility issues.
