    There are frequently formatting issues in such a situation. Does the recipient need to modify the file? If not, send it as a pdf.

    To be pedantic, your first post mentions Pages (although with a small p) and your second post mentions Excel. So either you meant Numbers the first time, or Word the second. :)

    This might work, might not.

    I'd try saving the Pages doc in Word format (on originating computer).

    Then, open it using LibreOffice.

    How do the tables "come through"?

    If they need "adjusting", can you do it in LibreOffice?

    And then.... save from Libre to Word?
