Hi, I'm pretty new to Mac's and have a question that probably seems basic to you guys, but nonetheless I still need an answer. I'm a student and I need Excel on my Mac because I'm an accounting major. Most of my courses deal with Excel all the time and I'd really rather not have to use a communal computer from the library to do the majority of my work. Mac-friendly options are not an option no matter how good they may be because I have to use Excel. I have a copy of Microsoft Office For Windows and I've heard that I can use this on a Mac using Bootcamp. I tried to install it and I transferred all the files into Bootcamp, but when I open setup.exe, everything is gibberish. So I guess what I'm saying is, do I need to install some sort of Microsoft operating system to run Office For Windows on a Mac? I'm pretty sure I do. And in that case, where do I get a Microsoft operating system? The whole point of using Office For Windows is that I already owned it and I'd rather not pay for Office For Mac or for an operating system. It doesn't have to be a current operating system because the only Microsoft programs I'll ever use are Excel, Powerpoint and maybe Word. Sorry if this has been asked before, I did a few forum searches and nothing came up.
