    I got a new job as a contractor but I haven't got Windows or Office to use their Excel spreadsheet template. What they do is type something like "4 ridge vents" and it automatically calculates this "each vent is $3 there are 4 so it will cost $12" and it adds that to the last column and adds that number to the "total" cell.

    Is there a way to set this kind of function in Pages '09? I wouldn't mind entering each and every item like plywood and vents and install charges.

    Thanks in advance.

    Numbers will do that. I think it will open the template, too.

    Ok problem. When I pit the cd-rom in I get nothing. It's like it's blank but in disk utility it says it's been burned and it works with other computers. WTF would cause it to not read ANYTHING on my mac? That's a new one.

    The disk with the template on it. I'm assuming this because the people at the office are too crooked mouthed to even guess what's on there.
