Excel files created on a MacBook Pro does not open on PC


I created a large number of worksheets with the help of Office 365 for MAC on my MacBook Pro (OS X - El Capitan 10.11.6) and then transfer them to a computer that uses Office 2007.  Since week last I was able to open spreadsheets on my PC but I get a warning on the PC that said to check the file comes from a reliable source because that might have viruses that are dangerous for your PC.  I click Open anyway, and the file will open IF you do not see the data.  You do not see the cells.  However, you can see the number of cells and worksheet data in the Ribbon at the top of the screen.

I tried:

various parts and get the same problem.

Reinstall Office 365 on my Mac and Office 2007 on the PC.  No change.

Change the version of xlsx to an earlier version.  No change.

I looked the preferences on my Mac to see if something has changed.  Nothing has changed.

I have installed a new software

I did not put up-to-date Office 365 or my Mac software

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I should look on my MAC?  I posted questions about the Microsoft PC to see if there a problem with 365 I really dislike?  Help.  I have a spreadsheet that is massive, I don't want to have to recreate on a PC, simply because I can't open it.

Thank you

The problem is Office 2007 on PC. You must either 2010 or higher without converter. 2010 and more have an automatic converter for the most recent files, but 2007 will not work. Go to the Microsoft website and you should be able to find the converter here. When the college so I have to work changed in 2010, had to add a tag to our emails with a link to the converter for people using older versions of Office.

After reading your post again, you should be able to save the spreadsheet as a version of Office 97-2003 and be able to open it in Office 2007, but if you still have difficulties, this add-on for Office 2007 must repair.

You can go there. I knew what to look for.  https://www.Microsoft.com/en-GB/download/details.aspx?ID=3

  • File in the windows Explorer 8 does not open

    Hi everyone, I hope that all do you well

    I have problem with my file Explorer in windows 8, that it does not open when I click on file Explorer it stop for a period and relatives and so on

    the hope of finding assistance; Thank you for all


    Each method/step below progresses to another if the first does not all corrupted files which are, etc..

    Have you read this information from Microsoft on the repair of errors and corrupted system files?

    «Use the System File Checker tool to repair missing or corrupted system files»



    And these eightforums.com tutorials are very detailed for the problems resulting from Scan SFC:

    "How to run the command" SFC/scannow"at the start or in Windows 8 and 8.1" . "


    Read it in conjunction with the rest of the information they give link above.


    If SFC could not fix something, then run the new command to see if it can be able to next time. Sometimes, it can take by running the sfc/scannow command 3 times restart the PC after each time completely fix everything what he is capable of.

    If not, then run the Dism/online/Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command to repair damage to the component store,

    Repair-WindowsImage-online - CheckHealth

    Repair-WindowsImage-online - ScanHealth

    Repair-WindowsImage-online - RestoreHealth

    Restart the PC afterwards, and then retry the command sfc/scannow .

    If still no, then try using ONE OPTION above to run the command sfc/scannow at the start

    If still no, then you could do a Refresh of Windows 8, or run a System Restore using a restore point dated before the wrong file occurred to fix. You may need to repeat doing a restore of the system until you find a restore point that is older that may work.

    If not yet, then you can use the steps in the TIP box in the section THREE OPTION to manually replace the files SFC could not fix.


    "How to update windows 8 and 8.1" . "


    Refresh your PC goes like this:

    • The PC starts in Windows RE (Recovery Eenvironment).
    • Windows RE scans the hard drive for your data, settings, and applications and puts them aside (on the same drive).
    • Windows RE installs a new copy of Windows.
    • Windows RE restores the data, settings, and applications, which it set aside in the newly installed copy of Windows.
    • The PC reboots into the newly installed copy of Windows.


    "How to reset Windows 8 and Windows 8.1" . "


    "When you reboot your PC, the drive will be completely reset and all your applications and your files will be removed it." Windows 8 will be reinstalled, and you need to change any settings, and then reinstall all the apps you want to come back after the reset. If you know if all the files you don't want to lose, then you must back up these files before you start resetting.

    See you soon.

  • I have a Seagate backup and all of a sudden all my files have disappeared from him.  My MacBook Pro does not show anything in it, but it shows that it is complete.  Hundreds of photos are missing.

  • MacBook Pro does not charge

    I feel that this question is asked a million times, but I'd like to walk you guys through my situation.

    Retina Macbook Pro 2013 (out of warranty of course) in excellent condition. Fully updated software.

    A year ago, I had a problem with intermittent loading. Of course, I went online and followed the instructions on resetting the SMC. Sometimes it would work, other times not. Sometimes the software updates would trigger the loader to activate when the system is restarted. I would like to try various outlets around the House with none of them work. Is my next laptop Apple certified tech and is it charged out of their fine magsafe charger. I thought, cool, I'll buy a new charger. I understand House and it does not load. This process is repeated for a year. I could get the new charger or one laptop comes with to work. After a time I kind of nailed what I could warm up the bricks of charger with the warmth of the body and get them to come. Kind of weird but it worked... sometimes. If fast-forward a couple of weeks. I could not the computer to load at all. I took a day and I have tried everything in the book:

    • Resetting the SMC
    • Try the different points of sale
    • Warming of the charger
    • Update the system software
    • Leaving the charger unplugged for hours and try again (it of in case of dirty power coming out walls and locks the charger?)

    So I took it to my local tech again and it started to load automatically off not only their Chargers, but both of my friends... He performs a reset SMC, talking about me on the House of tension circuits and sends me on my way, pretty confusing. I get it home and charge the battery to 100%, but two weeks later here I am again with a Macbook Pro which does not load... This time I even tried to load out of a UPS System.

    I consider myself very savvy computer, especially with the Mac. I have a decent background in electrical systems of the classes I took in high school and college. I read the manuals, I do my homework, I take excellent care of my devices. But honestly, *...

    Any ideas would be appreciated. I'll take in addition to anyway. My local tech makes an appointment and I can't get an appointment of bar genius until next week. I have a laptop dead at this time.

    I do my homework,

    Certainly, you made and excluded from all the obvious concerns besides a few non-obvious. The only remaining uncertainty, I can suggest is your domestic food, since your Mac seems to load very well everywhere else. Power of the Mac adapter intelligently will close if it detects bad quality. Other than to call it 'noise' Apple is characteristically silent when it comes to debate just what are the parameters it uses to accomplish this.

    Most inverters do much through food. An alternative is to use a 'real online' or 'double conversion online' UPS, which are more expensive because they are still deriving their battery power, thus isolating their input and output power. Another esoteric alternative that I don't necessarily recommend is to use a ferroresonnant transformer. They are inherently inefficient, but concretely achieve isolation even.

  • My MacBook Pro does not have the Adobe Reader program...


    I have Mac OS X 10.6.8. There can be no Adobe Reader on your computer. A Web site, I was reading an article on higher education said, "you need Adobe Reader to use some of the functions...". "I wanted to download an article and I cold not managed to download so I downloaded Adobe Reader.  I don't know if there is a specific way to install the program as if he was with Adobe Flash, but I clicked on the download and now my MBP does not work properly.  So I think I better uninstall first and try to download again.  Are there specific instructions to download and install Adobe Reader?  or I just download the program and install it?  For some reason that way screwed the Pro macBoo upward and now I'm having a lot of problems and can't open any pdf files.  I had the same problem with Flash until someone in the forum told me that I had to follow the instructions specify that Adobe recommends that one follows the installation of Flash.  Once I have made, or found someone who knew what I asked and did not said 'just download the program and click... "If someone can help me uninstall Adobe Reader and go through the installation process?

    Thank you.

    No.... MacUpdate.com is the site where you can find AppDelete.

    Not to be confused with the Apple software update.

    Two different animals.

    The BIG difference between Reader and Acrobat (except the price) is that with Acrobat, you can create and modify the PDFs. Reader views only them unless they have fields to fill in, but it is still impossible to modify the body of the PDF file.

    Good thing on a Mac is that Preview, which comes with the operating system can create and edit PDF files.

    Unfortunately, a lot of services online such as banks, employers and universities do not play well with preview in your browser so you have the player adds on.

    The process is therefore:

    Download AppDelete to MacUpdate.com

    Install it and run it

    Drag the Reader app to the window.

    Delete EVERYTHING in the window.

    Empty the trash.

    Download the free app from drive X

    Install it.
