Quattro pro 8 to Excel 98 (Mac version) convertor

Quattro pro 8 to Excel 98 (Mac version) convertor

Does somebody knows a way to convert spreadsheets from Quattro Pro 8 to a Mac version of Excel 98 ???

RE: Quattro pro 8 to Excel 98 (Mac version) convertor

Check your "Save as..." options in Quattro Pro. If you can save it as an Excel file of any type (i.e., Excel for Windows) the Mac version should open it without a hitch.

Otherwise, try saving as a SYLK file and try it.

Otherwise, brute-force it. Copy and paste from Quattro Pro into Excel for windows, save in excel for windows, import to Mac from floppy or otherwise.

Honestly, though, the Mac version of Excel will open any DOS of Windows Excel file. I've done it as I have a Mac at home and a Windoze machine at work.

RE: Quattro pro 8 to Excel 98 (Mac version) convertor

Hi Dave!

Thank you for your suggestion. I've solved the problem.
Saving a spreadsheet in QP8 in Excel format is not working. It will change the extension WB3 into xls and doesn't convert the data.

So, I used MacLink v 11 to convert the QP8 file into Excel format. It works!!! But, it is not possible to recover the graph.

Thanks for your reaction
