Yesterday, I transferred a Microsoft excel file from my Windows laptop to my Macbook Pro so I can continue working on it on the Macbook. Unfortunately, I couldn’t open the excel xlsx file because there wasn’t any compatible application on the Macbook that can open it.
After disturbing google, I discovered that OpenOffice for Mac can open excel files that are saved in xlsx format. I downloaded and installed it on my Macbook Pro and I now use it create and edit Excel files.
You can download the app at no cost at openoffice.org
Alternatively, you can purchase Microsoft Office for Mac or Numbers app in the App Store
