Spreadsheet conversion

I'd like to be able to read my Microsoft Works Spreadsheets on my 5550. The Pocket Excel doesn't seem to be able to read them. Any ideas?

Re: Spreadsheet conversion

Perhaps, if you save the spreadsheet as an older version ??? or even as CSV ?

Re: Spreadsheet conversion

I've read the link and it looks as though it's not possible. However I'm interested in CSV. What is that?

Re: Spreadsheet conversion

CSV is comma separated values

that means.. the spreasheet will be saved with a comma in between each column and saved as a CSV file

Steve:

Please post the version of MS Works you are using. There may be an import/export filter on MS website that'll help.

Well, I just went to the Works website (http://www.microsoft.com/products/works/downloads.mspx) and, I was wrong. There seem to be plenty of options for word processing documents but I see nothing for spreadsheets. Sorry. You'll probably HAVE to go with the CSV solution.

Make a great day!

Re: Spreadsheet conversion

Thanks for all your help. I'll contact MS and see if they can sort out some software to resolve the problem!
