I use a new Mac at school to write tests, grades, etc.  The computer has MS Office and I use Word and Excel mostly.  I would like to be able to create the documents on my PC at home (pentium with Windows 95) and read/modify them on the Mac.  This Mac does not contain an Intel chip like some of them.  Is ther any software or tricks I can use to do this.  Please e-mail me at randyb@colosys.net.

thanks

Randy

Word and Excel are available on the MAC. If you have a new OS on the MAC >= 7.6 there will be no problem to read DOS-discs and Word and Excel are able to read PC-Files. If you use a lower OS version be sure that PC-Exchange is installed on your MAC. So there will be no problem (For larger documents you can use a SCSI-Zip drive, because the MAC is able to read PC-formated zip-discs)
