Will NeoOffice program successfully read .EXE from my PC ?
What changes will I encounter?
Please detail the steps I take to accomplish the transfer.
Is it safe?
I am using OS X Tiger .

1. No. .exe files are Windows executable files and will not run under OS X
2. No major changes to your Excel spreadsheets.
3. Put the files from the PC on to a thumbdrive or cd, walk over to the Mac, insert media, drag the files onto the Hard Drive. Put them into your Documents folder. (that part is not important, just tidy)
4. Yes
5. That's fine

Hope that helps

Thank you for the information.
I am sorry..I meant to ask if xls files would be read by program as well as the sheets if more than one.
Not EXE.
Sorry.

NeoOffice saves and loads MS Office files of the versions 95/97/2000/XP/2003. But that's noted at the web site so I would be duplicating that site to answer this.
