Alison, Which MS Excel format do you save your doc in before emailing back
to your employer?

If you are saving in .xlsx  (Microsoft Excel 07/2010XML, try sending in
.xls format (Microsoft 97/2000/XP2003)

I am a current mac user coverting from linux and have been OO user for over
10 years. As a linux user I found using .xlsx formats would cause
formatting issues. I had less issues when using xls.
