.numbers .xls without loss of data?

hi all. i love numbers but have recently bought Excel and am in desperate need to finish a spreadsheet that i am having trouble finishing in numbers.
does anyone know if i can simply open a numbers file in xls and not lose any data whatsoever?
i may need to try this but i can't do it if i lose the data as i will have to spend a month recreating it.
thank in advance for any pro level advice...

thanks jerrold.
you and wayne are a godsend in helping me get this done. i am trying to finish this up in numbers but may do one test in exporting to xls to see how it looks.
also really looking forward to the numbers upgrade you were kind enough to bring to my attention.
big thanks...

    I think you should call via phone or perhaps take it to a phone store. I suggest taking your id, box packaging and other necessities such as the reciept of the phone being purchased.

  • How to get rid of iCloud without loss of data?

    I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me getting rid of the deamon, without losing the data on my devices:

  • HT4527 i have an ipad iphone and ipod all synced with my old windows 7 pc how do i sync them with my new imac without lossing my data

    Help I dont understand the instruction. I transfered by date using the migration assistant which didn't work that well as it locked all the file. I managedto sort this out but it did nt transfer this automatically to itunes. what do I need to do now ?

    It's alright, I don't have a Mac so I get confused too. The option key should be somewhere to the left of the space bar and look like it is trying to represent railway points.
    I don't know how migration assistant works, but presumably it has dumped an iTunes folder somewhere on the Mac. Inside that should be a file called iTunes Library.itl that is the core of the library. Unfortunately iTunes "thinks different" so we can't just double click the file to open it, that opens whatever the "current" library is instead, so you'll need to hold down option (shift for Windows) to get a dialog to choose or create a library. Click choose and browse to the relevant file.
    If iTunes can't play your music at this point and gives the exclamation mark of doom then we need to go back to the Windows 7 library, tweak it up for easy export then bring it over again. Overview here. Customized instructions on request.

  • Exchanging Battery on Macbook Pro without loss of data

    Hi all,
    I know that when I close the screen on my MBP it is supposed to go to safe sleep AKA hibernate and I should be able to swap batteries. Then on starting it back up, it should go back to the state it was at when I closed the screen.
    Now, when I swap batteries, the computer just dies and I have to do a brand new restart. Any ideas?

    I guess I didn't make myself clear enough:
    I KNOW that I can just shut my computer off and switch batteries and turn it back on. The reason why I want to switch batteries is because on long flight, you guessed it, one will run out of juice and I have a spare one.
    Powering down and back up takes time and makes noise. I know for a fact that it is possible to keep the computer in sleep (starts up faster again, right?) while swapping the batteries. It worked for my powerbook, it USED TO WORK for my MPB and it works according to the how to section.
    My question is: If it's supposed to work, and it used to work, how can I make it work again?
    Not: How do I switch out a battery?

  • Resize boot partition without loss of OS on C:\ drive and data loss on D:\ drive

    I have an SBS 2011E server with a RAID 1 Mirror.
    I need to resize the C:\ drive which has the OS on it.
    The D:\ drive has lots of space on it but it also has a SQL Database that is ArchiOffice and some other minor software.
    Can I shrink D: without loss of data and can I extend C: without loss of OS using Disk Management?
    If I need third party software, which do I need?

    Hi Susie2229,
    Based on your description, I test in my Lab environment. However, it seems that can’t achieve your target via
    Disk Management.
    I Shrink Volume on E drive via Disk Management. Then an unallocated partition occurred. It’s in the right of
    E drive (if the unallocated partition is next to C drive, you may be able to extend volume). However, when I right click the C drive, the Extend Volume option is grey out. I can’t extend the C drive by using that unallocated partition. If my testing process
    didn’t follow your original thoughts. Please feel free to let me know.
    There is a similar thread that you can refer to. It may help you.

  • Can I upgrade from snow leopard to mountain lion without losing my data?

    Have finished an upgrade to snow leopard without losing any data on each of 9 MacBook Pros so far.  (Have 9 more to go) Can I do the mountain lion upgrade on them without losing data or must I back up the detritus of 4 years use by teachers who despite all pleas have never backed up their documents?  Would appreciate a swift reply as everyone wants their mbp's back in their hands on Monday morning. My thanks in advance to any gurus who care to reply as my local gurus seem to have fled the ashram for the weekend.

    Installing a new version of OS X should not lead to any data loss. Of course, it's best to have a backup if anything 'goes wrong' but simply isntalling the new OS shouldn't damage any data.

  • Operating system causes loss of data during writing to file continuously

    Within a while loop I read data from serial port (9,5KByte/sec, bluetooth dongle via serial port protocol) and writes them to a file (text-file) continuously. The operating system interrupts the while loop periodically which causes a loss of data. If I read data from serial port without saving them no data get lost.
    E.g. on my PC the OS (W2K) wakes up a second hard disk exactly once per hour which freezes the data saving process to the 'saving' hard disk (and therefore also the while loop, data reading) for about 5-6 sec. On a Laptop the OS (XP, one single hard disk) interrupts the data saving process every 10 minutes for about 1 sec. during the first hour and not any longer afterwards.
    I have al
    so tried to use the 'deny read/write' option of the 'Open File.vi' to prevent other file sweeping applications (backup, anti-virus, Fast Find) to open the file simultaneously which could temporarily deny you write access to the file - no success.
    BTW, this concerns also the compiled version of my LV7.1-program.
    Any suggestions?

    Use two loops, one for reading the serial data and a separate one for writng to the file. The first loop reads the serial port and writes the data to a queue. The second one reads the queue and writes to the file. Put a delay in each loop, perhaps zero milliseconds in the serial loop and 10 ms in the file loop (try various values). This causes the LV scheduler to share CPU time between the two loops.
    Now the serial loop will acquire the data and store it in the queue which also serves as a buffer. If the file loop gets blocked by the OS, the data just stacks up in the queue.

    Your i-device was not designed for unique storage of your media. It is not a backup device and media transfer was planned with you maintaining a master copy of your media on a computer which is itself properly backed up against loss. Syncing is one way, computer to device, updating the device content to the content on the computer, not updating or restoring content on a computer. The exception is iTunes Store purchases which can be transferred to a computer.

  • Exporting Video without lossing quality. A Nightmare!

    Hi all,
    a recently bought a Sony Handycam HDR-CX160e, which records videos in HD, in AVCHD format (.MTS files). I cannot import / export a file using imovie without lossing quality. What I do is:
    a) Record the video in HD Standard Quality. It saves the video in .MTS format, 1440x1080 (25i).
    b) Import the video into iMovie
    c) Without editing anything, i click Share->Quicktime, using this configuration:
       - Format: H.264
       - Data rate: 16500 kbps
       - Image resolution: 1920 x 1080 HD
       - Framerate: current
       - Key frame: auto
    When I play the video in the mac the quality is more or less the same, but when i play it in the TV the movements arent as smooth as the original; also the original video is a little bit sharper (clear).
    How do I have to export the video in order not to lose quality? Is posible in iMovie? Should I use another configuration (framerate, data rate or something) when exporting the video?
    Thanks very much in advance,

    For one thing, when you record at 1440x1080, iMovie will automatically import it at 960x540. So you can export at Large (960x540) and that is about as good as you get. If you export at 1920x1080, it will double the 960x540 to create it.
    If your camera has a 1920x1080 mode, use that. If it has multiple 1920x1080 modes, use the one with the highest bit rate.
    If your camera offers a progressive mode, use that. 1080P will look better than 1080i in iMovie.

  • IBooks does not open. It only briefly shows an empty  bookcase. I have all my important .pdf reference documents in my library.  I was never able to figure out how to backup ibooks.  I am afraid to reinstall the apps risking loss of data. Any way to save?

    IBooks will not open with new ipad and upgraded iOS. It only opens briefly to show an empty  bookcase. I installed the most recent update of iBooks. In apps store it says 'open'.  But the same thing happens...a brief flash.  Strangely, the image and list of my collection actually shows in miniature with all the open apps; so I can close it as I do any other app.
    I have all my important .pdf reference documents in my library.    I am afraid to reinstall the apps risking loss of data. I was never able to figure out how to backup ibooks. Any way to save without access to the program?

    Now that you have your PDFs on your computer's iTunes library you could try deleting and redownloading the app, and then sync the PDFs back to it - as long as you continue to keep a copy of the PDFs on your computer (and preferably on a backup as well) then if the same thing happens again then you could delete and reinstall again (you shouldn't have any problems with the iBooks app, but then you shouldn't have had a problem this time either).
    You could try GoodReader (you could have the most important PDFs in both) - but the current version on iOS 7 isn't getting very good reviews in terms of its speed and crashes (it's description page says that a major update is coming soon).

  • Open a jpg; save a jpg without loss; why not?

    I just purchased Elements 8 to run under Windows 7.
    If I open a jpg in the editor, why do I have to experience the loss of saving it as a jpg? It's already a jpg.
    In Photoshop it is possible to open and save jpg's repeatedly without loss. But not in Elements? Why not?
    I understand that I have the option to save the file in photoshop format and then save it as a jpg again only after the final editing is done and the image flattened.
    And I understand that I have the option to save it as a high-resolution jpg more than once.
    But in Photoshop neither of those processes is necessary.
    It is inconvenient not to be able to open an existing jpg and save it as such, without having to experience the loss inherent in making it a jpg again, when it is already a jpg to begin with.
    Clearly this problem has been solved in Photoshop. Why not in Elements?

    Saving as a jpg implies loss.
    save a RAW file as a JPG -- you have loss -- cannot be avoided because JPG files hold less datasave the same RAW file as a JPG and should get the same result -- same loss
    when a JPG is loaded into PSE, the missing pixels are rebuilt by expanding the data to a normalized form, but this WILL differ from the original RAW, it has to since the JPG save discarded data -- so saving again as a JPG will also discard data and since the loaded expanded form differred from the original form, this new save will discard data a bit differently -- so you get accumulated loss - hopefully not as large as the first JPG save.
    Does PhotoShop differ from this?  I don't see how -- unless it retains the original and keeps changes (which I believe LR does and maybe NX2, not sure).
    So you CAN eliminate compounding the loss by always applying edits to the original -- but that would seem like a difficult task when you get into layers for example, so perhaps PhotoShop can reduce it for some edits -- but I don't have photoshop so I cannot test.

  • Using iCloud seems to imply loss of data

    I have tried to configure iClous on an iMac (latest OS) and iPhone (ditto). I decided to test with just Address Book and Calendar in case I encountered problems (me, cautious?).  It has not yet worked.
    I think the problem is I do not want to accept loss of data from my iMac which questions put by iCloud configuration appear to imply.
    1 am I right that I would lose the data
    2 is there a way of starting iCloud without that loss
    3 why are the configuration questions so oblique
    4 how to I undo what I have done so I can go back to synchronising by cable - at least that worked.
    This is becoming an embarassment in business.

    The message you are getting is when signing out of iCloud. It explains that if you don't choose the default to keep contacts on the Mac, then they will be deleted from the Mac. When you log back into iCloud, they will once again be available on the Mac.
    When you claim it reverts to an inactive mode and choose to keep the contacts on the Mac, it means you're just not logged into iCloud. All features of iCloud will not be available until you log back in. But your contacts will still be in Address Book if you chose to keep them locally.
    Calendars work differently. Once you log into iCloud and check to use calendars in iCloud, they will not be stored locally on the Mac. Once you log out of iCLoud, the calendars in iCal will not be available until you log back in.
    Data stored in iCloud works the same as Calendars.
    If not logged into iCloud on a computer, all content is still available at the website iCloud.com.

  • Every time isync resets causes loss of data

    I have two computers. 1 running 10.4.11, 1 runnin 10.5.5
    I frequently sync the PB with 10.5.5. However when I sinc my PB running 10.4.11 the message appeared that .mac was reset and I am asked to replace the data on my computer or on .mac
    The same will occur tonight, when I go home and will try to sync again the PB running 10.5.5.
    In the past these resets have caused me a lot of grief and loss of data, as the two computers have different contacts and bookmarks.
    Of course this never occurred when both computers were running 10.4.11
    How can I sync both computers without these random "resets"

    If you're syncing between Macs via .Mac/MobileMe, then you are using *MobileMe Sync*, not iSync.

  • How do I install OSX onto a new SSD (in the place of my optical drive) without transferring all data across.  However, with the applications, system and library on the SSD to improve the speed, but keep non essential items (the home folder) on the HDD

    I have a mid 2009 13 inch unibody 2.53GHz MacBook Pro.  I'm finding that it doesn't run as quickly as it used to. 
    A genius in the Apple store suggested that I replace my optical drive with an SSD, however only use the SSD for OSX, applications, system and library.  Keep all documents, pictures, music etc on the current hard drive. 
    I would be grateful if someone could help me with:
    1) installing OSX on the SSD without copying across data from the current hard drive
    2) transferring applications, system and library folders across to the SSD so that they still function
    3) changing my settings so that OSX reads the home folder from the current hard drive, as well as all the applications' data (documents, music etc...)
    However, I would like to run iMovie, with all events etc solely from the SSD to speed up the process of editing movies.
    If anyone could help with this, it would be much appreciated.

    If you got the data transfer cable with your SSD, the procedure should be pretty simple - and there should be step-by-step instructions in the box. You're simply going to remove the bottom case of your computer (using a Phillips #00 screwdriver), take out the two screws in the bracket holding the hard drive into place (using same screwdriver), remove the drive and (use a Torx 6 screwdriver) remove the four screws that hold the hard drive in place. Then put in the SSD and reassemble the machine.
    Then you'll plug up the old hard drive by using the SATA to USB cable and use the option key to boot from the old drive. I don't know what data transfer software Crucial provides, but I would recommend formatting the SSD  using Disk Utility from your old drive ("Mac OS Extended (Journaled)" with a single GUID partition) and then use Carbon Copy Cloner to clone your old drive to your new SSD (see this user tip for cloning - https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-4122). You needn't worry about getting an enclosure since you have the data transfer cable and you don't want to use your old hard drive.
    There are a number of videos on YouTube that take you step-by-step through this procedure - many specific to Crucial SSDs and their data transfer kit - do a little searching there if you're unsure of how to procede.
