This may be common knowledge, but the discovery was new to me so I
thought I'd pass it along.

Issue: Create spreadsheets on either machine and bring them up on the
other without using Classic or QF Exchange.

Equipment: MP2100 and Mac PB running 10.4.7.

Apps: Quickfigure Works on the Netwon and Excel on the Mac.

Technique: Simply create a spreadsheet and email it to yourself,
receive the email on the device you want to see the spreadsheet on.
Copy all, open either Excel or QF Works, highlight the upper left
cell and paste. Voilå.

If you're using text that has been forwarded, you may need to slide
cells around a bit. On the Newton, you can select rows or columns and
drag from cell to cell to tidy things up.
