I'm not talking about running it via Parallels or some other virtualisation software, but a full-blown Mac version like word, Excel, Powerpoint which have specific Mac versions. Is this some kind of conspiracy to force us to buy Apple's own database, Filemanager, or to force us to use virtualisation software. Come on Microsoft and Apple, give us the low-down. Forum Editor 10:51 22 Apr 2016 I have no idea why this is the case, but I have found that Base does the job really well. This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
