Mac Pro OS is 10.7.5 2 2.66 GHz dial core Intel Xeon
iMac OS is 10.13.6 2.7 GHzx Intel core i5.

For reasons of Microsoft macros 4.2 last of forwards compatibility, I have a mix of G3, G5, Mac Pro and iMac. I need them to talk to each other but the differences in specs inhibits this.

I need to copy macros and excel data at least from the Mac Pro to the iMac (the most modern I have).

Hello and welcome,

Just for clarification:
-Are you trying to copy Excel files between the Macs, or macros within Excel?
-Do they have different versions of Microsoft Office/Excel?

A little more explanation might help us troubleshoot the issue.

Thanks in advance,

C

I have a variety of excel files and a number of macros written in Microsoft 4.2. All these live in the G3 which, to make things more difficult, doesn't output to USB! I need to move the lot to iMac but can make the transfer via the other two if need be.

OK thanks.

Which exact model is the G3? Which version of Mac OS?

Depending on the model, you may have to buy a USB floppy drive, and copy them via floppy disks. ;) Or, if you can connect at all to email on the G3, you could try emailing the files to yourself.

Because Microsoft Office 4.2 (Excel 4.0) is almost 25 years old, you may have some issues opening them, and with macro compatibility.
