File Format Preference

Post by Byron Siegel » Sun Nov 03, 2013 1:17 pm

Aside from using templates (*.pmv), are there other advantages to using the PlanMaker file format (*.pmd) over the Excel 2007/2010 format (*.xlsx)?

TIA, Byron

PlanMaker "knows" a few functions that do not work in MS Excel (they are all listed in the manual: http://www.softmaker.com/english/manuals_en.htm). If you save your file in MS Excel file format (.xls or .xlsx) these functions get lost (they are replaced by their results). Apart from that there are not many disadvantages if you use .xls or .xlsx instead of .pmd or .pmv as file format.
