We’ve supported the Macintosh with Excel-based products since the Mac first came out in 1984. (In fact, way back then we received an award as one of “100 Most Important Companies on the Macintosh.”)
But a few years ago, Microsoft threw us a real curve when they dropped VBA macro functionality from Excel 2008 for the Mac. As you may know, it’s those complex and sophisticated macros (which you can’t see) that make our software really powerful and easy to use. So our Mac users had to settle for Excel 2004 to run our software
Thankfully, Microsoft has seen the light and restored VBA in their new Excel 2011; and we wasted not a moment getting to work re-writing our products to make good use of the new Excel. It was no small task, but now all of our products are truly Mac-compatible.
Not only will you have the advantage of Excel’s new interface and features, but you’ll now be able to use the latest versions of RealData software on your Mac — even REIA Express, Version 2 and the RealData Real Estate Calculator — and you’ll see all of our programs run at speeds that are orders of magnitude faster than they ran with Excel 2004.
(A sidebar note: Because these programs are not simply spreadsheets, Windows versions won’t work properly on the Mac and vice-versa. That’s why we created these new releases specifically for the Mac.)
We’re glad to be back offering the latest and best of our software for our loyal Mac customers.
