Mac-Compatible Releases of RealData Software
last! Microsoft has released Excel 2011 for the Macintosh, so we have
been able to build all-new Mac-compatible versions of our RealData
the Big Deal? (or, Microsoft's answer to
"Paradise Lost" for Mac users)
software is much more than your accountant's plain vanilla Excel
spreadsheet. Both the power and the ease of use of RealData's
Excel-based products come largely from something you can't see:
thousands upon thousands of lines of VBA "macro" code driving great
stuff like report generation, goal-seeking, commercial lease wizards
But Microsoft, inexplicably, dropped support for VBA
on the Mac in Office 2008, so users had to settle for Excel
in order to run our programs. Check your calendar -- computer years are
even longer than dog years, so that was old technology.
Microsoft has seen the light and restored VBA in their new
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.
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
magnitude faster than they ran with Excel 2004.
If you're using one of our older Excel 2004-based
programs, we urge you to upgrade to our new releases. Just call us at 800-899-6060. For
the month of January, we'll even take 30% off the price of
any of our Mac upgrades. Or if you're switching to a Mac from
a PC, we'll give the same discount off our cross-platform charge.
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.)
been serving the Mac platform since 1984, and we're delighted to be
doing so again -- properly, with all our latest releases.
by Watching, then Doing -- Videos to Help You Get the Most from
These printed words you're reading are so twentieth century. This is
the age of video, and it's time for us to get with it.
this month, we are building what we hope will be a valuable library of
videos -- brief and to the point -- that will will help you
install, use, and get the greatest benefit from our software. You'll
find videos on some of our most frequently asked tech support
questions, like "How do I enable macros?" or "What
can I do from the custom RealData menu that you've added to
We also have videos to show you how to use some of our most
helpful and powerful features, like goal-seeking and the commercial
property wizards for entering lease data and rollovers.
Our first batch of videos is ready
on our website now. We
expect to grow this library significantly in coming weeks, so please
check back. Also, if you would like to suggest a topic for a video, we
would be delighted to hear from you.

arranged to give you a link to a sample copy. Within that copy
you'll find a link you can click to subscribe.
We think it's definitely worth a look.
