    I presume that you mean whether there are compatibility issues between files generated from the Excel in Office 2010 (PC) and Mac Office 2008.

    I have no personal experience with it. However, Office 2008 for the Mac is supposed to be 100% file compatible with Office 2007 (PC). I believe that Office 2010 uses the same file formats as Office 2007.

    The 64 bit version of Excel in Office 2010 (PC) can handle much larger files than the 32 bit version of Excel, so that might be an issue. Few people use the 64 bit version, though.
