    *** Mac OS users who save files to shared folders should ensure that they append the appropriate file extension to the end of their file names so that Windows users are able to easily open documents created on Mac OS computers. The more common extensions are .doc for Microsoft Word files, .xls for Microsoft Excel files, .ppt for Microsoft PowerPoint files, .cwk for AppleWorks files, and .fp5 for FileMaker Pro databases.
