Anyone have any experience with them? I have an employee who can't report his hours or expenses regualrly because he doesn't have Office. So I am trying to figure out how to share the spreadsheets I need completely with Google Docs, but I can't figure out how to keep the formatting. We use formulas and such to calculate mileage reimbusement and so on, and that stuff is not being uploaded with the spreadsheets.

I think I might be able to copy and paste? I don't know much about the formulas though, and don't want to screw things up. Any advice is appreciated.

I've been using Google Docs for a while, and never had a formatting issue. As far as what I've used and transferred to and from Office, everything has been compatible. I can't say for certain whether this is with everything or just with the things I've used it for though, but is seems pretty interchangeable.

Or tell the guy to read up on torrents and hit the pirate bay :)

It might be an version problem. Try saving as an older version and re-uploading? Just thinking out loud.
