If you can get your contractors to install PC-Exchange on their
Macintoshes, they can write to PC-formatted diskettes directly. The
utility is a part of System 7.5, but works will all System 7.x
installations. They can even give them PC filenames so you can open the
docs directly through the File Manager. If you have trouble locating it,
check Apple's site at http://www.apple.com
Hope this helps !!
