I'm looking at using the iFolder on a Novell server to synch an Excel file
between it and my Mac.  This same file is put there by a PC user who reading
and writing.  I'm only reading.  Haven't tried it yet but am hopeful.  After
the synch action, you could use AS to get the data on your Mac.... I hope...
