Excel/SFDC/Mac

Is there an effective way to link Salesforce.com & Excel with a Mac

Our company uses an Excel based bidding form that needs to integrate with the customer information based on SFDC.

Thanks for any help.

Is it bi-directional or only one way?

One way. From SFDC to my spreadsheet. Thx

reports can export to .xls files which are openable with Excel on the Mac, I don't know of a good way to integrate directly into an existing spreadsheet without writing some custom code.

Not sure if they work on the Mac or not, but you could try the Office integration package (has component for Excel) or the Excel Connector from the Developer.salesforce.com site.
