Interoperability for Office across Apple and Windows - Business users need consistency
Embed functions for documents and the ability to launch embedded files from within office suite should work the same across Win and Mac. This is a sad state of affairs. I will have to escalate within the company I work for a partner with both Microsoft and Apple - to see what path the corporation will take. Perhaps we can find an alternative to Office that is truly cross platform.

Agreed - we don't need full OLE features. We need to be able to at least extract the embedded file so we can view it! Every answer on the MS support website requires you to rename files or run macros to do this. Please make it so you can see a "list of embedded files" and choose what to do with them.
