I recently upgraded my Numbers 08 software to Numbers 09 via the App Store. When I did that, I was left with both versions on my Macbook Pro as the 09 download did not simply upgrade the 08 version. Should I proceed with deleting the Numbers 08 version or will that create problems with the newer 09 version?

    Bill,

     

    There is no need to delete the earlier version, but it won't hurt to delete it either. I don't know of anyone who has any use for the '08 version, considering the number of improvements in the '09 version.

     

    You can just go into the Applicaitons > iWork08 folder and drag the Numbers.app file to the trash.

    Jerrold,

    Thanks. This did solve the problem with no apparent problems with 09--at least for now :^D Makes me feel better about updating the other '08 app versions within Works that need to be upgraded as I know they will probably behave in a similar manner.

    Some of the helpers like to keep the old version around in order to check thsir answers to iWork'08 questions. In my case, I never loaded 08 onto this computer, figuring I'd have little use for it. I think it's still on my iMac, but I'm rarely at that computer.
