There *is* no Ribbon or Microsoft Office button in MacXL. it is not a
matter of making them "come up", they do not exist.
The versions are most different in the User Interface - the underlying
functionality is largely the same. If you can get past the lack of
cook-book U/I instructions, you will be able to do most anything in XL08
that you can do in XL07.
If you cannot, then you can run Office 2007 in bootcamp, or Parallels,
