Converting .Numbers MAC Spreadsheets to .XLS EXCEL

Sometimes, just sometimes, our clients are not able to convert their Costco Order Spreadsheet into the file format we need to view it.  Our offices are windows based - I know - it's 2016, who uses a PC, right?  Well, if you are using a MAC and can't get that file converted, please use Zamzar's Conversion tool.  It seems to do the trick.
