I have created a Numbers spreadsheet ot create acataluge of my books. The file is simply called Books.numbers.
I now find on my desktop two folders - Books.numbers.sb-be4ae974-2tdLVg and Books.numbers.sb-be4ae974-A7nKNd. The former has sub folders called Data, Index and Metdata. The other has a Metadata dubfolder and several Preview.jpg files.
What are these folders, and do I need to kepp them. Doe sNumbers always create such folders?
Thanks

GF,
You may have a third party app on your system that automatically expands zIp files. If so, this app could be causing this problem because a Numbers document is in fact a Package file that appears to be a compressed file to some programs.
