Can this be replaced with "wouldn't have been able to attend"? I think the original is more common.
18.5)Sally told me about the conference, so I was able to attend it.
=> If Sally hadn't told me about the conference, I couldn't have attended it.

You seem to have misunderstood the meaning. The two mean the same thing, but there's only expression difference, I guess. I'd like to know which is preferred.
It was the answer to mayita, and this site's reply system is not clear as it doesn't show who I responded to. I'm still wondering which of the two is more common.
