Re: Spreadsheet

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello Gary:

I've not tried the newer version of Excel or LibreOffice Calc, but I've tried 
 OpenOffice which is also free.

I prefer QuattroPro for spreadsheets, but have used Excel for
those projects where the client requires it.  I have found
OpenOffice Calc to be very similar to Excel.  You might want
to try that and see what you think.

I believe that OpenOffice was created for the Linux platform and
was ported to the Windows platform about 7 years ago.  That has
given the developers to work out any bugs.

Good Luck,
