Trag,

Sun MicroSystems USED to offer a complete FREE MS Office substitute - the StarOffice.
Don't know if the offer is still valid, or discontinued.
Check their website.

Cheers

oh, and if you send someone something from one of those programs, and the reciever only has Excel, can they still open it? Can those programs open Excel files?

Open Office purports to be 100% MS Office compatible


I ahven't used it though, as I make sure the company buys MS Office.

Yes, someone with Excel will be able to open the file.

** NOTE: We've used Open Office and have noticed there are some issues if in Excel you use Forms or Control tools and then open that file in OO. We had a problem getting them to work properly, but the formula functions work fine.**

Hope that helps,

Drew
