"Plays well with others, Like Excel XP, Fast"
Version: Gnumeric 1.10.16
Opened Excel .xls files even excel couldn't open
Opened Lotus 123 .wk1 .wk4 files
Opened Quattro Pro .wb1 .wb3 files
The look and feel is the same as Excel XP..which is great...Don't need no steenking ribbon.;-)
The .xls files, even a 4mb one popped open just as quick as excel..maybe quicker...when I tried Open Office Calc it was very slow and sluggish...uncomfortably so...not this puppy, it's peppy.
Won't save Lotus 123 or Quattro files in native format...but would convert to .xls...didn't try this, but I'd expect some formatting and formula translation issues
When opened Lotus 123 & Quattro files had some formatting and formula translation issues, but they were minor and correctable.
I have Office XP 2004 vintage with most current file conversion upgrades..works fine on nearly all .xls files and others I've tried it on. Yet when I tried to open a couple of .xls files on my Win7 laptop, I got error popups saying I lacked the resources to fully display the files...These were 1mb files. My PC has 8GB memory..3880mb were completely free & available. That got me to download Gnumeric..When I opened the troublesome .xls files with Gnumeric, they popped right open and displayed with no problems.
