What was not tested
Installed with Wine 1.1.16 using the HOWTO in AppDB Excel 2007 page. Used overrides for riched20 and usp10. Then upgraded to 1.1.20.
VBA and macro recording actually WORKS when DCOM98 is installed and ole32, oleaut32 and rpcrt4 overrides are used. However these overrides cause Excel to crash in file open/save.
After installing, set riched20.dll to native (needed for some dialog boxes and numbers on graphs to display properly). It is not necessary to install the dll, as Office installs its own version. Do not set this override globally unless you have Office installed in a separate wineprefix.

When i click on File->Open the application waits for long and thn a crash report is shown.
When one document(excel or word) is open and when i click on another document it never opens up.
I then close it. and then when i try to open the another document. The excel application comes up, but it never opens that worksheet.
