What works

  • Opening xls/xlsx files
  • Copy (and then paste into OOo)
  • Printing
  • Find

What does not

The following crash it completely (and appear to be the same bug):

  • Help
  • Checking for Updates
  • Open for Editing

One additional note, switching between multiple files causes an odd window behavior.  You can work around it using alt-tab and switch between the documents internally in ExcelViewer.


What was not tested

Just tested with two random spreadsheets. Not all spreadsheet features may have been tested.

Hardware tested

Chart text fix
by Pete K. on Wednesday October 12th 2011, 14:08
On one sample spreadsheet I tested (Mac OS X, Wineskin, Wine 1.3.28) chart text was invisible. I fixed it by overriding riched20.dll to "native" instead of "wine" (see also bug 14980).
