Selected Test Results

What works

­* Basic spreadsheet stuff
* Tested mostly with a travel expenditure form from an uncle's workplace, locked fields/formulas/formatting all looked good.
* Conditional formatt­ing
* Basic graph usage
* Goal seek
* Printing
* Basic picture usage (insertion, moving, scaling, cropping, rotation, transparency)
* Data lists (only tested creation, filtering, and sorting)
* Window splitting/freezing
* Locked cells
* Various fonts and formattings
* Borders
* Rotated cells
* Web page preview (though it opened in Geany, not Chrome or even wine's imitation IE)

What does not

­* VBA macros didn't want to run, they threw some error. Editing/recording them works though.
* Picture effects don't do anything, i.e. contrast/grayscale
* Some conditional formatting, i.e. conditional font families (the input to selec­t the font was disabled)

Workarounds

What was not tested

­* Clipart
* HTML scraping
* Complicated formulas
* Anything other than a basic line graph
* A lot of other things. Excel has too many features.­

HowTo / Notes

Native alternatives for non-windows platforms
There are some good alternatives to this application that might exist for your platform. You'll find a list on the main page of this application.
HOWTO

(Updated 2012-07-13)

Follow the instructions in the Microsoft Office (installer only) entry for installing. After installing:

  • To use the thesaurus, set riched20 to native. 
  • Starting with ­1.1.38, set gdiplus to­ native, builtin. This override is not needed for earlier versions, as prior to 1.1.38 the default behavior was to favor gdiplus that was installed ­by the app itself. ­ ­ If using native gdiplus causes Excel­ to crash, the most likely cause is nonconformant ttf fonts installed on your system. (Ubuntu in particular is known to be afflicted.) Run winetricks fontfix to fix this.

It is not necessary to install either of these dlls, as O­ffice installs its own version. Do not set these overrides globally unless Office is installed in a separate wineprefix.
