Version 97 of this popular office spreadsheet application.
Math, All of it.
Saving And Loading Spreadsheets
Turning On The Flight Simulator
Having Multiple Spreadsheets Open
What does not
Visual Basic Editor (I blame the installer not being able to register a few DLL's)
Office Assistant (Acts like the act files where removed)
The Flight Simulator is a little jacked up, it is stuck in a circle, colors are wrong and there is a big line though the screen. On Pressing escape it changes your resolution to a very small number.
What was not tested
Some of the chart wizard objects, all of them should work, however.
First Time Ran you need to run with /e, to do this go to a terminal and type the fallowing: wine cmd C: cd "Program Files (x86)" cd "Microsoft Office" cd Office excel.exe /e After that first run it can be started as normal, as long as you put in your name and initials. Also due to the installer crashing it is recommended that you add a shourtcut or script to excel.exe, as one is never made.

Ok, go to any terminal of your choice, make sure you are logged in as you, and that wine is in your path. On Ubuntu all this is done for you.
You may need to replace some of the path names with the ones you entered during Excel/Office 97 installation. If you didn't change them, you can safely type all these commands word-for-word.
Type The Fallowing Commands:
And then put in your name and initials, press OK, and your done! You don't need to do this again every time you open Excel, only the first to enter your name and initials.
Installing a service release for older versions of Office (Pre-2003) are not essential but are there if you need them.
Official details on Service Release 1 can be found Here.
You need to install this before Service Release 2(b) if you are going to do so.
