Why  not use Calc of OpenOffice 2? I have not experienced a great deal  of
OpenOffice 2 yet, but I have some experience handling other people's Excel
files  in OpenOffice 1. Everything can be imported flawlessly (even in the
antiquated  version  1). This includes 3-D figures, complex  formulae  and
more.  I  am also very impressed with the ability of OpenOffice 1 to  open
PowerPoint presentations that incorporate Office 2003 elements.

SuSE  9.3 and later versions come with OpenOffice 2 albeit a beta  version
at times.

Hope it helps and good luck,
