Honestly, .7z is so superior and my bandwidth so low I've considered ditching the .zip version altogether.

And the Open Office version is, literally, just me opening the Excel version within Open Office and selecting Save As... ODF Spreadsheet. Which you could quite easily do yourself by downloading the Excel version.

The main reason I supply the Ooo version is because I like to do some testing of the changes I've made in Open Office, since I've come across a few bugs in the Excel to Open Office conversion routines built into Open Office. In fact, pretty much all of the work I had to do to make the sheet Ooo friendly was to work around various bugs in the conversion routines.

Unless, of course, he doesn't have Excel, which would be why he wants to use the Open Office version:p

You don't need Excel to open the Excel version within Open Office. Open Office can open most Excel spreadsheets, including this one. As I said, my entire "creation" process for the Open Office version consists of me opening the Excel version within Ooo and then hitting Save As... ODF Spreadsheet. Then I check to see if I broke anything, and if I did I go back to Excel, fix it, and open it up in Ooo again.

Unfortunately, my version of OO (3.1) crashed whenever I tried to open the .xls, which is why I was asking for the .ods format in an archive format I can actually open on my linux box.

Ah - for some reason I read that as you went into Excel and saved it as an Open Office Document, not doing it in Open Office. Doh.

That's odd; it works perfectly fine in Ooo v3.1 for Windows.

Anyway, I've now posted the Ooo version in .zip format.

Wouldn't that make MS Office become freeware?

Heh. No, it would just mean that Office would have to acknowledge Open Office's existence, which is Never Going To Happen. @:-)

I thought the OO formats were GPL, so anything opening them must be GPL.
