If that's not it... FWIW, I'd try posting to an open-office list. This
is a kde list and the products aren't related (the kde product used for
excel spread-sheets would be kspread, part of koffice), so it's unlikely
you'll find the open-office expertise here that you'd find on the open-
office lists. It's easy enough to get confused as to where to ask,
sometimes, so no big deal there, just pointing out that the odds of
getting help for open-office will be higher on an open-office list.
Or... you can try koffice. =:^)
