    I use Open to work with .xls files (excel)
    I also have Office 2008:mac

    if you can get Office for $10 go for it
    if you had to pay retail, OpenOffice is a better option

    even if you got both for free (Open is free), I still use Open, simply because I get tired of the errors Office gives me regarding Macros, and it doesn't run the scripts properly I have in my payroll spreadsheet
