How the heck do you open an .ods file with Excel? I always get some lame error. Most likely from microsoft not recognizing the little guy. I can host it through Google Docs and export it to xls, but I'd like to avoid the middle man if ever possible.
I don't have Excel at home, I don't have open office at work . Some rankin.....um, files may be on a thumb drive to be worked on at multiple locations.
No problem opening xls with openoffice.
