Excel integration

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 129.210.210.141] on September 11, 2007 10:23 PM
Something that I used to love about word (but don't use any more as I am an OOo user) was the integration with Excel. Tables are terrible in word, but as of 2003 (i believe) you can embed an excel spreadsheet in a word document and actually have a useful table. I haven't seen that OOo writer has the same functionality with Calc. My hope is that someone will correct me and then I will be very happy, but otherwise I'd say Word wins on tables.

Also, I'm waiting for the day when KOffice overtakes all offerings from Microsoft and Adobe (KOffice word, spreadsheet, krita, karbon14 over MS Word, excel, adobe photoshop, and illustrator). But that day is far away : (
