I have a spreadsheet writting in MS Excel, an .xls document, which contains macros. I'm having a problem finding a program what will allow me to open the document and the macros work.
I tried opening the document in LibreOffice and the macros won't work even though I went to Tools -> Options -> Load/Save -> VBA Properties -> and made sure Load Basic Code and Executable Code were both checked. I even went to Tools -> Options -> Security -> Macro Security -> and set it to Low. I converted the .xls document to a LibreOffice document and LibreOffice still won't run the macros.
I tried Gnumeric. Some of the macros seemed to work in Gnumeric but most of them didn't.
I installed Calligra and tried opening it with Sheets, but Calligra just freezes and I have to force quit out of it.
I do not have Windows, I do not own MS Office and have no means or desire to buy either one.
So, what other options are there left for me? I have been searching around Google/Bing but haven't found a solution yet. any thoughts or ideas? i'm running Xubuntu 12.04 64-bit. Thank you.
