Best program for editing xls files
Yes, I know it's probably excel but is there a free one for Mac that won't pork things too bad? I have libre office but I've seen what it can do to word docs and it's not pretty.
Speed doesn't kill, rapidly becoming stationary is the problem

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.

Never had any issues working with an XLS file in LibreOffice. Just make sure you are running the latest version. Latest version that you can run on your Mac that is.

Agreed... I have been using Numbers, on the Mac to adjust spreadsheets from excel for a while now. Works well for me. And free... with a new Mac, at least...

I use open office on my mac at work, and at home now that I think about it. XLS are fine. Docs are garbage, messes them up something fierce. I wish it had a delete duplicates feature though, too many mailing lists that I have to teamviewer into a PC in our shop to use its old M$ Excel. :-\
