Re: Microsoft Does It Again




A quick Google search for 'convert ooxml to tsv' yields several results; this one looks interesting:

Assuming it works, you should then be able to import the TSV file into Libre Office Calc.

I'm not trying to start a flame war or bash Microsoft (let's fact it, they don't pay attention), but I have a problem with an Excel file.

For reasons unbeknownst to me, somehow it got saved as an Excel OOXML file.  I find that i don't have a Linux app that seems to able to open the file.  Contacting Microsoft Customer Service resulted in instructions to upgrade Excel to the current version.  THere is no way that I will spend the money to implement that suggestion.

Is there a Linux application that will allow me to recover the contents of the file?
