Pros
I've been using Calc for over 10 years and it has worked well for the entire time. I love that the help documentation is actually useful, without relying on digging though sketchy support forums.
It is very good for making calculations quickly. It opens in an instant and it's not heavy at all and that's a very important thing.
Due to its open source nature and popularity, this is a good software to start using if you're starting off a small company or trying to run a business with a small team.
Cons
It is a little frustrating that I cannot copy-paste the spreadsheet content into Google Spreadsheets without losing formulas. Also the formatting is usually lost.
The worst things about this software are that it is poorly laid out and is poorly compatible with Excel.
Xslx files, even if it could open them, which was a handicap and concerned me that our reputation would be affected because it appeared we were using outdated software if only able to export as.

Free Spreadsheets with a lot of potential

Reviewed 4 months ago

Used in Linux operating systems (such as Ubuntu) and in the most recent versions of Windows. Very good alternative to the Microsoft Office suite,

Pros

It meets our current needs in the company in terms of writing documents and creating and presenting reports in spreadsheets and because it is open source you can use it without restriction allowing you to save money on the purchase of licenses; its key point is that it is multiplatform and besides being lightweight you can use it without consuming many resources.

Cons

When saving you have to use the MS Office format to be able to share a document, the user interface needs a good update as it is not as striking, it does not have the option to save to the cloud as MS Office does, it lacks integration with the MS Office suite so that when you migrate a document it does not lose any functionality.

OpenOffice Calc - The Best Features of Excel - Without the Cost!

Reviewed 5 years ago

Using OpenOffice Calc has been a very good experience overall. Though the interface is a bit different than Microsoft Excel, it is easy to learn, and the price is right.

Pros

File type compatibility, cost (free), advanced features comparable to Excel, ability to save files to Microsoft native formats such as PPT and PPTX.

Cons

Lack of templates compared to Excel, and the interface is bit less "polished" than what you would fine in Microsoft Excel; lack of export cross-support from accounting software

Was the go-to spreadsheet app, but ceased being developed and become unstable

Reviewed 6 years ago

OpenOffice Calc helped us avoid spending on purchasing commercial software for which this was a suitable replacement for quite some time.

Pros

Calc has been great for importing various file formats and can also handle importing CSVs in a very flexible manner. It was easy to use and the forums often got me out of trouble when seeking support or a how-to guide.

Cons

Instability of the desktop app cost us a lot of time and eventually forced us to move away from it. All the while, it wasn't able to export .xslx files, even if it could open them, which was a handicap and concerned me that our reputation would be affected because it appeared we were using outdated software if only able to export as .xls.

Same as Excel but free

Reviewed 3 years ago

Great, switched once and still using it. Nice functionality and compatibility.

Pros

I am using Open Office spreadsheets daily. I like that it has almost exactly the same functionality as Microsoft Excel, but is a free product. I started using it back in 2009 when switching from Windows to Linux and continue using to this day, now on Mac. It is really nice that the content can be exported in XLS format for those using more traditional products.

Cons

It is a little frustrating that I cannot copy-paste the spreadsheet content into Google Spreadsheets without losing formulas. Also the formatting is usually lost. I use Google Spreadsheets to share the numbers with my colleagues and prospective clients.

Does everything Excel does

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use this daily in my business by creating spreadsheets and other forms like timesheets, invoices, purchase orders...

Pros

It's free. I use it to replace Microsoft Excel and I have not run into anything yet that I can't do. However I only use it for time sheets, invoices, purchase orders and estimates with auto calculations.

Cons

Sometimes it can be hard to find out how to do something I want, but with a little perseverance I can usually find the answer.
