I like scalc. It lets me work on Excel at work, email to myself at home, make modifications in scalc, save as excel file and email back to work with no loss iin formatting. By, the way, I use Excel for Mac at work - go figure.

On my Zaurus, I've been using the text mode spread sheet "slsc". It's a s-lang remake of a program called "sc"(spreadsheet calculator). It's not real great, but it's small and gets the job done... usually.
