running excel inside wine


I have several spreadsheets compiled using excel in office97. These contain a lot of VB macros which get destroyed if opened and saved in libreOffice Calc. I tried to open these by running excel with wine but get "vbaen32.olb missing or damaged. Please run set up to install it" error although these run happily in windows xp. Any suggestions?

According to the wine Application Database entry for Excel from Office 97 macros do not work correctly in Wine, so your best bet would be tu run it on Windows.

Crossover for linux from http://www.codeweavers.com/ is what you are looking for i belive.
Or try a copy in openoffice or staroffice.
