Embedded Excel replacement


Hi All,
I'm looking for a Win 32 and Linux open source spreadsheet component that can be called by another piece of software. Some basic macro scripting and charting are important.

First let me say, OpenOffice will not do. There is no way, according to their documentation, to separate the various components. Gnumeric has no Win 32 version.

I am trying to embed a spreadsheet into a Labview application. When a user opens a window the vi (virtual instrument) calls the spreadsheet and displays it. The user can then modify the data and save the spreadsheet. Right now I am using Labview tables but they are a poor substitute for a real spreadsheet. I need the ability for the user to, for example, select a row or column or arbitrary selection of cells and then be able to mathematically modify those cells. Like multiply all selected cells by 5% or whatever. Simple stuff.

It is unfeasible for me to ask my end users to install the entire bulk of OpenOffice just for the spreadsheet component.

How about Softmakers 'Planmaker' :
A standalone executable : 'planmaker' ( 6.2 MB )

http://www.downloadsquad.com/2008/10...ows-and-linux/
" SoftMaker releases free office apps for Windows and Linux "

http://www.softmaker.com/english/ofldemo_en.htm
... It's not free software, and the newest version will cost.

Was just informed that Gnumeric does indeed have a win 32 build. Don't know yet if I can use it but I hate to spread untrue info. It would be great as long as it doesn't require stuff like installing the complete gtk+ packages. I'll post results on this thread.

Well then, Planmaker has no dependencies
neither for Linux or Windows.
