Does anyone know how it complies with VisualBasic? I use OpenOffice.org all the time, but people who write VisualBasic macros in their Excel worksheets end up sending me things I can't use. Sometimes I can't use it even on the Macintosh version of Microsoft Office.

I use 'simple' vb macros and it has worked fine with them. I'm not an accountant/banker (although few are this week than last :-p)so cannot speak on heavily complex systems. For my needs, it works without issue

http://go-oo.org/ is supposed to have better VB compatibility. Never tried it myself.
