      brymda It looks and feels very similar to Microsoft Office Excel, but it's free, opensource, it has horizontal scrolling, feels more stable, UI a bit less polished, but it's full featured and it was super easy to migrate from Excel to Libre Calc, I'm happy that there is such a great alternative. There's possibility to open all Excel spreadsheets in Libre Calc and save Libre Cals spreadsheets in Excel format, so it's fully compatible, which is a great plus!

      The only stable alternative to Excel, when you need to edit small databases : add records, copy, paste, without keeping text format, etc.
