Hello,

I've recently installed excel 2007 on my computer and i have a worksheet that was originally created with openoffice calc. I want to swap this over to excel 2007 now as i find it easier to use.

But i have tried 'open with-excel' and it says [not responding] at the top of the page everytime i try and the only way to close it is to take the battery out of the laptop as task manager doesn't work.

The calc worksheet is full of formulas and 1 macro so i don't know if this is an issue or not. Is there a program or something i can implement to make the transition succesful? And will the openoffice formulas be converted successfully if i do?

Thanks

Have you considered to save your file from OpenOffice as .xls? Or maybe install ods plugin in Excel.
