I have to write a boringly long table with 4 items in each line
(name, date of birth, etc).
I then have to return the document in MS .doc format
as far as I can see.
(There is a model response which is in .doc format.)
I'd like to write this in Linux if possible.
What is the simplest way of doing this?
Could I produce a file in Linux which could be imported by Excel,
and then output as a .doc file?
I'm not sure if OpenOffice works on my laptop.
I just tried it, and I think it died.
So if there is an alternative (gnumeric?) that might be better.
I'm running FC3-test2, which might explain why OO didn't work.
