Does Revolve work with Open Office?

It's a free office platform.


Open Office is big among the Linux types. In principal, Revolve users should be able to open any of the Excel spreadsheets or .csv files produced (MARS, worksheet export, etc.) with open office.

Though the reports created for Access could be more of a problem: The exported reports database has a lot of Basic code in the background, and not sure whether Open Office would handle that. On the other hand, emphasis on the reports database has decreased, so it may not matter.

Revolve wouldn't be able to launch an open office application in the way that it currently launches Excel or Access after an export, but that may not matter either, provided Open Office can open the files once they're created.
