Just as the title and description, I wish I could find some alternative spreadsheet program like Excel, but portable. I already tried Gnumeric and I do not like it; in fact the formulas feature did not work properly, but the cheapy spreadsheet program that comes with MS Works does work right. Hopefully there is some alternative with more and better features than the one in MS Works and is portable, too.

Google docs? Or do you have an aversion to cloud based apps? LibreOffice portable has a spread sheet app.

abauw,

I do not have Excel and I do not know how to turn something like it into a portable version. Along with my not having Excel, I do not have any copy of Microsoft Office installed and registered, and because of its very high price, I will not accept MS Office (unless I find a source at a much, much lower price).

What about OpenOffice? They have a spreadsheet utility in their suite and it's FREE.

Both Open Office and Libre Office have portable versions. Libre Office is made and developed by many of the same developers who created Open Office. But they disagreed with the direction that Oracle wanted to take it when they acquired the organization. So they created Libre Office to sustain the same spirit of opensource office applications.

They can both be found here: http://portableapps.com/apps
