The last poster whines about clients owning Office. Thats why its our job to educate them. Tell them "I understand you own serveral licenses of Office, to support the kind of software you want us to write we need to upgrade it to OpenOffice. The best thing is that it won't cost you anything." By doing this you move your client to a better piece of software that frees them from paying for license upgrades every 2 years. Next, you do your part to end these formats. See this: for more information on how you can help. Write the authors of this article and of the POI library and explain to them how misguided they are.
