One comment to add:
When using Excel (or OpenOffice-Calc) together with Notetab its very
handy to copy a section from a spreadsheet displayed in Excel and then
paste in Notetab - it comes in with TAB separators - and then manipulate
with either Find/Replace from the dialog or use purpose written clips ,
copy again and paste back at the same (or different) location in Excel.
