I don't use windows or any of it's byproducts, so this is just a guess,
but doesn't Excel export to comma-separated list?

If Excel does export/import comma-separated list, you have quite a
choice. Gnumeric would be one way.
P.S.: Yes, I know that most things that are done with Excel or something
similar go beyond what a comma-separated list can represent. At least,
that's what I'd assume.
