    Hello, I would like a very simple spreadsheet application.

    I have tried:
    Microsoft Excel
    File Maker Pro
    Tables 1.3 (Which won't run on my MacBook Pro)
    Numbers
    NeoOffice

    Any other suggestions

    Well you have been through all the ones i would've suggested. What exactly are you looking for/what was wrong with the ones you tried (missing features etc.)

    Why don't you tell us the problems you had with the listed apps to help us find an app that suits your needs :)

    BTW, when you say OpenOffice, did you mean NeoOffice (the mac port), if not try it, as there is no pesky X11...

    I really just want a light spreadsheet, I need very little ability for formula's and what not. I was just wondering if there was a lighter one, I thought that Tables would be an answer but it crashes upon opening.

    And yes, it was NeoOffice.

    I tried Mesa, but the issue with both it and Numbers is I can't freeze panes.

    My two requirements:
    Freezing Panes
    Multiple Spreadsheets or tabs
