I wounder if you have considered PlanMaker from SoftMaker, which has a 
free for non-commercial use version, and is quite compatible with the 
Microsoft product. It
comes in a native Linux version, as part of an office suite--SoftMaker 
Office. Or even buy the commercial product--it's less than $100--and the 
German makers are good
at answering emailed questions if you run into trouble. Unfortunately, I 
don't write spread-sheets, so I have no idea if it would solve your 
problem, but you might write
them and ask.  (I have to say that I think spread-sheets are the most 
clumsy way to do math that I have ever encountered!)
