I would like to take something of a straw poll, if that's ok.  I simply
want to know whether any of you have shared documents using the ODF format
with MS Office users (preferably in a business environment), and what was
the reaction?  What problems

I am not seeking advice on how to share documents with MS Office users.
 Nor am I interested in an in-depth analysis of why one might experience
problems in sharing such documents.  I simply want to know your experience.

I have been sharing a simple spreadsheet document between LO (at home) and
MSO (at work) in the OD format.  The experience has been interesting on the
MS Office side of it.  I get error messages (that don't seem to be real
errors), and if I choose the "repair" option, it claims to fix the errors,
and even gives me a link to click to see the list of alleged corrections.
 The list is just a near-empty XML document.  And to save a document in ODF
raises a warning *every single time*, with no opportunity to say "stop
warning me".

I know most of us still have to deal with both suites.  I just wonder if
anyone else (how many???) has experienced similar issues.
