Hi :)
MS Office 2010 and earlier used a bad implementation of an old version of the ODF formats which 
meant that Word/Writer was fine but Calc/Excel lost all the formulas and just gave fixed values 
instead.  They were able to give a reasonable excuse for shunning the ODF 1.2 that everyone else 
was using quite happily at the time.  

MSO 2013 and 365 now uses the same ODF as everyone else since ODF 1.2 finally got officially 
released a couple of years previous to that.  Plus they fixed their implementation so it now  
allows formulas in spreadsheets.  
Regards from
Tom :)

Certainly in Office 2010 you have the option to set ODF as the default
document type, and I believe that in Office 2013/365 they've fixed the
ODS>Excel "bug" of displaying values instead of formulae..
