OnDemand uses OpenOffice when exporting, viewing, or saving data. OpenOffice is an open source office suite for word processing, spreadsheets, and other applications. If you have a licensed copy of Microsoft® Office installed on your personal computer, you can still save files that you export from OnDemand to your personal computer, and open them locally using the Microsoft Office Suite.

OpenOffice Calc is the equivalent of Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice Writer is the equivalent of Microsoft Word. View the OpenOffice user guides and tutorials.
