Spread32 can be downloaded from: https://archive.org/details/spread-32-1.18

BTW, it is a very nice little app that among other nice features saves the work to an .xls file .

@NunoSilva: Please be so kind as to provide this (and similar suggestions) at the forum, where they'll get the attention they deserve. Thank you.

There is also CellPro
a spreadsheet somewhere between Spread32 and Gnumeric.
To make it portable just have an empty "portable.flag" file into its folder.

I've been using Spread32 version 1.18 for over ten years! Where have any of you been? Using M$ Excel or OpenOffice Calc?

Hey guys ;) You can remove the nag screen with Resource Hacker , look for the Dialog section, right click on dialog 1290 and remove, save your exe and that's it ! You have your updated version of Spread32 without nagscreen :)
