Excel Alternatives Compared

Welcome to the definitive source for selecting the best alternatives to Microsoft Excel. We’ve performed comprehensive research to identify all possible 37 alternatives and looked at 43 features for each. Our research analysts have collected more than 500 data points, over 1500 feature points, which adds up to over 2100 total points researched.

In our research, we’ve included Excel alternatives that are able to do most common computational, database and reporting, and basic automation functions that are regularly being utilized for home, office, and semi-enterprise institutions/companies. For example, a spreadsheet program specifically designed for accounting or investment banking (and not easily adaptable to other general use cases) would not be included.

Spreadsheets are used by many businesses and individuals today. Some are finding problems with Excel such as: conversion issues, errors with large strings, numerical precision issues and other quirks. Perhaps you don't need all the functions that Excel provides. (There's less that can go wrong with a simpler spreadsheet.) Whatever your reason for looking elsewhere, our comprehensive research can help.

Frequently, with spreadsheets, there is a need to graphically represent various data. If this interests you, check out: Data Visualization Tools.

We reached out to a cohort of industry experts to get some initial feedback on what features are most important in a spreadsheet tool. We’ve ranked the top ten tools in our research according to their responses. This top ten list is continually updated as we get more feedback. But we highly suggest you participate in our custom Excel alternatives survey so you can layer in your own importance prioritization for each feature:






Top Ten
Excel Alternative Platform
as of April 2021

  1. Apache OpenOffice Calc 4
  2. LibreOffice Calc 7
  3. OnlyOffice Spreadsheet
  4. Excel for the Web
  5. Zoho Sheet
  6. Numbers for Mac
  7. Google Spreadsheet
  8. Smartsheet
  9. Gnumeric 1.12
  10. GrapeCity Spread

Note: If we mark a specific solution as not having a particular feature, that only means we did not see that feature advertised in their public marketing content. We focus almost exclusively on publicly verifiable facts in our research.

Spreadsheet Feature Strength is a number that was calculated by looking at how many features each tool had, and the relative, subjective importance of each feature. You’ll definitely want to take our survey to layer in your own feature importance scoring before deciding on a solution.

Likewise, Spreadsheet Business Strength is a number that was derived from certain business-related qualities of each company, and our own (subjective) scoring of the importance of those qualities. There too, you’ll want to give your own importance rating to derive your own, custom scatter plot:

Of special importance is the field titled, Top Five Other Excel Alternatives with Most Similar Features, in Order. For each tool, we looked at the feature sets of competitors to come up with their top closest competitors from a data-driven, feature-focused perspective.

You can also click here to jump straight to the list of features that we’ve uncovered for each spreadsheet.

We built a custom framework around this data, so it is almost trivial for us to add, remove, or update the data as spreadsheet tools change over time. If you see anything that is missing or incorrect, please let us know in the comments below.

Click on each of these to expand the ordered list:





We hope this publication will save you dozens of hours of research in your quest for the alternative spreadsheet that serves you best. Bookmark this page, and be sure to share it with your colleagues. What other tools or features have we missed? Please engage with us in the comments below. We love your feedback!
