If it's in a relatively simple format, you could parse it yourself.

True, but I really would love to be able to simply open it, edit it,
and pass it on.

What I did to "solve" it was to send it to someone that had Microsoft
Excel who then converted the file to the binary Excel file format that
I then could open with Gnumeric.

Basically, I was hoping someone had a magical solution (like
installing another package, ticking a configuration option, or
something) so I wouldn't have to rely on someone that had Excel (nor
parsing it myself).

Is there a file format converter or something?
