This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Don't understand the downvotes, esp. since the question came from StackOverflow. However ... @abk you'll probably get better answers here if you clarify the problem you're trying to solve (reading and/or editing an excel file). Installing Open Office is probably not the only possible solution to your problem. –  Amanda May 10 '11 at 16:51

There is currently no available port of OpenOffice.org or LibreOffice for Android. Android is very different from a traditional Linux distribution, so code written for one will not simply run on the other, despite the fact that they share some facets like a kernel.

There has been some work toward an Android version of LibreOffice, but it is not ready to be released yet. Ars Technica reported about a demo of the initial prototype.

There are, however, many other apps which will allow you to open and/or edit .xls files.

This answer is incredibly misleading. OpenOffice.org is not available for Android. There is an app called OpenOffice Document reader, but this is, again, not OpenOffice.org itself. It's just a 3rd party app designed to read .odt and .ods files. It even states in the description that it doesn't support Microsoft Office formats! –  eldarerathis May 10 '11 at 13:10
