Although a bit convoluted, you can also email the spreadsheet as text,
or use the Desktop transport to send the file to your PC via a serial
connection. The data ends up in a tabular format, with the formulas
intact, but with an additional leading tab character on each line. You
can then copy it into a text editor or word processor, strip off the
leading tab character in each line, then copy/paste into a spreadsheet
application. I have used this approach using the following applications
as tools:

PC - Word/Excel
Mac - AppleWorks 6, and also NeoOffice

I posted more detailed instructions in early April. You can check the
list archives.
