Which versions of Excel and SPSS are you using? I use SPSS version 8.02 and
Excel versions 97 (service release 2) and Excel 2000.
I too have been doing the SPSS>Excel>Word>Exec>etc. thing for the last
decade in order to do more useful write-ups of work, and have no problems at
all with notation, etc.. (Although it would be nice to be able to run
syntax directly from Excel...)

I do the SPSS->Excel->word processor waltz when I am doing a write-up.
WordPerfect can read old Excel spreadsheets, so I save them in Excel
and insert them in WP.
Does anyone still have problems with the scientific notation in Excel?
I found that Excel doesn't automatically replace notation numbers with
My workaround: Do a find and replace on "E" -- after Excel performs
this operation, the numbers convert to regular decimal.
Just thought I'd share my piece.
