Known. MS-Excel 2010 did not implement the formula part, to their
"excuse" as it wasn't specified with ODF 1.0 (ISO/IEC 26300:2006) and
they purposely implemented only what was specified in the ISO standard.
However, with Excel 2013 they implemented OpenFormula of ODF 1.2, so if
you want ODF spreadsheet interoperability you need MS-Excel 2013.
