The report looks similar in Excel 2010 (Win), and Libre Office 4.3 (Mac).
Mac Preview didn't render any of the totals.

I had to reduce the font size in Libre Office to have a similar appearance,
otherwise the totals were shown as ####.
There was one difference

And lastly, the sample executable should either show progress, or use a
busy cursor when generating the report.

VERY NICELY DONE!!  This library could be quite useful in business apps!

> Dear LiveCode Users,
> We are working on a new Library capable to read / write / update xlsx
> files without the help of MS Excel.
> The Library is dealing natively with LiveCode (and the help of revXML
> and revZip) with the Office Open XML format.
> We are actually in alpha version and we have prepared a small
> application for validating our capability to generate xlsx files
> readable by every solution capable of opening an xlsx file: MS Excel
> standalone or online, OpenOffice, LibreOffice, Google Sheets, etc
> For extending our tests to different environments and applications we
> are looking for some testers ready to help:
> - by playing with our "Salestore report generator" application. Few
> clicks are required for preparing the report + 30 secs to 1 minute,
> the time for the Lib to create a report of about 700 lines * 8 columns
> with styles and formulae.
> - opening the generated xlsx file with the solution they have.
> - reporting the result of their tests by dropping me a small note.
> We have prepared different versions of our test application: linux,
> mac and windows.
> All the versions are available by following this link:
