Microsoft Office up through version 2010 works easily on Linux with WINE >= 1.4. This requires WINE to be in Windows XP mode, which is the default for WINE 1.x.
sudo apt install wine
configure a separate Wineprefix for Office and run the Office installer
WINEPREFIX=~/.wineoffice WINEARCH=win32 SetupOffice.exe
after installing Office, one-time configuration
Now all the Office 2010 programs should run fine.
You can also run Microsoft Office from the Terminal.
