Open Microsoft Office Document in Wine Word, Excel; doc, xls; Open With

Create a new file.
gedit ~/.wine/EXCEL
Paste this script:
#!/bin/sh
QUICKPARLOCATION="C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Office\\Office12\\EXCEL.EXE"
PARAM=`winepath -w "$*"`
wine "$QUICKPARLOCATION" "$PARAM"
exit 0
Save the file. Make it executable:
chmod +x ~/.wine/EXCEL
In Nautilus, right click on an xls document (for example, myfile.xls) and select Properties. Select the "Open With" tab and "Add" a custom command:
/home/YOURUSER/.wine/EXCEL
