I use the next code to read an array from file:
a=xlsread(data.xls)
It works out pretty well at my home computer. But at my workstation the next error reveals:
What's wrong with the openoffice? Is there any other way to fix this problem, except installing Excel?

xlsread() never invokes OpenOffice
If you are using one of the newer MATLAB (R2014a, perhaps even a bit earlier) then the 'basic' mode is enough to be able to read .xls files, if I recall correctly.
