The function provides a simple method with which one can load the contents of open document spreadsheets into MATLAB. Allowing users to directly import files created by Open Office into MATLAB.

The function has not undergone rigorous testing, but it has worked for all of my needs. Also, I think a similar method may be implemented to allow one to export data from MATLAB into open document spreadsheets.
