That would be great. Thanks!

Ok, I will check it out and eventually add. 

And yes, Mario, you can import the .txt output into an OO spreadsheet,
but... a) you end up with a lot of unwanted characters in many cells
that you need to clean up, and b) because of the way the txt file is
formated, the cells in the row containing totals are usually shifted
left by one column (at least in the case of results for frequencies and
correlations that I was using). You have to fix that manually which
increases a chance of introducing an error and is also time consuming.

that's why I would find the direct output into odf or xls to be a great
