I have Office XP installed in a Windows 98 bottle (it's set as the default bottle). I'm working on installing another app in a Windows XP bottle. The app in the XP bottle has an option to send data to Excel. Any chance of that working?
More than likely it would not work. Generally bottles do not communicate with each other or recognize that other bottles exist. Usually this is a positive point (in that, if something happens like a virus or a corrupted install only one bottle is damaged) but in some cases is not desired. At this time the best work around is to save the data you would like in Excel to your desktop and then open it into Excel manually.

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
