Corel Quattro Pro is a spreadsheet application that is available as part of the WordPerfect Office suite. When it was first released for DOS in 1988, Quattro's biggest competition was Lotus 1-2-3. The name "Quattro" came from the Italian word for "4," implying that Quattro would surpass Lotus 1-2-3.

Quattro Pro is very similar to Microsoft Excel in the way it looks, feels, and functions. There is a formula bar where you can write formulas that will be used in cells. There are also formatting options such as font, cell color, borders, and size. Quattro Pro can open many of the formats that Excel can as well.

If you are trying to decide between Microsoft Office and Corel WordPerfect Office, Quattro Pro should not sway your judgement in either direction due to its similarity with Excel. The deciding factor between the two office productivity suites is your preference between Microsoft Word and Corel WordPerfect.
