If sufficiently desperate, I've been known to revert to using VMWare, but 
probably not worth the money unless you are planning to use it for other 
things.  ;-)

Have you considered the cross-over office thing from codeweavers?  Might be 
quite good value if you already have a licence for Office, but just don't 
want to have to boot into Windows.  (Disclaimer: I have never tried the 
software, but would like to hear from someone who has.  I would like to write 
a 'migraiton to Linux strategy' paper for work sometime, and I think 
Cross-Over Office would be worth talking about.)

Otherwise, I'd just keep trying different options... but you've already done 
that. :-|  Others may have better suggestions.
