I realize I am a bit late in reviewing this thread. However, here's a

http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_books/office_guides/microsoft_office_to_openoffice_migration/index.html

http://www.linuxtopia.org/online_books/office_guides/microsoft_office_to_openoffice_migration/openoffice_migration_Keyboard_shortcuts_0606MG-DifferencesInUseCalcExcel.html
