Frankly, I keep running into too many anomalies in LibreOffice vs. MS

My solution in my office is to remote desktop into a corp. terminal server
and run office there. I know that is not a great "linux" solution, but it
works for me.

fyi: I also have issues the other way around. I have one app I run that
has a WebUI interface.

It produces a nice little html table of results that I need to send to my
clients. I can copy/paste that from firefox to oocalc with no issue, and
the table layout is very nicely maintained with rows and columns.

Not true with Excel.

Another example, with gmail and html based emails, I can copy / paste a
simple table from oocalc to firefox and have a nice looking email with a
table in it.

Again, not true with Excel.

So I find I need oocalc routinely as well as MSO.
