    I think you're looking for the program called wine.

    It is called "Wine".

    Depending on the version of Office it may or may not work well.

    If Wine is a problem, there are a few programs that add to or simplify Wine. PlayonLinux and Crossover Office come immediately to mind. Crossover Office has a paid support option though I have no experience with it.

    I like PlayOnLinux since that program uses installation scripts.
    1. Install PlayOnLinux, choose e.g. Ubuntu http://www.playonlinux.com/en/download.html
    2. Choose MS Office version: http://www.playonlinux.com/repository/?cat=3&type=0
    3. "Install this program"
    I hope this will help.

    These scripts can be used on other solutions & applications as well: wine question
