Default ASP to Excel with formulas and different language versions


I am am trying to export a table created in HTML/Classic ASP to Excel, and with some help from the net I've managed to get almost to the end; see below.

However, I have a couple of obstacles that I need to pass.

How do I handle the Excel formulas in different languages? I am using an Excel with formulas in Swedish language, but obviously I cannot be sure my webpage users will all use the obscure Swedish Excel. Is there like a universal setup of Excel-formulas that will work in any language version? Or is there any other way around this dilemma?

Example: English formula "SUM" in Swedish is "SUMMA"

Also, every time I open up the file I get an error message saying that the file is not compatible with the file type. However the file opens fine. Would be nice to get rid of the errormessage though. How do I get rid of the error message?

<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<% option explicit
Response.ContentType = "application/"
Response.AddHeader "content-disposition", "attachment; filename=exceltest.xls"
TD.excel_tabletop {
font-weight : bold;}

TD.excel_tablenormal {
font-weight : normal;
mso-number-format : 0\.0;}

TD.excel_tablebottom {
font-weight : bold;
mso-number-format : 0\.0;}
