Mint17 - Wine and winetricks to Open Excel

Hi

Firstly how do I find the version number for wine?

Next, just downloaded winetricks.

I have downloaded MS Excel 2013 .exe file and want to install with winetricks. When a couple of steps in,(after select ‘wine prefix’ and then’ browse files) and select the .exe file from the’ browse’ folder the linux window does not offer an option to select for winetricks, and I can go no further.

Should I be doing something slightly different to select the .exe

Thanks
