If you encountered Excel upon the days, the screenshot below will
look familiar to you. Open Office spreadsheet is very much like the
Excel application, both in looks and functionality. This might help
you get the basic functions and commands faster. In this article I
will present the Open Office spreadsheet application.
In the highlighted area you see the drop down menu's you will find
in any spreadsheet.
File - let you open/close, print, export, import and save a
Edit - basic edit functions of a document.
View - let you edit the user interface, toolbars and
Insert - goes without saying, let you insert whatever you might
need (picture, footer, etc).
Format - lets you format text.
Tools - tools which help you edit the document, such as a nifty
Window - new/close and open a window.
Help - help. :)
Your 2 basic toolbars. Hover your mouse pointer over the button to
get exstensive information about each and every button. I figure if
you have some experience with spreadsheets most of these buttons
will be familiar to you.
This drop down meny let you chose last opened files quick and easy,
a very nifty function by Open Office.
Your standard font editors, not much to say, click on the pointers
in each drop down window to see what options you got.
Shown above you see the Open Office spreadsheet formula line.
This is the left hand menu in the spreadsheet, another nice
function made by Open Office. To get more info on the buttons just
hover you mouse pointer above the button you want to know more
