She saw how quickly I did the work in Calc and told me that every time
she tried to do the same with MSO, she could not get it to work
properly, since Excel insisted it be two page wide.

She was amazed how easy it is to do the work in Calc, over Excel.  I did
not have the heart to tell her that I did it in Writer instead due to
the combination of text and tables.  It would have been worse in Word if
she tried that.

In all fairness there is a huge difference betwen using a word processor and a 
spreadsheet for many similar tasks. The table function in writer can resemble a 
spreadsheet, but ,as  your client mentioned, the spreadsheet has a different view 
(sheets) than the one page view of a word processor. 

I do the same, use writer & tables instead of a spreadsheet for my business forms, 
faster, easier, better formatting options.

Good to promote free software, I have stopped promoting here though, prefer 
attraction :-)
