I'm working on forms that calculates child support. In Wordperfect I was
able to lay it out in tables and use the table functions to do the
calculations. In Writer the table functions are very limited. For example
it doesn't have a function that tells when a cell is blank or one to look up
an entry in a table.
All those functions are in Calc. In order to be able to use the formatting
from Writer it's necessary to link data from my Writer table cells to Calc
and then link it back into Writer. This is quite a headache. In order to
simplify this I tried embedding the spreadsheet into the Writer document as
an OLE object with DDE links inside it to table cells in the Writer
document. I need the spreadsheet to update automatically when data in the
table cells change. To date I've had poor results being able to do this.
I suppose I could write the forms in Calc, but I'm not nearly as familiar
with document formatting for Calc as I am with Writer. I believe the
learning curve would be steep.
Can you suggest how I can make these forms work?
