In LibreOffice Writer, how to insert a field of a random integer in
the range 5 to 20? This random integer changes every time I open the document.
o In a spreadsheet document, enter =INT(RAND()*16)+5 in a cell.
o Save the document.
o In your text (Writer) document, go to Insert | Object > | OLE Object... .
o Select "Create from file".
o Tick "Link to file".
o Click Search... and browse to and open your spreadsheet file.
o Position and resize the inserted item as necessary.
o Each time you open the text document, accept the offer to "Update
all links?". Provided the spreadsheet file is closed, the formula
will be recalculated each time.
An alternative is considering whether to construct your entire text
document in the form of a spreadsheet.
I trust this helps.
