I created a Libre Office Calc spreadsheet with a table like this:
where the 2nd column formula are defined like this:
Incidentally, these formulae may not do exactly what you want.
RAND()*89 gives a number in the range 0 to 89 and when you ROUND it
you get an integer in the range 0 to 89, but zero and 89 are only
half as likely to occur as all the other numbers. Only zero to a half
produces zero, but a half to one-and-a-half - twice as likely -
produces one, and so on. When you have added 10, it's 10 and 99 that
are each half as likely as the rest. If you want a uniform
distribution, try something like =INT(RAND()*90)+10 etc.
Following your solution I get the entire table (2 col. x 5 lines) in
my Writer document. But I want to insert only the content of one of
the second column (the random integer), the value only without any
text/cell format from the spreadsheet document. The insert position
format in the Writer document should be use on this inserted value.
So, *how to insert only the value of 1 cell*?
One obvious way would be to create five separate spreadsheets; then
you wouldn't need the internal labels and each spreadsheet could
contain just its one significant cell.
o Copy the relevant cell in the spreadsheet.
o Paste it into the text document, but using Edit | Paste Special...
(or right-click | Paste Special... or Ctrl+Shift+V) instead of ordinary Paste.
o In the Paste Special dialogue, select "DDE link".
Something like this would also work for your earlier problem, in
fact. The only difference is that with OLE you can edit the linked
document from the target one, whereas with DDE you cannot. In this
case, it would mean you could edit the spreadsheet contents from
within the text document. But you wouldn't want to do that in these scenarios.
I trust this helps.
