I have an application that takes input formatted as csv. my source form is calc sheet with computed cells. if I save as csv, I need to re open the sheet's ods file when I make changes. is there any way to export as csv but keep the original ods in calc?

Not that I know of. As you suggest, what you need is an Export As CSV function rather than the existing Save As CSV function.

But there may be a workaround:
o Have both .ods and .csv files open simultaneously in Calc.
o Instead of using Save As from the .ods file, copy the relevant material (it cannot be more than part of a single sheet) from the .ods file and paste it into the .csv file.
o Save the .csv file - or Save As if you need a new file name.
o Swap back to the .ods file (Alt+Tab?) to continue working.

I trust this helps.
