Yes: create what you need in a spreadsheet and copy and paste the
required cell range into your text document. It will appear as a
table but will function like the spreadsheet section that it is.
Or embed a spreadsheet object: Insert | Object | OLE Object and pick
spreadsheet, then fill it in. Then you get most (all?) of the
facilities you'd expect. Double-click to open the spreadsheet object
There's no "Or" about it: isn't that just a complicated way to achieve
the same thing?
Looking again, yes the same thing; sorry. More complicated though? - I'm
not sure: one way you need a separate Calc window open, the other way
you work directly within the Writer window alone.
Referring back to my recent comments, this really should be the
default action for anything table-like.
Er, I think it is ...
I was trying (badly) to make the point that there should ideally be no
such thing as Writer's own table construct. IMO of course. It adds
nothing but confusion when a Calc object can be embedded instead. Why
does Writer need to have it's own sort of table, especially one so
restricted in facilities and with a rather different usage from Calc?
