The minor issue I have is that some fields in these 
numeric columns have a - (dash) rather than a 0 or other 
number. After importing data into LibreOffice Calc these 
cells are left aligned text fields, where numeric fileds are 
right aligned. Wanted to have them centered.

beginning of text fields to set them up as left right 
centered. But don't think that works in either Excel or 

To get what I wanted, ended up highlighting how range 
and setting up a conditions format option for cell = "-" 
and creating a new style I called Centered with just the 
alignment option of center. That works, but seems 
overkill for few fields. About 250 rows and 19 columns of 

Perhaps I've missed an option or it was just something 
the newer spreadsheets just don't support?
