Chapter 9. Creating Spreadsheets with OpenOffice.org Calc
What You'll Learn in This Chapter:
In the preceding chapter, you learned how to use the OpenOffice.org Writer application, which is similar in many ways to Microsoft Word. In this chapter, you learn how to use the OpenOffice.org Calc application.
The OpenOffice.org Calc application is an electronic spreadsheet similar in form and function to Microsoft Excel or Corel Quattro Pro. OpenOffice.org Calc can be used to perform mathematical calculations of all kinds. For example, a homeowner can use OpenOffice.org Calc to amortize a loan or maintain a personal budget, an engineer might use OpenOffice.org Calc for load calculations, and a pollster might use OpenOffice.org Calc to maintain lists of statistics or an index of contacts.
By the end of this chapter, you'll be able to put electronic spreadsheets to work for you.
