1.3. Introducing Calc

Calc is OpenOffice.org's spreadsheet application. Create a new spreadsheet with File+New+Spreadsheet or open one with File+Open. Calc can read and save in Microsoft Excel's format.

In the spreadsheet cells, enter fixed data or formulas. A formula can manipulate data from other cells to generate a value for the cell in which it is inserted. You can also create charts from cell values.
