Ubuntu :: Converting PDF To ODS Format (OpenOffice Spreadsheet)

May 11, 2011

I know this is more of the Openoffice question but I felt I would find some solution here for this. At my work I am using lot of PDF files which are created using Openoffice Calc (Spreadsheet). I want to convert those PDFs to Calc file again for editing. Currently I am using a windows Machine with able2extract pdf converter for converting PDFs to .xls file. But it is not ideal solution for Linux and Openoffice users here.

Ubuntu :: Openoffice Spreadsheet Hyperlink Path?

May 12, 2010

I'm having some trouble with hyperlinks in openoffice 3.2 spreadsheet, though it may be a begginers problem.

I wrote a script to execute a certain task (in my case, to open an DNA alignment file with bioedit) and then, in openoffice, I assigned a hyperlink button to the path needed to execute the script, which is in my /home ("./script_file"). When I do this the first time, clicking the hyperlink button runs the script perfectly. However, whenever I close openoffice and re-open it afterwards, the hyperlink doesn't work anymore. I've checked and this happens because the original URL, which was "./script_file" changes to /home/user/etc... or /temp/etc... and, obviously the file isn't found. If I manually correct the URL, the hyperlink is functional again... how to fix the URL of an hyperlink so that I won't have to correct it every time I close and re-open the program?

Ubuntu :: OpenOffice Spreadsheet Slowdown When Copying Multiple Cells

Dec 13, 2010

Does anyone else find that Openoffice 3.2's spreadsheet app becomes unresponsive when copying and pasting multi-cell selections? I've had this problem ever since I started using Ubuntu 10.04, which comes with OO.O 3.2. The problem becomes noticeable whenever I make a selection more than about 8-10 columns across. Once the flashing border appears around the selected cells, the spreadsheet app becomes very sluggish. The mouse still moves normally, but it takes several seconds after a click until the highlight moves to another cell, or to un-select the cells, or copy them. These slowdowns happen both in old spreadsheets and in freshly created ones. They didn't happen with Openoffice 3.1 or earlier. Haven't tried it under Windows, so I'm not sure whether this is an issue specific to Linux OpenOffice 3.2. Other apps don't seem to be affected.

Ubuntu :: Converting MS Access To Openoffice Base?

Sep 23, 2010

Everywhere I read, this seems to come up as a very difficult thing. Just want to record how I did it.

In Access, export the table to an Excel Spreadsheet. Using Openoffice, open the Spreadsheet, but save as an Openoffice (.ods) spreadsheet. ( Note - According to the Base help files, if you import an Excel Spreadsheet, it is read-only)

Open Base and Create a database. No tables, no nothing, just create. Now Open this and and also Open the spreadsheet. Select all the data in the spreadsheet, 'copy' it, and in the Database tables area, 'paste' it. I had problems in that it wanted to create a primary key, so added an extra field.

I then went into the database design view, right click on the appropriate field to make that the primary key, and remove the primary key from the unwanted field.

Delete the excess column. This is just for a single flat table, with no linking to other tables. I hope that this helps someone. I did it for a membership database table, and have been able to replicate the query to filter for the Snailmail folks (Those that did not have an email address in the table). Still trying to figure out how to do an envelopes report though.

Software :: Converting 3GP File To DVD Format (PAL)

May 17, 2010

I'm trying to convert a 3gp (mobile phone video) file to PAL DVD format (which is I believe MPEG2 video and one of a few audio choices, in an MPEG PS container). But while the file plays fine in mplayer and vlc, my efforts to convert it, using either VLC or devede, always seem to result in either the converted video being speed up (noticeably, we're talking twice as fast or so not 5%), or in the audio going mickey-mouse. How can I get the file converted correctly? Bearing in mind it needs to be PAL not NTSC (so a lot of stuff I might find online isn't going to work as-is)

Ubuntu :: Converting 2 Mirrored NTFS Drives To Ext Format?

I have 2 drives mirrored via windows software raid and I plan to toss the drives into an Ubuntu server soon where they will also be mirrored. The server will have another drive for booting. What is the best way to get these mirrored drives into ext format while preserving my data? I plan to use software raid in Ubuntu as well. My only idea is to format a 3rd drive as ext and copy all the files over, seems inefficient though.

Ubuntu :: Opening MS Word Docs In OpenOffice - Changing Format

Feb 18, 2011

I noticed that files that were written in MS Word 2003 change when opened in Open Office 3.2.1 This usually involves tables, lists, and image placement, as well as page margins and boundaries. It sometimes makes it annoying when reading files saved in MS Word .doc format that other people send me. Does anyone know if there is an extension to fix this? Or settings that can be changed? Also, was this addressed in version 3.3.0 of OpenOffice? Has anyone tried it on LibreOffice? I don't want to install VirtualBox, Windows, and Office to read Word files properly. I dislike MS.

Ubuntu :: How To Use Formulas In OneOffice.org Spreadsheet

Dec 29, 2010

I'm trying to create a simple times table on OpenOffice.org Spreadsheet

I'm trying to use the "$" in the top tab (input line) i.e.

Quote:
=A3*$B2$
Quote:
=A3*$B3$

[Code].....

To make the question clearer. When I used to use Microsoft Excel in Windows I would do just as I said in the above and I would be able to construct simple multiplication tables to more bigger/harder to memorize kind of type. And that would be by dragging the rectangle from it's bottom-right corner

Screenshot-5.jpg
Screenshot-4.jpg

So my question is what's the alternative OpenOffice.org Spreadsheet symbol for the "$" symbol used in the formula bar in Microsoft Excel?

Ubuntu :: How To View Contents Of Spreadsheet Download

Jun 6, 2011

I'm in an Aussie rules fantasy football competition and someone posted a zip file with relevant stats for players in the under 18 comp, as a guide for selecting possible players in next years team. Never used any of the office applications. I've attached the zip file and this is what the poster said...

In the actual spreadsheet though, there are two sheets. The first is all the raw data which you can order by position (based on me watching the games, and the line-ups listed on the AFL websites), K: H ratio, state etc. The second is a sheet which you can use to compare players.

I find that sometimes it is easier for me to make decisions about which players to pick when the stats are more obvious, so if you are the same, you can use this sheet as well. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy the spreadsheet and I'll update it after each round. Fixed, I had to change the file from .zip to .xlsx
