--- Comment #40 from mfigrs <> ---
I think there's a good reason for this feature not being implemented in OO. And
it's the fact that spreadsheets in general should not be used for scientific
data analysis. These are business and accounting tools - not scientific tools.
There is a lot of specialized data analysis software - first example is the "R"
project - open source, well documented and easy to learn. R's data analysis and
graphing capabilities are like Heaven and Earth, compared to Calc or Excel. 

Moreover, Excel is known to have multiple bugs in its data analysis engine. I
don't know about Calc - never tried, since I used R for the first time. If you
would take my advice, drop both Calc and Excel and start using R. You'll never
want to go back.
