Subject Re: Help with inserting and deleting rows in spreadsheet
Date Fri, 07 Mar 2014 17:35:47 GMT
Have you used any spreadsheet before?  AOO works like most of the others
including excel.

For example, create a new spreadsheet.  On the far left you will see a
column of numbers representing the rows and across the top you will see a
row of letters representing the columns.  If you do not see these features
go to Menu->View->Colum & Row Headers and turn them on.  To insert a row,
place the selection (i.e. "click") in the column of numbers on the row
where you want to insert a row.  Right click on the column on numbers and
select "insert rows".  Inserting columns works similarly.  Pretty SIMPLE!

Additionally, you will find a lot of helpful information by using the
Menu->Help->OpenOffice Help item.  In my experience the OpenOffice help is
the most useful of any application I have ever used.
