Steve Herrod :

Hi, I'll be happy to help with this

Steve Herrod :

There are several spreadsheet options available - Microsoft Excel is probably the main one but can be fairly expensive

Steve Herrod :

Apple have produced iWork which also has a spreadsheet package

Steve Herrod :

but there are also a couple of free office/spreadsheet solutions

Steve Herrod :

OpenOffice and LibreOffice

Steve Herrod :

of these, I tend to prefer LibreOffice as it's a little less 'cluttered'

Steve Herrod :

Would you have existing Claris Works spreadsheets that need to be opened/imported?

Steve Herrod :

LibreOffice should be able to open these

Steve Herrod :

it can be downloaded from here

Steve Herrod :

is there any specific spreadsheet functionality you are looking for?

Steve Herrod :

Each of the applications mentioned should cover most requirements but just wanted to check if there was anything specific in Claris Works that needs to be mirrored in a new program

Steve Herrod :

Cheers

Steve Herrod :

Customer:

Steve Herrod :

Yes, LibreOffice can handle algebraic formulae

Customer:

Thanks. If I need to reach you withmore questions, what's the best way?

I'm trying to open llibre. There are four different icons on my desktop bearing a version of the program title. I've opened them all and found no way to open a spreadsheet.


 

Expert:  Steve Herrod replied 1 year ago.
Ok - if LibreOffice is installed you should be able to go to Macintosh HD-->Applications

and then select LibreOffice, it should display a screen like this?

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
