This answer was rated:

can you suggest a simple spread sheet program for my Man 10.6.8?

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

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.


 

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?
