I am trying to implement Linux workstations in the office which means using LibreOffice instead of Word. While Writer renders .doc[x] files pretty well, my users face the problem that sometime Writer will paginate differently than Word; in particular if there are charts, tables or forms that fit on one page in Word, but get split over two pages in Writer. Users feel that this makes Writer unusable as people cannot reference e.g. "page 13" from the original Word document and have it show correctly when viewed with Writer.

Has anyone run into this? Is there a solution?

Hi

I had this question after viewing Open office calc - Extract url from hyperlink..

As I have a lot of folder names inside the list of bookmarks thus the referenced version doesn't fully solve my problem but it did what it said.

I also tried the formula
= if (vartype=9,1,0) 

Open in new window

but got #name? as a result.

And
=oCell.GetTextFields.getByIndex(0).URL

Open in new window

as a formula result in Err 501.

Would be happy about clear and competent help (free of charge).

I wish an open-source web cms-site to publish my portfolio (architecture). The sistem shall have configurable fields, and ideally the ability to set-up multi-multi relationships. I don't need social - users, etcetera, only catalog but the way I want. Html5+css3 output.
I would then like to access the same database with libreoffice to easilly retrive different projects for different curricula/portfolio (i.e. only hotels, or only over a certain budget) and format the information in different ways (information in tables, or in forms...).
I don't want to keep both a cv and a website repeating allways the same informations.
I have a small cms experience (old Modx), I was looking at Processwire and Boltcms, but could'nt find any based on firebird as libreoffice does. Wich would be a good solution?
Thank you

I have two separate column of number sets.  I want to compare the two and come up with a 3rd column set of numbers from column A that don't have any of the sets of numbers in column B.

Thanks
