Create a Contact Manager with OpenOffice Calc

In today's tutorial, let's create a simple contact manager with OpenOffice Calc. This contact manager tutorial is about Calc's use for data
organization rather than for number crunching. Although this tutorial is discussed in terms of OpenOffice, it pretty much applies to StarOffice also.

In today's tutorial, let's create a simple contact manager with OpenOffice Calc. This contact manager tutorial is about Calc's use for data
organization rather than for number crunching. Although this tutorial is discussed in terms of OpenOffice, it pretty much applies to StarOffice also.

The purpose of today's tutorial is:

(a) to introduce people that never have used a spreadsheet to spreadsheet basics,

(b) to introduce people that never have used OpenOffice Calc or StarOffice Calc to Calc basics,

(c) and to help MS Excel and Lotus 123 users migrate to OpenOffice Calc.

Thus the focus of this how-to article is on the basics of setting up Calc and navigating it rather than doing complex number-crunching tasks. We will
take a tutorial walk through Calc's number-crunching function in an upcoming MozillaQuest Magazine tutorial.
