Performing calculations in OpenOffice is a task that requires familiarization with the interface and knowledge about the tools available to work with. There are four toolbars to work with :
- Menu toolbar - contains the main menus of the calculation module.
- The Function toolbar - gives you access to function icons such as Open, Save, Copy, Cut, Paste.
- The Object toolbar - a set of tools that are specific to calculation and cell formatting.
- Calculation toolbar - used for the entry of the formulas necessary for your calculations.
