    Default OpenOffice Keyboard Shortcut needed

    Hi all,

    Was wondering what the keyboard shortcut is for entering the date in OOCalc.

    I know in Excel it is "Ctrl" & "Semi Colon" key.

    Thanks

    Help> Shortcut keys leads you to the full list.

    There isn't a direct equivalent to the one you want but Tools>Optimise>Keyboard allows you to create one.

    You're looking for the ability to insert the date (C- and time (C-S-
    with a single keypress.

    Alas, openoffice isn't *that* much of an exact dup of MS Office. But then
    again, OpenOffice isn't MS Office either.

    You could create a macro/'basic' function to do what you want, then assign
    it a keystroke. This person has created a macro to do just that:

    No idea really how to enable it. To me, it's not a useful macro and I have
    no need to deal with it... There should be instructions at the link, or in
    the download file.
