Spread Sheet

Hello there, first of all I’m new and english is not my native language so be patients with all my mistakes, please
I was looking for spread sheets for OpenSuse 12.3 but I can’t find any (I’ve install Calligra-Sheet, Calc and Gnumeric but I need others).
I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. So please, it will be great if you could give me some examples that are actually installed on your computers because I’ve hear a couple of aplications but I can’t find them :’(

What others would you need? :open_mouth:

What functionality are you looking for?
Especially LibreOffice Calc should have everything you’d ever need…

I know and I reaaally like it! but this is for a homework so i can’t use them… I’ve been looking for other options but I can’t install any, I can’t find them

Use google to search for and read about the various applications available, then this tool might be helpful too

software.opensuse.org: Search

What kind of homework?
Why can’t you use them?

Both gnumeric and LibreOffice have a wide range of export options to other spreadsheets; the only thing you will not find on a Linux spreadsheet is VB. So, if that is what you are looking for, forget it.

In general, gnumeric has more scientific functions - if that is what you are looking for.

It’s about Linux aplications, one of them is a spread sheet. I can’t use them because they’re taken :confused:

them because they’re taken :confused:

Hi
What is your native language.

I think your issue is you have installed some applications, but can’t
find them to run them?

What desktop (DE) are you using? LibreOffice can save files in
different formats, are you looking to use the spreadsheet in a
Microsoft application?

Since it is homework, does your education institution provide a free
copy of the applications your wanting to use, is so, then codeweavers
crossover office may provide a method to use MS applications. I do use
it to run MS Office 2003.

Have a look here then:
List of spreadsheet software - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

My native language is Spanish.
No, my problem is I can’t find the applications. I’m working with OpenSuse 12.3 GNOME 3.6.3.1
I don’t know if i’m doing it wrong, every time I see a possible application (For example: Xxl) I open Yast, then software managment and then type the name of the app. But it doesn’t apper :confused:
My school didn’t give me anything, I’m for my own. I have to look for a spreed sheet (I can’t take Gnumeric, OpenOffice, Calligra-Sheet).

Xxl is the real name? :-?

Please say the real names if you want us to help finding them.

You can search for more apps here:

Why not? We tell you which are the best spreadsheets available, you say
no, but not why.

wait. You said taken?

Do you mean that you have to use a spreadsheet that no other student has
chosen? That each one has to choose a different one? Because if your
class is large, the number is limited… have a look at that wikipedia
article.

Hi
Xxl looks like it was developed in 1999… way to old for openSUSE
12.3…

Why can’t you use LibreOffice calc?

Using YaST will only show the applications available on the release. To
search further use http://software.opensuse.org/search? (click the
spanner to set at 12.3)

You might find joining IRC channel #opensuse-es or the Spanish mailing
list may help.

Yes, that’s what I meant. I didn’t know there was a number limit, my teacher just said “There are plenty of them”
but thank you, I’ll take a look at that wikipedia article and then I’ll take with my teacher to see if I can re-use a spreadsheet.

I can’t because another student used it, so I have to look for another. I’m going to try what you told me, and use that search page.
Thank you a lot

Some others to look at:

xspread

PlanMaker

NB An important criteria for many users is interoperability with the proprietary MS Excel and its proprietary file formats.

Not a number “limit”, but that the number is “finite”.

There is a small spreadsheet in the examples that were included with the
old TurboPascal/Borland Pascal and probably BorlandC. It is proprietary
code, though. Published, but proprietary.

It is the first complex source code I had a good look at.

If you are allowed to use really ancient spreadsheet software the try
visicalc

It works on a DOS emulator known as dosbox . To install dosbox run the
command

sudo zypper in dosbox

you can get the program here :-
http://www.bricklin.com/history/vcexecutable.htm
tutorial for spreadsheet :-
http://www.bricklin.com/history/refcard1.htm

Dosbox usage :-
start dosbox using command “dosbox”
mount your download directory using command

mount c
/home/<username>/Downloads

and then type “c:”
From there you can launch visicalc

I did a demo worksheet and it works. Proof :-
http://img.susepaste.org/view/raw/38751122


GNOME 3.10.1
openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64) 64-bit
Kernel Linux 3.11.6-4-desktop

Now, that’s a step back in time. I still remember my undergraduate days in the 80’s playing with Fortran and arrays. (It was tedious.) :slight_smile:

Were you using very early version or something . From my screenshot you
should have realised that the version of sw, I am talking about doesn’t
involve shift registers LOL :slight_smile: It looks and feels like very modern
spread sheet program and works like it too.

Except that to find sum of content of few cells you cannot do

=B2+B3

etc but use function

@sum(B2,B3)


GNOME 3.10.1
openSUSE 13.1 (Bottle) (x86_64) 64-bit
Kernel Linux 3.11.6-4-desktop

Yes, I remember it well because we had Apple II computers at high school. :slight_smile:

Thank you so much!!!
