how to use calc

Asked by Allan White on 2014-05-26

I have a spreadsheet showing a number of shares and the price paid etc. When I entered the money paid for shares, I clicked on the icon at the top of the page so all the sums would be shown with a dollar sign in front. Now I want to add these collumns and find the total but every time I try the answer either shows a $- or $000.

Can someone explain to me in easy terms how I can add the whole column or a part of the column and receive a correct and accurate answer so I know how much they cost. Someone told me to format them as accounting in microsoft excell but OO does not have this option.

Thank you , Allan

I have not received an answer yet. I may be posting the question on the wrong site. If I am, can somebody please tell me where to go to find out about OO calc.

It seems a straight forward question and should be easy to answer but it is driving me nuts.

Hi Allan,

This part of Launchpad is specifically for questions about Bazaar, the
version control system; I'm afraid I wouldn't know where it would be
best to look for advice about OO Calc.

Regards,

Dan
