Post date: October 24, 2006, 17:10 Category: Software Views: 2917 Comments
Tutorial quote: Templates make life easier when you use them for letters, documents, brochures, etc. but they really make life easier when you use them for labels. This article is about how to use the OpenOffice.org templates, in particular the WorldLabel templates, to print the labels you need. It shows how to download them, install them, use them as they are, and how to customize them with graphics and other features.

How to create OpenOffice.org macros and automation

Post date: April 13, 2005, 00:04 Category: Software Views: 2281 Comments
Tutorial quote: There are times when you need to perform some task over and over, or when a task is complex enough that doing it manually makes it hard to get it right. OpenOffice.org macros allow you to save a sequence of operations with a single name so you can do the same thing repeatedly. Automation is a first cousin to macros. It lets another application control OOo and make things happen without user intervention.

Post date: December 13, 2005, 12:12 Category: Software Views: 2853 Comments
Tutorial quote: ather than having a shallow affair with OpenOffice 2.0, we can use it to get a little more intimate with the data. We can even badger it into forming relations. Why force your database tables into a marriage with OpenOffice? Because, as with human relations, life -- and data -- are pretty meaningless without tight connections.

This tip on creating forms is part of a series I'm writing on OpenOffice.org 2.0 Base. So far, I've discussed making a plain database from scratch, creating tables, entering data using the table editor and a simple form and creating a view of a table or tables.

Let's start off with a description of what table relations are anyway, then discuss how to create a data entry form like this one, which has data from two related tables.

Tutorial quote: Instead of creating a new desktop setup every single time a new user comes along, it would be much easier to create some templates. If only there were an easy way to make and manage these templates.

Fortunately, we are not the first to ponder this issue. The creators of Sabayon decided to tackle the lack of a good desktop setting management tool. With Sabayon, they created an application that handles these problems and more.
