Re: Excel integration

Calc integrates perfectly in Writer, Presentation or Draw. Select your Calc table and simply paste it in any Writer document. You may also do a paste special as a GDI component, this way you loose the calc fonctionnalities but the objet you are pasting is vectorial so that you may resize it the way you want.

Finaly, for a great surprise, do this test: open a blank draw page, in the menu choose Insert -> Speadsheet (I guess it must be the right word as I use a french version of OOo) and voilĂ , you ended with a spreadsheet you can move freely in your sheet. You may then add any text, vector drawing, bitmap picture, mathematical formula, move them, rotate them, use multiple layers, etc. Don't forget that every part of OpenOffice.org shares 90% of the code, that's integration!
