This may be a bug?

tony chamberlain
Hi

Here is my information before my question:

  -OS: Linux  2.4.20-8 #1 Thu Mar 13 17:54:28 EST 2003
  -OOCALC version: 1.0.2
  Note: for consistency we have to use the above
version
        of Linux and cannot go to a higher version.


Problem

I have an xls file I created with oocalc.  I
made it an an xls so more people could view it via the
internet.

This file is a spread sheet of bugs I found in a
Linux program.  I am testing several programs, so
for a new bug list I copied the above xls file, saved
it as a new name.  I wanted to edit some of the cells.
I can select all the cells, and delete contents.
HOWEVER, if I try to edit the contents it won't work.
I put the mouse there and double click I do not get
the text selection cursor and cannot edit the text.

This seems, however, to be an itermittent problem,
which happens usually, but not always.

To answer some questions:  yes, CELL PROTECTION,
and DOCUMENT PROTECTION (SHEET, DOCUMENT) are off.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank You
Tony

Tony Chamberlain

Is is a VERY old version of OpenOffice.org. Can you consider upgrading a a
newer version (2.0 is available for free from http://openoffice.org and so is
1.1.5).

Is it possible that you do not have "write" permissions on the file ?

Thanks.  It gave me a whole bunch of files like
below.  This is not what I expected from reading
how to install on a web site.  There are no
files with "installation" in their names.  Only
a bunch of files of the type below (more than shown).
There is a README but it doesn't really say how
to install.  Can anyone help me?

...
openoffice.org-base-2.0.0-3.i586.rpm    
openoffice.org-core10-2.0.0-3.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-calc-2.0.0-3.i586.rpm    
openoffice.org-draw-2.0.0-3.i586.rpm
openoffice.org-core01-2.0.0-3.i586.rpm  
openoffice.org-gnome-integration-2.0.0-3.i586.rpm

rpm -i openoffice.org*

Then cd into the directory (I forget the name, but it is in the same
directory with the above rpms) and rpm install the appropriate menu rpm
for your distro.

If you look on the openoffice homepage you'll find an installation procedure
for linux.

These are Linux related files.  Are you planning on installing on
Linux?  If so, what version?

If it is an rpm based installation, then you would type in rpm -ivh
*.rpm  You should also have a desktop directory that will have some
system specific files.

If you are on Windows, you downloaded the wrong file.
