Let's say that you've got a spreadsheet where you need to enter a lot of information. Here's one example, but let's say that you have lots of fields, aka lots of columns, and you have to scroll around a lot to enter the data.
What if there were a bit of an easier way to enter the data?
It's the Data Form extension. Download and install the Data Form extension here:
Download the file.
After installation close both OpenOffice.org and the Quickstarter (the icon in the traybar), and start OpenOffice.org again.
Then set up the data like this, get it going.
Then click somewhere in the data, not a blank cell, and choose Data > Form. The data entry form will appear.
