Hi, nice tutorial. Just one question. You have written:
Note that when you're in a formula and you start to type a name, it will appear in the Formula field as Prepaid_Taxes does here.
But when I start typing _Q1 nothing appears. Why is that and how can I make it appear?
Thank you ;)

Hi Oldrich,

I think the names appear when the letters you've typed are unique enough to tell OOo what to display, so for some names it will take some typing to make a name appear.


Thank you for your reply. I have tried such a name: _TestingName but it does not work either. It seams, that OOO does not like "_"...

Once again a nice article. Is there any way to define a worksheet specific names instead of global names, as we do it in excel "sheetname!name"?
