So, we know the StarOffice help sucks. ;> The interface, while your portal to a host of Extremely Robust Features, can be less than intuitive at times. (The option to make text wrap in a spreadsheet cell, for instance, doesn't have the word "wrap" in the label.) Floyd and I don't cover the really obscure stuff in our "StarOffice Companion" book--we don't know why you're getting PS483 errors on your NT/btrieve installations, for instance. But we hung out with a lot of frustrated users for a long time, so we've got a few pretty cool solutions. We won't necessarily give you the full solution, but we'll definitely give you the page number. ;> Solveig PS We ended up leaving out the rather daring "Talk StarOffice to Me" appendix, so we can't help you on that front.
