Hi Andrew!

To question 3 - it can be done by macro.
I use spreadsheet where name, URL and filter options for various txt files are stored. From here listbox is populated and I can pick one of them. Then macro opens it.
URLs and filter options can be easily get from once "by hand" opened file with macro from Villeroy http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?p=142868#142868.

If you are interested just say... A little experience about macros won't hurt. Wink

Hi Andrew,

I had a quick look at the problem and I guess that you, maybe, could do it but I think you need a dedicated graphing program. Spreadsheet graphs are really not adequate for this type of plotting particularly if you need something of presentation quality.

I'd suggest having a look at something like:
R http://www.r-project.org/
or
gnuplot http://www.gnuplot.info/

There's a bit of a learning curve involved but you will have much better control of the options that you need. Both R and gnuplot also have good help lists or fora.

edit
Forgot to mention that both of the programs mentioned above will handle the data import problem (or may not even notice that there is a problem) .
