I created a document in MS Word that is composed of a table with cells. One of the cells is used for time entry. When I enter a time in this cell in OO.org it autoformats the time to hh:m:ss when I leave that cell. I don't want that. I want hh:mm only. How do I stop this behavior? I used Word 2003 in XP to create the document but would like to be able to edit it in Ubuntu (Karmic) OO.org.

You can turn number recognition off (pop-up menu or Tools - Options - Writer - tables) or select Number format, time, then select hours:minutes from the pop-up menu.

If your problem has been solved, please edit the first post in this thread and add [Solved] to the title bar.
