Hello everybody,

I'm trying to make my way to create a pdf template for filling out pre-printed invoices.
Unfortunately I can't figure out how to have certain text fields calculated automatically in OO Writer.
That is, i.e. if I have a sales position for a certain product, and a Quantity (Q) as well as a Price per Unit (P), and I would like to have the next field calculated automatically:
New Field = Q x P

Can anybody give me a hint here?
Thanks in advance,
Lennart

You mean that you expect that the formulas in Writer will carry over to PDF? I don't know if that will work.

Yes, it is possible to have pdf documents calculate values. Actually, I tried to create that template with Scribus and the calculation would work propperly. I just had some design and font problems with Scribus, thats why I was trying to do that job with OpenOffice...
