Title says it all. Is there any place where I can download a short list of the built-in Star Basic math functions?

For example I'm writing a Basic macro and need a function that returns the largest value in a list of arguments (traditionally called a "Max" function), but there doesn't seem to be one. I thought this was a fundamental function in all versions of Basic, but this one doesn't seem to have it unless it's spelled differently.

Most times, I can figure it out by trial and error, but It would be nice to have a short document that lists these basic functions. Alas, I've searched the documentation and can't find any such thing.

You can use all the CALC functions.
Search the forum for functionaccess to find examples.


This should help you

Isn't what is in OpenOffice.org Help ok?
Go to Help in the menu and select OpenOffice.org Help, then Macros and Programming, then Command Reference. You then can look at either Run-Time Functions, Statements, and Operators, or Alphabetical List of Functions, Statements, and Operators.

Perfect, thanks. That's exactly what I was looking for. I guess I'd been stumbling around in the wrong sections.
