Hello,
I can't import a xls file into anm existing odt file. Is there a way to do it.
Converting it itno htnl and then inserting makes it too wide for the page layout.
Thank you!

Hi,

to make sure that you don't loose your styles. You should first open
the excel file with OO Calc and then save it in the
OpenDocument spreadsheet format. At least you can easily import
the new OpenDocument file into your OpenDocument Textdocument.

Cheers,
LarsB
