Hello%---

I have a simple spreadsheet in Calc. It only has these headings:

Name | ID | Seat No. | #1 | #2 | #3 | #4 | #5 | Total

There are about 130 entries under that.

My boss wants lots of paperwork on each item...
so I need to print out 130 separate pages with the information all "pretty" like.

Name: *

ID: *

Seat No.: *

#1: *

#2: *

#3: *

#4: *

#5 *

Total

I just one page of the document prepared in Writer that will display like above.

Is there a quick way to have it product a document that puts the information onto 130 separate pages, so I can send them a PDF to print?

File>New>Database...
[X] Connect to existing db
Type: Spreadsheet
[X] Register database
Store database document

Use the database table (which is just a read-only link to your spreadsheet) in Writer like an address source for a serial letter.
