Automatic calculations in table in Writer/ODT document

Postby MikePG » Tue Jan 05, 2016 9:52 pm

Hi - I've prepared a community questionnaire (http://www.coupar-angus-democracy.org.uk/uploads/3/3/7/0/3370470/community_survey_form_v18_for_individuals.doc)and I want it to automatically calculate the average of scores in Part B. I've tried all the online advice, but to no effect. Can anyone help? Cheers.

Which online advice? I think it is not possible. Nevertheless, you should replace your check boxes with radio buttons. Check boxes do not provide the intended exclusive choices. You can mark all boxes.

Thanks Villeroy - It wasn't so much the check boxes, but the scores out of ten that I wanted to average automatically.
