Hi,

Im new here and i realy need some help if that is posible ....

I have a document that needs to have a time stamp when ever a cel is modified ... i'v tryed to use [ =IF(Q4<>""; IF(R4 =""; NOW(); R4); "") ] and it works fine how ever it works only if the added contet is deleted from the cell, it's not working if im using a Validity > Cell Range drop down selection. and i cant find any version that can work like that ...

So insted i'v tryed to use Changes and relly on the hovering info that is time stamped and more that that it tells you what was changed. Except on one of the sheet's it dosen't whant to work ... it works on the other two sheets but not on the one that i realy need .. and i cant find any information why ..

And yes i did reset the profile ... that did nothing ...

Please help ... i just dont get it ...

This feature is not avaiable in Calc. Read section 3. Dates in cells in Ten concepts that every Calc user should know.

If this solved your problem please go to your first post use the Edit button and add [Solved] to the start of the title. You can select the green checkmark icon at the same time.

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

In this situation I would select all the cells, Edit → Copy, open a new spreadsheet, Edit → Paste, and save in ODS format. If you have more than one sheet, use the Insert → Sheet dialog and copy/paste the others to the new file. Then enable Edit → Changes → Record.

Change recording in the file is handled differently by other spreadsheet software, like Excel, so one is asking for trouble to open an OpenOffice spreadsheet (ODS) with change tracking in Excel, or an Excel spreadsheet with change tracking (XLS or XLSX) in OpenOffice. This may not be related to the reason you are having difficulty with that sheet, but I have noticed that people are more likely to have OpenOffice/Excel problems when change recording is in use.

This is true, particularly if MS Office file formats are used (.xlsx and .xls).

Note that OpenOffice will read (sort of) .xlsx, but not Save using that format.
