OpenOffice VS Google Sheets, any benefits?

Postby xuzo » Sun Apr 14, 2019 4:55 am

I've been dabbling in Google sheets, and since it's online, seems to be a lot of JS , scripts and so on, makes them slow.

Does open office calc have the same functionality as Google sheets?

Are there any benefits to using Calc vs Google sheets?

I don't need any collaboration tools, this is all for me, and actually I prefer to work offline.
Windows 10, 64 Bit
Open Office 4.1.6

The answer for your last statement is obvious. Use Calc of OpenOffice or LibreOffice.

Benefits? There are some differences, see incompatibility comparison of Excel|GDocs|LibreCalc in a German Libre forum thread: https://www.libreoffice-forum.de/viewto ... excel+calc
In short:
German: Blau: möglich, Rot: nicht möglich, Schwarz: nicht bekannt oder Kommentar
English: Blue: possible, Red: not possible, Black: unknown or comment
Formulae are in German Language, for better understanding ask specific questions in this forum...

Cheers
OpenOffice 3.4.1 and 4.1.7 on LinuxMint 19-64 Mate, rarely W7-64 pro and W10-64 pro; LibreOffice current versions
