Convert a writer table to a calc spreadsheet?


Is there a straightforward way to convert an OpenOffice.org Writer table to a Calc spreadsheet?

Try exporting to csv or txt and then do it with gnumeric.

gnumeric versus calc

This is the first I've heard of gnumeric, but I just installed it and started it up. How does it compare with calc?

It is faster and very effective. But oocalc has many more features. Personally I do not use spread sheet programs... they are not meant for heavy computing.

No heavy calculation, but need more flexibility than tables provide

I'm not doing any heavy calculation, but I need more flexibility than Writer tables seem to provide. For instance, I want to be able to generate labels for the rows of the table of the form A1, A2, etc. These labels would be regenerated whenever I add or remove rows. Another example: in Writer it's awkward (though of course possible) to move a group of rows from one place to another. It's easier in a spreadsheet.
