Easy to use Spreadsheet


I'm after some advice here. I have never needed to use a spreadsheet before ... but now I do.
I'm after a very simple to use spreadsheet. I only want to make a record of payments, nothing complicated, no maths involved, no grand totals, I just want to cut down on printing bank receipts and save on paper, but maintain a record of payment. It would also help if I could make a copy (online) of my payments and have the ability to paste the numbers directly into whatever spreadsheet program I end up using.
Any advice will be helpful

gael.

Thanks,

yes but liver office is a massive application, so if you don't want to install a whole suite of stuff you don't need.
but if you already use it then yes I agree.

They are all much of a muchness.

I use Libre Office Writer a lot, so it kind of made sense to try the 'Calc' before adding yet another program to my ageing computer.

I second that motion.

If you really want a small, simple spreadsheet program there are MANY to choose from. If you already use LibreOffice, you will find it will do all you want. It is larger, slower, with MANY features you will never use, but it lacks for nothing.

Okay, I'll give Libre Office Calc a try and take it from there

Thanks,
