To test it, I filled out the box with a series of digits (1234567890) across the line and down the rows, but the total number of characters I entered is far less than the maximum text length I set for the box. So, is a "text length" anything between two spaces? How does this option work? What are its rules? hiloelaine@gmail.comTue, 13 Aug 2019 21:23:41 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/204547/determine min and max dates (date/month) froma series of dateshttps://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/204431/determine-min-and-max-dates-datemonth-froma-series-of-dates/Hi
I'm hoping someone can help me with the following problem:
I have a series of dates in two columns and I would like to determine which is the min-date and max-date (based on day & month only[C:\fakepath\Min&max dates.ods](/upfiles/15656429372855606.ods)) over all years in each column.
See the attached sample spreadsheet.
The red-colored cells are manually edited to show the expected results.
Thanks in advance

The printers want a correct-sized PDF, and the obvious way to do that is by setting my page dimensions to the same of the noticeboard.
LibreOffice writer seems to have a maximum page width of 300cm. How can I increase this?
Thanks in advance!

When I go into query designer, I am only able to put in about 20! Why is there this limit? Or am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to expand it? I went in to the SQL and was able to add another field there. It then shows up in Design View. Would prefer not to have to code in all of the other fields.WayneRhodesSat, 26 Aug 2017 23:08:57 +0200https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/127038/How to get highest value using Libre Calchttps://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/78528/how-to-get-highest-value-using-libre-calc/ Hi,
I am trying to work out how I can achieve a MAX() type selection on a range of cells, but limit the cells over which I perform the MAX() according to the value of the adjacent cell.
As a new member, I can't attach a jpg of what I mean, unfortunately, but here is a text description:-
Cells A1:A9 contain a random mix of "Apples", "Oranges" and "Bananas". Each cell in B1:B9 contain a number of fruit of the type contained in the adjacent "A" cell.
What I want is to put in Cell D1 (for example) the MAX() of the values in B1:B9, but only for (say) "Apples".
If I do MAX(B1:B9), I (rightly) get the simple highest value, regardless fo the type of fruit. What I need is some way to filter on the fruit and MAX() only matching cells.
Is there a reasonably simple way to do this without modifying (e.g. by sorting) the source data?
Thanks

I am using XP and LibreOffice 4.2.0.4. When I try to expand the large array by copying many rows from the top of the array to append them to the bottom, I get odd behavior. After several minutes of apparent inactivity, the file vanishes without any comments or messges. That is, the file no longer appears as an open file. I tried increasing the swap file size to 4GB, but that did not help.
