Defining Database Ranges

From LibreOffice Help
Jump to: navigation, search

You can define a range of cells in a spreadsheet to use as a database. Each row in this database range corresponds to a database record and each cell in a row corresponds to a database field. You can sort, group, search, and perform calculations on the range as you would in a database.

Warning.png You can only edit and access a database range in the spreadsheet that contains the range. You cannot access the database range in the LibreOffice Data Sources view.

  2. Choose Data - Define Range.
  3. In the Name box, enter a name for the database range.
  4. Click More.
