I had to put together one of these for a proposal for college and it took me quite a while as I couldn’t find any tutorials for openoffice. I wound up doing it on a windows PC with excel which is something I never like to have to do. I was able to apply how it was done to open office after I’d done it though so I put together this tutorial for anyone that winds up stuck as I was. All the best, I hope that this video helps you. It’s my first tutorial video so I hope people are able to get some info from it without being bored to tears.
