Subject: Re: A newbie asks about printing labels
I'm told that gnumeric-->TeX is the conventional way of doing labels,
but I'm uncertain how to go about that. Can anyone point me to a
source of information or offer a little guidance?
The simplest is to export your gnumeric data file to a csv then
use AbiWord to generate the mailing labels.
Thanks, Martin. I would have guessed you could do the labels via
AbiWord, but I'd really prefer LaTeX for several reasons.
What is a "csv"?
CSV is an acronym which stands for Comma Seperated Values and it is often
used as a filename extension such as "data.csv". It is essentially a list
of values in Text format broken up by commas and it is often used for
sharing lists of information like spreadsheets. Most spreadsheet programs
offer import and export of CSV. Only the values in the spreadsheet cells
gets saved though, equations and spreadsheet functions are not stored.
Less often people might also talk of TSV, which is Tab Seperated values.
Hope that helps
