Hope this is the right place for suggestions Smile

the =NOW() function inserts current time, which re-sets to "current time" at any future time.

A really helpful function would be =NOWABS() [or similar] that enters a value for the current time at the time of data entry, leaving that value intact.

This forum is generaly used by the NeoOffice developers to discuss technical issues.

NeoOffice is based on the OpenOffice.org office suite. Any suggestions for new features, such as the one you have, should be directed to Sun Microsystems' OpenOffice.org engineers.

Unfortunately, our very limited funding and developer resources limits the current scope of the NeoOffice project to keeping a native version of OpenOffice.org running on Mac OS X and making significant changes to OpenOffice.org features is outside that scope.

You can file a feature request in the OpenOffice.org issue tracker to get it on the radar of the core OpenOffice.org developers and if they add this feature, the new behavior will get included in a future release of NeoOffice:

Note : our advice is to not mention NeoOffice as mentioning NeoOffice may cause OOo volunteers to accidentally close it without actually reviewing your bug.

Thank you. The primary goal of NeoOffice always has been to provide a fast, stable Mac OS X office suite.

In the meantime, this wiki article should help you roll your own date/timestamp function as a macro.
