Just installed it on my PC. Had a play around. Think I found what you want. Can't have just Row headers though. It has to be Row and Column headers.

Go to Format, Page, Sheet. Tick the box Column and Row headers.

well in calc ( as opposed to math) i just drew up a rough chart, added the lines and printed ok

johnnyrocker, so your printout includes the:

A, B, C, D, E, etc column headers across the top of the printout?

I read the query as the printout needs to show the column headers, as A, B, C, D, etc.

But that can't be done. You can only show the column headers and the row headers 1, 2, 3, etc. as well.

If that is not what is wanted I apologise. If he/she just wants a printed "down" line between the columns then, yes, borders is the way to go.

that was my interpretation of the post (i may be wrong, tis not uncommon;))

Thanks, johnnyrocker. Perhaps we will get a definitive answer from brigtoo telling us what it is exactly he/she wants from the printout.

i realise i wasnt very clear. i need to print out the spreadsheet to include all that is on the screen i.e. lines between columns and rows, column and row headers including all data in headers and cells.
sorry im late with this but ive been to work.

If OO is anything like Excel then these options would be under File|Page Setup or similar.

In Excel it is format>cells>Border. You select the cells that you want to have liones around and the borders allows you to put a border around the cells you have selected and the fill in around the cells inside by clicking on a cross symbol
