google docs
I have chrome and have looked at docs and all the templates but can't find what I want...

I want the same exact thing as what's in open office or MS - the spreadsheet in Excel.

Also... how can you move everything from a USB drive from Open office / Excel to Google Docs?

not sure about the spreadsheet - I don't use it, but to move/add something to your google docs - after logging in to your google doc account, across the top it shows the different templates (unless you choose to hide them) - below that, there is a little graphic of a file folder (when you hover over it it says "open file picker"). Click on that and follow the instructions to upload the file you are wanting to transfer in to your google docs

okay... I have files that say .ods and those will upload...

now to figure out why some are .ods and how they got that way...

These are copies of hubby's I put into my mac.. and I think they changed when I put them in... why some did and others didn't .. unsure.

Chrome docs and sheets do not always work exactly like Word and Excel.

I infinitely prefer working with Excel and will avoid Sheets like the plague.
They do not format or sort or work the same.

Right now he's doing Open Office and has issues with it. We don't want to pay for Excel.

I was able to upload a few files he's more apt to work on often so he can try it out.

I'm thinking of switching on the offline usage .. it has warnings like other apps about being able to blah, blah.. is it basically safe to check off to use it offline?

He updated his USB drive after today's fiasco with his computer.. which shut down on him... and then wouldn't respond when he finally got it back on ( by hitting the keypad button above the 4 .. not sure what happened there. ).
