Rectangle maker from Calc file (example Excel & OpenOffice) request

Post by Stolareczka »

Hi All!
I need gadget that would create rectangles from calc file (example Excel & OpenOffice).
I create a lot of cabinet fronts, also counting square meters and prices with open office calc file and it woudl be great simplification if I could import X, Y and quantity to aspire to create simple rectangles with one layer.

I was searching for it, but find nothing.

If You can, help me please :)

It's the CSV package

Adrian, I didn't knew Paul passed away. We had some discussions about his topo package, and Paul was a really nice guy.

Hi Stolareczka,
I think we can help you.
We would need the following:
1. A drawing of what you want the gadget to make.
2. Copy of the file you have to read (CSV, TXT, etc...)

Send me you email address use the (PRIVATE MESSAGES) and we will get the ball rolling.
Thanks,
Jim
