Chapter 8. Working with Lists and Databases > Using Lists and Databases in Calc

Using Lists and Databases in Calc

As you've seen from our discussion of Calc formulas and functions in Chapters 5 and 6 (respectively), Calc definitely lives up to its number-crunching duties. Calc also provides you with the ability to manipulate lists and databases. Lists typically consist of information entered in columns, with each item in the list in a different row. Lists can consist of one column or several columns of related information.

A database is a collection of organized data relating to a particular topic: a comprehensive list of very important clients and their personal information, a catalog of your personal compact disc collection, or all the data related to the running of a small business. Probably the biggest difference between a list and a database is scope.
