=2-5

if you want to enter a formula, you need to enter and equal sign first. OpenOffice.org has a pretty good manual on it somewhere that should help Smile

Ah

Use a single quote to indicate a text field. So you'd type '6-8

It disappears

The whole point is that it disappears. It indicates to OO.o that "THIS IS A TEXT FIELD, DON'T MESS WITH IT"

Spreadsheets have used it for years and years now. It's universal.
