Description owfanatic 2005-11-11 17:41:19 UTC
It is very important to have Excel-like "Accounting formatting" of cells 
available in the CALC/spreadsheet module of OpenOffice.  Anyone who has to do 
basic accounting/book-keeping/budgeting will require this function.  It is a 
significant issue that will prevent me (and others I'm sure) from deploying 
OpenOffice in any kind of a financial environment.

Specifically, the $ (dollar sign) needs to justify to the left portion of the 
cell, while the currency amount itself justifies to the right.

In no way a Prio 1 and AFAIK a double

Duplicate of Issue 15773,  also related to Issue 23839

Both Issue 15773 and Issue 23839 should be resolved together for the alignment
and underlining to be appropriate for use related to accounting and finance.
