    Get real boy. I use a computer to make life easier !
    I've used Kspread -> pdf -> ascii, but that's crap for computing.

    Well if 'file' > 'export' was available I'd have used it.
    It's can be difficult to say what doesn't exist ?
    I'm using linux, but couldn't find a non-Win kde group.

    Thanks.

    As Thomas said, KSpread (the KDE Spreadsheet) doesn't come in v3.0.3, so
    your installation is already suspect. The KSpread that comes with Slackware
    12.0 is at v1.6.3, and includes a "File | Export | Export as text" option,
    which exports the spreadsheet as a CSV (with the option of comma, tab, or
    space delimitation).

    Apparently you are using something so off-standard that you need a
    specialist newsgroup for help. Certainly, the KSpread that you use could
    not have come with any normal Linux distribution.

    You want comp.windows.x.kde, which is the newsgroup that discusses KDE under
    the X windowing system (the standard Linux GUI support).

    Strange problem you've got there, so maybe you should try the KOffice
    mailing lists:
