I can't find any strings in the open office calc(version 3.2.1 in windows) document (*.xls) by doing a search(Ctrl+F).I tried with all options and then also i didn't get any positive result.

All suggestions are welcome!

please don't sign off each and every past with your (nick)name. Also, what're you searching for ? Examples ? Screenshots ? –  Sathya Jan 20 '11 at 13:25
Ok.thanks. In my xls, when i do a search for word "code" , it will not hit..even when the document contains 1000 times the word "code" –  Renjith G Jan 20 '11 at 13:32
Do you have formulas in your spreadsheet ? Have you checked the option to see if search is checking formulas too ? –  Sathya Jan 20 '11 at 15:32
