From the Menu bar

Click File and then select New > Spreadsheet.

From the toolbar

If a document is open in any component of OOo (for example, Writer), you can Use the New Document Image:New-calc-icon.jpg icon on the Standard toolbar. (This icon is always a page of text from the current component with a black down-arrow to the right.) Click the down-arrow for a choice of which type of document to open (text document, spreadsheet, and so on). Click the button itself to create a new document of the type that is currently open. (If a spreadsheet is open, a new spreadsheet document will be created).

From the keyboard

If you already have a spreadsheet open, you can press Control+N to open a new spreadsheet.

From a template
