WordPerfect isn't a full-blown spreadsheet program, but for many different types of calculations, WordPerfect is definitely up to the task. For example, you might want to calculate a total of reservations for your team's final banquet. WordPerfect can do that and much more. In fact, users can construct small spreadsheets in WordPerfect and turn to Quattro Pro only for larger, more complex spreadsheets. See the three appendices for information on creating spreadsheets in Quattro Pro.
Suppose that you have a team list, with a column indicating the number of persons attending the team banquet (see Figure 10.23).
