I use Ubuntu 11.10 and Libreoffice.I want to do some thing shown in this video using Libreoffice and Ubuntu. I want to know how can I create table in libreoffice calc and paste it to libreoffice writer.

Download the OpenOffice extension named Pasteasvalue. Install it in LibreOffice using Tools menu--> Extension Manager.

Now when you copy any table from Calc you can paste it using the Pasteasvalue option from the Edit menu.
