As I understand, OpenOffice is a free substitute of Microsoft Office(Word/Excel/Powerpoint/Others) and has an in-built PDF converter? Is this correct?

Correct and in my opinion a very decent substitute for Microsoft Office. All PDF converters basically add a virtual printer to your list of printers installed so that you can print to file and save it in .pdf format.

Thanks! I already installed it and is working fine. I however do not find any easy way out in OpenOffice Calc to just convert a specific sheet(s) to PDF. Is there a way out? I saw in OOO Forums about some program based coding to achieve that which I do not understand.

You can use any of the following software already suggested such as primopdf or dopdf, all you have to do is to give the print command from within your application and then select the installed software as the printer.

You can follow below given steps to export only selected sheets :-

OpenOffice -->> Edit Menu -->> Sheet -->> Select -->> Select Required Sheets

Then

File Menu -->> Export As PDF -->> Select "Selection" in Range option -->> Export

Unsure if this works on every single version of Windows, but this is how I did it: you create the document in Wordpad and save it in .rtf format. The .pdf format is unavailable.

Then close Wordpad, re-open it and go back to the saved file.

If you go to "Save as", this time .pdf format will be added to the list of available formats. You can then save the identical document as a .PDF document.
