I use this page to create a calendar.
12-leaf wall calendar
- Presentation on 12 A4 or half A4 sheets to create a wall calendar to flip through

With the perpetual calendar,
and I select the desired month,
I copy and paste on a new page, text document "writer" libre office.

Seems that array formulas referencing a different sheet than the one copied are a problem when copying to another document to be embedded.

Workaround: First Paste Special (Shift+Ctrl+V) to an empty area (or a new sheet in the same document) in Calc and make sure Formulas are not copied, but only Text, Numbers, Date&Time and Formats. Then select the resulting cell range and copy&paste to Writer.
