William, all the pdf converters for Windows that I've found recently come with bundled software that either I don't want or that flags the antivirus/malware program. Even using their custom install features I still see many adds or upgrade prompts after install. All undesirable. OpenOffice apps

Alan, All your columns, all 1,024 of them, or at least the 1,024th column have something in them. Inserting a column would "push" the last column and its data off the spreadsheet. Modify your spreadsheet so there is nothing in column AMJ and you will once again be able to insert a column or

Are you double-clicking the file name to open it? If yes, try opening the desired program first then use file > open within the program to open the document. If the above works then it provides a way to open documents and provides some clues to troubleshoot the problem. On Thu, Sep 27, 2018 at

You don't say how the hymns are arranged and segregated from one another. "With a few keystrokes" is unlikely unless the arrangement supports it. How are they stored? - one per file - one file for all - something else? And how are they arranged? - Write one per page one per paragraph
