Description wrxin 2009-09-19 00:51:06 UTC
We have Microsoft word 2003 documents with embedded Microsoft Excel worksheets. 
The issue I'm having is that they are not visible at all in Writer. Not a 
readonly or formatting issue, just not there at all.

I am not able to reproduce the problem from the scratch with my test documents,
please attach a  document which shows the problem to this issue, so that we can
reproduce and fix the problem here. You can also send the document directly
( for the case it contains confidential data. Feel free to
re-open the issue when you've done.
Thanks for supporting us!

MRU->HBRINKM: see attached document. There, an OLE object directly follows a
nested table. Our import fully ignores this object since the import of nested
tables has been reworked in OOo 3.0.1.
