Note: I'm using the french version of OOo 3.2 When creating a formular and editing a listbox control,you will easily try to fill the "list content" field in the "DATA" tab, and it won't work, because that's the "list content" field in the "GENERAL" tab that must be filled. This duplicate field could be a source of failure and frustration for a beginner who simply wants to create a simple static listbox. (spent three hours to find the issue...)

Finally, someone on the French Forum explained to me the utility of this field (reference values) However, I still think that it could mislead a beginner like it did for me. Maybe should this field's label be more explicit, anyway different that the field in the "general" tab .

I can confirm that this can confuse the user. I reassign this to the requirements Team for evaluating.
