Hello, I think it would be nice if the datasource information (used for example to do mail-merge) was save in the Text (sxw) file. Currently it is saved on the disk, and if the file is opened from another computer, the data source connectivity information is lost. So you could save datasource information used by the document in the file/document itself. What do you think of that ? Thanks, bye.

I think this is a duplicate of Issue #16146. But it's definately NOT a stopper to OOo 1.1, so please change the target milestone.

It looks indeed like issue 16146. Just to be sure I will explain here what feature I expect. Yes I would like to have a per-document DB context/ Datasource. I mean in my document (docA) I would like that all information concerning a datasource (datasourceB) - like tables, queries, links - be saved in the document. In fact it would be nice if it were possible to choose either to save it (datasourceB information) into the document or globaly for the user. This is for example useful (per document datasource) when sharing files accross a network so that the network administrator doesn't have to specify datasource information on every computer and user account) The idea of an "explorer" seems nice, that way it would even be possible to drag and drop datasources from one location to another (eg from global datasources to per-document datasources) According to the issue 16146 the request was essentially for queries, but it could be for a complete datasource (includinf queries, tables, datasource format/access...)

JSI->MIB: Which target do you think is realistic?
Comment 4 michael.brauer 2003-10-13 09:57:33 UTC
It seems to me that we should have a look at this bug together with issue 16146

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
