Description lux44 2004-01-19 10:03:00 UTC
1. Create new Text Table in text document.
2. Set some cell value to 1.
3. Create another new Text Table.
4. In some cell create a reference to previous table (by pressing F2 and 
selecting the cell with value "1" in it)

Now both tables should have value "1" in them.

5. Rename the first Table (from Table1 to TableA, for example).

Step 5 breaks the reference and the second Table displays:
** Expression is faulty **

This is a defect, because the reference should be retained. The second Table 
should display "1", although the first Table was renamed.

Such references are pure text and not active fields, therefore they cannot
update when the target name has changed.

- define the cell content of the first table as reference field (Insert - Fields
- Other - References - Set Reference)
- insert this reference in the second table (Insert - Fields - Other -
References - Show Reference)
