Description dirkvd 2004-03-24 14:09:30 UTC
I have in my possession a .xls file with constraints on a field (i.e.
Data->Validity constraints) that bug. I think it's an importing issue, because
just looking at the constraints and closing with "Ok" makes the bug go away.
Closing with "Cancel" does not.

I see no evident way to add an attachment to this report, and frankly, after all
the hoops I had to jump through to get this far I'm beyond caring.  Want the
file ?  Mail me.  I'll even explain which field to look at.

Bug confirmed in OO 1.1.1rc3 and Staroffice 7.

Hi Niklas,

talked to Daniel and he said user defined Rules are not possible for validation
now. He also mentioned that you possibly have an MS-Interop. PCD for this.

No, this is not planned for 2.0. Reassigning to Bettina.

One of the reasons, why German Tax Administration (Zoll) prefers Excel and
doesn't like
See attached doc, cell "E-Mail" (F7), data validity.

Please consider Target Milestone (later means never). One for 4.0?
