Description vn 2004-07-01 08:39:44 UTC
We have some problems when we save in MS-Microsoft 97 format (doc-format) from 
1) Mail merge fields: If we save a document with mail merge fields and save it 
in doc-format, the mail merge fields are no longer fields, but turn into text.
2) Table with calculations e.g. sum: If we save a document with a table with 
calculations e.g. using the sum-function in MS word 97 format, the calculation 
turns into text.

Rewrote summary. Added keyword.

VN, thanks for the report but in the future please write detailed summaries
pinpointing the specific problem instead of the overall category.

Also, this issue seems to hold 2 issues. In the future, please report 1 issue
per issue.

->vn: "thing" is true, you should:
1) give us a sample document
2) write another issue for the calculation problem

Sample document to the issue
Comment 5 michael.ruess 2004-07-21 15:21:11 UTC
Due to the extremely different concepts in mail merge between Writer and Word,
this is not supported by the im/export.

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