Problem is, that MS Word's tables do not support calculations in table like Writer does. MS Word only offers this via the "Formula" field command. Implementing a workaround via Word's field when exporting would be the only way to get a dynamic result.

There is technical difference, yes, but the end user might regard it is as lack of compatibility with Word97 in OpenOffice.org. Could you please estimate the cost of a fix in time/money in order for companies to invest in a fix for OOo 2.0.

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