Description beerman 2004-10-13 22:32:39 UTC
While using Openoffice calc, I wanted to import external data from a (ASCII)
file. Therefore my first action was to use Insert->External Data. There I could
choose all sorts of files to import (via the "...") Of which I used and gave me
a fine "Text Import" box. However, when I set the seperators right, I clicked
"OK" I came back in the External Data importer, in which I wasn't able to click

After usage of the Help function, it was found that these kind of files should
be imported via File->Open CSV/Text . Which gave me the EXACT same "Text Import
box" for tuning seperators.

WHY? Wouldn't it be logical to be able to import this via Insert->External Data?
