This is to follow-up on issue 47703. The answer I received doesn't fulfill the actual request. Its not about just any way to cut&paste data from Calc to Base (especially not such a complicated way as described in the proposed solution). It's the request for an equally short and elegant way as used in MS Access. For attaching fields copied from a spreadsheet you just have to mark the empty last line in the opened table and paste. The data in the clipboard is attached to the table (if the format fits the table and all other criterias like uniqueness are met). This can be a single row of data or multiple rows. All rows, which can't be pasted for whatever reason are stored in a table called "PASTE ERRORS", which is created by MS Access as needed. There is no need to do any surplus typing or navigating through so many wizard windows. In my particular case I work with an SQL database and connect to it through ODBC. If you have to call upon such a feature repeatedly during the curso of your work, a solution calling a wizard and prompting you to input all kinds of information is to slow and awkward as a acceptable solution.

I am evaluating database front ends for a company parts database. After attempting the procedure in issue 47703, I have not been able to achieve the same results as in Access. I second the request that a simple copy and paste feature be made available. This so far is a large tick in the box for Access. I am using OO2 RC1 on Windows XP, so perhaps OS should be ALL and the version number should be bumped.
