Description johnix 2005-08-04 21:50:44 UTC
Database form table controls may contain information that is more useful than 
the tables they represent. EG they can include fewer columns, filtered or 
sorted data, list box columns which contain results from SQL queries, and have 
more precise data types (eg "currency"). 
 
However, there is no way that I know of to export the data as it is displayed 
in a table control : table control contents can not be copied and pasted into 
OOo Spreadsheet. The only way I can think of is by creating a database Query 
producing similar output. This is however a very burdensome task.  
 
Making table control contents copy-able would solve this problem gracefully.
