There is an apparent glitch in the Data Sources view. Please follow these instructions:  Create a spreadsheet with data in it.  Register the spreadsheet as a Data Source in Open Office.  Open the Data Sources view (F4). The glitch is as follows: If any of the cells in row 2 in the spreadsheet contain numerical values (numbers), the text entries in all the cells in the column below the numerical value will NOT be displayed in the Data Sources view (even though the spreadsheet contains the data). However, numbers will not be affected in the column. Also, if any of the cells in row 2 in the spreadsheet contain dates, the text entries in all the cells in the column below the date entry will NOT be displayed AND any numerical values will be changed to a date.

This is a known limitation of the spreadsheet driver. the driver use the format found in the first row as column format. So a number in the first row set the form to number and so a string will not displayed. The same with dates. anyway I set this issue to ENHANCEMENT and send to the right developer.
