datapilot's strange number format
calc with reference to base
base none

Description murof 2008-09-22 19:14:24 UTC
I use to make a draft on the datapilot. But now - in the version 3.0 RC1 - the
number formats are inconsistent. E.g. the number 24,500 (in base) is displayed
as 24.000 (with dot) or like this: 24500 (!). Sometimes such numbers are
displayed as datum. I have discussed this problem with members of the german
forum: but we didn't come to
a satisfyingly result.

confirming it.  Yeah the number format appears to be ignored when pulling data
from external sources.

I'm taking this.

@murof: hmm... actually I have hard time reproducing this.  Can you attach a
test document that can reproduce this problem?  Otherwise I won't be able to
debug....   Thanks.

okay - I try it (see attachment). Calc gets data from base via datapilot.
Thank you for investing your time.

Comment 9 kyoshida 2008-09-29 18:02:25 UTC
Ah, the number formats do not get carried over from an external source since the
data transfer is done via UNO's* APIs.  We do get the data
type information (i.e. Date, Time, String, etc.) but the more detailed number
format information is lost in the transfer.

So, for Calc to honor the number format set in Base, we need a way to retrieve
the original number format from the Base file.

BTW this is not a regression since 2.4.1 exhibits the same limitation.

kohei: what's up now? OpenOffice was released, but this bug exists. The
datapilot isn't practicable and therefore I can't use the whole suite. Or do you
know a way to bypass datapilots wrong formatting?
