Description bmarcelly 2008-10-18 10:54:10 UTC
In 3.0.0 the names of the cells of Writer tables is changed, for complex tables (split and/or merged cells). Formerly you got names like C2.1.1 after some split and join. Now cell names change across the table so that there is always simple names (C5, F3, etc). Look at the Developer's Guide pages : http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/DevGuide/Text/ Tables#Table_Architecture http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/DevGuide/Text/ Named_Table_Cells_in_Rows%2C_Columns_and_the_Table_Cursor These pages reflect the naming scheme that was valid before 3.0. No documentation is bad, but outdated documentation is worse.
