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 :

These pages reflect the naming scheme that was valid before 3.0.
No documentation is bad, but outdated documentation is worse.

splitting should be removed.
