Description kyferez 2009-09-07 07:48:40 UTC
If I import a spreadsheet as an OLE object, linked, into a Draw or Writer file,
and scroll down in the object then click off, it does not always stay scrolled
to the same location. This is especially noticeable when you have the
spreadsheet imported multiple times so that I can display different data from
the same sheet, and make changes to the spreadsheet.

I have been unable to determine the exact circumstances that cause it to change
the scrolled location, but often it scrolls back to the top of the spreadsheet.

Furthermore, If I have multiple sheets in the spreadsheet, and attempt to have
one ole object on one sheet, and another ole object on another sheet, the
scrolling issue remains, as well as formatting issues. The table zoom
(stretching might be more correct) often gets horribly messed up between the
multiple ole objects. This is true of other cases as well, but it is especially
apparent when working with multiple sheets with multiple OLE linked objects
(linked to the same file), to the point that OLE is unusable. 

NOTE: I have not tried to see if the problems remain if linking to different
files. I have only needed to link to different sheets withing the same file, so
you should likely test that as well.

I forgot to mention that the OLE objects will also change which sheet they are
set to display all by themselves in the scenarios described by my original post.

- confirmed on Windows XP with 3.1.1 and 3.2.0
- confirmed on Linux X64: OOo 3.2.0 and OOO320m14

This is a duplicate of at least #64202 and even perhaps an older one.
