Description dmhurrell 2010-03-08 16:57:48 UTC
importing data from named external cell

In Excel it is possible to name data in an external cell and then use
'Insert-Name-Paste' and then select the name and the data from that cell is
automatically imported into that cell.

This not seem to be possible in Calc. Indeed when importing an excel sheet or
converting an excel sheet to ods it comes up with different errors!

Using references such as C3 is messed up if a row or column is inserted so the
naming of a cell is an important way to reduce spreadsheet errors.

It seems to me essential that this problem is remedied.
