Description charmwij 2010-03-16 09:48:59 UTC
I use a lot of spreadsheets with filters on them. At work, I use Office Excel, at home trying to convert to 
Open office. When I open the files in Open office, none of my filter settings work and I have to reset them 
again - which does not take long but in the long run would waste a lot of time. Is it possible to integrate 
something to make the transition more seamless?
