Description aaronpet 2003-02-26 13:35:53 UTC
embeded chart unable to use embeded spreadsheet data

I embeded a spreadsheet into openoffice... and selected the data area... and the
embed chart button is greyed out!  This is lame!

possible fixes:
 actually have full spread sheet functionality in that little spreadsheet window

and or
 have a way to reference peer objects.

actually embed a full spreadsheet file into the regular file, complete with
capabilities to have child objects...

Then make it so that there is a generic open office file, and then be able to
open in as a spreadsheet or drawing or writer as appropriate.

or make it so that one can at least edit the fields in the "chart data" box that
comes up when editing it.

ps, I did try to search the database for this bug... but it is completely
unobvious how to do it.  Sorry for the duplicate if it is one.

I was seething mad when I tried to do my homework and then had to reinput all of
my data by hand... multiple times because of this not working right.

I wish I could help,

Does star office 7 have this functionality?  

This product would become extremely usefull to me even if I could just copy the
whole area from a spread sheet, as to not have to retype all of the information.

This seems like a really tough thing to do, however it would give a much
enhansed report capability, and make draw a capable MS Publisher replacement.

->Hi Mathias. We have a lack of functionality here. Have there already been
thoughts started around this? I found two other related issues with unclear state:
Issue 22954 is about not editable formulas in spreadsheets or drawings in writer
Issue 27439 suggests to offer a possibility to edit OLE objects in a separate
window to work around missing functionality

Actually all issues have the same problem: we can't handle objects activated
inside objects.
