Description scoolen 2012-01-25 09:48:13 UTC
When saving a spreadsheet as a dBASE file with cell contents which length exceed 255 bytes, the resulting DBF will have empty columns.

This is related to bug #43524

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open new spreadsheet
2. Create a header cell
3. Paste 256 bytes of char data in one cell (make sure format is Text)
4. Save as dBASE "test.dbf"
5. Exit OO
6. Open DBF

7. Try again 254 bytes of char data

Also, I DID get a warning when the filename I chose had a space: "Data could not be written."
