Description stuarta 2003-04-23 07:32:00 UTC
If a spreadsheet has a reference to an external file and that file is moved or 
deleted you just get ERROR in the cell. If an external reference is not found 
it would be helpful (as Excel does) to pop up a "File Open" dialog box and let 
you point Calc to where the file has been moved.

a similar but not fully compatible solution is the Menu Entry Links
under Edit.

Nevertheless, it's one for Bettina.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
