Comment 4 michael.ruess 2003-09-23 11:50:26 UTC
MRU->CMC: simple table at first sight. There are too many columns
after import (not really visible, but you can travel through the
table) and their widths are too large.

Accepted anyway.

Another issue with tables in rtf, probably related: 
the columns get mixed up, as does the numbering. 
It should look like this: 
The Word document format gets imported correctly

Because of a shortage of resources we're not able to promise to fix this issue
for OOo 2.0

My Software Config : Windows XP SP2, 1.1.3
My Hardware Config : Mobile AMD Athlon 1.20Gz 256MB RAM

Confirm replication of bug.

Applied the following test cases

Test1 : Tried to create an rtf file with a table and some values, using 
OpenOffice and then open the file again in OpenOffice
Result : Successfully opened.

Test 2 : create the same in MSOffice Word XP and then open with OpenOffice.
Result : Successfully opened.

Test 3 : Test 2 + out on some borders for the table and then save the file in 
Word and open in OpenOffice
Result : Failed.

Conclusion : I think the problem arises when some border is put on top of the 
table. The table.rtf file had a border on the table, hence it didn't work. 
Without the border, it opened fine.
