Nothing beats a spreadsheet program for changing data, nothing beats a database
for keeping it. I often use msAccess to input tables I have modified in msExcel.
I would like to do the same in OO.
Dragging out a table into a sheet is fine. But how do I get the data back into
the DB? Copy-Paste works only with single fields. Drag-n-Drop too. The
spreadsheet, although it refreshes and reflects the changes in the database, it
cannot change the database.

I would very much appreciate to have a way to input large amounts of data into a
database with OO as frontend, either in a similar manner as msAcces (Copy-Paste,
Drag-Drop) or differently in that the sheets can not only be a view of the DB
but also update it.

Maybe something like this is already planned for 2.0?

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