Product Requirement 
We should have database aware fields in Writer and Impress that allows to access
data directly from a database. These fields could also support some kind of
offline/snapshot mode where the last accessible data is stored in the SO/OOo
file. This would also enable to create some simple reports.

Product Concept
We will extend the existing fields in Writer to alternatively be based on form
data. For this, the fields must be able to be bound to a form control model.
The advantage over real form controls is that fields are part of the usual text
layout, which for instance is interesting with respect to hyphenation.

Comment 4 Frank Schönheit 2004-01-14 11:14:32 UTC
fs->lho:
We (os and me) have some problem with this item ....
- The requirement is not really clear. The first sentence
  "We should have database aware fields in Writer and Impress that allows to
  access data directly from a database"
  is
  - neither a requirement ("We should have a mode to operate atom reactors")
    isn't a requirement, too, is it?). Without a justification why this is
    needed I would not consider this a requirement
  - already available for Writer today
  - way too unprecise
- They way how we *could* understand it, it doesn't make any sense - as said,
  in Writer we already have this, in Impress there's no such thing as "fields",
  anyway, so what would "database aware" fields do here?

In the current shape, I do not see any way how to fill this PCD with live, since
it's simply absolutely unclear. What should be done with this kind of issue?
