Description dnwilson 2003-10-14 10:24:04 UTC
Saving a file with bibliographic references and bibliographic table in a Windows 
97/2000/XP document ( .doc) loses the bibliographic data. 
To demonstrate. 
Open a new file, insert a bibliographic reference, insert a bibliographic table. Save 
as .doc. 
Close the file re-open the .doc file.  
The bibliogrpahic reference is no longer a field, just a text  eg '[ref2002]' 
The bibliographic table is empty. 
This is a major filter error.

This is not a major filter issue. Problem is, that does not offer a
feature like Writer does with its bibliography.

MRU->CMC/OS/ES: What are your opinions about this? May the filter
workaround this by exporting this as kind of "User defined index"? Or
could Word's "authority table" feature help...? I am not so firm with
our biblio feature, so any Ideas/hints/opinions are welcome.
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2003-12-05 11:49:58 UTC
MRU->BH: I don't think, that a workaround for bibliography-export to
Word format is that much important, that it has to be done for OO 2.0.

To the user, this might appear as a major compatibility issue. I am preparing a
submission to a scientific journal and guess what, they want a .doc file.
Preparing everything with OO, its not nice to see my bibliography disappear when
I do the final export to mswd ! 

I use the following manual workaround, which could be used by the export script
I think: make the bibliography unprotected, so that you can select it as text in
the OO version, then copy paste it to the .doc version. The citations in the
text are correct, simply, they are no longer active citations, and the
bibliography is just normal text.

Filter could do this, with a proper warning ??

This issue is much more relevant now that MS Word 2007 includes citation and 
bibliography support in that application and in the Open XML file format.

I assume there will be a MS OXML import/export filer, which will have to deal 
deal with citation and bibliography. But for export to earlier versions of MS 
word mkersz's suggest above should be added to the filters.

Since Word 2007, MS now supports Bibliography / Citations.
This should be implemented into the docx filter.
