The regression analysis doesn't work!  I can only get a straight line plotted on
the screen when using linear but none of the other work such as power, log, etc.
 Linear works but doesn't display the results either.  I've checked this as far
back as StarOffice5.2 and it didn't work then either.  This is HUGE to me and my
colleagues as we often analyze our data and without this star calc is useless. 
I'm NOT overstating this either.  I boot into Windows whenever I need to do
something with data analysis because I can't find it in OO.

I'm familiar with LINEST and LOGEST but they are not solutions to the problem. 
I think OOwriter is comparable to Word but OOcalc is lacking considerably where
it matters to my colleagues and myself.

I hope that this is being investigated and a fix is in the forseeable future

this is an Issue against Chart. So I changed the component and re-assigned it to
the owner of it.

Sorry, can`t reproduce. All regression curves work fine. If it doesn´t work in
5.2 maybe it´s an missing feature; see issue 366. Also have a look into at
"Ideas and Feature Wishes for the new Chart".
So I set the Issue as an duplicate to 366; if it`s dosen`t match, feel free to
reopen this Issue and give an detailed description what you expected /missed.

*** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 366 ***

Please note this issue has been incorrectly identified as a duplicate os Issue
366, which is an RFE on defining custom ranges for error bars, and has nothing
to do with regression analysis.

This confusion is resulting in inappropriate comments being filed in Issue 366
by confused members, which is beginning to effectively cloud Issue 366.

Thank you.
