Description megadix 2004-04-28 14:00:30 UTC
The purpose of "External Data" dialog isn't very clear at first sight.
- user expects that "URL of external data source" must be csv file
- user chooses a cvs file
- a "text import" dialog appears and the user can use it
- but then there is no way for the user to carry on importing, the "OK" button
is disabled
- the user searches in the Help files and discovers that he/she can only import
HTML files

Proposed changes:
- change the label from "URL of external data source" to "URL of external HTML
data source"
- provide standard CSV import functionality available, depending on the chosen
data source
