1. Open a new writer document
2. insert/fields/page number
3. type "+5" after page number "1" which you just insert
4. insert a page break

In SwEditShell::Calculate() the text from the selection is queried using
This returns the value of the hightest page number field of the document instead
of the one that is located in the selected paragraph.

I was able to follow the procedure and reproduce the bug in OpenOffice 1.1.3.  

Windows XP Pro
1.2 GHz AMD Athlon

I could not reproduce this bug at all. I followed your steps exactly, many
times. I tried using 3 different systems:

System 1: windows xp pro and openoffice 1.1.2
System 2: windows 2000 and openoffice 1.1.2
System 3: Linux and openoffice 1.1.0

However, on each system the tools -> calculate does nothing. What is supposed to
happen here? A box pops up with the answer? I get no result at all using
calculate. The program just sits there idle.  Perhaps this is another bug?

When you click on tools->Calculate, click somewhere on the first page and 
right click -> paste shows the result from the calculation. I agree that maybe 
this is a little inconvinient because it is not obvious how to get the result.

This is an old one (occurs even in 1.0). So, this is neither a regression, nor
is this an exceptional severe bug, therefore I'll lower the priority and set the
target to 'OOo later'.
