Description h.ilter 2004-09-16 15:32:26 UTC
Saving started document should be saved without merged fields.
Here is a part of the related spec from number: 6.9.1 - Step8 - Save starting

"This option (Figure 31) allows users to save the initially created document
containing text & merge fields. Clicking 'Save Starting Document' opens a file
picker point to “my documentsâ€. The most current OpenOffice Writer Format shall
be preselected & the file name text edit shall be filled with the document name.
When saved the starting document shall contain fields & database connection

Comment 2 Oliver Specht 2004-10-27 10:05:51 UTC
At the point where the document is saved it is not possible to detect which of
the database fields have to be reset and to which content they should be reset. 
Some of the fields may have had content before the wizard started.

Comment 4 h.ilter 2004-10-27 11:05:57 UTC
HI->CJ: In cause of last comment of OS. the spec should be modified again.
Comment 5 christian.jansen 2004-12-28 13:09:17 UTC
The spec says that the place holders (fields) and the connection has to be
saved. Please explain more in detail why we should not save the fields and where
the advantage for the user is not to do such.
Comment 6 h.ilter 2005-01-18 11:16:28 UTC
HI->CJ: My started document contents database fields like <FIRSTNAME> <LASTNAME>
When I use this document next time, I get the fields already filled with the
first entry of the database which was used before. 
But what I expect is to get my started document without filled database fields.
Comment 7 christian.jansen 2005-02-11 10:07:43 UTC
CJ->OS: I agree to Hasan, I expect the same. This is something we should fix in
OO.o 3.0. I'll going to change the spec, I'll add a remark, that we'll fix this
Comment 8 christian.jansen 2005-02-11 10:08:30 UTC
Changed target to OO.o later
