I tried for Inserting  a local text file through 
insert->Link to External Data.., but i am unable to do the same , 

1. Open a spread sheet
2. Go to insert->Link to External Data..
3. Give local file Location 
   eg:- file:///home/abdul/Desktop/test
4. Prese Enter
 nothing is happening, 'ok' button is disabled by default

i can confirm this.  i created a simple text file with two columns and
20 rows.  after selecting the file, the "import text" window came up.
i could see the correct data, select the separator char, etc.  however,
when i okayed the import features, the "external data" window still had
the OK button grayed out.

yes, it is, thanks.

I searched for duplicates within the milestones, but did not expect it to be
already filed since oktober 2001.

seems, i also belong to the group of users, who do not understand this feature
as programmers are expecting.. :-)
