Description justinclift 2005-02-14 09:23:27 UTC

In OOo2 Base (680m77) after I've created a new form with the Wizard, if I do a
File -> Save Copy as, then close the document and open the saved one, it's no
longer linked to the data source.

I then have to go into the Database Design/Edit mode, right click a form
element, select Form, choose the correct data source from the Data source drop
down, and then close that dialog.  If the document is saved now, it keep track
of things properly.

Seems like a bug, and that when the initial form is saved, it should also
correctly save the data source along with it.

Regards and best wishes,

Justin Clift

In fact it is a bug that the data source is not stored with the form. However,
changing this would require quite some effort (since the save could would need
to know whether it's saving into the DB doc, or into the file system), and given
that there's a workaround (yes, an ugly one), I think "OOo 2.0" could not be

Thanks for reporting, anyway :)
