Description vimalathithan 2006-10-03 11:37:34 UTC
When using the external data (insert->link to external data ), after entering 
the web page address only the html table names are visible. It will be easy to 
select the tables if the actual web page is shown and tick mark to select the 
tables,instead of table names alone. The same feature is avialable in 
microsoft excel 2003,(with actual web page)

Are there any plans to improve on web data import? Last activity on this bug is
a while ago....

Here is a nice article describing how to cope with the existing implementation
in OpenOffice.org, if you like to import external data:
