Description tial 2006-11-30 17:41:35 UTC
In writer, trying to link an calc file.

Steps :

1/ Create a calc document with 2 sheets, fill some datas
2/ Create a new writer document
3/ Insert / OLE / From file -> select your file and check Linked
4/ In the new box created, double click to open the OLE Calc, chose one of the sheet
5/ repeat 3 & 4, but select the other sheet
6/ save file

At opening, you will ALWAYS see same sheet in the 2 boxes, and this is the last
sheet you selected when editing your writer document.

Problem is, that it is a link to the Calc file. The last viewed (active) sheet
is saved in the source file.
Only when NOT updating the links on re-opening the Writer document, the old view
of the linked OLE objects will be restored.

I aggre that if you didnt update your links, sheets stay the same.

I cannot understand how is that OLE is working  ;

If I want to add a linked OLE object, this is because I need to have an updated
witer document while someone updates the numbers in the calc sheet.

In short, if I put linked OLE sheets, I's because I need to have an updated
datas from that OLE source :)

While rearching in the issue tracker to retrive my own bug, I've missed the next
one when I added my issue :

Issue 64202

As I can read, mine is a DUP :(

That's righ, this on is a dup to issue 64202.
Nevertheless, I am sure, that this won't be fixable. As you already mentioned, a
link is for having updated number. But also the last view of the linked document
is stored in the file. So everytime, someone changes the viewed sheet source
document (and this is also the case when you double click the linked objet) it
is stored in the file and will be part of the object's update process.
The container document does not know about the type of the object (if its
spreadsheet or drawing or formula etc...), thus the last view cannot be
controlled by it.
