Description stargeizer 2007-01-04 02:59:19 UTC
I've received the attached documents, you have to decompress it into your
machine (contains 3 files in a "Test" folder, please decompress "AS IS":
presentacion.ppt, hojadecalculo.xls, and hojadecalculo.odt) and open
"presentacion.ppt", you should see 2 frames. One contains a pair of links to an
ODS spreadsheet, try to open it and it will launch openoffice and the
spreadsheet will be open.

The second frame is the problem: If you try to do the same thing, an popup will
appear sayng (translating): "Windows Can't Find the file
C:/link_to_document/hojadecalculo.xls#Hoja1. Make sure that the route and the
file name are correct and... blah blah blah".

The same bug is present on the linux version, specifically archlinux 0.8 beta,
windows XP SP2 fully updated, and windows 2000 SP4+sr1 fully updated. Also
doesn't work in a machine with OOo 2.0.1 and 2.0.3 (tested).

All installations are set up to open by defect MS formats, and were tested on
installations where save to ODx is default and installations where save to MS
formats is default, checked all boxes "L" and "S" under "Load/Save -> Microsoft
Office", and unchecked also.

Sorry about my english. I will prepare tomorrow another ppt with an word
document linked to it to see if this can be reproduced also in word documents,
although i think that only xls have the "#" problem.

Can anyone confirm plz?

Thanks in advance.

Only occurs in links directed to xls files. No other format is affected in the link.
