Description mypersonal 2007-03-02 09:16:53 UTC
Microsoft Excel has a feature of "Show Data Form", which can be call from
"Data">"Data Form...". This menu will popup a dialog which user can input large
amount of data through an automatically generated form in the dialog.

This feature is sometimes needed by customers, so we would like to add the same
feature in OpenOffice.

First, do we have a JCA from you?

Then, using the ScDocument functions bypasses undo and related things. Either
implement undo actions for the changes, or use the ScDocFunc functions that
include undo.

I'm changing the issue type to "Feature", as there is no patch that we want to
integrate. If you come up with a new patch, you can change the type back to "Patch".
