In a Writer document, create a chart from a table. Then delete the table and
activate the chart -> it is not possible to open the chart-internal data table
as it was in old chart.
When updating the chart (or save and reload Writer document) it will be shown

Hm, in the old chart I was also not able to open the internal data dialog, after
deleting the table. But it would be nice when the data could be copied.
According to issue prio guidelines I would rate this as Prio 4 as it is rarely
occuring szenario that a user deletes the table which is still in use to provide
the data to a chart.

TL->AMA: For this to work before the table gets deleted the function
SwDoc::CreateChartInternalDataProviders should be called in order to solve the

The the problem is to find all places where the table may get deleted and call
the above function there.
There are at least the following ways how a table might get removed:
1) delete the table in the navigator
2) select the text para before and after the table and press delete
3) CTRL-A and press delete
4) select all col (or rows) and use "delete columns" ("delete rows").
5) merging of tow tables
6) redlining
7) undo/redo

Especially in 4) there might be the problem that the rows/cols may get removed
subsequentially. But we need to know that in advance to call
CreateChartInternalDataProviders when the complete table is yet intact.

Please have look. Thanks!
