Description windl 2007-04-19 15:24:26 UTC
When you reference an other table's cell, like "=<other.B4>" in a document, OOo
Writer fails to adjust formulas of depending table cells if the referenced table
("other") is being renamed (like: "a_better_name"). The table cell then would
contain a formula like "=<other.?>".
I think here the computer could save the user a lot of (stupid) work.

The problem happened with StarOffice 8 Product Update 5, which should correspond
roughly to OOo 2.1.

In case it matters: Renaming the table was done via right mouse button over the
table name in navigator...

MRU->OS: it may be related to issue 58307. Changing something in the source
table of the formula does no update the formula correctly.
