This is a follow-up of issue 84562.

- if you open the request document with OOo and save it, then the request is
lost: if you open the document in Excel once you saved it, you can't update
anymore the result of the request.

The ODBC connection, even if not supported by OOo, should be kept as-is when an
Excel document is saved with OOo.

Currently, if you do a pilot to migrate to OOo people will lose those kind of
links to documents. That's not acceptable by those new users who will reject
OOo, because they lost data !!

I'm no longer responsible for Spreadsheet Issues and therefore this Issue is
re-assigned to the default owner.

Re-flagged it as enhancement as it had never worked and is new to OOo.

reassigning features and enhancements to user which
will be the default owner for those tasks (was introduced some time ago)
