Description tzp 2008-06-20 14:39:54 UTC
When transposing a table area (via copy & paste special+transpose), I get a lot
of #REF errors in the transposed table. The reason is that the references in the
original table that point outside the area of the table are transposed as well.

This is incorrect, as the cells referred from the original table remain in
place, so the reference in the transposed table should point to those cells.

I try to attach a spreadsheet to demonstrate this.

Can confirm this with OOo 2.4.0 and OOo-dev3.0-m19 on Win2k SP4.

However, when using:
everything works as expected.

Only the COPY - > PASTE SPECIAL -> TRANSPOSE is affected.

This happens again in OOo-dev300-m21_en.
Moreover,after that ,when sava-close,and open the document again ,the error 
codes are #NAME?
,instead of  #REF!.
I personally think this is also an issue.(my OS is Windows Xp)

Since this has been confirmed in DEV300_m21 on WinXP, I'm confirming this issue.

Optimally, we need the extra-table references to be maintained. Until we can do this, maybe we need a 
warning about transposing table-sections with external references. :(
