Description miraceti52 2008-09-13 13:43:24 UTC
I have a spreadsheet which I merge with a form letter. 
I use the File -> New -> Database options to create a database from my spread
This works fine, but when I view the tables that have come from my spreadsheet I
find that for some not all!! rows some data is missing.  

Now I use 2 sheets in the spreadsheet, one is my main working sheet (sheet 2)
the relevant data is copied into sheet 1 using the Paste Special option to
ensure no formulae, formatting etc. are copied into Sheet 1.  

When I look at Sheet 1 in Calc it is perfect, all data is present.  But when I
view the same sheet in the View Datasources I find that for some rows only, the
data is missing after  column J.

I am using OOO2.4.1 in Ubuntu(64bit) on a 64bit Dual core processor

I used a copy of OOO3 rc1 on an xp machine, duplicating the procedure outlined
above and it worked perfectly, the merge completed with no lost data and all
data was visible in the View Datasources.

So it's probably not a major issue at all as I imagine most people will move to
OOO3 when it is released.

In i35178 you'll find a note like ok in fmebugs04.
That means the fixed is integrated in OOo3.0
