Description magister_navis 2008-11-22 03:00:18 UTC
A spreadsheet on a Macintosh references many other OOo spreadsheets in the same
directory. Save with relative links in preferences is checked. When copying the
complete folder to a WinXP machine and opening the main spreadsheet the
referenced cells are showing n/a. The link to the file is displayed correctly.

BUT there is a problem with Umlauts (ü) in the filename. When editing the link
on the XP machine (delete the Umlaut and retype it) it works. Making this for
all the cells every time (over 100) takes very long time.

I noticed this defect also between NeoOffice and OOo 2.x before 3.0 was
released/in Beta state.
