The following process leads only to a greyed out 'OK' button:

1. Insert >
2. Link to External Data > 
3. Type:   (for example)
4. Press Enter
5. Text Import Dialogue Box
6. Click 'OK'
7. Check: Update every 60 seconds

I can't understand why Issue 1834 is FIXED althoug this feature has not been fixed 

BTW: Helo is wrong, I filed  Issue 106605 for this problem

I will not mark this issue as a DUP, becuase I beleive that this Enhancement
Request should be discussed newly. We have lots of DUPS for that issue, what
show that such enhancement would eb useful.

As you can read in help, this function "Inserts data from an HTML, Calc, or
Excel file into the current sheet as a link." not from csv source! That's
completely without any logic, but  Issue 1834 has been closed without fixing
this. There is a rather crude, unsatisfying "workaround", please read  Issue
91607 / comments from fst Wed Sep 17 16:26:02 +0000 2008. But of course that's
not with automatic refresh ...
