Description Frank Schönheit 2009-02-11 12:55:40 UTC
- open the attached spreadsheet document
- mark the range A1:B6
- Edit / Copy
- open a database document of your choice
- select "Tables" on the left hand side
- Edit / Paste
=> the "Copy table" wizard opens
- on the first page, press "Next"
- on the second page, move all fields to the right hand side list box, and
  press "Next"
- on the third page, press the "Auto" button

This is expected to automatically determine the fields types for all columns.
However, both the "Date" and the "Value" column still have the
"Text [ VARCHAR ]" type. Given that in the source document, "Date" is explicitly
formatted as date, and also contains only date values, where "Value" is
formatted as Number, and contains only numbers, I would say this is not the
expected result.

Comment 4 Frank Schönheit 2009-06-03 13:04:30 UTC
going to submit a follow-up issue because copying the date values does not
succeed. As far as the very original bug is concerned, it's fixed - "Auto" does
what it's expected to do.
Comment 5 Frank Schönheit 2009-06-03 20:44:36 UTC
submitted issue 102479 for the failure to copy the "Date" column data.
