New Report Designer i76758 At the moment OpenOffice.org Base supports only very limited report functionality. This document describes the user interface to design a report by hand.

New option: Load printer settings with the document i76855 Load Printer Settings with the Document Option OOo stores and restores printer settings with a document by default. In an enterprise environment with always available printers (i.e. around the world) this could result in printing a document on the other side of the world. Therefore a new option is added to suppress loading document printer settings on loading a document. Frank Loehmann (FL) speclink framework

The selected print range or sheet is empty.' is shown, if nothing is printed, e.g. if the document, selected sheet or print range is empty.

Division by zero #DIV/0! error displayed for certain functions, #NUM! displayed for illegal floating-point operation errors i47644   feature-info:
Introduced a new error code 532 to distinguish division by zero errors from the more general illegal floating-point operation with error code 503. A more user-friendly #DIV/0! instead of Err:532 is displayed. The illegal floating-point operation now displays #NUM! instead of Err:503. This should be reflected in the online help under "error codes;list of". The list of functions resulting in #DIV/0! includes, but may not be limited to: division operator / if the denominator is 0 VARP with less than 1 argument, e.g. only empty cells in a range STDEVP with less than 1 argument VAR with less than 2 arguments STDEV with less than 2 arguments AVERAGE of nothing AVERAGEA of nothing KURT of nothing ZTEST of only 1 point SUBTOTAL with functions average, stdev, stdevp, var, varp as above LOGNORMDIST with stdev=0 STANDARDIZE with stdev=0 NORMDIST with stdev=0 The #DIV/0! error is also exported to MS-Excel so that a recalculation doesn't flip from #NUM! to #DIV/0! anymore.

Dynamic ranges as formula results in validation lists i56566   feature-info:
Calc now supports dynamic ranges as formula results in validation lists, menu Data.Validity, pick "Cell range". Previously, only directly entered range references such as A1:A5 or defined names that simply (recursively) evaluated to a range were supported. Now also a formula that evaluates to a range or an array can be entered, such as INDIRECT(A1) if A1 contains a string that evaluates to a range, such as B2:C3. Defined names are deeply evaluated now and don't need to be defined to a simple range, a formula returning a range or an array here is fine as well. This makes it possible to define a name to a complex formula that calculates a rectangular area and enter that defined name in the validation dialog. The restriction that a range has to be exactly one column or one row was removed. If a two-dimensional area is given, the elements in the selection list are listed row-wise if not sorted. If the range or formula calculation results in an error, that error is displayed as the only value of the selection list box. The hint displayed below the Source edit field was adapted to "A valid source can only consist of a contiguous selection of rows and columns, or a formula that results in an area or array."

'Old' mail merge dialog now supports output to single file i76853 Rework Simple Mail Merge Print Dialog The simple mail merge dialog is often used to print already present mail merge documents. The new mail merge wizard seems to be overloaded for those existing mail merge documents. The feature to save the mail merge in a single document is not implemented yet for this old dialog. This specification defines how this feature gets integrated into this dialog. Frank Loehmann (FL) speclink word processing
Soft page break i78650 The ODF 1.1 allows the export of soft page breaks. A soft page break is a page break that has been inserted by a page oriented processor like Writer at a position where the document itself does not include a page break (e.g. paragraph attribute page break before/after).
