Short translation is that there is a patent claim which references to
PivotTable as trademark of Microsoft Corporation. Within the last
years this was always named as reason why OOo needs to use the term
"Datapilot" - I have no idea if (and how) this situation did change
recently. In fact there might be an agreement between Oracle and MS
which covers OOo .. but surely not LibO.
Any ideas on this?
Well, the people at Sun were right.
PIVOTTABLE is a registered federal US trademark, assigned to Microsoft Corp.
It is also registered at least in France.
At the European Community Trademark Office :
and no doubt elsewhere in the world.
what about calling it "Kreuztabelle"
in Ooowiki it is used as synonym
i also could imagine
to create simply a simple better word
e.g. in ORACLE PL/SQL the keyword GROUP BY is used to achive a data aggregation
even in MS Excel most people dont like Pivot Tables cause "Pivot" sounds complicated
so lets call it Mapping, Datamining, grouping, dynamic linking, data relation mining, data relation
something understandable with positiv vibrations ;-)
