Hi Fred,

Thanks for your comments, Alex and others. One thing I didn't say is that
when I edit my original reports in OO, their hidden controls do NOT show a
'Sorting' control listed at all, and yet they run perfectly in OO apparently
without such a control. Since there is ALSO no 'Sorting' control listed when
I edit my legacy reports in LO (yet they FAIL to run), I wonder does this
mean it is NOT an IMPORT problem, as Alex suggests, but rather that a NEW
hidden control  ('Sorting') is required in LO (but not in OO)? I note that

Ah, interesting :-)) - as far as I know, no new development (as in
addition of new features) has been made to either the ORB or the
original report designer within the LO project, but I haven't checked
the git log for a while to see if there were any commits.

when I create a brand-new report in LO v5.2 using the legacy report designer
(with the Report Builder Extension disabled), the hidden control 'Sorting'
IS added, and the report runs as normal! (That's in fact how I discovered
the work-around I reported above.) Before I lodge, as suggested, another Bug
Report (under the Writer component), I'm interested in what others (with
more technical knowledge than I have) think about this. - Fred

One way to check this would be to do a comparison of the XML making up
the content.xml of the two Writer ODF files. That way, it would be
possible to see the difference between the original and the new. Perhaps
the difference lies in the use of the ODF 1.2 spec which is the default
for 3.5 - my understanding was that ODF 1.2 had some new attributes that
were possibly ignored (silently dropped) in ODF 1.1 ?
