So far nobody has come up with a reason for me to switch to a database where I risk loosing data if I attempt to make a change to the layout. -- View this message in context: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Date-will-not-format-or-sort-when-imported-into-calc-ods-tp4004907p4007154.html Sent from the Users mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
Simply because all you have is a database excerpt in plain text.You never asked for flexibility. You asked for data integrity (keep the exact same date encoding when saving back to a database file). You do not want to use *flexibility*. What you ask for is automatic formatting on import. Yes, the Base component helps to import database data into preformatted spreadsheets and Writer documents. Base is *not* a database program. First and foremost it is a bridge to import various types of tabular data into preformatted documents.
