Should I put it up as a requested "feature tiem" on the bugzilla?


It won't be implemented because this is too far away from the intended
purpose of an arithmetic calculator. And this feature is not part of the
ODF standard, so it can't be stored in a spreadsheet file.

LibreOffice has a database component. Even if it is not a good one, it
does everything what 90% of all spreadsheet users try so desparately to
do on spreadsheets list keeping, editing through input forms, sorting,
filtering, simple calculation, pretty reporting. For all the rest, it
interfaces very well with Calc.

Yes, I did look at Base, but, would rather like to stay with Calc as there are more people who would be able to trouble-shoot on spreadsheet software that on LibreOffice Base.

Although, that being said, I am going to try to replicate the same process that I am trying to achieve with Calc at a later date, on Base; just to satisfy my curiosity of working with Base.

I am curious then, if we are holding fidelity to the ODF standard, then, how do new features come about in Calc? Would it not be a little "bleeding-edge" of LibreOffice to add a new feature to Calc to see if that particular new feature would catch on with users? This then could later be proposed as a feature add-on to the ODF standard.

Also, if a dev did show interest in working on such a feature and garnered enough support for it, would it not be adopted for Calc or at least be considered?

While such a feature does not find its roots from a mathematical perspective, it would certainly be of good use to users creating forms in Calc. For the sake of useability, it may be worthwhile to look into.
