Creating LO documents directly would be nice
and might have the advantage to be able to
specify some formatting --- which I might need to do sooner or later.
Formatting is a matter of style, cell styles in
this case. Linked import ranges filled with
database data can be prepared with cell styles
(I use document templates for this type of
database reports). The formatting expands/shrinks with the imported data range.
How would I do something like this with CSVs? I
guess I'd need some sort of "overlay
spreadsheet" which defines the formatting and is
then being filled with the data from a CSV file.
The fields in the CSV remain the same while the number of rows will vary
As suggested above, if you already had suitable
styling configured as cell styles, it would be
very simple to apply these styles to the data
after it was positioned. Alternatively, if you
have a document with space for the data already
formatted - which would indeed sensibly be
created from a template - you could add the data
without upsetting the formatting.
The trick here is to use Edit | Paste Special...
(or Ctrl+Shift+V) instead of ordinary Paste. If
you paste from elsewhere in the same or another
spreadsheet document, ensure that "Paste all" and
Formats are both *not* ticked in the Paste
Special dialogue; if you paste from another
source, select "Unformatted text" in the Paste Special dialogue.
I trust this helps.
