I was watching this video: It
describes two methods to get data from a spreadsheet to a CAD table
entity. The first method uses csv from Calc, imported to CAD. The
second method is a paste special procedure with Excel (viewer) with
preservation of (a limited set of) formulas. The question concerns the
second method: Is there an easy way to achieve this with Calc without
an Excel viewer?

You can copy a range of a
spreadsheet sheet from Calc just as you could from Microsoft Excel or
the Excel Viewer. The question then is what your other product makes of
that in pasting it in. Try Paste and try Paste Special, and try whatever
options that offers. The copy from Calc will carry formulae; the only
question is whether your other product can use this properly. I'd guess
it probably would, but I don't have it to try.

BricsCAD runs on Linux too, making it, combined with Calc, a nice and
powerful combo. First thing I did after watching was trying all paste
options without success. But it is good to know that clipboard data
contains formulas.

As a second approach I unzipped a Calc file and tried to import
content.xml and got an error in BricsCAD: "Failed to find
'Workbook/Worksheet/Table' node in XML data." I guess it only expects
Excel. I will leave a comment at the blog entry...

Bruce, I tried your suggestions without success.

On the other hand: There is nothing wrong with importing cvs, it is a
working solution. And it was nice to see someone use Calc.
