Description Terrence Enger 2017-05-06 01:08:09 UTC

(1) Download and open embedded_fb.odb, attached to bug 107653
    Program presents main database window.

(2) In pane Database, click <Tables>.  Pane Tables shows Table1 and

(3) In pane Tasks, click <Create Table in Design View>.  Program
    presents window "Table Design".

    Observed : The title bar names "Table1".

    Expected : I am not sure.  Perhaps table name "unnamed1", or
               "unknown1", or "New table 1", or something like that.
               However "Table1" is not a possible name for the new

The default table name supplied when you save the table definition is,
quite naturally and rightly, Table3.

If you do a second <Create Table in Design View> at the same time, the
name in the title bar of the Table Design window is incremented to
Table2, which also happens to be wrong in this case.

This observation is with daily Linux dbgutil bibisect repository
version 2017-05-05 running on debian-stretch.

I think I remember this happening for a long time, and I have never
noticed anybody else mention the problem.  Moreover, anybody doing
real work is unlikely to create a table with such a generic name as
Table1.  So, I am setting importance two levels below the default,
giving Trivial.

At a guess, I am setting O/S = All.

Have tested with older versions. It's the same with LO 4.4 and also with LO Could be inherited by OOo.

My system: OpenSUSE 42.1 64bit rpm Linux.

I still see the problem in a local build of commit d95e400b
(2021-06-18), built and running on debian-buster.

However, after I created Table3, the title bar for the next table
creation again named Table1.
