Description Szilárd Vezér 2018-09-26 11:46:29 UTC
Using the (Firebird) LIST function in LibreOffice Base, the result contains various number of white square (like ⬜) characters.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Creating a table (Table)
2. Filling with some data
  ID Data
  1  11
  1  12

  2  201
  2  202
  2  203
  3  3001
  3  3002
  3  3003
3. Making a query with the following sql command:
SELECT "ID", LIST( "Data", ' / ' ) FROM "Table" GROUP BY "ID"

Actual Results:
 1  11⬜ / 12⬜ / 13⬜
 2  201 / 202 / 203
 3  3001 / ⬜3002 / ⬜3003

Expected Results:
 1  11 / 12 / 13
 2  201 / 202 / 203
 3  3001 / 3002 / 3003

Reproducible: Always

Same behavior occur with different

This "bug" is not exist in Windows7, Ubuntu 18.04, maybe only in Windows10.

test file with list query

I can't confirm because as the reporter states it works for under Ubuntu 18.04

But for anyone with Windows 10, here is an example file with a query.

No repro either with:

Comment 3 Szilárd Vezér 2018-09-27 08:46:27 UTC
A conversion of the BLOB data of LIST to VARCHAR removes the ⬜ characters...

Dear Szilárd Vezér,
Could you please try to reproduce it with a master build from http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/ ?
You can install it alongside the standard version.
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the master build
Comment 6 Julien Nabet 2019-03-06 15:58:32 UTC
On Win10 with master sources updated today, I could reproduce this.
Comment 7 Julien Nabet 2019-03-06 16:16:51 UTC
I tried to install Firebird 3.0.4 Win to give a try on Firebird directly but know too few Firebird to give it a try.
Indeed, I tested isqltool with https://firebirdsql.org/manual/isql-invoke.html
but it doesn't work.

Dear Szilárd Vezér,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
