Description Martin Marmsoler 2020-08-17 16:45:37 UTC

I would like to link a calc table (format and content) into a writer document, but the table should still be linked to the calc table. I didn't find a solution to do that. 

- HTML table looks very good, but does not have an option to keep the link to the calc file
- DDE Link is not a solution, because the document should be printed to pdf and the hyperlinks inside the table should still work.

Comment 1 Dieter 2020-12-11 11:57:15 UTC
Martin, I can add table as OLE Object and add link to the original document with Insert => Hyperlink

Hi Dieter,

thanks for your answer, but this solves not my problem. I created some files (A Textfile where the table is included, a spreadsheet with the table and the exported Textfile as pdf. Hopefully it is more clear then.

I already asked a while ago here: https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/259966/formatted-dde-link-from-calc-to-writer/

So it seems there is no way to do that
Comment 8 V Stuart Foote 2020-12-12 16:30:49 UTC
So, isn't this a PDF export filter request?

The OLE content, URIs from a Calc sheet, are not being filter exported from Writer to PDF?
