Description Mike Kaganski 2021-03-03 14:23:41 UTC
CSV command line options are described in https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/DevGuide/Spreadsheets/Filter_Options (see also bug 98153 comment 5). It would be great to have a dedicated help page for this, with the description plus a couple of examples: for importing CSV with parameters, and for exporting CSV with parameters. This page should be linked from respective entry at https://help.libreoffice.org/latest/en-US/text/shared/guide/convertfilters.html.

https://help.libreoffice.org/7.2/en-US/text/shared/00/00000208.html gives the settings for import, but again without examples or command-line options
Comment 3 Mike Kaganski 2021-03-03 16:58:24 UTC
Then likely we need a template with the command line parameters that would be inserted there... if we don't want a dedicated page. It actually might be difficult to decide where to point from https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/DevGuide/Spreadsheets/Filter_Options, if it would be one of two related, but "opposite" dialogs...

Possibly command-line parameters go here:
