Description Mike Kaganski 2021-03-03 14:25:24 UTC
Lotus, dBase and DIF filter options are described in https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/DevGuide/Spreadsheets/Filter_Options. It would be great to have a dedicated help page for this, with the description plus a couple of examples: for importing with parameters, and for exporting with parameters. This page should be linked from respective entries at https://help.libreoffice.org/latest/en-US/text/shared/guide/convertfilters.html.

Well, this page may be extended instead of creating second page; just add a "setting the parameters from command line" section there with what is proposed here? Would it be better?
