Description Alexander Wilms 2011-06-12 08:20:09 UTC
I wanted to copy and paste a table from a website into the diagram table, but all the content was pasted into a single cell. In Calc everything was preserved.

Please contribute information 
- concerning a sample table in the web
- concerning your LibO version and OS
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-06-13 01:38:37 UTC
I can't paste any data containing more than 1 cell to the chart data table.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open new Spreadsheet
2. create some data 
3. Create small diagram (see "myspreadsheet.ods" from testkit)
4. Copy / Paste diagram to text document (see "mytext.odt" from testkit)
5. Switch back to "myspreadsheet.ods"
6. Select 'B2:C13'
7. <ctrl+c> for copy
8. Switch to "myspreadsheet.ods"
9. Dobule click chart
10. context menu > Data Table
11. Try to paste data range from clipboard
    expected: Data will be replaced by identical data
    actual: all data from clipboard will be inserted into 1 cell 

Corresponding OOo bug is "enhance chart data table editing options (copy/paste ranges)"

I fully agree that bug 66233 is a dublicate of this bug.
As mentioned in comment 4 of bug 66233, problem remains still in 
I willing to contribute but cannot write source code.
This bug appears to me as a major productivity slow down.
