Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-05-05 03:52:10 UTC
Steps how to reproduce with parallel installation of Master "LOdev 3.6.0alpha0+  – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) ENGLISH UI [Build ID: 35ec153]" (tinderbox: Win-x86@6-fast, pull time 2012-05-02 06:53:41)

1. open Sample
   From "Bug 49520 - EDITING: CRASH when undo sort with chart"
   (you may delete chart and save with new name)
2. click into cell A3
3. Scroll to end of values using vertical scroll slider
4. <shift+click> C147 to select A3:C147
5. Menu 'Data -> Sort -> Top to bottom - all otheroptions unchecked - 
   Column B - Ascending' <ok>
   Expected: Values column B sorted ascending, column "control" unsorted
   Actual: I seems as if columns A and be of sort area have been interchanged
           as for a 'Sort -> Left to right -> Column 3

Further tests seem to show that indeed a sort will be done for the last selected 'Sort - Horizonally" row in sort criteria selector.

This problem may be the root for Bug 49520

Was ok with 3.5.3, so Regression

I have an idea what is going wrong here. Albert's rework switched to a temporary variable for ScSortParam which might hide the changed settings.

I will look into this one.

@Rainer: You might cc me in all bugs related to database and named ranges except if they are also related to pivot tables.
