Description u2nBz 2012-06-07 20:00:51 UTC
The following standard method of filtering a named range in Calc has worked for years in OO, and still does. In LO, however, the entire range is filtered out, no matter what numeric value is entered ("38" in example below).

Filtering manually works great.

oDBRange = oDoc.DatabaseRanges.getByName("DB_Range_Name")
oDBRange.UseFilterCriteriaSource = False
oFD = oDBRange.getFilterDescriptor()
oField = createUnoStruct("")
With oField
  .Field = 0
  .Operator =
  .isNumeric = True
  .NumericValue = 38
End With

Possibly related to bug 46983.

Can you give me more detailed steps to reproduce (if this is still a problem)?
I did Insert - Define - Name for row selection with numbers, including 38. I named it range.

Then I had to modify the macro like this:

Sub Rangetest
oNamedRanges = ThisComponent.NamedRanges
oNamedRange = oNamedRanges.getByName("range")
oNamedRange.UseFilterCriteriaSource = False
oFD = oNamedRange.getFilterDescriptor()
oField = createUnoStruct("")
With oField
  .Field = 0
  .Operator =
  .isNumeric = True
  .NumericValue = 38
End With
End Sub

It refuses to run. It doesn't seem to be finding the range by name, highlighting the getByName line while giving the error:
