Description Lionel Elie Mamane 2013-08-12 14:18:01 UTC
Consider attachment 83968 [details]

Compare rows April Prime and April Secundo.

Why does the second column of April Prime display the office:value,
but in April Secundo the <text:p> child? The only difference between
the two is the order between the <text:variable-set> and the actual
PCDATA (text). Surely that should not make any difference.

I see:

April Prime	4	text content 
April Secundo	text content  	text content  
August Prime	8	 
August Secundo	o:s-v	text content  
August Tertio	o:s-v	text content 

But I don't know, how to comment on this..

Comment 2 Michael Stahl 2015-02-03 09:31:00 UTC
this was introduced because report-builder depends on it,
so there is a horrible hack in SwTableBox::IsValidNumTxtNd()
to interpret a paragraph with variable-set fields at the beginning
of it as "numeric", which does not make much sense as such...
