Description edonkey2001-libreoffice 2014-04-07 22:31:40 UTC
Currently .csv tables are imported read-only in Base, there's no GUI to import them read-write
A SQL option exist:

CREATE TEXT TABLE "Example" ("ID" DATA PRIMARY KEY);
SET TABLE "Example" SOURCE "Example.csv";

but no graphical way to accomplish this same task

Don't know if it would be a good idea to make this connection reachable through the GUI. Only people who know about the problems of integrity of databases and would never touch the *.csv-file and work a little bit in it with a text-editor should be able to use this files.
Normal user should better use a system where the integrity of the data couldn't be touch of such a simple way.

I set this bug to new, because the functionality isn't there yet. But I won't vote for such a functionality.
