Description Alan Rickard 2014-05-24 23:50:49 UTC
When inputing phone numbers into a database the numbers always change to (214) 748-3647. It seems this input has been highjacked by Level3 VoIP in Dallas, TX. The database will not accept any other phone number.

Please install a more recent version of LibreOffice--4.1.6, 4.2.4, or even the current beta1 of 4.3.0, and provide complete Steps to Reproduce.

1) There is not enough information in the initial bug report to event attempt to reproduce :

- which database ? - embedded hsqldb, mysql, postgres, Mac addressbook, some other db engine ?
- how is it connected : LO provided driver, some other extension or a jdbc / odbc connector ?
- what exactly is being attempted - detailed instructions need to be provided.

The test needs to be carried out on a recent production version of LibreOffice.

As this report has received no reply from the original poster in nearly a year, it is highly likely that it will be closed shortly.
