Description Andreas Säger 2015-04-13 22:30:31 UTC
See issue https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=90580 with a detailed desctription and 2 attachments. First I thought that this is a VBA issue because the macro works after I transferring it into a StarBasic library. But then I realized that after reloading the StarBasic macro in the StarBasic library fails in the same way as the same StarBasic macro in the VBA library.
Works as expected in OpenOffice.

Created attachment 114772 [details]

-- Copy the sheets to a new document - from bug 90580
-- Create a library LibFilter and copy the modules into this library.
-- Create a database range "List" and a named range Todays_Weekday pointing to Criteria.A1:A2
-- The filter macro works as intended
-- The filter macro fails after reloading the new document (close, reopen)

The left button applies a filter based on today's English weekday name. Unfortunately, it hides all columns.
Menu:Data>Refresh refreshes the range with the intended filter.
Refreshing the range by means of an extra line of Basic code oDBR.refresh() does nothing.

- open attached file
- click button "Todays Weekday"
- data disappear
- Menu:Data>Refresh
- data appear

I confirm that the issue is still the same with my latest version The macro works with a newly created document and it fails after save and reload.
When the filter macro fails it hides away all rows of database "List". You have to do a manual refresh to show the correct filter result. A programmatical refresh does nothing. With AOO the same document macro hides the intended rows without any refresh action.

Dear Andreas Säger,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
