Description Federico Scrinzi 2015-06-08 18:10:40 UTC
In OpenOffice 4.1 I can use the DDE() function to import data from ODS or CSV via HTTP.

Example: =DDE("soffice","http://www.trentinoagricoltura.it/content/download/3069/23052/version/4/file/elenco_agritur.csv","Sheet1.A2")

This will get the CSV from the internet and import the second row in my document. It does not work with any of the versions of Libreoffice I tried (4.1, 4.2 and 4.4).

Can confirm that it doesn't work. It has never worked so it is not a regression (tested with 3.5.0). AOO might have implemented it on their own. Thus it can be copied from AOO.

Setting to enhancement request.
