ezodf extension and matrix datatype import

Monday 09 November 2009 1:39:30 am - 1 reply


I am trying to import an odt document using the ezodf extension.

I managed to create sections in the document and to import usual classes (articles, folders).

However, when I try to import a matrix datatype, there is no data in the created item.

In my odt document, I created a section matching the matrix name and the name in ezodf.ini. Then I added a table in the section matching the number of columns in my class.

I tried different ouput formats (openoffice 1.1 and 1.2) still nothing.

I'm using ezpublish 4.1.1

thanks for any help

Ok, I finally succeeded with the import.

When creating the table in openoffice :

- table format > text flow > enable "repeat heading"

- the first row of the table must contain the exact columns names of your matrix datatype (not the id)

Hope it helps someone else.

Should this be added to the ezodf documentation ?
