Would like to suggest a small feature that is used in ms xl. It goes like this :
When we use a xl file which get refresh via links to other files, the new values will get updated in the file. (Up to this far its ok with Calc.)
Problem occurs when when we send that file to another person which do not have the link files on his computer; that person was not able to see the value, instead it says macro error on those fields.
But when we open the same file in "ms xl" it shows the values without error, only thing that he cant do is refresh the document. Even he refresh it, document want change the values.
it's a good feature as the accountant will have the original files and they are confidential, so what he send to the executives is just a updated link file. Problem arose when we install the libre office as it
does not have this facility that they have practised for long.
Hope I managed to explain it correcly. would be ver benificial if you could add this feature to calc.
Also i have checked the data pivot in calc new version and now we can add more than 8 field in the database.
One other thing if we can improve the look and feel of it, by putting some smooth icons in too bar will be more attractive.
We are using libre office in more than 300 computers now. and no complains. only this accounts people are complaining.

So, for a successful large deployment it is recommended that you pay
for enterprise support - that has a couple of benefits: first you help
indirectly fund the improvement of LibreOffice, and because of that you
can get your specific feature requests and bugs dealt with. Faliing a
support contract, you could contract individual features with local
