[Solved] Module fields don't save configuration

Postby simonesilenzi » Tue Jul 14, 2020 4:29 pm

Hello everyone.
I have a pretty serious problem with using the calc modules field. Any module I use and configure works perfectly until I close the application (obviously saving everything). Once the file is reopened the form fields lose all configuration information, linked cells, default values and other, so it is impossible to use them.

Someone has the same problem and knows a solution.

Thank you

(I apologize for any differences on the names of the options, I use the Italian version).

In which format do you Save?
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.9 on Xubuntu 20.04.1 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

Always use the international (ISO) standard ODF file formats (.ods for the spreadsheets). You will lost some formatting properties and features when you save your documents into foreign, obsolete, never standardized file formats like the MS binary .xls file format.

The newer version of the MS Office can open the ODF file format documents.

And the AOO/LO is free for your collegues too. :)

Everybody except myself seems to know the "calc modules field".
I asked my search engine for "calc modules field", and got one closely related hit: This thread.

Might somebody be so kind to undeceive me, please?
