OpenOffice (insert field) problem.


Hi guys,

I'm currently having a problem with OpenOffice Writer, especially the part of inserting page numbers and time and so on. When i try to insert something, the following results pop up.

Insert Time: Time(Fixed)
Insert Page Numbers: Page Numbers
Insert Subject: DocInformation:Subject

so on and so forth. However, when I tried to copy the Time(Fixed) part from Writer to this dialog box, I got the current time instead.

So it might be a script problem, but I'm not sure how to fix it.

Anyone?

When I copy a fixed time nomatter what happens it always stays as the original time. If I insert the current time then this is updated each time I copy and paste it. The behaviour seems correct to me (openoffice 2.3.0).

time/printng

Do you have root access? The clock can only be changed by root as it is central to how the computer works.Possibly I am telling my grandmother how to suck eggs but the clock come display arrangements can be confusing to us lesser mortals.

open office. insert problem

Just tried to recreate the problem and it worked fine using the icons within open office from the 'view' menu, 'insert fields'. Are you copying and pasting from the taskbar? Or using an old verion of Open Office? Also you can insert page numbers on their own.

Fred.

2.4.1, definitely the latest version.

"View Menu"? I'm not using the view menu, strangely enough, hmm.

I'm using "insert", "fields" "page numbers".

Strangely enough, when i delete the .openoffice folder, it restarts okay, but after a while it just goes back to how it was "page numbers" and all that.

insert field

Ok, so it's your pre-writtern document, at least I assume so. The time of it, would for obivious reasons, can only be overwrittern if the mechine date is changed.I am no expert ( as you may have guessed) and others may have a better way of getting round this.

Fred
