Bug ID: 115587
           Summary: USP: spreadsheet functionality inside formal documents
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: LibreOffice

This is a suggestion for an enhancement that would truly distinguish
LibreOffice from the Microsoft suite. I work in aerospace, where we often have
formal documents containing large tables of data from which we would like to be
able to automatically generate statistics and metrics. Support for Excel-like
features (sorting, filtering, counting, ...) in Word tables is very limited,
but at least the tables can be formatted nicely for printing. Data in Excel
can't easily be presented in a nice document style (title page, table of
contents, etc.). And embedding large Excel sheets in Word is a world of pain.
So if LibreOffice could combine "live" Calc-like functionality with Writer-like
document creation, in the one application, it would beat Word+Excel hands down.
OK, holding my breath now...
