I have been trying out the new OOO2 for a while now but have stumbled at a couple of fences, and find that the old version does me proud.
How many people prefer not to switch to ooo2

Which 2.0.x version have you been using? 2.0.1 is a really big improvement on 2.0.0. What sort of problems have you been having with it?

If you don't want to move to OOo 2.0 then what about 1.1.5? It is more than just a big fix release as it can read OpenDocument.

Specifically I have had difficulties opening my bank statement which arrives as an xls with a lot of HTML attached. Then old version ignors that and lets me work with the data while the new doesnt.
Also I find that DataPilot in OOO2 doesnt seem to allow me to add to the data range which is the source of the table. As it all works fine with ooo1 ......

I havent checked out OOO2.1

You mean it's possible to change the source range like you can change the source range of a chart? I could not find this option in my 1.1.4.

I have a large set of data that I investigate using DataPilot. In the older version I simply insert rows and they are included in the next "refresh" . I dont say that the new version doesnt do it but rather that I get a message and it doesnt work. For my important things I dont have extra time to learn how to fix something that still works in OOO1

Mmmmh,
Just another issue I can not confirm, like many others in this forum.
Most surprising to me is this one: http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=31065

When I define some used range as pilot-source, I can extend this range by inserting new rows. Normally I define the entire columns as source and check option "Ignore blank rows".
