Subject Bug: Field Properties in Table Design dialog of Base
Date Sun, 19 Aug 2012 14:08:11 GMT
      When using the Table Design dialog to create or modify a table, 
the default value for the Length property of a given Field Type is not 
used. This occurs when a field's Field Type is change to another and 
then changed back.
      Specifically, this is true for Text [VARCHAR] and Text [CHAR].
      Examples: Create a table in Design View (opens the Table Design 
dialog). Enter a name for a field. The Field Type is automatically 
listed as Text [VARCHAR] Note the Length property. Change the Field Type 
to Yes/No [BOOLEAN]. The Length property changes to 1. Change the Field 
Type back to Text [VARCHAR]. The Length property remains 1. Change the 
Field Type to Binary [BINARY] and not the Length. Now change the Field 
Type back to Text [VARCHAR]. The Length property does not change.
      This is also a bug in LO going back at least as far as 3.4.4. A 
bug report has been filed: Bug #53591. View it here: for possible 
additional information.
