Description Andreas J. Guelzow 2001-11-22 06:43:46 UTC
This problem is similar tot eh two-byte japanes sheet name problem
discussed on the gnumeric list:

Rename a sheet to "A,1"
choose Correlation Analysis tool
select a range on the sheet A,1
since the sheet name is not quoted the okay button doesn't become active.


	static char quote_chr [] =
	{ '=', '<', '>', '(', ')', '+', '-', ' ', '^', '&', '%', ':', '/',
	  '*', '\\', '`', '\'', '´', '\0'};

doesn't include ','


we should rewrite sheet_name_quote such that all characters but
alphanumerics cause quoting. (This may also solve the japanese two-byte
Comment 1 Jody Goldberg 2001-11-22 07:17:35 UTC
Good idea.  This also demonstrated a bug in the original routine.
I'll commit the patch shortly.
Comment 2 Andreas J. Guelzow 2001-11-22 15:12:03 UTC
You may or may not have noticed that your patch doesn't fix the
described situation. It did fix the similar situation for the t-test
tool  or any situation expecting a single range. There is another bug
  in the global_range_list_parse code: it doesn't differentiate
between commas in sheet names and elsewhere.  

I have fixed that bug and will be sending you a diff shortly.
