           Summary: FILESAFE problem dBASE Format M
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: LibO 3.3.3 release
          Platform: x86 (IA32)
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Spreadsheet
        AssignedTo: libreoffice-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: linux at miro-institut.de

If you open a *.dbf document with libreoffice calc, it asks you which char-set
to choose. In my case "Westeuropa (DOS/OS2-850/international)" is ok and calc
opens the file without problems. 

Some columns have the dbf-format "M" (memo) so that more information can be
stored as compared to "C,254". This information is lost when you save the file
as *.ods. In the new file the columns of the M-format are empty, not even
truncated. Please fix the export filter. Thank you.
