Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-1642) Editor Note:Section: 17.289 form:list-source

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-1642?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=11964#action_11964 ] 

Patrick Durusau commented on OFFICE-1642:

Hmmm, but doesn't the new listing make the definition of form:list-source incorrect?

It currently reads: "The form:list-source attribute specifies the source used to populate the list in a list box or combo box. The first column of the list source result set populates the list."

OK, but then the new list for form:list-source-type says that form:list-source specifies:

1) the name of a query
2) an SQL statement
3) an SQL  statement that is passed through the application
4) the name of a database table, whose content is used
5) the name of a database table, whose field names are used
( the last entry, value-list, does not concern form:list-source)

The name of a query is not a source nor are the SQL statements. At least not in the sense that I understand the term source. 

Ah, perhaps *method* used to populate the list in a list or combo box? 

That would work for the first three but not as well for the name of the database items. 

There is something that continues to elude me on this one. Perhaps there is an implied query lurking under 4 and 5?
