Description

Rick Reeves reported a problem when creating a package with an Excel datafile.
Attribute information is entered manually (since Morpho cannot parse an Excel
xls binary), but no data table is displayed when the wizard is completed. [Only
a somewhat cryptic message is printed in the table display region.] With no
table, however, there is no way to see the attribute metadata! (other than using
the View/Print menu item which shows all parts of the metadata).

We need a method for displaying attribute metadata when it exists, even if the
table itself cannot be displayed. [Sid suggested displaying the column headers
even if we cannot show the table data.]

Actions #1

Updated by Dan Higgins almost 19 years ago

Revised code to create an 'empty', non-editable table even when the format of
the data cannot be read and displayed. Metadata information (attributes) are
used to create the headers of the table. This allows one to see metadata for
binary (e.g. Excel) files.
