Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-10-30 15:42:30 EDT
Description of problem:

At least on some files gnumeric is producing LaTeX output
where some used macros, more precisely control sequences,
were previously undefined.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Some inputs

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take an Excel file from an attachment to bug #137692
and save as Velvia.xls

2. Load Velvia.xls into gnumeric and save as "LaTeX" file Velvia.tex.
Filter results

   tr -dc '[:print:]\n' < Velvia.tex > Velvia2.tex

or LaTeX will be quite unhappy.
3. Do 'latex Velvia2.tex' and watch
! Undefined control sequence.
\@nextchar ...cColJ +\gnumericColK +\gnumericColL 

and so on.  The problem is that \gnumericColL, \gnumericColM and
\gnumericColN are used but only \gnumericColA to \gnumericColK
are defined.

Expected results:
All of the above are defined in output before an attempt
to use these.
