I am newbie with Open Office and had learned about it just a day back. My requirement is to integrate the Open Office in my application. Actually I want to create/edit open office document file using my VB.Net code. but I had a problem I didn't get the CLI dll (assembly). Can you help me about that Please tell me how I can get CLI dll in my project as well as how to create open office document file using my VB.Net code?

Maybe you have a look at the wiki about UNO bridges. The phrases that they use there is not very familiar to me. But that might be because I never worked with .NET and CLI. wrote:(This bridge should be preferred over the OLE Automation bridge, as it offers more complete functionality.)

Despite of this sentence my understanding is that you can use the UNO/CLI bridge only with C# while you will need to fallback to the COM Automation if you are using VisualBasic (even with VB.NET). But read this with care as I am a complete novice in this area.

There are several macro languages in OOo, but none of them is called Visual Basic or VB(A)! Please call it OOo Basic, Star Basic or simply Basic.
