OpenOffice server mode macro

Postby delsteinwe » Sat Sep 28, 2019 9:28 am

I'm trying to run xls files on an open office server on Windows.

I start the oo in server mode with the following bat:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
start soffice.exe -headless -nofirststartwizard

The server is used by a Java application.

The problem is that the macros of the given xls file don't execute.

Does anyone have experience with this? i have no idea about that please give me a proper solution for this

Have you made sure the macros can be run by OO and don't need to be rewritten? ... _macros%3F

Even if those VBA macros could be run (which is unlikely), it would be a severe security issue if they would start automatically. MS Office documents are the most important source of infection for some of today's most harmfull ransom ware.
