This Basic code from an old post works for me.
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Sub InsertEquationAtViewCursor'(oDoc, sFormula$)
  Dim oVC
  Dim oObj
  oDoc = ThisComponent
  sFormula = "x over y"
  oVC = oDoc.CurrentController.getViewCursor()
  oVC.gotoRange(oVC.getEnd(), False)
  oObj = oDoc.CreateInstance("com.sun.star.text.TextEmbeddedObject")
  oObj.CLSID = "078B7ABA-54FC-457F-8551-6147e776a997"
  oObj.AnchorType = com.sun.star.text.TextContentAnchorType.AS_CHARACTER
  oVC.Text.insertTextContent(oVC, oObj, False)
  oObj.EmbeddedObject.Component.formula = sFormula
  End Sub

Python code should be very similar.

thanks but the line:
oObj.AnchorType = com.sun.star.text.TextContentAnchorType.AS_CHARACTER
is not recognizing com

I think you have to import the AS_CHARACTER
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
from com.sun.star.text.TextContentAnchorType import AS_CHARACTER

I can't find a code example at the moment and I have to go. Try a search and I will be back later.

Looking at some old code, you should put
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
from com.sun.star.text.TextContentAnchorType import AS_CHARACTER

at the top of your code and set
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
oObj.AnchorType = AS_CHARACTER

farther down in the code.
