Record macro

Postby mitduffy » Sat May 19, 2018 2:43 pm

Objective- Learn how to use “Record Macro”
Plan for practice recording macro
Transfer five digits from one file named “storednumbers”, to a file named “depositnumbers”
Works correctly the first time it is run. Transfers the number from “stored number” to “deposit numbers”

If I then change the original number in the “storednumbers” file and run the macro a second time it does not insert the new number in “depositednumbers” file. Instead the original numbers remain displayed in
“deposited numbers”. Here then the Recorded Macro.

REM ***** BASIC *****

sub macrotest1
rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
rem define variables
dim document as object
dim dispatcher as object
rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
rem get access to the document
document = ThisComponent.CurrentController.Frame
dispatcher = createUnoService("")

rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
rem dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:OpenFromCalc", "", 0, Array())

rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
dim args2(0) as new
args2(0).Name = "ToPoint"
args2(0).Value = "$E$3"

dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:GoToCell", "", 0, args2())

rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:Paste", "", 0, Array())

rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
dim args4(0) as new
args4(0).Name = "ToPoint"
args4(0).Value = "$C$3"

dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:GoToCell", "", 0, args4())

end sub

Any help appreciated
