AutoCorrect import macro? 2008 version

Postby rmdemi » Mon Jun 30, 2008 10:39 pm

Orijinal topic is here; http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=40170&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight= code created by patb and Zarius Thanks :)

At this point we need, adress http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/Customization/ExportAutocorrect.htm instructions from this site download Autocorrect.zip, with autocorrect.dot create word backup copy autocorrect list document.


autocorr.odt
writer auto correct import macro document
(18.89 KiB) Downloaded 1084 times

I tested in Pardus(Linux), WindowsXP OOo2.4.X
With this file click the import button with macro opens, file open dialog select word backup document . Done. File has using instructions in English and Turkish.

I made some code modifications;
* Calc section, cut, copy, paste sections canceled. No more file operations.
* Now detectlocale function converts two byte locale strings to five bytes correct forms. Such as fr, tr to fr-FR, tr-TR
* File picker dialog added for selection backup word file
* If user hasn't acor_xx-xx.dat in user path macro copies it from OOo share path.
* İf writer has same autocorrect entries like word These entries doesn't insert to writer.

Here is the whole code;

It doesn't work for me. It goes through all the steps, and reports success, but there is no change to my list of autocorrect entries.

Thank you, nonetheless, for the effort. I feel we are 90% of the way there. Possibly I am just missing a step. But it looks like it is all working as intended.

Hello Raywood,

In linux cr and cr-lf is a problem for this macro, now I modified macro try this version please. I tested it with kubuntu livecd KDE 4.0 and OOo 2.3 .
autocorr v1.odt
newer version
(17.7 KiB) Downloaded 1118 times


If you have problem with this file, also you can mail to me. :D

Note: İn linux macro must create /home/user name/openoffice.org2/user/autocorr/acor_xx-XX.dat file. If you open documentlist.xml you can see chances.

I tried both of these macros & neither one worked for me operating Vista (ughh!). As in the above post, the macro ran fine & said my autocorrect file had been imported but when I restarted OO the autocorrect files had not been changed. At least this macro runs on my machine though. Is there a similar macro for importing the MS Word custom dictionary into OO?

Thanks

Hello March,

I think vista and OOo are buggy.

Please let me know:

In OOo Tools>Options menu way in Paths --Autocorrect tree way.. What is the your user path? ( It is per user operation )
after macro process there do you have acorr_xx-XX.dat. ?
is Installed Openoffice local country same your Vista local? and what is your local country?

If you know about macro ide:
Plase open module1 insert a code breakpoint to the line 134 after then run the macro.
When macro stopped at this line, you can see documentlist.xml in writer. Check file inserted lines from word"s autocorrect backup list.

Cheers..

I'm using WinXP and again I got the same result as March. The macro seems to be going through all the steps, but my autocorrect entries are not added to those in OO Writer.

The path in OO Writer is /home/ray/.openoffice.org2/user/autocorr. In that folder, I have a ZIP file named acor_en-US.dat.

In OOW > Tools > Macros > Organize Macros > OpenOffice.org Basic > Module1 > Edit, I have just this:

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

Sub Main

End Sub

That's all. Instead of OOo Basic, I also have Python, BeanShell, and JavaScript, but those all seem to require a Java runtime environment that apparently I have not installed.

I posted this under another topic, after I was directed to this one about the AutoCorrect import macro. I used the macro and below is what happened after I used it. Villeroy asked that I repost my comment with regard to the macro here.

-------------------- Original Post ---------------
Interesting... it said it worked, but I did not see any of my own custom entries, my Language is now greyed out, and the word completion tab is now empty... ?? What happened? Any idea? :?:

Hello terrae,

I'm so sorry to hear that.. :oops: You can directly delete C:\Documents and Settings\Yourname\Application Data\OpenOffice.org2\user\autocorr\acor_xx-XX.dat . So OOo continues using acor_xx-XX.dat in share directory. If your user path different from this way. You can see your user autotext path İn OOo Tools>Options>Openoffice.org Autotext view.

For debugging purpose send to me word auto correct file and your user autocorrect dat file. I can create imported autcorrect dat file for you.

Dear Raywood Is acor_en-US.dat file is correct for you? ooLocale means Openoffice local. not user locale. Check Openoffice installation path/share autocorrect/acor_en-US.dat file size with your user dat's file size. Size is bigger I think. Original file size is 15588 bytes
acor.png
Basic editor menu


You select Autocor v1 module for edit. Line 134 is oOoAcWriterDoc.Store() ' save documentlist.xml.

If you open acor_en-Us.dat with a zip editor. In documentList.xml You can see entries.

Hi Guys,
are you aware of the "OOo autocorrect entries limit bug"?

http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=87672

if you add more than 65535 entries in a single acor.dat file, OOo crashes and looses allthe stored autocorrect entries.

be aware not to pass that limit when importing long list of autocorrection...
despite being a P2 issue from 1 year and an half ago it hasn't been fixed yet

Hi, all -- another year goes by -- any progress on this? I'd really like to start using OO Writer, but I still don't know how to import my list of word definitions. I don't have 65,000 entries, so that limit is not a problem, but unfortunately the previous instructions didn't work for me.

Re: AutoCorrect import macro? 2008 version

@raywood

I've read your blog post. you did a good job.

so basically you obtained the autocorrect strings with Calc and then you pasted them into a .txt file and finally pasted in inside the documentlist.xml file.

my question is: do you know if there's a method to import those autocorrect strings inside the documentlist.xml file without opening it?

the problem is that when you have already many entries in the .xml file , opening it may take some time.

you have to decompress the acor.dat file, then locate the xml file, open it in a text editor, then paste the code from the txt file, save the xml and recompress the dat file.

maybe a macro could import the strings directly into the xml file avoiding this multistep procedure

is it possible?

ok.

by the way here's a Calc compliant formula similar to those you used in Excel to assemble the autocorrect xml strings

="<block-list:block block-list:abbreviated-name="&CODICE.CARATT(34)&A4&CODICE.CARATT(34)&"block-list:name="&CODICE.CARATT(34)&B4&CODICE.CARATT(34)&"/>"

@ rmdemi

do you think that your macro may be used to import a list of autocorrect entries which has been made on a simple 2 columns Calc sheet?

I mean:

cell A1: y3llow cell B1: yellow
cell A2: uellow cell B2: yellow
cell A3: yelloq cell B3: yellow
etc. etc.

and what about exporting OOo autocorrect list into MS Word?

can your macro be modified to run backward?
