OpenOffice server mode macro

Postby Milton2314 » Wed Feb 06, 2019 9:31 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

Macros to run on Excel (.xls files) do not run on OpenOffice - there are different underlying engines.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.8 on Xubuntu 20.04.1 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
