OpenOffice server mode macro

Post by Milton2314 »

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

start soffice.exe -headless -nofirststartwizard
-accept="socket,host=localhost,port=8100;urp;StarOffice.Service"
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 4.1.12 on Xubuntu 20.04.4 and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
