GMK:

Thanks for posting this 'updated' version of the OOCalc UDF?

I can confirm that your demo file works well in the current stable Apache OpenOffice v 3.4.1 version.

It did not report any errors. I am sure there will be a use for this script. :thumbsup:

Again, Many thanks for sharing.

I've tried to run the example but get the following error:

OOoCalc.au3 (3151) : ==> Variable must be of type "Object".:
Local $oSM = ObjCreate("com.sun.star.ServiceManager"), $oReturn = $oSM.Bridge_GetStruct("com.sun.star.beans.PropertyValue")
Local $oSM = ObjCreate("com.sun.star.ServiceManager"), $oReturn = $oSM^ ERROR
>Exit code: 1    Time: 2.335
 

Any help would be appreciated.

Yes - It's Open Office 3.4.1 on a Windows 8, 64 bit, computer.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to test on Windows 8.  Can anyone else with  Windows 8 run the example successfully?

Just a suggestion, add some error checking to the UDF functions because currently there's practically none. That error wouldn't have crashed the script if there was a check to see if $oSM was an object prior to trying to use it as one.

@DickWms - Have you tried running the script as a 32 bit process instead of a 64 bit one?

Thank you for the suggestion.  I have now tried the Run Script (x86) option but get the same error message.

I'm adding some additional error checking to the UDF.  How far into the demo do you get?

Without OOo or Libre installed, it's from the first call to _OOoCalcBookNew, as soon as it hits that it jumps to the function __OOoCalcSetPropertyValue which causes the error to appear. I'm guessing, and only a guess, that DickWms is seeing the same thing.

I just get through the line: MsgBox(64 + 262144, $sTitle, "Create a new Book")

The error seems to be called by the line: $oCalc = _OOoCalcBookNew() ;Create test file

Unfortunately, I don't have a Windows 8 machine with OpenOffice 3.4.1.  Have you tried re-installing (possibly after uninstalling) OpenOffice?  (EDIT: Make sure you do a full install, in case there are some components missing at the moment.)  There sounds like something different going on with Windows 8 that doesn't allow the UNO objects to be created.

If that doesn't work (and I know this might be asking a bit much), would it be possible to download and install LibreOffice 4.1 and test with that?

I just stumbled upon a possible cause of the problem.  It's possible that there could be a class permissions issue, in which case you'd have to go to the Component Services administrative tool.  I'm guessing you'll want to look for OpenOffice Service Manager, or something similar.

OOoCalc_Demo.au3 sems to run just fine now.

Thank you for your help.

If I may make a suggestion... It would extremely helpful if you could add the $fVisible parameter into _OOoCalcBookOpen so that we can open the book hidden just as we are able to in the _ExcelBookOpen. This makes a world of difference if someone just wants to write data to a file without actually showing the file.

I don't believe that option is possible with OOo because OOo's interface doesn't support it.

      Here the this wiki page with list of available UDFs for data compression. For my tasks I only need ZIP support, so I started looking at pure AutoIt UDFs without any 3rd party dlls. And found out that most of available realizations uses standard ("native method") Windows dll - "zipfldr.dll". So for now I chose ZIP UDF by wraithdu. I've tested it on Windows 7 (x64) and it seem works fine. But here the comment from another topic where user says that Windows 10 discontinued support of "zipfldr.dll". Now I confused. I don't have around any Windows 10 machine to tested it. So maybe someone could confirm or deny that? Or maybe would better to switch to UDF with 7zip dll?
      I need an advice...

      Here is the bare bones of a UDF I have started work on.
      Mostly just a proof of concept at this stage, and still need to add some functions and dress the UDF up a bit ... to look like a UDF ... though it has my own distinct styling, especially as I have never really developed a UDF before now .... used plenty and modified plenty though. I've even invented my own UDF variable naming convention, which I am sure some of you will be aghast at. I work with what feels best for me, but others are free to adapt if they wish.
      The idea is to emulate the simplicity of INI files, but gain the benefits of SQL.
      Two scripts are provided.
      (1) The UDF, a work in progress - SimpleSQL_UDF.au3
      (2) An example or testing script - UDF_Test.au3
      Another first for me, is creating a 2D array from scratch, never done that before, that I can recall ... never had a need, and even for 1 dimension arrays, for a long time now, I have just used _StringSplit to create them. So I needed a bit of a refresher course, which my good buddy @TheDcoder assisted me with ... not without some angst I might add. LOL
      SimpleSQL_UDF.zip  (12 downloads previously)
      (I have now completed all the functions I intended to. My next update will be a big improvement, bringing things more inline with my latest INItoSQL DB program changes.)
      Program requires the sqlite3.dll, not included, but easily enough obtained.
      Hopefully the usage is self-evident ... just change the Job number variable in the UDF_Test.au3 file to check the existing functions out.
      Enjoy!
      P.S. This is also related to a new program I have just finished and uploaded - INItoSQL DB

      Hello,
      as a start in Autoit i tried something i was missing since im using Autoit. 

      I build a custom MessageBox which has a large amount of custom options and which scales its size on the parameters you set. 

      Aviable Settings:
      -Title
      -Unlimited Buttons
      -Text Color (Buttons, Text)

      -Background Color (Msgbox, Buttons, Label) 

      -Button Timeout
      -Autoclose Timeout
      -Icon (Default, No Icon, Custom)

      -Label/ Button Style. 
      -Transparency

      I tried to keep this as close as i could to a Msgbox i was used too on my batch times.

      After i was ready i realised, @Melba23 probably build a way better msgbox which would have suit my needs enterly, anyway thanks to @Melba23 because i use his Stringsize UDF. 

       
       
      local $Message = _sMsgBox("Test", 6, "Continue?") if @extended <> -1 Then MsgBox(0, @extended, $Message&" Button pressed")

      Dear members, 
      I am working on a project where, emails from outlook are to be read and moved to various folders within the mailbox, based on the content of the emails.
      I used the below code for moving mails. It works fine when I run it against individual mail ids. But when I run it on Shared mailbox, the mails are not moved to respective folders.
      _OL_ItemMove($oOutlook, $sEntryId, Default, $sDestinationFolder) The value of $sEntryId is saved in an excel report initially. The current process reads the $sEntryId from the excel and passes it to "_OL_ItemMove" statement.
      Requesting the guidance of the forum members in this issue.
