[calc][pyuno] How to modify borders of cell range via python

Greetings

Can someone advise on how to access and modify borders of cell ranges
programmatically?  I've been attempting this using python macro scripts
without success.  I also asked at
http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/38724/how-can-one-set-the-borders-of-a-cell-range-via-python-scripting-framework/

Looking forward to some assistance.

Thanks in advance
Onyeibo

LibreOffice on the Big Screen

All:

Apache Open Office has
https://blogs.apache.org/OOo/entry/with_special_guest_star_apache which
lists some appearances of Apache Open Office on TV and movies.

Questions:
* Is/has anybody tracked instances of LibreOffice in movies or TV?
* If so, where is that information posted?

Not wondering, per se, about documentaries, such as the one that
http://youtu.be/PFowLtr39Ug is an extract of.

Wondering more about entertainment oriented material.

Rotating Text

A friend was having trouble with this in WPS Office and asked if
LibreOffice could do better.

He's printing some bridge table cards and he wants SOUTH upside down at
the top, North rightside up at the bottom, and WEST and EAST "facing
out" at the sides. That is, when each player sits at the table, he sees
(rightside up) a directional name.

Any ideas? Thanks.

linking in data from a file

AllI have an analysis spreadsheet that pulls data from sheets of
      several other spreadsheets.Under StarOffice, the technique I
      used was to open both spreadsheets, do a copy of the data in the
      source spreadsheet, go to a blank sheet in the receiving
      spreadsheet and do a paste-special with "link" specified.Under
      staroffice, when ever opened the receiving spreadsheet, it would
      automatically pull in the new data from the source spreadsheet
      even when the source spreadsheet was not open.Switch to LO and it will not link to the external data unless the
      source spreadsheet is open.I need to be able to link with out
      the source spreadsheet being open.Is there something I am doing
      wrong?A better way?I have many spreadsheets set up this way,
      so forcing a change will be painful.I have tried link to external data, but my experience(a bit
      stale, admittedly) was that if the region in the source
      spreadsheet grew since the original link was established, it did
      not pick up the newer data.greg

Downloading Libre Office

Hi,

I have been having trouble with LibreOffice; I had it downloaded and was 
using it for quite awhile and I had not updated it for a bit. 2 days ago 
it stopped working; would not open documents or the program itself.

I have tried downloading LibreOffice Fresh and Still to replace the 
original LibreOffice I had downloaded.

With both I get an error of a file being corrupt during download. This 
is the error I get:
"Error 1335. The cabinet file 'libreoffice1.cab' required for this 
installation is corrupt and cannot be used. "

Please advise me on what to do, as I need LibreOffice to work, as I have 
multiple documents I need to see.

Link to external data question

I would like to import some stock quotes from finance.yahoo.com into a 
calc sheet.

As a test I select cell A1
Insert-->Link to External Data and I get the External Data dialog
Put http://finance.yahoo.com/d/quotes.csv?s=AAPL&f=a in the URL box
The OK button stays greyed out
I hit ENTER and I get a Text Import dialog with a number in the Fields 
section

When I hit OK I am sent back to the External Data dialog, OK button 
still greyed out and when I close the dialog, nothing is entered in A1.

What do I need to do to get the stock quote entered in the cell?

Thanks,  Jim

Fwd: Proofreading problems...

It just got funnier. Last night I opened the SAME document for about the
4th or 5th time, and suddenly the comments started showing up in LO as they
should...

So, there still is something going on, but it's not like LO is losing them.
I'll experiment with this and see if I can nail it sufficiently to report
it.

Re: Impress auto bulleting

Thanks Tom and Brian for your tips...

I finally figured it out. Left click "Inside" the text box in a slide.
Then right click in the text box and select "Bullets and Numbering".
Click on the "Customise" tab. For "Number" select "None", and for
Level select "1 - 10". Click on OK. Now auto-bulleting is off for the
rest of the slides that are duplicated from that one. Only thing is,
that'll probably have to be repeated for each new Imress document. Oh
well.

Cheers,
jv
