Invoking a dialog from a macro to insert text into a Writer document

Hi guys:
 I work on a call center and everyday I aswer about 20 call with the exact requirements, so I thought about
making a macro to speed things up. The procedure is this, normally I copy some text from a web page and paste
it on a text document, I read the text to the client and write down the answer (I.E: Phone line active?, yes).
  I was reading Andrew Pitonyak’s OpenOffice.org Macros Explained (OOME) and on page 606 he explains how
to invoke a dialog from a macro. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but everytime I try to run the macro to
invoke the dialog I got "BASIC runtime error.An exception occurredType:
com.sun.star.container.NoSuchElementExceptionMessage: ." pointing to line 15
"DialogLibraries.loadLibrary("Template")" 
What I'm trying to do is this, a macro to invoke a dialog with 3 buttons (Enable Services, Disable Services,
Call Retrieval). When I push a button I call another dialog with buttons that represent all the questions a
ask the clients (I.E, when I push "Enable Services" I invoke a dialog with all the questions related to the
process to enable aditional services "Phone line is active?", "What is your OS?", "Do you have an AV
installed?"). 
The use case is this, a call is answered, I take the personal data and then I execute the macro, the macro call
the dialog, in the dialog I click button "Enable Services" and it bring the second dialog, when I click the
buttons "Phone line is active?", "What is your OS?", "Do you have an AV installed?" the macro should end and
I should have writed down on the document the questions "Phone line is active?", "What is your OS?", "Do you
have an AV installed?" 
I already design the dialogs, but I can't invoke the first dialog from the macro, or the following dialogs
after clicking the buttons, and I don't have any text written down on my document... 
Any help on this is highly appreciated.

Is it possible to freeze the left and right parts of a spreadsheet (as
opposed to the upper and lower parts, which I know you can do)?

Thanks

Re: Tab defaults change when pasting into Writer from some other applications

Sorry for the delay in responding.  Too many other things going on.

Base Relationships: Update cascade not working

Hi,

I am trying to change some Primary Keys in my main table, and get the
changes to be reflected in several Foreign Keys.
I have gone into Tools |
​ ​
Relationships, have set up the 1 to n connections between the tables and
​chosen "Update cascade".

However when I open the main table and attempt to change a Primary Key, I
get the message "Referential integrity constrain violation".  I thought
that "Update cascade" would override this.  Have I missed something, or is
it a possible bug?

Thanks,

Noel

Macro to abandon edits

I'm migrating a bunch of spreadsheets from Debian Lenny/Openoffice to 
Debian Wheezy/Libreoffice 3.5.x. This is a dedicated setup used by many 
once-a-year users (who aren't chosen for their familiarity with 
computers) and, for instance, boots straight into a front end when 
switched on and shuts down when you close the front end. All driven by a 
startup script which launches the front end and waits for it to close.

The front end is fundamentally some buttons to launch working sheets and 
unchanging except that today's date is filled in when it starts, or the 
user can enter a different date. Mass of macros to handle it all.

Closing the front end is by doc.close()ing in a Goodbye macro but this 
leaves an soffice.bin process running and you get a 'Program is still 
running' dialogue box when the machine shuts down; it goes away after a 
bit but it will alarm the user. I can get rid of that by putting 
'stardesktop.terminate' (is 'xdesktop.terminate' preferrred?) in the 
shutdown macro but then when it next starts it wants to Recover the 
front end; that's a big no-no.

Under Lenny/Openoffice there isn't this problem, when you've 
doc.close()d it shuts down happily and when it's next switched on loads 
the front end without complaint. I've tried doc.setmodified(FALSE) but 
no joy. I suppose I could get the shutdown macro to save it and the 
startup script to then delete that and copy the master back but that's 
pretty horrible. Is there a sensible way to fix this?

Extensions Basic Runtime Error

I have searched Bugzilla and haven't found anything that comes close to
the issue I am experiencing. So before I start destroying & rebuilding
my extensive profile and maybe filing a new bug, I thought I would ask here.

I have 35 extensions (including 2 special dictionaries) installed.
Roughly 12 of them call oLibContainer.LoadLibrary(LibName) which
terminates with a "BASIC runtime error. Type:
com.star.container.NoSuchElementException" error. See:
http://www.mediafire.com/view/1ddd9fd2gkwa4ie/BRT_Error.png This screen
capture is just an example of the error from the "Alternative searching
1.4" extension.

Now the really weird thing is that if I keep LO (any module) open and
reinstall those same extensions they work perfectly, until the next time
I start LO.

This started happening when I first moved up to 4.3.0 and continues
through to 4.3.3  on a Win 7 Ult-x64 box. I am not so much looking for a
fix or work-around, more to find out if anyone else has experienced
anything like this.

TIA
Dave (miserably looking forward to rebuilding his precious profile) Barton

Recommended version of Java?

Hello,

Is there a page somewhere that specifies what version(s) of Java are
supported for what versions of Libreoffice?

Specifically, is Java8 fully supported for version 4.1.x? 4.2.x? 4.3.x?

Thanks

request

I would like to see updated announcements in official Libreoffice Google+
account https://plus.google.com/+libreoffice/posts, Maybe I am repeating
myself,but official Libreoffice Google+ account is not updated constantly-
very probably it is a bug- Few examples: The last two posts by Document
Foundation about bug hunting session and release of two new versions of
libreoffice, when they were published in Blog of Document Foundation it was
automaticly published within few seconds on Facebook and Twitter but on
google+ nothing and it is for a long time now. So I would like to ask for
help from who has the official rights to put missing posts on Google+ and
try to repair the connection between Google+ and official blog of Document
Foundation. Keep on your excellent  work guys.
With the best regards
                        Tomáš Matýs

Installing LO versions to run in parallel on the same computer


       Hi, I've tried installing the secfix version of LO to run in parallel with the version I generally use
(on Windows 7). The instructions in the link were unclear (or just plain wrong), but I did finally manage
to get the installer to complete, apparently successfully, i.e. the installer "wizard" reported that
install was OK and the files appear to be there, but when I try to start  it up it crashes with the error
    "Application Error: The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)"
Does anyone have the explanation (and hopefully also the remedy) for this?Thanks,/Gary
