Hit the push button which is attached to the sheet. It opens a dialog with a
date and time control. The two controls read and write the A1 cell. It works
with all versions of Libre/OpenOffice and it works correctly with different
NullDate settings. 
Function convertDateTime is designed to convert any type of date/time into
any other type of date/time.

[libreoffice-users] Re: Calculating hours using spin button - simplified - answered

2017-01-07 Thread Andreas Säger
There is a control named "DateField" writing to a cell named "DateField"
There is a control named "TimeField" writing to a cell named "TimeField"
There is a control named "CurrencyField" writing to a cell named
"CurrencyField"
etc.
Each control has a "Text Modified" event which calls the macro.
The macro checks if a cell has the same name as the calling control. If so,
it writes an appropriate cell value into that cell.

This is a dirty hack. It applies to single cells only, e.g. you can't fill
columns of time data with this.
I always recommend databases. Most spreadsheet users try to simulate
databases in spreadsheets. Spreadsheet cells are NOT the normal target of
form controls. The controls are made for database records where one control
applies to all records of a whole column.

[libreoffice-users] Re: Problems exporting and importing a dialogue

2017-01-07 Thread Andreas Säger
Importing/exporting Basic modules and dialogs is easy when you do NOT store
everything in libraries named "Standard". Use the organizer to create a
library with a distinct project name within a template, document or in
global container "My Macros"
Move dialogs and code modules into the library.
Now you can create a simple macro extension from that library. There is an
[Export] button on the "Libraries" tab of the organizer which generates a
most simple oxt.
You can also import libraries directly from documents or from library
directories. There is an [Import] button on the same tab. You may also
import libraries from extracted extensions.

[libreoffice-users] Re: Conditional formatting and named ranges issues.

2017-01-07 Thread Andreas Säger
As far as I understand the matter, the LibreOffice devs have broken the c.f.
feature. The c.f. conditions are formula expressions but they do not behave
like other formula expressions when you move, copy, expand or shrink
references. This is one of the things that still work (almost) properly with
OpenOffice.

[libreoffice-users] Re: Calc Options > Libreoffice Calc > General > Expand references when new columns/rows are inserted

2017-01-04 Thread Andreas Säger
*Without "expand references"*
=SUM(Sheet1.A1:A99)
becomes 
=SUM(Sheet1.A2:A100) 
after you inserted one new row at Sheet1, row #1. The reference moves down
one row.
When you insert one row between row #2 and row #99 the reference expands by
one row:
=SUM(Sheet1.A1:A100) 
Nothing happens when you insert directly below A1:A99 in row #100.

*With "expand references"*
=SUM(Sheet1.A1:A99)
becomes 
=SUM(Sheet1.A1:A100) 
when you insert one row anywhere between row #1 and row #100 directly below.

This applies to all formula expressions with references, namely cell
formulas, conditional format, named ranges, database ranges, chart areas,
pivot table sources, validation conditions, conditional format conditions
and form control sources (list box, combo box).

In 99% of all use cases you want this option being checked. Sometimes it can
be annoying and then it is good to know how to turn off.

[libreoffice-users] Another LO anti-feature

2016-12-21 Thread Andreas Säger
How can I disable the silly dialog that pops up after every search on
a Calc sheet? After correcting a column of 250,000 numbers it tries to write
250,000 cell addresses into a list box which takes by a magnitude more time
than the replacement process. 
If such feature is really, really desired by the Excel fans, then it should
be possible to disable it. Furthermore, such feature should be supervised by
an experienced Calc developer who knows that a search run returns a
collection com.sun.star.sheet.SheetCellRanges with interface
XSheetCellRanges having method getRangeAddressesAsString. In my case, this
method would return one string "Sheet1.A1:A25"
http://www.openoffice.org/api/docs/common/ref/com/sun/star/sheet/XSheetCellRanges.html#getRangeAddressesAsString

Make a backup copy.
Select all (Ctrl+A)
Hit the backspace key and select Objects for deletion.
Hit Ctrl+Shift+Space (menu:Format>Clear Direct Formatting...)
Same with any other sheet.
With the raw data and formulas it should make a huge difference.

Your initial question was if there is more than a viewer for Android and
now you come up with issues of taste and branding.

It is the decision of those who actually do the work.
They may find the Apache license more attractive.
They may be familiar with the old code base but not with the forks.
The "stability" (lack of development) could be attractive too.

1. You receive a file in foreign file format from email.
2. You open the file directly by double-click. In most cases you get a
read-only view on that document.
3. menu:File>SaveAs...
   File Type: Open Document Text (*.odt)
   Location: Somewhere in your documents folder.
4. Now you have your personal copy to work with in the native file
format of the application you are using which is a good thing.
5. You are done with the file and send it back via
menu:File>Send>Email as MS Office
Now you have your own working copy in your own document hierarchy, a
backup of the incoming file in your inbox and a copy of the outgoing
file in your outbox.
Next time you receive a new version of the same you start at step 1 and
overwrite the old working copy with a new working copy.

There are 5 different types of spreadsheet links. Some appear in

DDE("soffice";"path_name","ref") and URL links
'file:///path/name.ods'#$Sheet.A1 are established by formula
expressions. Before you can delete them in the links dialog, you have to
remove all formula references.

Works for me. DDE works with system notation ("C:\path name\file

"file:///C:/path%20name/file%20name.ods". Try the system notation.

which is perfectly well handled by Calc's csv importer. 90% of all text
import trouble can be answered with:
1. Choose the right locale which is English(USA) in this particular case
because of the $ currency, the point decimals and propably there are
also M/D/Y dates in the file.
2. Always check "interprete special numbers". A special number is
anything beyond digits with decimal separator. This option is obsolete
since it should be always on. You can mark individual columns as text
when you do not want them to be interpreted as special numbers. But once
the option has been checked it remains checked for subsequent csv imports.

Writer is one of them. Calc supports regular expressions as well.

I have tested dozends of different csv flavours with all types of text,
numbers and subtypes of numbers. With one exception they imported all
well. The exception was $(123.98) for a negative amount which could be
fixed with a simple regex replacing "^\$\(" with "($". Calc is an
excellent csv import tool which imports correct cell values where other
spreadsheet apps import text and try to interprete the text on the fly.

Really? And how do you convert (£1,234.98) into -1234.98 in columns 3,
17 and 23 across thousands of rows using a text editor? Are YOU able to
do this actually?
Don't you think that checking "English(UK)" and "Interprete Special
Numbers" is by far easier?

You should be able to connect a Base document to the SQLite DB. Then
your spreadsheet can access the database directly.

CSV is not a file format. It is mere convention. If you have multi-line
filds, you've got to export with text delimiters (in most cases quotes).
Everything between a pair of text delimiters can be treated as one text
value.

All 3 methods require that your locale setting matches with the data to

thousands separator and the decimal point.

Better you do not import numeric text in the first place. Wrong dates
(2/3/1999 vs 3/2/1999) and wrong numbers (1.234 vs 1,234) can be very
difficult to convert. Simply check the right locale in the import dialog
together with the "detect special numbers" option.

You could have used a spreadsheet back in the 80ies and it would be the
exact same method. Either multiply the days by 24 to get hours or change
the number format. As a third method you may separate full days from day
fractions.

A1: =PI()
=int(A1) => 3 full days
=mod(A1;1) => 3:24 (about 1/7 of a day)

A1 formatted as HH:MM => 03:23 (time on day #3)
A1 formatted as [HH]:MM => 75:24 (showing full hours)
=A1*24 => 75.4 hours

Spreadsheet dates are formatted numbers in unit "Days".
0.0 <==> 00:00
0.25 <==> 06:00 1/4 of a day
0.5 <==> 12:00 1/2 of a day
0.75 <==> 18:00 3/4 of a day
1.0 <==> 24:00 (with number format [HH]:MM)

There is no difference between the day fraction on the left and the
formatted number on the right. Both sides yield the exact same results
for all kinds of calculations and comparisons.
Multiply by 24 in order to convert days to hours and switch to some
decimal format when the result looks wrong.

Number format [HH]:MM displayes hours beyond 24 as full hours. This
number format should be used when you want to express time spans in
hours. A time span of 2 days and 3 hours (value 2.125) formatted as
HH:MM shows 03:00 (the hours at a point of time) whereas [HH]:MM shows
51:00.

The first method actually calculates the amount of hours, the formatting
solution provides a more adequate representation of time spans without
any conversion.

Open the spreadsheet document. Ensure that your data are organized as a
normalized list where numbers are numbers, dates are dates and times are
times. Quite often and for no reason, Excel sheets are poisoned with
text data which makes them rather useless. If you can not distinguish
the data types in a spreadsheet, there is no hope anyway.

Copy the normalized list of valid data including any header row.
In the Base document which is connected to your MySQLDB click the _icon_
of a target table where you want to append the spreadsheet data and paste.
A wizard pops up where you can map the fields of the clipboard data to
the fields of your database table.

This may raise 3 types of errors:
-- referencial integrity errors
-- not nullable errors
-- wrong data type errors
Each of these error types can be answered with "Cancel" or "Ignore". The
ignore option will try to import as much as possible without raising the
same error again.

Some helpful spreadsheet formulas to test spreadsheet data for consisteency:

> =MAX(LEN(column))[Ctrl+Shift+Enter] returns the max. length of a text column.
> =COUNTBLANK(column) counts blanks.
> =COUNTA(column) counts any values

=MATCH(value ; other_list ; 0) tests referencial integrity against
another table.

Macros are a no-go. Simply use parameter queries. Before you try to
concatenate an SQL statement in stupid Basic, you should test the
statement in the query designer. Then debug your Basic code. Test if the
SQL string is exactly the same string that does work in the GUI.

numbers and 2 separators into ISO strings which can be converted to real
date values.

[libreoffice-users] Re: LibreOffice Base and MySQL

2016-01-20 Thread Andreas Säger
When using HSQL (which is less powerful than MySQL) command CREATE TEXT
TABLE "Foo"(...) prepares a table "Foo" with fields and indices just
like a regular data table. A second command SET TABLE "Foo"... links the
text table "Foo" to a particular text file.
If the linked text table and the underlying csv and the target table
share the same structure with same data types in same order of columns,
I can simply drag the text table icon over the icon of the regular data
table and confirmt the import dialog without further adjustments.
If this precondition is not met or when data type conversions are needed
(e.g. text with German comma decimals and D.M.Y dates) then I create a
view to return all fields with the right types in right order and drag
the view over the data table. HSQL only accepts text data with point
decimals and ISO date/times.
With the right setup it is just a simple drag operation with no
spreadsheet involved. The setup is development work because it requires
understanding simple data types. Same problem with csv to spreadsheet
imports which will fail in most cases when you ignore the import options
because you don't understand them.

How can anybody solve any csv related problem without knowing anything about

4 different lines of perfectly valid and commonly used csv data:

1234.98;2014-12-22
1.234,98;22 Dez 2014
1234.98;12/22/14
1234.98;22/12/14

Each line carries the exact same information. I could add a thousand more
different lines with the exact same values without leaving the conventions
of valid csv.

Database admins don't use spreadsheets. MySQL can do this very well. Of

Apply master and slave fields to the subform. No macro required. For
more than A=B AND X=Y bindings, you can bind the subform to a parameter
query and link paramA=X AND paramB=Y while paramA and paramB can be used
with all kinds of functions and operators.

The topmost setting is the character encoding. Adjust it until the
preview looks right.
The second setting describes the ingoing numerals. USA for M/D/Y dates
and point decimals, UK for D/M/Y dates, German for D.M.Y dates and comma
decimals etc.
Always check the "special numbers" option.
In the preview you can override the general settings for individual
columns. In the screenshot the ZIP column is marked as text.

can inspect this text box using MRI and find out the property I need to set.

Close the _connection_ to the database.
Basic snippet generated by MRI:

When I access oObj2, fuser reports the office process owning biblio.dbf.
After closing the connection, fuser reports no process.
However, I am not sure about the side effects of connection pooling or
any other office connections to the same database (spreadsheet links,
serial letters, opened forms). IMHO, it could be that other connections
still access your database after closing the connection that had been
established by your macro.

Forget the form wizard. It is close to useless. Get the "Form Design"
toolbar. Hit the 5th button ("Form Navigator"), right-click the forms
collection and start your own hierarchy of forms and subforms with grids
and list boxes. Subforms and list boxes are the elements which help you
to edit 1-n relations and m-n relations as well.

You can store the password in the database document but the GUI does not
offer this option. The database document is zipped XML with no
encryption. If you save the user's database password in the document,
anybody with a zip tool and editor can read it.

As a professional with 35 years experience in software development you
should be able to read. If you had one drink too many, the screenshot
indicates clearly that my tool can store the log-in flag, the user name
and the passord (together with jdbc:hsqldb: connection parameters).

If you have any problem with code written by hobbyists, you may be
satisfied with this reference:

> http://api.libreoffice.org/docs/idl/ref/servicecom_1_1sun_1_1star_1_1sdb_1_1DataSource.html

which should help you to write your own code storing a password in a
database document.

Of course it does. If you are the admininstrator of that database remove
the password from your database account. If not, ask the responsible
admin to do it for you.

Anyhow:
https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=21=77543 lets
you store the "password required", the user name and the password
_unencrypted_ within the database front-end. It is definitively a
security breach.

The macro shows a dialog to connect this document with an external
HSQLDB but the upper part with registration and log-in works with all
types of databases.

XDocumentPropertiesSupplier replaced XDocumentInfo

still works with AOO and old versions of LO 3(?) but not with recent LO.
It was marked as deprecated since OpenOffice.org 2.x

works with all ODF suites since OOo 2.x. The template changer extension

com.sun.star.document.XDocumentInfo was a deprecated interface in older

It looks as if the developers removed a deprecated interface in favour
of a newer, better one without considering all dependencies. This should
not happen.

Are you sure about menu:File->Templates->AssignTemplate? I can't find

This topic is about the KDE address book in particular. LO has a
built-in driver (sdbc:address:kab) which does not work anymore because
the KDE folks added a new abstraction layer "Akonadi" between database
and client applications.

According to the German Wikipedia, Akonadi saves data in some Sqlite,
MySQL or PostgreSQL database.

> https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akonadi


Either we find a way to connect to this database (for all 3 types
drivers are availlable) or someone writes a new sdbc driver for "Aconadi".

But possibly untechnical. Did you ask how you can connect to the

Only a tiny fraction of LO users is aware of database connectivity. Most
users use Base through the mail merge wizard to connect a serial letter
with a spreadsheet. That wizard hides away the whole database thing.
Most software developers never use any office suite.

How did you formulate your question? Can you provide a hyperlink to your
help request? Did you ask for specific parameters to connect with the
underlying database?
Developers don't know anything about LibreOffice except that it has a
spreadsheet application so they recommend csv because this is what
everybody does when database data need to be used with non-database
applications.

2015-11-19 Thread Andreas Säger
For "compatibility" with something that does not want to be "compatible" at
all, you may consider SoftMaker office for Linux. The current version is
inexpensive. Its predecessor is free as in "free beer". Of course, it can
not be API compatible to any other product.
I agree that LO is on a slippery road as far as quality managment is
concerned.

I know that the following is not 100% accurate but typing commands into
terminals explains nothing.

1) Open a terminal (shortcut Ctrl+Alt+T)

2) Select the first line starting with sudo
> sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-5-0;

3) Middle-click anywhere in the terminal. If your selection included the
new-line character, the command will start running. If not, hit enter to
start the command.

4) Enter the admin password to confirm that you are a sys admin.
add-apt-repository adds a new subscription to your subscribed software
newsletters in the name of the sys admin. This implies that you trust
the maintainers of ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-5-0

Without the preceeding sudo command, just running
add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-5-0, you would get an
error message about missing privileges because you as a naked user are
not allowed to write any files outside your home directory or the /tmp
directory.

Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the second and third line.
Select and middle-click
> sudo apt-get update;
to update all your subscribed software newsletters in the name of the
sys admin.

> sudo apt-get install libreoffice
installs libreoffice from the new subscription in the name of the sys admin.

Finally,
>> sudo apt-get dist-upgrade;

Compares the latest newletters with the your currently installed
software and updates all software to the announced latest version. If
there is something to upgrade, it will prompt you for confirmation. Just
hit Enter to confirm.
You may notice that the same terminal remembers your given admin
password for some minutes so you don't need to re-enter the admin password.

Your system maintains a software database about all the files on your
system that arrived through debian packages (*.deb). It keeps detailed
records about which file belongs to which software package, which
software packages are installed, originating from which source.
Any graphical software management tools for Debian/Ubuntu/Mint/whatever
do exactly the same things in the background. I recommend to install
synaptic ( sudo apt-get install synaptic ) for a better overview over
the subscribed software, installed, not yet installed, updatable and
removable software.

There is another way to install software from manually downloaded
packages, from CDs etc. This method involves the dpkg command:

> sudo dpkg --install *.deb
or shorter but less mnemonic:
> sudo dpkg -i *.deb

installs all *.deb files of the current directory updating your system's
software database (which file has been placed where belonging to which
package). The difference is that the Debian packages were already stored
your system rather than downloaded from an external source. With this
method you install unmaintained software at your own risk. The automatic
update/upgrade mechanisms do not apply to this software, nevertheless it
will be registered at your local software database so it will not be
overidden, compromised or harmed in any way by any other software.
The typical install directory for this software is /opt. The latest
debian packages downloaded from libreoffice.org or Openoffice will be
installed in /opt.

Finally you can download and install some software freely, bypassing the
software database like you use to do on a Windows system. Sometimes they
come as executable binaries (analog to Widows setup.exe), sometimes they
come as source code which means that you need developer tools to compile
the program from the downloaded source code before installing it (or
before building your own .deb package and adding it to your sofware
database).
I use a Java program which is distributed as a zip archive. From time to
time I download the latest version and extract it to a freely chosen
subdirectory in my /opt directory.


There is no need to remove any existing ODF suite before installing
another ODF suite. There is just one conflict you need to know.
The file /usr/bin/soffice is registered to some already installed office
suite. The system will not allow you to install any software claiming
the same file /usr/bin/soffice. This is a very important feature of your
Debian/Ubuntu system. If your installation fails because of a conflict
about /usr/bin/soffice you have 3 choices:
1) Remove the old suite.
2) Move the package with "debian-menu" in the name to another directory.
This is the single package which tries to install another
/usr/bin/soffice. Without this "debian-menu-x-y.deb" your old suite
remains the default program and you can add menues and links to your
newly installed secondary suite.
3) Do the same as in 2), then switch to the other directory and install
the "debian-menu-x-y.deb" separately like this:
> sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite libreoffice-debian-menu-x.y.z.deb

This way you tell the system that it is

Being _in_compatible is one of the most important parts of the Microsoft
business model and they do a very good job making compatibility as
difficult as possible. In the end the "ordinary end user"(tm) will
always blame the vendor of the other software but not Microsoft.
Breaking this business model by a free and open and simplier document
standard is the one and only reason why LibreOffice exists.
"Compatibility" with foreign document formats allows you to convert
documents and templates to the open standard but it is not intended that
you keep on working with Microsoft documents while using another
software although this may work to a certain degree. The real trouble
starts when a crashed foreign document can't be restored and you don't
have your own backup of the file.

Regarding "compatibility" with Microsoft document formats, only MS
software can open these formats almost perfectly. In rare cases there
are incompatibilities with recent MS Office versions opening documents
from the 90ies. Documents from the 80ies are lost until you find some
converter to extract the written text at least. Some doc/xls files that
can't be opened with MS Office open fine with LibreOffice.
Second best choice regarding MS document formats is http://softmaker.de
Third best is LibreOffice.
Recent versions of MS Office claim to support LibreOffice's ODF (Open
Document Format) which is a good thing.

Virtually none of your aleged users read mailing lists. From the AOO

recommend LO when it comes to "compatibility" with the _real_ enemy or

You can click any single cell in the column you want to sort and click
one of the sort buttons [A-Z], [Z-A]. This will sort the area of
adjacent used cells.
Alternatively you can select the whole range and call the Data>Sort dialog.
And you can click a single cell and call the sort dialog which will
select the area of adjacent used cells as well.
Only one thing does not work: You must not select any part of a table
because this sorts the selected part. Spreadsheets do not have any
concept of tables. A table in a spreadsheet is what you treat as a table.

This topic looks like this in any mail client utilizing the In-Reply-To
header for threading. I think it would look the same if I would store
the mails in my inbox and watch it with some other mail client.

More than 10% of this mailing list is about the list itself. Apart from
this topic, notice the recent topic "Please do not send me a reply. My
question was solved already. I ask you sincerely." End users are not
interested in being mebers of a software fan club.

Contrary to the users of the 90ies, today's computer users do not
understand message boards nor mailing list just like they do not
understand office suites or anything that wants to be configured.

This is a server option. When you check this option in your mail client,
it will tell the POP server to keep delivered mails.

1) Store your list data in some kind of simple database:
Having the 2-column list in a text file (*.csv or *.txt), open the file
with Calc.
Having the 2-column list in a spreadsheet, make sure that the A1 and B1
contain the words "Location" and "Item" as column labels and that all
locations are numbers (Ctrl+F8 highlights numbers in blue).
Save the spreadsheet in a separate directory as a dBase file:
menu:File>SaveAs...
Navigate to your preferred directory, add a new directory, visit the new
directory
menu:File Type:dBase(*.dbf)
This file format gives various advantages for every day use.
--
2) Connect your database to the office suite:
File>New>Database...
[x] Connect to existing database
Type: dBase
Point to the directory
[X] Yes, register the database
Save the database document (*.odb) in that directory or elsewhere.
---
3) Generate a dynamic report in columnar layout:
Click the tables container.
Right-click the table therein, call the report wizard and create a
tabular report with a 3-column layout and the right sort order.
--
What is this "database document"?
Your database table is a _link_ to your dBase file. The database
document (*.odb) does not store any data. It represents the contents of
the dBase files in the given directory as a collection of database
tables. Your data are in the dBase file or any additional dBase files
stored in that directory.
Since you registered this data source you have quick access to your list
without opening anything. Just hit F4 in Writer or Calc.
The report is a Writer document embedded in that database file. It is
filled with table data every time you open the report. You can store
snapshots of this report at any time simply saving the embedded Writer
document as a stand-alone document or as PDF.

Not everyone like to use Twitter or Facebook.

Nor do I. But this mailing list is a very good example why mailing lists can
not be used for end user support efficiently.

Operating system?
Office version?
Office component? Writer? Calc? Base?
File format? doc, docx, odt, ods, xls, odb?
I don't understand how you want to dump 2 fields into 3 columns?
The term "pick list" is unclear. Listbox? Writer field of type "input list"?

Let's try to rephrase:
Using LibreOffice 5.0.2, I have a spreadsheet (*.ods) with a 2-column
list of item names and aisles numbers.
How can I include a properly sorted version of that list with a 3rd
column of ... in a Writer document?
