Hi friends. You can download openoffice SDK for development here http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/source/sdk/index.html , They have launched the beta release, I would love to test it.
And to author Solveig: Does your book contain Automation examples, as we can do with VBA in MS Office? If yes, to what extent is it possible to automate open office products?
Thanks and Regards.

I'd like to know that also. I think we call it macro's or something like that. Is this possible in OOo and in what programming languages can those macro's be built?
Regards,
Mark

Hi,
Good link, thanks.
My book is automation-example-free, I'm afraid. Anything that could be considered programming is out of the book's scope. However, the openoffice.org lists can give you a lot of help.

You get to use the OOo macro language to write macros. It's reasonably powerful but of course it's a new language.
www.api.openoffice.org
www.ooextras.org is a grab bag of lots of stuff including existing macros.

It's a pity that I will have to learn a new language, but I can come over that problem.
