Hi, I have a problem that needs solving where we use OpenOffice 1.1.4 templated reports and programmatically export them to PDF. The team who create the templates have recently changed the header image and some images in a table to background images (before they were just inserted) since this change the current program is not creating the PDFs with the images. We can export from OpenOffice manually and the images are included. Can anyone help with a change I may need to make to get these background images included please?

The current code:


Thanks in advance

After setting the loading property Hidden to false the sxw file actually opened during the application run, this meant that when the file was exported to PDF the background images were also included. Its a shame I can't find another solution where the file can remain hidden but at least I have something that works.
