    The 2 programmes have different macro language so it's a complete rewrite I believe.
    If you look at the OpenOffice.org forum and do a search there's plenty of help and advice on this.

    The official OpenOffice Wiki confirms that the Macro languages differ to much, so you have to rewrite. This Wiki is not very recent, they are only talking about Visual Basic. But MS Office has changed its macrolanguage to Visual C++ from version 2007 and later.

    How big is the macro and what exactly does it do?
    If it's not too big you can copy/paste into a reply and one of us may be able to help.

    re macro

    it is a macro to input fonts with the help of a tabel and not by keyborad. The tabel has 4 columns according to 4 fonts that are music notes.

    After that, there is a field, like a layer, like a case box that you extend on the page, above the notes and you input text there, in that field, and the macro aligns automatically the text under the notes.

    Well, anyway this is the sort of program I need, but it can be written from scratch, I just want to be able somehow to do this, does not matter the software, you know? I cannot attach it here, because I need 15 posts to be able to attach.

    But I can upload them here: s1.transfer.rol.ro/111346d0a34d584e9ebd09ddbcbb0bf7.html

    You have there the macro command and the sample in a doc file but needs MS Word to display correctly.

    thanks!

    I've had a quick look at the file. It seems to be just a series of simple moves. You should be able to create these from scratch using the macro recorder in OpenOffice.org.
    Switch on the recorder, name the macro, carry out the maneouvre and switch off for each move.

    I had a closer look at what I need, and the thing is I just need to create a table with some columns taht displays some fonts on each tab, because I can input text much faster that with the keyboard. it's just I don't have any knowledge of how it should be done.. Uhmm... I really don't know from where to get the documentation for the macro in OO.

    Do you have a link for me?
