Subject Re: [DISCUSS]Macros are lost after saving the xls file to ods, then save as to xls again
Date Tue, 03 Jul 2012 10:32:50 GMT
That doesn't matter that you think they are VBA or Star Basic when saving a
xls with VBA as ods file..To some APIs with behavior difference,they will
be distinguished with the line "Option VBASupport 1" at the beginning..End
users can modify the Star Basic codes in AOO Spreadsheet,but all Star Basic
contents including original and modified will be lost when exporting to xls
file..Here,if the ods file is converted from a xls file based on Peng's
solution,the behavior is still kept unchanged...The only difference is that
the saved binary VBA streams within the ods file will be exported to the
xls file at that time.Thus,when end users launch the xls file in MS
Excel,the original VBA will be there.That's the expected result.thanks.
