Dear sir/madam,
We are huge fan of Open office for so many years and using it happily for our
home usages. But we are facing problem in linking open office spreed sheet(3.3)
with Autodesk's Autocad 2012 or any version of Autocad.In MS office we can very
much get the bi directional updates/linking of excel sheet, like if we would
like to update any MS excel file it will automatically update the sheet
info(Area calculations etc.) on drawing files and vice versa.But in open office
it is not happening as it do not associate with drawing files
bidirectionally.Moreover after installing open office in Autocad paste link do
not highlight as it does otherwise in MS case.
Kindly resolve this and link bidirectionally open office calc spreed sheet with
Autocad as well.We had discussed with Autodesk as well they said some
change/patch work is required in open office to get this bidirectional
Here I am forwarding Autodesk reply for your reference:

Thank you for choosing Autodesk Support. With AutoCAD the bi-directional
associative is only available with Microsoft excel. Unfortunately the Open
document does not support bidirectional association. It can be opened in
AutoCAD but the updates does not retains it sources.
This issues need to be raised on the open office forums to check if they have
any technical solution to these issues.

Best regards,

Thanks in anticipation,
