My company currently uses MS Office and I had approached my boss about OOo. He liked it and so we did some investigating on whether or not it would benefit us to swtich. What I find out was that macros don't convert from MS to OOo. And since we have hundreds of macros in our Documents throughout the company, we can't swtich. So does anyone know if OOo is going to address this issue, or if it has already been addressed and I am missing something? Thanks.
I will see if I can find where I was reading about a macro converter. I know there was a survey on the OOo site which was used to priortize the importance of development and one of the items was a Microsoft/OOo Macro converter. Regards Sal
That would be a very nice feature indeed. That could change a lot of companies into using OOo. But offcourse we could build our own converter I suppose. But you should know the OOo API I think, and that API is stil in b�ta. Regards, Mark Monster

Hi I was unable to find any reference regarding the converter, but if you look around the Developer section of the OOo site you will find the survey. Try using the developer boards at OOo mentioned in the other thread you may get better assistance from the Guru's that hang out there. Regards Sal
Yeah, those macros are a bit of a sticking point. The openoffice.org site is the place to check on progress. You might, not sure, be able to get on a mailing list that would discuss the progress. Solveig
