Hello, a customer has a Problem with converting PowerPoint documents to Impress: â€¦ we have the problem, that we converted MSO 2003 PowerPoint documents to Impress- documents. As long as we have installed MSO, we can use these converted documents. These documents included charts, that are created under PowerPoint. After deinstalling MSO, we now open a chart to edit the data and it is no longer possible, to edit these dataÂ´s. A empty Calc- side will be opened. When MSO is installed, MS-Graph will be started to edit the Impress- document. It is not possible to mark the document in MS-Graph to copy to Calc or to save the document in Calc. When I take a client where never MSO was installed, an error occures (oo31.jpg). How has these document to edit to use the charts? Are there any options to be set in Impress to edit the charts in Calc and not in MS- Graph? Or do we have to make the documents new in Imress while the makros in PowerPoint are not convertable? Thank you very much for helping.

Hello All I was able to replicate the issue that the user looses the ability to edit the graphs & charts when MS Office is uninstalled from the machine Environment OOo-dev 3.2.0 (OOO320m4, Build :9450) Windows XP - SP3 MS Office - 2007 Reproduction Steps Environment - MS Office is Installed - Able to edit graph 1. Open the document uploaded as attachment ( Created an attachment (id=65319)) 2. Click on the chart and observe that MS Graph is launched 3. Observe that the user is able to change the values for the graphs and get a modified graph back to Impress Environment - MS Office is UnInstalled - Unable to edit graph Note : Using Sandboxie, Instead of completely removing MS Office from my PC - I uninstalled it under the Sandbox and ran all further tests under the Sandbox 1. Open the document uploaded as attachment ( Created an attachment (id=65319)) 2. Click on the chart and observe that an empty, read only Calc file with the extension .tmp is launched Importance to the customers / end users Users loose the ability to edit / change the graphs that were created in MS Office, once MS Office is uninstalled and only OOO is present This will be of some concern to the users as they have to recreate the graphs anew. I feel this will be a very common occurrence as more and more users after adopting OOO will be uninstalling MS Office and therefore I have voted for this issue I believe the key issue is mentioned in the original report The graphs even when MS Office is installed should be editable in Calc rather than MS Graph, if we can do that I believe we will solve this

Reproducible. Reassigned. @cl: is this a calc or an impress issue? Which one deals with the OLEs after being double clicked?

OOo is able to correclty load charts from MSO 2003 & MSO 2007. The document contains a "Microsoft Graph 97 Chart" object which is not even part of MSO 2007 (I have an MSO 2007 installed and I can't activate that in OOo). It would be possible to support such objects by implementing an import filter. But since this was never reported until today I set the target milestone to OOo Later. reassigned to calc team.
