Description thomasjf 2009-12-24 08:36:58 UTC

I am using a copy+paste (ctrl+shift+V) DDE connection in a writer-file (from an
area in a calc-file). Opening the calc-file from windows explorer, everything is
working fine.

Now I want to open the calc-file from inside the writer-file. I am using a macro:

sub oeffne_dok
Dim Doc As Object
Dim Url As String
Dim Dummy()
Url = "file:///E:/calc_filename.ods"
Doc = StarDesktop.loadComponentFromURL(Url, "_blank", 0, Dummy())
end sub

The calc-file opens and everything seems to work. But after (!) using this macro
no more DDE-connection (update) between the files is possible. 

OO3.11 must be restarted! After this everything is working fine again until
using the macro again.

This issue is unconfirmed since a year, does it still not work with a recent OOo version:
Else, please discuss in forum first:
