Description usoo 2010-06-03 22:15:30 UTC
I can open and print Microsoft Office Excel spreadsheets by opening them with
OpenOffice Calc but for some reason they won't print using the -p option from
the commandline?
c:\> soffice -p MyExcelSheet.xls

However, all the other document types seem to have no problem printing using -p
from the commandline. I can print .doc, .txt. .jpg, .gif, .ods, .odt, .odp,
.odg, etc.

Since I can open the Excel spreadsheet file correctly with OpenOffice Calc,
shouldn't it also be printable from the commandline using -p?

* Please also ensure this also works with the -pt commandline option as well.

Adobe PDF files?

As an addendum to this, is there any chance of getting support for printing
PDF's from the commmnd line as well?  PDF command line print doesn't seem to be
supported or working at this time either?

cd: Set target to next release. Currently the root cause is unknown. 
For the PDF problem please use a new issue. One problem, one issue.

set target to 3.x since not release relevant for 3.4 release.
