Description Frank Schönheit 2006-08-17 15:24:48 UTC
- open the attache document
  (it's a nearly empty incarnation of the Specification
  Template from
- switch the document to read-only mode
=> your're asked whether you want to allow macros from this document
   (why? I already confirmed or rejected this while initially loading it)
=> An error message box is shown, saying
   "A Scripting Framework error occured while running the Basic script

   Message: BasicProviderImpl::getScript: no script!"
- confirm this error
- switch the document to edit mode
- from the "Specification Template" toolbar, click any icon
=> error message:

Besides that all those error messages are in no way helpful to determine what's
going on (honestly, this is bothering the user with techno babble), it seems
that switching to read-only somehow broke the document's ability to execute
Basic macros.

Closing and re-opening the document works around this problem.

I can only confirm what i believe is the first issue in this issue:

- Download and store the specification template ( 
- Make sure the office allows macro execution (Low or medium level)
- Load the template from disk
- Confirm macro execution
- Save the file again under a random name
- Click the "Edit file" button
-> Macro security warning is displayed.

To AS: Can you please have a look or redistribute to someone
