Open Office integration

Hi All,

We are trying to integrate Open Office with SAP but running out of luck. I tried maintaining the OLE entries but not sure if I am missing any steps. Do I need to activate this in any other way other than running RSOLEINT. How do I see the changes? Downloading to a spreadsheet on a PC that just has Open Office and not Excel, results in an error stating "Not possible to setup a DDE connection to a local display service".

Please advice.

Thank You.

PS: Is this the right forum for this question?

    Hi Sreedhar,

    I haven't done any server based OLE programming myself, but I think you should not use anything that says DDE. That technology is quite outdated.

    Unless somebody comes up with a pure automation solution, you could of course download the data to a temporary file and run open office with the appropriate file parameter. It may not be so fancy, but it's easy to achieve 😉

    Best regards,
