Using Python with OpenOffice

The Python-UNO bridge can be used to call up pieces of Python code from within OpenOffice. The source code of a "hello world" example can be found at http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/PyUNO_bridge, showing you how to start OpenOffice looking for a connection on a TCP/IP port, and then how to run a Python program to pass data - in this case the text "hello world" - into it.

There are also some recent articles (Feb 2009) on Linux Journal - start at http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/python-pyuno-hello-world-addon-openoffice which includes an example, and links to other articles which cover the conversion of spreadsheets to csv files ( http://www.linuxjournal.com/node/1007797 )

If all this is more than you need, there's nothing to stop you importing / exporting data to / from OpenOffice in a file format like CSV .. using files that happen to have been written / read by / from Python.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
