First time here? Check out the FAQ!
Do you have any programming background? If so and if you already know Python, then by all means do use it in Calc. All functions of the LibreOffice API can be accessed from the different languages; it is easier for beginners to use StarBasic, as it is straightforward, but Python is more "powerful", in a way, because it allows you to create new "UNO services", which more or less means adding new functionality that didn't exist in LibreOffice to begin with.
Finally, it is important to note that the macros recorded with the experimental macro recorder use Basic, but do not use the API calls; instead, they use a service called the dispatcher, which is limited to emulating the commands issued by the user through the graphical user interface.

Yeah, Python! I really came here to find out if Python works reliably with calc.

At the start button opens box question (inputbox) and the variable containing the response, showing in the text box (textField1). I need the codes written in Module1. thank you
