[solved] Unable to call a Python extension routine from Basic [closed]

asked 2018-10-25 09:44:39 +0200

As per OpenOffice specs, calling a Python extension macro is possible. I able to do so when the Python macro is stored in a document or in the user/Scripts/python directory but unable to get it functioning when the Python macro resides within an extension. I may surely be doing something wrong.

I am attaching a Writer doc with functioning & failing example codes and instructions for anyone to review: docConsole macro is functioning while oxtConsole macro fails to locate/load the Python script resulting in "Object variable not set" error message.

Tested with LibreOficePortable, LibreOffice and OpenOfficePortable 4.1.5

Thanks in advance for your assistance in that matter. C:\fakepath\Console.odt

What does "unable" mean? Please never omit what you get (e.g., error messages - they might be different on your system).

And also please never omit important information about your setup (like OS details).

Hi Mike

Thanks for your interest as well as your prompt answer. However the docConsole macro is actually functioning fine, it’s the ‘oxtConsole’ that fails. Should I assume you made a typo in the last sentence of your mail?
