Hi I'm just wondering if there any effort to help people convert their macros. It would seem like someone could actually write a ....macro to do it.

I feel I might be stating the obvious here. That many people who are not programmer have spent a lot of time and effort with VBA Macro, and that many of them would be easy, grateful and generous converts to Libre Office if there was even a modest effort to help them migrate their macros.

Just saying

Here is a good starting point for porting your VBA code to VB:

As I said, this is just for starter. I totally agree with you, Bugs, we need to do porting in more organized manner.

I am currently struggling with the same problem, namely getting a type of control ported (see my posts for details).

I think if we can expand on the document I linked above, and maybe even make it into an easy-to-search catalog it will make the life easy for many.

Karolus Thanks for the reply. I understand that this is a difficult task, but I don't understand why there is not an sponsored and official collaborative effort by users or LibreOffice to tackle the problem. 1. A list of all equivalents methods, functions, objects, etc 2. A list of what does not work at all. 3. Examples of work a rounds.

Now even your suggestion for example, where did you find that out ? That seems like a good first step, but how would I have known if you had not told me? I wish The Document Foundation would just simply set a way for people to reach each other and share. It does not make sense that there is no real online place for this.
