This macro, which is invoked from LibreOffice started in headless mode through xScript.invoke(...), works in the UI but does not execute when invoked through code (using location = document). The calculations on this Sheet are reflected in another sheet using a formula similar to (=$'Sheet2'.A1). I'm using LibreOffice 6.4 and Java. The only difference is: works in IDE but not when invoked through code. What do I need to do for this to work when invoked through code?

Option VBASupport 1
Option Compatible

Sub Test
    Dim i As Double 
    With Sheets("Sheet2")
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
        For i = 1 To .Cells(6, 4)
            .Cells(14 + i, 3) = i
            .Cells(14 + i, 4) = .Cells(9, 4).Value
            .Cells(14 + i, 5) = .Cells(10, 4).Value        
    End With
End Sub

XScriptProviderSupplier xsps = UnoRuntime.queryInterface(XScriptProviderSupplier.class, xSpreadsheetDocument); // I've used XComponent as well but both fail
XScriptProvider xsp = xsps.getScriptProvider();
XScript xs = xsp.getScript(...); // elided for brevity
short[][] i = ...;
Object[][] o = ...;
Object result = xs.invoke(...);
