Description

With this small extension you are able to fill tables in a writer-document with data derived from a registered datasource, or the current opened database. That's not new, the built in reportbuilder does that too, but:

You gain all the benefits from both:

  • all the formatting features of a table in a LO-Writer document combined with
  • all possibilities of queries or SQL in LO-Base.

 

Data definitions are easily done by inserting one custom property (plain text) for each table you want to fill. At the end the LO-Writer document can either be

  1. opened (even with a non-LO-program that you specify), it can be
  2. mailed (if your mail client supports sending from commandline (... Mozilla's Thunderbird does)), it can be
  3. saved as pdf/otd or it can be
  4. returned as a BASIC-object (e.g. if called from another macro and you want to do something else with it).

 

Some other features you'll find:

  • refer in your query easily to contents of currently opened Base-forms
  • use data from many different datasources in one report
  • merge adjacent cells of a table
  • save your report directly as odt or pdf to the path you define per default
  • display the pdf after saving
  • run a SHELL after the report was generated – e.g. mail it or load it up per ssh
  • text overflow in cell of a table will enlarge the cell
  • The extension is well documented - you can easily improve it for your own needs if you know the basics of Staroffice-Basic

    Does this still work w/ current versions of LO? If the last version it worked with is 4.2 it should be deprecated.

    There was some help neccessary for my first Report to create. It's like a Clockwork to assemble.

    The greatest Benefit is to me the Option of putting several Tables with different Data sources onto one Sheet in the Report.
    I'm delightet !
