When I go to save a file I get the following error msgs:
"Error loading Basic of document" then it indicates a file such as /opt/...../FormWizard/script.xlb

It runs thru 18 of these msgs and then seems to save okay.
Any ideas or is this a bug.

I'd suggest reinstalling OOo.

Which O/S are you using?

The presence of "/opt" in the directory path suggests to me that the OP is using Linux. I haven't seen the problem described in my W2K install.

I experienced same problems with my Win2000 installation. As mentioned in a report i just installed release 1.1 over a 1.0.2. I guess this causes the problem, although my documents are stored fine.

In the office i first deinstalled my old version and then installed the new one. There i get no error messages.
Hence i recommend to deinstall your current version and reinstall the new one.

btw in the office i use it on Suse Linux 8.2 on one pc and with Win98 on another pc. Both versions run fine.

Ah, that will be why I haven't had the problem. I've always uninstalled the previous version before installing the next.

Thks for the replies. as info I'm running RH 9. I thought I was okay installing over 1.02 since it loads into a different directory. Also I thought the errors might be because I don't have java installed. But I will deinstall 1.02 and reload 1.1.

Hey sage,

i did the same fault on my office pc, which is running Suse Linux 8.2.
OpenOffice needs to do some entries in your home- and (i guess) the /opt-folder. If you just install the new release over an old release it is installed into a seperate folder, that's right. But the system-options are stored in the same folder as in old versions. And i'm not sure whether the old entries in home and opt are overwritten. I guess they are still kept, so you have a mix of release 1.0.2 (in opt and home) and 1.1 in your new folder.

Deinstall it first, make your system clean of old openoffice-releases and then reinstall it (if your using Suse you can use YAST). Then it will work fine

good luck

I have clean installs in RedHat 9 and SuSE 9 and neither will allow 'save as' to a filename not already present! So a new file cannot be saved. And the Help file under load/save refers to items in tools/general that don't exist. ????

I am experiencing the same problem on my machines. One has a freshly compiled version of OO 1.1 and others are using the binary distribution (under Gentoo Linux).

Closer investigation gave out the following:
1- To reduce the number of errors, modify the default search path for the BASIC filetypes in the OO configuration dialog:
- Wile in openoffice perform the following:
Tools -> Options
+OpenOffice.org
|--Paths

Select the BASIC path definition and remove the reference to the /opt/... path (there is no basic folder there). This will reduce the amount of errors.

Correct paths that should be there are $HOME/.openoffice/1.1.0/user/basic/ and $HOME/.openoffice/1.1.0/user/basic/Standard

Now, unfortunately, I still get errors when saving my documents, this is an annoyance but the documents still get saved. One hint in the error message though is that OO seems to be trying to open these files incorrectly by adding a / at the end. These are the intergal messages I get:
Code:
Error loading Basic of document
files:///opt/OpenOffice.org1.1_rc3/share/basic/FormWizard/script.xlb/:
General Error.
General inout/output error.

And I get this for the following paths also:
Code:

files:///opt/OpenOffice.org1.1_rc3/share/basic/Template/script.xlb/:
files:///opt/OpenOffice.org1.1_rc3/share/basic/Tools/script.xlb/:
files:///opt/OpenOffice.org1.1_rc3/share/basic/WebWizard/script.xlb/:
files:///opt/OpenOffice.org1.1_rc3/share/basic/Schedule/script.xlb/:
files:///opt/OpenOffice.org1.1_rc3/share/basic/Gimmicks/script.xlb/:
files:///opt/OpenOffice.org1.1_rc3/share/basic/ImportWizard/script.xlb/:
files:///opt/OpenOffice.org1.1_rc3/share/basic/Euro/script.xlb/:
files:///opt/OpenOffice.org1.1_rc3/share/basic/Depot/script.xlb/:


I then get the same type of errors bur relative to the paths I have set in my BASIC PATH settings and the files OO is looking for are dialog.xlc and dialog.xli files.

And it is due to these error messages that I suspect that OO is appending an / at the end of the filenames when trying to open these files...

In any case, anyone go a clue on how to get rid of this annoyance?

That didn't work for me. I had the correct paths in the Options menu after the installation,
however, OO seemed still to want the /usr/lib/openoffice/share/basic directory.

What I did, which seems to work, was
    Log in as root.

    cd /usr/lib/openoffice/share (the directory already existed)

    ln -s /opt/OpenOffice.org1.1.0/share/basic

which creates a symbolic link to the directory OO is looking for.
It's a hack, but it seems to work. Confused

I had that error too, but that error was caused only when I was with a normal user when I was as root user this error didn't exist. So, I thought maybe it was a permission problem and that's right, it was. Because only root could write in script.xlc and dialog.xlc

I have the same problem that charlescampbell described. I tried creating links as Mr. Clift mentioned, but it didn't help. Is it safe to change the user permissions on script.xlc and dialog.xlc? I need to be able to save files!

Thanks!

For those of you still having this problem I found one solution to it:

Go into the Macros dialog, then into Organizer, and there you'll see the names of all those scripts causing problems. Simply remove all the invalid ones at the error seems to go away.
