Hi guys

I currently have an web app that uses VBScript to control Microsoft Word. SOmething like the following...

<script language="vbscript">
set app = CreateObject("Word.Application")
set doc = app.Documents.New()
.....
.....
</script>

This webapp is for a client, and they are considering switching from MSOffice to OpenOffice.

If they do this, does OpenOffice have a way of being able to control Writer like this? Some sort of document object model I can control from VBScript or Javascript, to load Writer and create a document on the fly?

Thanks for any help!


Dan

OpenOffice.org is an XML document so you need to find extensions to manipulate XML data and other tool to manage a zipping functionality.

Please read this document (is pretty big but you will get the point after the first chapter).
