Hello,
I am brand new to openoffice. I decided to look into open office because I need to be able to schedule tasks that create spreadsheets through API/COM. I have created alot through excel in the past, but the problem I have with excel is it likes to use an existing instance of itself if there is one open. For scheduled tasks I always want it to create a new instance and not interfere with any other processes that maybe running. I did see a couple posts when I searched the general forum but they didn't go into the detail I was looking for. First off, using windows 2k for example, is there a 100% reliable way around this using OO. If not how about under red-hat? If so how do you do that? Also how close in programming is the OO COM to the excel COM? Am I just going to have to change a couple places, like from excel.application to oocalc.application or is every com call I have going to change?
Any assistence would be greatly appreciated

Same problem with OOo, but since the file format is free by any means you don't need any office suite at all.
A prepared template and any programming language with some XML parser can generate valid documents.
