How to chage cell's format of Libre-Office Calc

How to chage cell's format of Libre-Office Calc

Please, I would like to know how to change the cell's format in a Libre-Office Calc with automation from VFP.
Someone know how to do this ?. Thanks

RE: How to chage cell's format of Libre-Office Calc

You haven't really asked anything answerable.

I might start here.

RE: How to chage cell's format of Libre-Office Calc

I doubt that anyone has done any automation with Libre-Office Calc. Most of the automation work is with Microsoft Excel as this is the dominate spreadsheet program. You can look at https://github.com/ggreen86/XLXS-Workbook-Class as this is a VFP only class that will open a spreadsheet in XLSX format, you can then make changes, and then save. The class also allows creation of XLSX documents.

RE: How to chage cell's format of Libre-Office Calc

It would help if you could tell us how much you already know. Can we assume that you already know how to instantiate the automation server, open the spreadsheet and locate the cell that you want to change? Or are you starting completely from scratch?

If the former, that's a reasonable question and it's possible that someone here knows the answer. But if the latter, this isn't the place to ask. You would need to read the Libre Office documentation and make sure you understand the overall concepts involved.
