I have developed an application using libreoffice base.  I navigate to all
the forms from an html5 document. Here's my problem:

I've created some reports using report builder, but cannot trigger the
generation of a dynamic report from the html file. All my research points to
the impossibility of externally accessing the dynamic reports, but I am
hoping it is lack of knowledge that is turning up these research results.
Can anyone enlighten me on this?

Pretty much - you can programmatically run a report using any of the
supported scripting languages, but it requires you to load the ODB file
(can be hidden) and then opening (running) the dynamic report, the
script can save that, or export it, or whatever you like, but yes you
are running a script from within the LibreOffice runtime.

Does that help any? I rather think not, at least if I understand what
you are doing here correctly.

best wishes,


I resorted to using forms to produce a dynamic data grid. This could work,
but only if its possible to make it more presentable, instead of looking
like a table.

My whole project hinges on getting presentable dynamic reports to work.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thank you!
