So does report runner exist anymore?

Well, I haven't even looked at it for a long time - it is just basic
macro script. It had a way of leaving the java virtual machine still
running in memory, when I thought it should not, then I lost a disk and
never quite got back to redoing the last bit of lost work..and that is
why I stopped working with it - blah blah blah,..

so just looked I do have a copy on a disk (from 2008)
- tried an install with Libo 3.4.4, ok that worked
- the toolbar is there
- the toolbutton launches the dialog
- it lists all the databases registered in the Libo user instance
- but it doesn't list any reports.

.. still, I'll send this to you directly (the .oxt is attached)
if you install the oxt as you would any extension, then the basic
library is available as exportReport and you want to look at the
function openReport. 

The issue isn't the URl or URI as a string, it is asking the proper
container object to open if for you - in this case the container is the
Reports list contained within an ODB file. (otherwise is is analogous to
opening any document from the libreoffice desktop object)

I'll look at it later and see about why that list of reports isn't
displaying. In the mean time the basic script engine is best as just a
window to the published API[1] (application progamming interface) and if
you take the time to familarize yourself with that you can do quite a
bit. It is also possible to call a specific script from an OS command
line (of GUI script?) but you must of course include a full running copy
of libreoffice to do so..


How do I find the path to the report within base - seems if I can use open
or href to open it, I could run it. I may be getting in way over my head and
unfortunately my time is limited. What would you recommend?
