I have a LibreOffice spreadsheet (data.ods) containing approximately 500
rows of comma separated values in 30 columns. The first row contains the
column headers.

Data.ods is updated periodically throughout the day by a script. I then
have several links to the cells in data.ods in another spreadsheet

I am currently doing the following:

1) Generate data.ods via script.

2) Open data.ods so that LibreOffice does a Text Import of the comma
separated values to populate the rows.

3) Open main.ods (which automatically updates the links).

I am not able to simply leave main.ods open currently because even after
closing data.ods, it appears that LibreOffice still has some sort of lock
on the file and does not allow my script to edit data.ods until I close
LibreOffice altogether (requiring me to close main.ods).

I would like to to do the following:

1) Have main.ods open.

2) Generate data.ods via script.

3) Import updated values into main.ods using Edit...Links...Update Values.

4) Leave main.ods open.

5) Generate new data.ods via script.

6) Import updated values into main.ods using Edit...Links...Update Values.

7) Repeat as necessary.

Please let me know if I can be more clear in my explanation.
