Have done another test this time with ods sheet and that is working fine
with same code. Next test with excel sheet that is actually produced by
excel itself and that works as well.

Seems this has something to do with my sheet which comes from an
external source and although I can open it without issue within excel I
can not using libreoffice. Also an attempt to convert is not working.

Sorry but the URLs are actually pointing to your "tmp" folder on your
Linux machine, and not a valid accessible file[s].

I have created a python script to open and read information from an

is working fine on 3.4 but on a newer version of libreoffice this is
no longer working

The error:
  File "./", line 109, in ReadNewPositions
    oSheet = oDoc.getSheets().getByName( "Excel Sheet" )

Code extract:
    oDoc = StarDesktop.loadComponentFromURL( cURL  , "_blank", 0, () )

    print "oDoc.__class__:",  oDoc.__class__, ";URL:", cURL

    # select the sheet that is called "Excel Sheet"
    oSheet = oDoc.getSheets().getByName( "Excel Sheet" )

Print: oDoc.__class__: <type 'NoneType'> ;URL:
file:///tmp/ExcelSheet.xls  oDoc.__class__: None ;URL: file:///tmp/ExcelSheet.xls

It seems to me that the return from StarDesktop.loadComponentFromURL
returns a different type between the 2 LO versions which leads to the
error in line 109 trying to open a specific sheet.

Did some research but have not found many leads yet. Hoping someone
might be able to shed some light on this.
