in my office as a medical pracitioner, I probably had the same situation but
sized down as Freiburg is having while switching to OO/LO.

Yes, I had a lot of work invested into forms, autotexts, dictionary and many
makros ("Fachanwendungen") to be used with Word2000 and Access2.0+Works.

Yes, it took some time to transcribe the macros into LO Basic slang. But when
I exchanged Word  for OO/LO on my assistants desk, I doubt they even noticed
it (beside some bugs in the makros in the first few weeks). However, I am
admin and CEO and hotline in a single person. Today, I just quickly added a
basic sub callable by a keystroke to ease their life.

And no, we have no problems with formats. Old .doc files are easily readable
(except embedded makros), medical reports are sent by Fax. I dont know what
will happen, when we will be forced to put digital reports into the cloud.

And no, I never want to switch back to MSO


I think you mentioned the real problems with transitioning either direction - macros, forms, templates, etc that need to be converted for the end users.
