 I am at the moment running Microsoft Office on my desktop computer (XP) and have just purchased a 
new laptop (Windows 7) onto which I have downloaded the above LibreOffice. I wish to ensure that 
the documents I already have on the XP machine can safely be read, changed in Calc & written back 
before I change my desktop machine to LibreOffice also. However I have 2 problems that need 
resolving, both to do with Macros.

1. When I load an Excel document containing macros into Calc, the macros (assigned to buttons on 
the worksheet) work OK, but when I make changes to the document and then save it in xls format the 
macros no longer work in Excel as the path to the macros seems to have been changed. I can go into 
the macros, change the path and make them work again but this is by no means satisfactory. Other 
people use my files so my changing to LibreOffice on the desktop m/c will not help them. Any clues 

2. These same documents may require me to record new macros so I searched your Help files for 
information on how to do this and came across problem 2. The help file says to click on 
'Tools/Macros/Record Macros', however when I checked this I find there is no 'Record Macros' 
choice, only 'Run Macros'. Is your help file wrong or am I missing something?

Other than the above, I think that LibreOffice is brilliant and can't wait to install it on my 
desktop m/c.
