Openoffice stores individual macros in modules. Modules are stored in libraries, and libraries are stored in macro containers.

Three "things" can be macro containers, documents, your user space, and one that is global to OpenOffice. It sounds like you desire to add a macro that is global to OpenOffice. I have never done this.... It is not enabled on my Linux system, is it available to you to do from the GUI when you are logged in as an administrator?

I expect that the Link from Tom Davis is the best you can find, since I don't see an ability to set the Macro location directories in the configuration.

This is probably trivial but I'm not capable of correctly creating new custom macros within 
%PROGRAMFILES%\LibreOffice 4.0\share\basic\ (Windows 7).

My goal is to setup some custom macros globally for all users (location=share). I don't want to include the 
macros within location=document because I'll be deploying lots of docs and it would be a pain to 
maintain/update macros within every single odt document. I'd also like to avoid location=user (or 
location=application - I don't remember which is which) because I have PCs that are being used by lots of 
users and copying/syncing "user macros" to each user profile on every machine would be a waste of 
space and network bandwidth.
That's why I was hoping to install and update all my macros within the main LO application.
Another even better way would be to tell the LO application that my custom macros can be found on a remote 
server, eg. something like "location=url". This way, I'd maintain my macros on my 
web/ftp/webdav/whatever server (just one single copy) and forget about syncing them with each and every LO 
client installation.

Any ideas?
