Hi, all.

Once in the past I stumbled upon a blog where owner explained how one
can create a Calc document from the data that's in the XML file. I'm not
sure if XML contained only the data which then populated the Calc
template, or the whole Calc data was in that XML (not even sure if the
source was XML or was it some other human-readable file), but I haven't
been able to locate that blog ever since.

I'd appreciate any info or pointers on how above mentioned can be achieved.

I need to create several daily reports on some processes I'm overseeing,
and entering all that data into the Calc spreadsheet is cumbersome - the
report resembles of a tax-return/invoice sheet, where various fields
need to be populated - and I'm looking for a way to automate this.

In which form do you get the data? Perhaps there is nothing like XML 
needed, but you can import the data directly.

Do you want to write macros for Calc or do you want to use another 
application that manipulates the .ods file source?


P.S. I apologize if I posted this to the wrong mailinglist, please
redirect me if necessary.

"users" is OK.

Kind regards

I have done this for some special logging I do, by simplying creating my
own template, saving the data in a csv (comma separated value format)
and then loading the data into the template.  I do this manually, but a
macro could be created to do it as well.
