       MSFT has been/is making their system(s) incompatible with others in
order to reap a higher profit-margin  ;-(

       Therefore switching away from MSFT is a great way to - possibly -
show them the errors of their ways  ;-)

       Now, if you could explain just what you're attempting to do, maybe
someone on this list will be able to help -
             the LO writer program does whatever I would like - and more
than the MSFT version ...
             the LO ppt program as well - including its ability to convert
to video ...

                 [I need to see an example of what your attempting to do]

             as for the LO spreadsheet - many on this list seem to use this
                 [I do not]

       Hoping you'll be able to find an answer anon,

Good day,

I have tried to register but without success.  I am trying to find
assistance with the conversion of a Microsoft Global Template (
to be used with LibreOffice Writer as the Global template.

The template was 'created' for me for ofice convention service writing and
I am alos using it in my day to day activities away from the office.  I am
trying to move away from the Mircrosoft platform and environment, therefore
the assistance.

I have tried the wizard in LibreOffice, however for some reason I cannot
get it to function.  I receive a warning that macros might harm the system
if allowed.  However, irrespective, cannot use it.  Not sure where I am
going wrong.

Within Microsoft it can be added as a banner and one only click on the
required numbering and thereafter tab, etc to make full use of the
functionality.  It was designed for Office 97 to 2000 and only works on
certain computers with Office 2007/2010 as a plug-in.

However, as indicated, I want to move away from Microsoft, my entire system
has been setup with only FOSS/OSS, but the template would make life much
easier if I can get it to work.  I am not skilled in the 'Macro/template'
environment although I do understand some of the coding (limited).

Is there anyone that can assisit me in this regard.

Kind Regards.
