Hi :)  
You can use Nabble to share the document.  Use any of the links in this
email but it's better practice to go to the official LIbreOffice website and
navigate through
"Get Help" - Nabble - Users - errr, and then find your thread, you might
need to register at the site
when you start to write a reply there are various buttons above the
"Message" box.  The last of these is "More" and that gives a small drop-down
menu.  Top item is "Upload a file" which works roughly the same way as
uploading an attachment to an email except that it puts a line of html code
into the message.  You can move the whole line of code around.  

Macros are a problem.  

To move these to LibreOffice you need someone to rewrite the code.  This
mailing list has been able to help a few people with this in the past but
it's not really what we are here for.  You might need to find someone who
has some coding skills elsewhere.  Luckily LibreOffice seems to be able to
handle macros written in a few different popular languages.  Also once the
code has been re-written to work in LibreOffice then it's unlikely to need
to be re-written after that.  

Moving to a new version of MS Office, such as the 2007 or 2010 would also
need the code to be re-written and it seems that each version of MS Office
makes changes so that re-write would probably need to be re-written again in
the future or for different versions of MS Office.  

One of the problems with the MS version of macros, is that macros have often
been used as an attack vector.  So much so that newer versions of MS Office
have a security pop-up alerting the user to possibly dangerous code being
run on their machine and asking if they really trust the source of the

So, either way it looks like you need to get the macros re-written.  

However i get the feeling that your macro does something that might be
better done by an Extension/Add-on/Plug-in and doing that might make it more
robust.  Hopefully someone else on this mailing list might be able to give a
better idea about the feasibility of this idea after seeing the code and/or
what it does.  

Regards from 
Tom :)
