Thanks Jim for introducing this topic.

A small company I know is using an ACCESS DB with macros exporting certain information into EXCEL spreadsheets. This ACCESS DB is currently preventing the company to change over from MSO to LibO and Linux.

A 2 step approach is discussed: First to migrate from MSO to LibO using W7 and second moving from Windows to Linux. (Distributions not yet decided but most likely Linux Mint of Linux Mint Debian or Antergos.)

Therefore, 1 more question from my side: Assuming that using Access2Base helps us to get the DB and the macros into Base and create the Calc spreadsheets, can this BASE DB with the LibO macros be used as they are when changing from W7 to Linux?

I am still using the 3.xx version of LO that came with Ubuntu 12.04 and haven't been on the main LibreOffice site for some time. I've been reading the naming discussion (Fresh/Still etc) and decided to look at the site. While there I stumbled across Acces2Base. I've always thought writing macros in LO was way harder than it should be because of UNO, so this is an interesting development.

A couple of questions:

(1) Has anyone here used it and does it make writing macros for Base easier?

(2) I write most of my macros for Calc  so is there a Excel2Calc planned?
