Hi Martin,

Hey list,

We're dealing with a complex document containing hundreds of DDE
links. Worse yet, those DDE links are dynamically created, e.g.
using the following formula to reference filename ($B$2), sheet name,
($B$3), column ($B$6), and row (in column $A starting at $A8):


Such DDE works for me on Windows. But I have no part "file:./" but for me it is "c:\". I know Linux has a different way to write a path, but are you sure about the part "file:"?

Does DDE works, if you make a new pair of documents (source and target) in LibreOffice 5?

This worked very well a year ago, but when we tried to open it as of
late, we get "Err:504" (parameter list error) all over.

You should generate a test file in LibreOffice 4 with a DDE-link, which works. (A administrative installation or a portable version should work for that.) Then go to Edit > Links.. in that version and look, what link information are actually generated. Below the list in that dialog you read 'Source file', 'Element' and 'Type'.

The only thing that's changed is that we've since upgraded from
Libreoffice 4 to version 5.

Are you aware of (a) the relevant change, and (b) a remedy to this
problem, so that we can use DDE links as we used to with Libreoffice

I have tested it with a current developer built from master. [] Perhaps you try such version too.

I am not aware of any relevant changes. If you can reproduce the problem with a small pair of test documents, then please write a bug report and attach the documents.

Kind regards
