    Excel Macros and Workbooks and OpenOffice

    Hey everyone,

    I have a tricky one here.

    Basically what I need to do is make an excel sheet that will save a "copy" of itself in OpenOffice format, password protect it, and "paste" an open office macro into the sheet. Sounds wierd. But, I work in a place where 300 PCs have OpenOffice and admin has Excel (drops software costs). The 400 PCs need to be able to open this sheet, enter in there password, type in a few things, run the macro and then save it. Is this even remotly possible?

    Thanks for the help!

    I don't think that Excel macros work with Open Office
    Hope that helps.

    They do not, but I was hoping to maybe "paste" a precoded macro into the sheet when it is saved.

    I doubt if Excel can access the Open Office VB Editor.
