Re: Read a simple LibreOffice Calc file

Instead, I need is to read an existing one hidden and readonly . THE BIGGEST ISSUE: The necessary function loadComponentFromURL() requires a "special" parameter #4 to specifies "hidden" and "readonly". I do not know how to create this parameter for "hidden" a...

Re: Read a simple LibreOffice Calc file

Red, You should explore Joshy's advice. LibreOffice has a BASIC similar to VBA, and I am pretty sure that it can open various formats including *.xlsx. That would be by far the easiest way. With Microsoft Excel, you could even steer the whole process from outside using DDE, but as far as I remember ...

Re: StringArray Sort (case independent)

I updated my library algo QSort() , see Fast and powerful string sort . The trick with the conversion table gave it a 2.8x speed boost - thanks a lot, Juergen! As mentioned earlier, it's a stable merge sort, and it has a number of other features, such as sorting by column (for spreadsheets), sorting...

Re: StringArray Sort (case independent)

i've actually been working on an in-place merge for about a week. seems my brain wants me to solve this one. My version took a bit longer, actually; and yesterday I threw out the call to StringsDiffer() and implemented Juergen's table solution instead (see Aug 06, 2019 9:30). Much faster for the ca...

Re: StringArray Sort (case independent)

Well, JK has code that answers the OP's question. Looks very relevant. What do you offer, other than your "32-bit is obsolete" bla bla?
