How to install Prode Properties with OpenOffice?

How to install Prode Properties with OpenOffice?

The previous thread has been closed. Is it possible to get a bit more information about how to install the Prode Properties add-in with OpenOffice?.  (Win7/OOo 3.3.0) and www.prode.com.

Prode comes with folders titled "C"; "Excel"; "FORTRAN" and "NET". The Prode developer is not familiar with OpenOffice, but said you needed to instruct OpenOffice about each method, along the lines of the ppp.vba file. I tried running the content of the .vba file as a macro but the syntax was wrong. None of the files were recognisable as extensions or other objects in OOo. Maybe just the filename ending needs to be changed, or maybe some code needs to be written. Would much appreciate some advice on how the linking can be done.

RE: How to install Prode Properties with OpenOffice?

frankly, compared to Open Office, Excel seems much more easy to interface, not an expert in this area, I know two options to link Calc application in Open Office (but may be there are others)

a) you can write a interface and that would permit to access all the methods in Properties


b) utilize a interpreted language able to link external libraries, there is the list of the tools available at openoffice.org , several languages (Basic etc.) can link external libraries.
