Openoffice.org 3.0 macro

Need to write a macro in OpenOffice.org version 3 that selects all of column A, copies all data in column A and then pastes over data in column A with TEXT.

My column A contains an equation, and when I am done with the calculations, I need a macro that will overwrite the equations with their current value.  I tried the record macro and ended up with the following code.  

When I originally did the Paste Special (while recording the macro), it worked and I ended up with only values in Column A.  But when I run the macro, it pastes the formulas, not the text into Column A.  Any help is appreciated.

document   = ThisComponent.CurrentController.Frame

rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
dim args1(0) as new com.sun.star.beans.PropertyValue
args1(0).Name = "ToPoint"
args1(0).Value = "$A$2"
 
dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:GoToCell", "", 0, args1())
 
rem ----------------------------------------------------------------------
dim args2(0) as new com.sun.star.beans.PropertyValue
args2(0).Name = "ToPoint"
args2(0).Value = "$A$1"
 
dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:GoToCell", "", 0, args2())

args4(4).Name = "AsLink"

We could try and make the recorded macro work, but the code below should do the trick and is shorter.  Let me know how it works.  Just Paste it over top your current code.

-Bear

Sub PasteValues
	Dim oSheet
	Dim oRange
	Dim intCol
	Dim i
 
	' Get Access to Active Sheet
	oSheet = ThisComponent.CurrentController.getActiveSheet
	' Get the Current Range
	oRange = ThisComponent.getCurrentSelection
 
	' Find the Column Selected
	intCol = oRange.RangeAddress.StartColumn
 
	' Loop Through All Rows and Paste Value
	For i = oRange.RangeAddress.StartRow to oRange.RangeAddress.EndRow
		oOldCell = oSheet.getCellByPosition(intCol, i)
		oNewCell = oSheet.getCellByPosition(intCol, i)
		
		' If Numeric paste value, else paste string
		IF isnumeric(oNewCell.String) Then
			oOldCell.Value = oNewCell.Value
		Else
			oOldCell.String = oNewCell.String
		End If
	Next
	
End Sub
