I have this code that works great on an excel worksheet but I need to convert it openoffice calc

Sub KeyCellsChanged()
   Dim Cell As Object
   ' If the values in A11:C11 are greater than 50...
   For Each Cell In Range("C3:E10")
    Dim exitSubFlag As Boolean
    exitSubFlag = False
   
   
    If Range("C4").Value = "2for promo" Then
        If Range("C9").Value > 80 Then
            foo = MsgBox("Frame Price can NOT exceed $79.99 when a 2for Promo is selected.", vbOKOnly, "Validation violation")
                If vbOK Then
                Range("C9").Value = 0
                'Range("C9").Activate

                End If
            exitSubFlag = True
        End If
           
            Else
           
     End If
   

   
    If exitSubFlag Then
        Exit Sub
    End If
  Next Cell
 

End Sub

This looks as if it could run under OpenOffice without many changes but it's nevertheless senseless code.
Why is there an iteration over Cells where Cell is never used. So what good does this code? I suggest you send a proper spreadsheet with this code which actually does something with sens. I've removed the senseless loop and got to this:

Ok agreed does not make sense but that's the same with you Excel VBA code.
Dim Doc As Object

Dim Sheet As Object







Sub KeyCellsChanged()

  

  

   ' If the values in A11:C11 are greater than 50...

   

   dim exitSubFlag as Boolean

   dim cellA9 as Object

   dim cellC4 as Object

   dim wCell

   dim foo

   const intOkButton as Integer = 1

   const intStopIcon as Integer = 16

   

   Doc = ThisComponent

   Sheet = doc.Sheets(0)

    

    cellc9 = Sheet.getCellRangeByName("C9")

   	cellc4 =  Sheet.getCellRangeByName("C4")

    If cellc4.Formula = "2for promo" Then

        If cellc9.Value > 80 Then

            foo = MsgBox("Frame Price can NOT exceed $79.99 when a 2for Promo is selected.", intStopIcon + intOkButton , "Validation violation")

                If foo = intOkButton Then

                cellC9.Value = 0

                'Range("C9").Activate



                End If

            exitSubFlag = True

        End If

           

     Else

     	msgBox "Useless comemnt"

           

     End If

   



   

   

end sub

Open in new window

Thanks frido,

cell C4 is a drop list and C9 the user enters a value. what I'm trying to acomplish, and it is working fine on my excel spreadsheet, is that any time the value in any of those to cells changes the validation is checked. if cell C4 selection is "2for promo" then the value in C9 can't be greater than $79.99. but sometimes the user might select a "% discount" on cell C4 enter a value greater than $79.99 but then goes back to cell C4 and changes it to "2for promo" then I need the validation to run again.

Well that was absolutly unknow to me. So again if you want something running on OpenOffice you better provide at a working Excel worksheet otherwise, no-one will be able to help you.

Thanks again fridom,

The code you provided works fine. The one thing the isee you commented out is setting the focus on C9 after updating to 0. How can I implement the set focus?

Use something along this lines
controller = Doc.getcurrentController
controller.select(cellc9)

Thanks fridom,

That worked great. you wouldn't know how to get this macro to run on startop. I created it in the document's Macro library but i have to manually run it for it to work. I need it to start running the moment I open the spreadsheet.

Menu Extras modify/change (in German it is Extras -> Anpassen directly over optoins. I do not know the name
in English. Then go to the tab Events and choose the proper time to run the makro e.g On Load or the like
klick on Macro and choose the name you've given to the Makro.
