Did you forget to add the dll containing that namespace to the references for your project?

I've not seen that specific namespace before, so I can't tell you what to add, but I would suggest you need to add whatever dll contains it into your references list, which you should be able to find in your solution explorer.

Check this link. It lists a number of dll's at the top which I would guess is what you're looking for, or something similar at least.

http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=94558

The source code doesn't actually refer to your specific namespace of unoidl.com.sun.star.chart, so it might be a slightly different dll to the ones listed here, but this may give you an idea of where to start looking at least.

As described in the instructions at that link, and the one that I gave you, open the openofficeorg1.cab file (which is part of the openoffice installation download files - I used winrar to open it), and extract the dll's starting with cli_ from within that file to some location on your hard drive where it will be safe to keep them, perhaps your visual studio project folder (I just put them on my desktop to test this, but you probably won't want to keep them there).

Next, right-click on references in your visual studio solution explorer (I have version 2010, hopefully yours is the same) and select Add Reference..., click on the Browse tab, and navigate to those dll's you extracted above. Select them all and click ok.

Now, it should compile.

Sorry, but I can't. I don't have microsoft office installed, and that project requires it.

I performed the steps from my last post on my own test project, and it compiled fine when including that namespace you mentioned in your original post. So the above steps should fix your original error. If you have further problems, then describe them and I'll see what I can do, but if it relates to microsoft office components, then I may not be able to help you.

What exactly do you mean by remove it? What's 'it'?

That project has many references to office requirements. I don't think it would be very easy just to remove them all.

My mistakes.

Create a new project.

Insert below code, and see if you could solve the problem.

 using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using unoidl.com.sun.star.table;
using unoidl.com.sun.star.beans;
using unoidl.com.sun.star.sheet;
using unoidl.com.sun.star.text;
using unoidl.com.sun.star.util;

Thank you.

Yes, I can compile after adding all those using statements.

Are you still getting the same error, or a different one now? Do you have all 6 cli_*.dll's listed under your references?

This is set to target .NET framework 3.5, created in VC# 2008 express.

I had to delete some files before EE would let me upload, so hopefully it will still work. It includes the dll files.
