OOoBasic crash course: Creating a lookup macro

Learning OOoBasic can be a bit like learning a foreign language. If you have the time and ambition to communicate fluently, you can spend months or even years studying grammar and expanding your vocabulary. But sometimes you just need some basic skills to get you through daily situations. In this case, a crash course that introduces you to some basic principles and building blocks of the language would do just fine. The same is true for OOoBasic -- if you need to write a simple macro that makes your daily computing life a bit easier, you don't have to spend time reading about methods, routines, and object properties.

  • Advogato; By Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton (Posted by Scott_Ruecker on Aug 17, 2006 3:27 AM EDT)

I first started getting significantly involved in SQL back in 2000. Within six months I had written pysqldb (one of the many reinvented dynamic SQL generators available) because hard-coding SQL statements I immediately concluded to be insane.
