MS Office 2010 vs Libre Office 4,1


#1

Hi,

a client asked me if they remove all MS Office applications (2010) from workstations and install Libre Office (last version), would all parts from Toad for Oracle (exports, Benchmark reports etc) work as before?

A little more … if Toad (12.x) is using MS Office COM then this might be a problem … but I cannot answer that … so I’m asking here.

If you have tested with any other Office version (except MS) please let us know your opinions.

THX in advance in reply

Export Dataset, “Excel Instance” format won’t work anymore. “Excel File” will still work (I assume Libre Office can read those files but I make no promises).

I think that’s the only place in Toad where we have any ties to MS Office, but another dev may correct me.

Hm….now that I think about it….maybe also import/export from Access.

Hi,

THX for quick answer.

Reading files in newest Libre has no problem even with 2013 file format.

Br,

Damir

P.S.

Hope some changes would lead to better Libre Office support
