How to Code LibreOffice Basic (VBA) to Automatically Increase Number

Problem: I am using LibreOffice version 4.4, currently I use “drag down method” to automatically increase the number, e.g. LT1, LT2, LT3, …., LT100

How do I achieve the same result using LirbreOffice Basic (VBA)?



REM ***** BASIC *****
Sub Main

rem define variables
dim document as object
dim dispatcher as object

rem get access to the document
document = ThisComponent.CurrentController.Frame
dispatcher = createUnoService("")

dim args1(0) as new
dim args2(0) as new
dim i as integer 
dim iLT as integer
 rem goto cell "A1"
 args1(0).Name = "ToPoint"
 args1(0).Value = "$A$1"
 dispatcher.executeDispatch(document, ".uno:GoToCell", "", 0, args1())
 rem loop and insert suffix for "LT" of the item code
 For iLT = 401 to 500
 rem loop and insert suffix from "00" until "99" into the item code
 For i = 0 to 99

 if len(i) = 1 then
 args2(0).Value = "06-st-0888-LT" & iLT & "-0" & i
 args2(0).Value = "06-st-0888-LT" & iLT & "-" & i

How to Resize Hard Disk Partition Without 3rd Party Software

How to Connect to MySQL Server (Host Machine) from VMWare (Virtual Machine)

Problem: I have an application in VMWare that needs to connect to MySQL database server in host machine. Both host machine and virtual machine are on the same server. How do I do it?


Solution: refer to the steps below …

  1. In host machine, one has to create a new MySQL User and assign privileges as below in Query prompt via phpMyAdmin or SQL editor:-
    CREATE USER 'username'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
    GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'username'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION;
    CREATE USER 'username'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';
  2. Once done with all four queries, the virtual machine should able to connect with IP address, user name and password of database’s host machine, e.g.:-
    IP address:
    Port: 3306
    User: (username)
    Password: (Password)


Good Read -> To Lead a Digital Transformation, CEOs Must Prioritize


Key Points:-

  1. most companies simply launched their own apps, deployed robotics, established partnerships with digital players, or are using data to analyze their business and make better decisions. The problem is that that these efforts tend to be ad-hoc and uncoordinated
  2. three ways to manage the digital transition are:
    1. Define where change is needed most
    2. Choreograph the change
    3. Empower people
  3. appoint a Chief Digital Officer – manger or orchestrator of digital transformation in company
