Hi all -

I've just started a project with an old college buddy of mine who is a
telecom consultant, writing code that will run in an OpenOffice.org
spreadsheet to help with telecom record-keeping.

Anyone have experience writing Python code for OpenOffice.org? I'm creating
a UI inside a spreadsheet, with interactive buttons and dropdowns, etc.

It looks like the OpenOffice support for Python is pretty good. I think you
can do anything in Python that you can do in Java or OpenOffice Basic. But,
I'm climbing the learning curve figuring out what I can do and how to do it.
Any tips or experience reports would be appreciated.
