Comment Macros, Forms and VBA (Score 1) 254

Does anyone have experience in creating forms and scripting for Calc (or another Free Spreadsheet)?
As in, how easy is it to bolt on an interface over a workbook with e.g. non-modal dialogs (not available in Office for Mac) that affect the worksheets? I know some python scripting is possible, but if anyone has a few examples of a more complex "program," I'd really appreciate a nudge in the right direction.

Actually, last time I looked, there were completely free MAPI connectors to break out of that ecosystem, as well as Free exchange clients that cover most, if not all functionality of the Outlook/Exchange combo, including calendaring.
It's been a while, so I don't remember the links anymore and I didn't take notes unfortunately, but they were easy to find (I believe, I started drilling down from and the enterprise gateway all in one live-cds like Zentyal, through which I found openchange). This was a bit from the other perspective (i.e. replace Exchange, not necessarily Outlook, but even that area benefitted from a huge improvement in relation to ~10-12 years ago, when I last was looking for that).

Adapt. Enjoy. Survive.
