I'm making some progress. Here's my code so far: 


Public Sub OpenExcelFile(excelPath As String)

    on error goto Fail1

    ' <snip> The Excel method that doesn't work
    ' under LO, and which I don't own copyright to
    exit sub

    resume Attempt2

    dim starDesktop as object
    dim url as string
    dim doc as object
    dim dummy() ' Empty array of parameters

    starDesktop = createUnoService("")
    url = ConvertToUrl( ExcelPath )
    doc = starDesktop.loadComponentFromURL( url, "_blank", 0, dummy )

End Sub 


The problem is, since the file output by SAP ends with the ".txt" extension, Calc opens the new 
file as a Writer document, not a spreadsheet.

I think I need what is described in -- 
an extension that can wrap strings into the property values required by loadComponentFromUrl(), so 
I can fill the array of parameters in a way that tells LO it will be loading the text file into a 

Does anyone out there happen to have experience with such an extension, or know how to get the 
open-source code for something similar? (The LO Extensions site has a CSV-opening extension, but 
I'd have to modify it to remove the UI, and there's no indication at all of how to get the source!)
