You're right. My attempt to fool with options didn't work at first because I misidentified the 
file's character set, so I thought the "csv" in the filter name was significant and embarked on the 
quest to convert to CSV.

Now that I have the right character set, everything works perfectly!!!

I have put up a post on SAP's community network site to let others know it's possible to export 
from Business One to LibreOffice; hopefully it will help the switchers out there. I start my post 
off by publicly thanking you and Eduardo.

If you'd like to see the post, it's at:

That post contains full instructions on how to modify AutoOpen.xls. But for those who want to cut 
right to the chase without reading it, here's the subroutine LibreOffice can use to open a 
tab-separated text file output by SAP Business One:

Public Sub StarOpenTsvFile(tsvPath As String)
    Dim starDesktop As Object
    Dim url As String
    Dim doc As Object
    Dim parms(1) As New
    parms(0).Name = "FilterName"
    parms(0).Value = "Text - txt - csv (StarCalc)" ' Name is incorrect, but required
    parms(1).Name = "FilterOptions"
    parms(1).Value = "9,,65535,1" ' Tab seps, no string delim, UTF-16 charset, begin at line 1
    starDesktop = createUnoService("")
    url = ConvertToUrl(tsvPath)
    doc = starDesktop.loadComponentFromURL(url, "_blank", 0, parms)
End Sub

Thanks again!
