Where are macros stored?

OpenOffice.org stores user-specific data in a directory under the user's home directory. For example, on Windows, this is C:\Documents and Settings\<name>\Application Data. User macros are stored in OpenOffice.org2\user\basic. Each library is stored in its own directory off the basic directory.

It is not important to understand where macros are stored for casual use. If you know where they are stored, however, you can create a backup, share your macros, or inspect them if there is an error. For example, on one or more of my OpenOffice.org upgrades, all of my macros disappeared. Although the macros were still on disk, the macros were not copied to the new directories. The solution was to import the macros into the new installation.

Use Tools > Macros > Organize Dialogs to open the OpenOffice.org Macros organizer dialog. Another common way to open this dialog is to use Tools > Macros > Organize Macros > OpenOffice.org Basic to open the OpenOffice.org Macros dialog and then click the Organizer button (see Figure 6).

Figure 6: The Libraries tab of the Macro Organizer dialog.
