I have created an example to modify Libre Office documents the same way as Office 2007 documents. It's mainly working, still some problems appear:

- if "content.xml" is too big (for example 250 ko) baseX raises a java StackOverflow error...

- when you open your result document Test.ods, Libre Office tells you that the document is corruptes but it is able to repair it and you end up with the right document. Still it's not very elegant.

declare namespace zip ="";

declare namespace office ="urn:oasis:names:tc:opendocument:xmlns:office:1.0";

declare namespace dc =""; declare namespace text ="urn:oasis:names:tc:opendocument:xmlns:text:1.0"; declare namespace table="urn:oasis:names:tc:opendocument:xmlns:table:1.0" ;

declare variable $input := "E:/pop.ods"; declare variable $output := "E:/Test.ods";

let $modified:= copy $f:=zip:xml-entry($input, "content.xml")

 modify (for $d in $f
 for $t in $d//text:p[text()="Year"] return replace value of node $t with "ca roule") 
 return $f

let $target :=

 copy $r := zip:entries($input)
   insert node $modified into $r//zip:entry[@name="content.xml"]
 return $r

return zip:update-entries($target, $output)

Sorry, I failed to check that discussion page earlier![edit]

Thanks for reporting this, can you still reproduce the BaseX error in the latest snapshot? :-) Maybe you could adresse our mailing list [1] --Michael 10:43, 11 September 2011 (CEST)
