I was trying to run a macro stored in a Base file like this:
soffice "C:\Users\nuno\AppData\Roaming\LineMap.odb" "macro://LineMap/Reports.Report.genRep"
However it doesn't work.
A friend have debugged, and in SfxMacroLoader::loadMacro, the call to SfxObjectShell::GetFirst() returns nullptr - it means that the open database isn't listed among open shells - and thus doesn't offer the expected functionality (unlike Writer or Calc components)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. soffice "C:\Users\nuno\AppData\Roaming\LineMap.odb" "macro://LineMap/Reports.Report.genRep"
Open file but doesn't fire up the macro
Fire up the macro
User Profile Reset: No
Repro with Version: 18.104.22.168 (x64)

A DB with a macro
This contains a library Reports, module Report, macro genRep that only shows a "Test" messagebox.
Allowing to run macros, and trying
> soffice dbMacro.odb macro://dbMacro/Reports.Report.genRep
does not show the dialog when opening the DB. As mentioned, the DB doesn't have an associated shell in the list returned by SfxObjectShell::GetFirst called from SfxMacroLoader::loadMacro, thus not allowing to access its macros when dispatching the 'macro:' URI.
Tested this against
OOO320m18 (build 9502)
macro isn't executed there either from the command line. However, it runs just fine when executed manually from via the Macros menu.
Dear Nuno Seixas,
To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
