Description rifford 2012-03-11 18:09:44 UTC
Un message d'erreur est affiché pendant l'exécution de la macro.
S'il y a plusieurs instructions dans une ligne et que "LINE INPUT" ne se trouve pas au début de la ligne l'erreur "caractère inattendu" est affiché et stoppe la macro.

Ce bug n'existait pas dans la version OpenOffice 2.0
Ce bug existe aussi dans la version OpenOffice 3.0

It's impossible to get some progress here without usable information.
Comment 6 Joel Madero 2014-11-06 17:40:31 UTC
Never confirmed - moving to UNCONFIRMED so QA looks at it. Thanks

Il apparait que l'erreur ne survient pas si la ligne est composée d'énoncés où Line Input est en premier. L'erreur survient aussitôt que l'énoncé Line Input est en second. J'ai attaché un fichier pour la démonstration. Noter que pour tester la routine ROUTINERREUR_1, il faut enlever le symbole de commentaire à la seconde ligne.

Just a guess:

the tokens "LINE" and "NAME" are interpreted as symbols like variables 
if the token is not at the very beginning of the file, and the token ":" here is the case. so in the same way Name Statement as explained at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/vba/language/reference/user-interface-help/name-statement fails too ?

Dear rifford,

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.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
