Description of problem:
cannot create new converted file
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. From the menu bar, select File - Wizards - Euro Converter.
2. The Wizards Euro Convertr dialog should be launched.
3. In the Wizards Euro dialog select
3.1 Extent - Complete directory
3.2 Currencies - Irish Punt.
3.3 Source Directory - the directory where punts.sxc is stored.
3.4 Target Directory - directory where converted document is to be stored.
3.5 Ensure all other options are checked off.
4. Select "Convert" in the Wizards Euro dialog.
5. The Euro Converter dialog should show the files which were converted. 6. Select Finish on the Euro Converter dialog.
New converted file be created.
There is not the new converted file.
Additional info: the punts.sxc is in attachment
dtardon->gyue: I suppose you swapped the actual and expected results sentences, because Euro Conversion does not work for me.
dtardon->caolanm: Does it work for you? For me, in single file mode it only shows a dialog with message "Please select a OpenOffice Calc document for editing!" after clicking on Convert. In whole directory mode it continues on next page, but it shows no file to convert. Moreover, I've got the same (unfunctional) results on DEV300_m33... On F-9 it works OK.

patch to get this working
caolanm->dtardon: The DEV300 & 3.0.0 problems are now at http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=95702 A hideous mess of partial implementation and broken backwards compatibility.
In RHEL-5 we have 2.3.0 which is *also* broken in a very similar way. The attached patch here fixes it to 2.4.1-level which works. so we can fix this as long as we are < 3.0.0.
But in 3.0.0 it is again broken, with an additional problem that the api the code expects to use to work is now non-functional in a key area. So either the wizards should revert to the old api, and the old api fixed to work again. Or the wizards convert correctly to the new api. 3.0.0 is outside the scope of this issue. So we have a fix for RHEL-5 if desired, though if we resync to 3.0.0 at some stage we'll have to re-examine the issue.

checked in for >= 2.3.0-6.11
mshao-> caolanm, when I verify this bug in RHEL 5 and using version-Release: openoffice.org-core-188.8.131.52.11.el5, and following gyue's steps, the result is that there is no new converted file. Is this bug fixed in openoffice.org-core-184.108.40.206.11.el5?
dtardon->mshao: Yes, it is. I've just re-checked it with 2.3.0-6.11 and it works without any problem for both whole directory and single file conversions. Does it show any error message? Are you sure the target directory is writeable?
The problem is not exist now, the reason that I was failed yesterday is that I used a not very exactly punts.sxc file. When I download a new punts.sxc files from other place this morning, it works for me without any problem. Thanks for dtardon.

Download the punts.sxc
dtardon->mshao: The file from comment 10 is exactly the same as that from attachment 1 [details] of this report. That one just had a wrong MIME type, thus a browser tried to display it instead of showing save dialog. I suppose that was your main concern?
