Description: To get a list of Filter Name in Apache OpenOffice, the property of Filter Name used to import and export has to be exactly matched to the name in the list. This snippet will open a new ODT document and append the list to the document.

Note: This macro was taken from a thread at http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=3549, it was discussed for OpenOffice.org 1.1rc1, but it still works with OpenOffice version 4.1.
