Trail of tears: MySQL, ODBC & OpenOffice 1.0
Joe Barr writes "McCreesh writes about OpenOffice.org 1.0's "best kept secret" â that secret being the fact that hidden away inside, completely unknown to most OpenOffice users, is a user-friendly front end for databases that is "a Microsoft Access (and more) equivalent." That may be so, but there is a very good reason why it's a secret: it's too damn hard getting OpenOffice and ODBC wired up correctly."
