There are some issues in the instructions for connecitng to MySQL: http://dba.openoffice.org/FAQ/specific.html#connectmysql via JDBC: (These steps are only valid for the MySQL connector) Get the newest JDBC driver from www.mysql.com Start OpenOffice.org Goto Tools/Options/Security press the browse button near "Classpath" and browse for the *.jar file(s) of your driver. Restart OpenOffice.org Open the data source administration dialog (Tools/Data Sources...) Press the button "New Data Source", in the name field, enter a valid name like "MySQL JDBC", and keep "JDBC" as type. Enter the data source URL mysql://host:3306/DataabaseName 1st thing is that I dont see any Classpath under Tools/Options/Security (shouldn't be Java instead) 2nd Tools/Datasources (is this within writer to display the datasources or is it Tools/openoffice.org base conections)

this is an old description for version 1.x so anybody who has access to this side should set 1.x to the description
