Description georgee 2008-10-03 09:48:36 UTC
My adress database (for OOo2.4.1) ist a odb File. After installing OOo RC3 (the portable version, i can not use the adress database wizard to import it, because it seems, that the wizrad do not work with odb files. I only can use the adress database by using the navigator or F4 and connect the databse by hand.

Do you have registered the odb-file? Which wizard do you mean? We have (1) File > Templates > Address Book Source (2) File > Wizards > Address Data Source (3) Tools > Mail Merge Wizard Try using (1) after you have registered the file with Tools > Opentions > OOoBase > Databases. (2) is for alien formats.

Thank you, this method works. First registrating with Tools > Options > OOoBase > Databases then using the wizard File > Template > Adress Book Source. But why can the wizard not use the adress database without primerly regestrated the odb file. In my OOo 2.4.1 the wizard has done it. And odb is not an alien format. I think that many users wich uses earlier versions of OOo will have the same problem to integrate there old adress database this way.

I think users should be able to use existing odb-files with embedded HSQL-database in the wizard in File > Address Data Source.
