Description Frank Schönheit 2009-08-24 21:58:44 UTC
- in OOo 3.1:
  - File / New / Database
  - "Connect to an existing database", Type "Text"
  - on the second wizard page, point to an arbitrary folder
  - finish the wizard, save the database document to an arbitrary location
- in OOo DEV300.m52 and later
  - open the database document you created above
  - select "Tables" on the left hand side
=> an error message pops up saying:
  SQL Status: HY000
  The connection to the external data source could not be established.
  No SDBC   driver was found for the given URL.

Also note that in the status bar of the database application window, no database
type/details are shown.

fs->oj: In .odb files created with m51 and before, the media-type in the
content.xml file is "text/csv", in m52 and later, it is "application/csv" ...?
Comment 2 ocke.janssen 2009-08-25 06:46:53 UTC
Already fixed in cws dba32e
Comment 3 ocke.janssen 2009-08-25 06:48:40 UTC
As workaround for a m52 or later search for a file named flat.xcu in your OOo
installation and in that file search for application/csv and replace it with
text/csv . That should do it.

Closing it.
