Description webmaster 2004-08-29 04:43:35 UTC
I have downloaded the latest OOo available to the public, and am impressed with
the initial setup and introduction of the Database Subcomponent of OpenOffice.
However, I am disappointed to see there is no support for loading MS Database
files, and that it is still difficult to understand how to set up a new db, if
you don't have a background in making them. Please make this as compatible as
OOo Writer.

Thankyou in advance.

I have downloaded and checked this 1.9.51 on Windows, with MS Office 2003
installed upon it. In Windows, OOo is interoperable with MS Database. Please add
MSDB support for Linux.

Is anything happening about this issue? Please say yes ;)
Comment 4 webmaster 2005-10-19 04:58:12 UTC
Please, if at all possible, set this for possible inclusion in OOo 2.0.2, since
2.0.1 is coming on too soon to worry about it now.

Kind Regards,

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
