Description bob_von_knobloch 2006-10-30 10:37:47 UTC
Temporary space for database operations is using resources in the Windows User
Profile (default), even though Open Office is configured to use Temp space

In my case Temp is set to D:\temp but opening a large database results in
swamping "c:\Documents ...\user..." until it crashes (I have only 2GBytes free
on C:).
Program Install Paths are standard.

All document paths are set to non-default (network) paths.
Palettes, Templates, User Configuration and User-defined dictionaries are the
only paths that remain pointing to the User Profile.

I am reduced to using Access (I hope temporarily)- Bob von Knobloch.

Confirming - in Tools - Option - OO.o - Paths - Temporary Files I have 
specified some other folder, closed Office (incl QS), started Base nad it 
seems to use system-default temp path (%temp% or %tmp%) for some of the temp 

Repro steps:
1. Open file manager window to both new and default temp folder. Clean both 
from any old files and arrange so that both are visible simultaneuosly.
2. Generate big dataset in Calc (table 15000x20 should be fine), add table 
3. Select data in Calc, Edit - Copy.
4. Start Base, Create new db, click Tables, right-click - Paste.
5. In Copy table wizard click "Definition and data", "Create primary key", 
Next, add all columns to the right, Next, Create.
6. Watch default temp folder (circled in red on attached screenshot) - you 
should see one file to be created (and several in new temp location, circled 
in green).
7. As soon as import is finished (can take 15 minutes to complete) that one 
file disappears.
