Description caolanm 2009-02-23 15:18:59 UTC
In tools->mailmerge wizard if we create a new address book from create, we are
unable to later edit it if we restart OOo. The URL is a
sdbc:flat:/file/system/path with sdbd:flat: stripped off it but we pass it to
SfxMedium which needs a file URL.

Patch attached to convert /file/system/path to file:// + that dir which makes it

Comment 5 caolanm 2009-10-10 08:59:40 UTC
The code now reads...

sURL = String(sDBURL).Copy( 10 );
//#i97577# at this point the 'URL' can also be a file name!
sURL = URIHelper::SmartRel2Abs( INetURLObject(), sURL );

which is an alternate fix to the fix here and should solve the same problem.
