Author William L. Thomson Jr.
Welcome to the Java list, thanks for moving over to this list. This way
we won't upset the others and of course our gracious moderator.

Just for fun, I starting from scratch installed JayBird, then Java,
then OpenOffice. While installing OpenOffice enabled Java support using
my recently installed JRE. All on a Win2k workstation.

I then started OO, added all the JayBird jar files to it's classpath.
Then I configured my datasource, and vola access to my db via OO. No

Under the same security tab is the Java check box checked? You did not
adjust the other security settings did you?

You may want to reinstall OO and make sure it's configured to work with
your JRE.

There really is not details as to how to do this. Especially in windows
it's all pretty much straight forward.

How are you setting up your data source. Are you using the correct class

Let me know. Also if you get any errors please press the more button and
get some specifics as to the error you are running into.
