Thank you for your time.

I managed to get some limited success by copying all the embedded files to the OpenOffice program directory and appending the "?defaultHoldable" option to the connection string (although I have to admit I don't know what that does). This way I could insert new records, but not view them in table mode - only in a view or query.

There used to be an option to insert 'oo' in the connection string...


...but I am not sure if this still exists and in any case it I don't think it can be combined with :embedded: which is a pity.

Unfortunately though copying all the embedded files to the OpenOffice program directory stopped the internal HSQL db from working so I have had to remove them for now.
