    Question Unanswered: Open Office org.base

    Hi
    I am not aprofessional just a hobby. My problem is that I have written quite a smooth program in VB^ and was using access as database. I don't like the big man so I am switching over to open office. How do I connect my vb6 program to a new database started in org.base - where do I find a driver that works that connect org.base to VB6 application
    Please don't tell me sql I am to old to learn!

    Dankie

    As far as I can tell from the open office forums, there isn't one.

    Your best bet (and it really is better) is to install MySQL. You can use OpenOffice to set up the tables you need and there is no shortage of drivers for it.
