Of course I can. If I can find out how to do it.
Why can't you run SQL update queries? This is trivial to do in SQL. The
SQL is trivial to execute by macro.
If you desparately want a graphical query designer for
update/insert/delete queries, then you should write one and store your
queries somewhere in the .odb container.
But this isn't the point, is it? The real point is that database front-ends
and macro languages are meant to make life easy, not difficult. You seem to
dislike "sugar" - worried about your diameter? The computer was made for
man, not man for the computer. Why not program in assembler - gives you much
more control and isn't really that hard (I speak from years of assembler
experience and with my tongue firmly in my cheek)?
You get what you pay for. The rest is about community. Unfortunately, this office suite has more consumers and complainers than contributors.
Regarding your remark on assembler code: A very high software stack imposes a new quality of problems that would be unknown on hardware level.
Fortunately, there is still the OpenOffice.org community:
