Starting from a thread on the developer's list I decided to come here
trying to bring together users and experts.
I examined Oracle Report Builder (was Sun Report Builder those days)
while realizing my longterm project. I stopped even thinking of it's
use after some minutes, because I noticed it beeing horrible crap,
unusable for my purposes. If the code is like it's appearance for use,
then we should think of sheduling it's death for LibO4.0 creating a
replacement more flexible, suitable and finally: generating fun while
I examined the capabilities of writer and found many of the requirements
for report generation already present there.
So I'd propose to have a look by all interested on this topic, whether
it is feasible to create a report generating tool based on writer (or
calc?) extention(s) or template(s). If some capabilities are missing, we
could come back to the developers with a feature request in bugzilla to
offer one more area for development crativity going along with clear
 Longterm Project:
- Print all my adress data in 3 columns per page,
- only printing values not empty,
- printing from first to last record filling pages completely to save
paper sheets putting in my bag.
Realizing this was some mouse clicks in Lotus Approach, which I stopped
using 2002 while migrating my whole workspace to linux continueing with
OOo. Since then I'm without recent printed adress book for outside use.
Anyone interested in this task.
