Hi James,

2. Activate the data source pane (F4)

F4 doesn't have any effect on my Mac.  Cmd+F4 closes the sheet.  Shift+Cmd+F4 has no effect.  I 
double clicked on the Base table and got up something that looks like a Calc sheet with only one 

Do you have a "Fn" key on your Mac keyboard ? If so, press that first
and while keeping pressed, press on F4. If it a tower Mac or Mac mini as
opposed to a Macbook then I'm not sure because it will depend on your
keyboard. This is something that has always bothered me with the default
key bindings that both OOo and LibO use, because most of them just
didn't work as the documentation / help stated. It is partly Apple's
fault for assigning specific OS functionality to the function keys, but
also one would have thought that the OOo/LibO development cycle would
have picked this up by now.

Thanks Alexander.  I was doing it on a Mac mini, but I can try and create the db on my Macbook and 
move it over.
