 Michael ,

We zouden dat in het Nederlands kunnen oplossen, no :-)
You must understand that your odb file is just a go between, to make a "connection" to your original tables "main". When you first made your odb file you have to make a choice wath "driver" to use make the connection.
For some reason the choosen driver is no longer found.
Open your odb file and check under edit > datbase >"connection type" wath driver is missing .

Hop it helps


Hello;Being my first post to this mailing list i immediately take the
       opportunity to try and fix my biggest issue with LO; I can't seem
       to open my database file; i get an error message which i can't get
       rid of although i've been trying whatever that looked sane to do
       ...This is the situation;In the past i used MS Office (up to 2007, then i changed); and i
       have used MS Access to create some, rather simple, databases where
       i have data stored in tables.Before moving to LibOffice i used to use OpenOffice; until a few
       months ago... so i used it until version 3.3 and i was able to
       open all my database files.I wasn't even using the original MDB files anymore; i saved my
       files to the odb format because that was what openoffice would
       like me to do and i also preferred to use the ODF file format.Now; since i noticed that it 
really was taking very very long for
       oracle to get some work done on OO.O, i decided to start working
       with LibOffice.I removed OO.O first and then I installed LibOffice 3.4.4 (the
       latest release).Since that day i can't open my database files anymore; i can't
       read the original MDB files, nor can i open my odf files... well,
       i can open the odf files, but as soon as i open a table i get an
       errormessage. (it's dutch though, so i'll translate it for you
       guys later on).Maybe i'll first start with telling you what system i have and how
       it's configured;(note; i have this problem as wel on my notebook as on my desktop
       system; both are kinda the same when speaking about installed
       software... both generate the same error; both had no problem with
       OO.O)Softspecs; Windows 7 Professional SP1Java 7u1 X64 + X86 -LibO can't use java7Java 6u29 
x64 + x86 -LibO is set to use the X86 versionLibO is installed with ALL extra's and options except 
for the
       pocketpc and palm device extra's.I have NO other office-software installed on either device 
       or desktop)The error i get on both machine when i try to access the table in
       my odf file is this (i'll start with the original first and then
       translate it);De verbinding met gegevensbron 'main' kon niet tot stand worden
         gebracht.De verbinding met de externe gegevensbron kan niet tot stand
         worden gebracht omdat er geen SDBC-stuurprogramma voor de
         opgegeven URL beschikbaar is.English version;The connection with the datasource 'main' 
couldn't be made.The connection with the external datasource can't be made
         because there's no SDBC-driver available for the given URL.The thing is though; i have 
made special 'links' to the SDBC files
       in the options -java -classpath which link to the
       correct directorieseven files (hsqldb.jar / sdbc_hsqldb.jar
       / "Liboffice\basis\program\classes") but i guess it doesn't work.
       Also; i have the idea that java doesn't get loaded by LibOffice.Now please; help me if you 
can... what should i do; except turning
       back to openoffice 3.3...  since that's really the very last thing
       i'd like to do (not that i don't trust it... but their development
       is so slow)Or should i consider LibOf 3.4 as 'unstable' and revert to 3.3.4
       ?  that is maybe an option i could  shoot me with your info's :)--Met 
vriendelijke groeten,Michael Bogaerts
