Thanks for testing, OOo 2.4.3 is going back a bit in time...
So an unimplemented feature then ? I remember with StarOffice 5.x and 1.x, the SDB files contained clickable links to the
Queries (the properties of which could be edited, as I recall) which
meant that you didn't have to worry about assigning the query each time.

The links pointed to regular office doucments somehow related to the database. This could be spreadsheets and text documents with input forms and output tables (reports) or may be some documentation file. SQL queries were stored in the profile data together with the connection settings. The whole concept was so much better than todays "Base documents" which in most cases store nothing but configuration data and confuse the majority of users.
The advantages of stand-alone forms and reports are obvious.

Seems that that possibility was lost when the StarDesktop functionality
was removed and Base 2.0 was developed.


I installed 1.1.5 and gave a try. A serial letter with a few fields from the Bibliography.biblio table is printable without selecting the source table before printing. When I drop some fields from a query I have to select the query again in the print dialog. Same annoyance as in 2.x and 3.x. It looks like something that has been built many years ago and remained unfinished.
