Save the "Base document" (it is a configuration file actually).
You may add some useful SELECT queries for your purposes.

In Calc hit F4 and drag your table/query into the sheet.
This creates a linked import range (see Data>Define...).

Perfect. At least now I can get data into a spreadsheet.

Next I need to work out calling stored procedures and passing user
parameters to the SP as well as automated updating (on open and on
parameter changing).

These are probably macro based rather than UI.


Thank you for your reply though. Very useful.
