Hi Tony,

I have just installed LO 3.5.3 and the native connector worked immediately
out of the box on Windows/Vista. Regarding ODBC: yes, my experience tells me
-- don't use it under Linux. There are bugs such as not SHOWING default values
for columns (even though they are actually stored correctly). Reluctantly I am now
using JDBC, but it at least seems to work correctly (even if it is a bit slow!).

One thing that has also bothered me with Linux/LO/Base: every couple of
minutes performance becomes dreadful. The systems monitor shows high CPU-usage
of my 4-CPU, 2.4 GH PC then. Only when I then save the Base-file (*.odb) does
everything return to normal. I have set the automatic save interval to 60 minutes,
but it seems to me that some action triggers the degradation. I haven't got
to the bottom of that as yet.

Oh, come on. It is obvious which version is which and I had the
Windows one.  The instructions for creating the driver are very simple
and clear and I followed them. When it said driver not found it meant
diving into the depts of Windows which I am reluctant to do.

Fernand says that the native driver does work for Windows XP. So I must
have looked at some out of date documentation that said otherwise.
In that connection, Heinrich, I am sure I saw something to the effect that
if you are using Linux you should use JDBC and not ODBC. Can't find it
now though.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions as to what I can do now to get
it working but I don't need to do anything do I, just learn how to get
the best out of OOo Base. Like importing data from a CSV file which is
much more complicated than it need be.
